bookself speakers + sub and a desktop computer help


Aug 3, 2013
Hi everyone, I'm not very familiar with speakers or audio and am hoping I can find some help here. But i do know my $40 set of speakers and sub are not very good. I'd like to upgrade to something a little better. I'm trying to find a set of 2.1 speakers but from what I've heard a cheap entry level sub and speakers performs better than the higher end 2.1 computer speakers in the $150-$200 range. I have no idea what i need though, I thought it work by buying a sub and speakers, plugging them into the pc and voila getting music but apparently it isn't that simple. How will i go about plugging things in and what else will i need? I haven't purchased any of the sound equipment yet though.This is the setup I was planning to get, I'm not sure if the selection is good, so feel free to add your suggestions as well. A polk audio psw 10 inch sub, polk audio r150 bookself speakers, and a t-amp. It will be in my bedroom so it doesn't need to be super powerful, but i do like a lot of bass when playing video games (battlefield especially) and watching action movies. Thanks for reading and any help and suggestions. Here are links to the exact products if needed, if you need any other details feel free to ask.

I think that will be more then enough, If you want to go even a step further you could upgrade your sound card as well. Just don't forget to get decent speaker wire for your setup; wouldn't make sense to spend a lot of money on a decent sound system and use 14 gauge wires.
