Default 2.0 speaker suggestions?

So far on my own search i've seen the Creative Gigaworks T20/T40 and the Logitech Z-10 where these are all in the same performance range any input on these? or suggestions on others would be great. I'm looking to replace my logitech 5.1 system where i blew the sub almost a half year ago and currently just using the satellites to listen. So i decided to go for a 2.0 system so i can use it on my laptop and my zen when i don't want my laptop on.

i'd go for the creative.simply because i love them and i kno they are reliable.
logitech has good sound...but reliability is their problem.i had a logitech 5.1 and i mean they sounded great,but not long after,i had to send it back because of woofer prob.creatives are more reliable

I recommend Altec Lansing, Klipsch or Logitech..

If there is no special budget then also take a look at JBL and Bose

Ive heard that Creative speakers are good but IMO they are expensive

Never ever buy Bose or JBL... you can get way better speakers in the same price range as those (or even cheaper). Tannoy, Polk, Boston Acoustics, Mordaunt Short, Tangent, and lots of others come to mind. Those sound better and aren't overpriced.

In the case of the OP I would recomment KRK active speakers. Those sound great and are relatively inexpensive. Great bang for the buck.

Polk, Boston Acoustics and Tannoy can be eliminated from the list just to name a few

Remeber that he needs 2.0 speakers for use with a laptop..
I dont think he is willing to buy speakers and a separate amp, it would look weird and it wouldnt be neither practical or portable

So JBL is crap?? You have a really exquisite taste for choosing speakers

Yes, they mostly sound like ass, no refinement at all. I certainly heard more than 10 different JBL systems as of now.

JBL used to be a great speaker company, until they eliminated their west coast sound. So for the most part, utter crap to me also.
However, I read rave reviews on a pair of JBL bookshelf speakers. I don't have the name off hand but from what I read they are incredible and sound like they are much larger than what they are.

I have used a set of Altec Lansing MX5021 and I am very happy with it.. The sound is very clear at high volume. Rich sound with much details.

JBL makes good pro products, but seem to lag when it comes to consumer products.

If you want active (computer) 2.0 speakers, I'm using the Philips MMS321 which I got from walmart for like $70 lolololol. Honestly though, they're really good and have suprisingly good bass for no subwoofer. A lot of people, when they hear them, don't believe I don't have a sub. Mids and highs are surprisingly crisp and clear. On the walmart website they appear to be ~$50 now. Also, the brushed metal looks awesome on my desktop.

2.0? Unless you don't have the space, or the money, which I'm not sure cause some one already asked and you didn't say anything. Then I'd definately get a 2.1 system. I personally don't see how the lack of space could ever stop some one from getting a 2.1 system, if all else fails just put the sub under your desk and use it for a foot rest. If your going for portability, then I just use headphones. So I suggest Klipsch pro media 2.1

Yea, I've owned the A5's for over 4 months, and I love how they can fill the entire living room wih just two speakers.

I think the A2s would be perfect for laptops though, much smaller than the A5s.

My cousin works at JBL pro. He really does say that the speakers are WAY overpriced for what they are and don't sound great. We just have JBL pro sound system that he was able to get for cheap, sounds great.

bigger midrange, and a sub
theres no reason not to get a sub. creative t20 is junk. the only way to not have a sub is to have large woofer cones in your speakers, aka large floor standing speakers. you dont get something for nothing. the t20 midrange cones are too small. ask a design to do more than it can and sound is sacrificed.
