    Im sorry I know this thread has been created over a million times, but I just need some advice. Im having some money coming my way soon and I decided I should buy some nice speakers seeing that the ones I currently use were made for computers lol

    Anyways, I was looking at these: http://www.chemical-records.co.uk/sc/servlet/Info?Track=KPCS20

    What do you guys think?

    Im willing to spend up to around 100 pounds (can go a bit more if it's worth it), so any suggestions you got send them in this way. These speakers got to last for quite some time

    Thanks

    ive got them speakers hooked up to my decks in my bedroom mate, and theyre pretty good, they go fairly loud for their size, and the woofer is VERY loud for 30 watts, it often overpowers the speakers though, so u usually have to have the bass turned down a bit. Other than that, the qualitys good. I think you could probably get louder passive speakers for 100, but i dnt think u'd get the same bass or quality. ;)

    yh they are pretty compact, the subwoofers a bit hefty though compared to the speakers

    my mate has got them, they aint great...

    if you want sick speakers for cheap then look on ebay mate anything new for under 100 quid is gonna be pretty shite tbf, my advice is look for second hand, good condition b&w speakers, they really are fucking sick for the money

    example - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/B-W-DM-601-SP...0|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318|301:1|293:1|294:50

    you'll be able to get better deals than that though if you shop around my mate got a much bigger pair than that with amp included for 130 quid

    hmm can't really comment on those never heard em, best thing to do is look for online reviews see what's worth buying an what's not. again though what i would say is even though they're off ebay they're still brand new and cheap which generally means they're abit wank, look for the second hand stuff if you want the best deals

    Well I don't know they seem a bit too cheap

    I think im going with either "Kam Soundpack 2/3" or the "Kam KPCS20 Active 2.1"

    Their small and fit well in my room :)

    Those KRK do seem great and I would love to buy them but I need some extra money to buy new vinyls, so at the moment they are a bit out of range
