hi community people ! :)

i was thinking to buy some bigger stronger speakers.... im not a dj i dont mix, but hell i love to listen to good music! i love clean bass kicks and not this computer speaker muddy bass shiz.

here i have been looking at these choices... my question is, which would produce a better result at the end of the day for movies/.games/music ON PC.

Pair those 2 with this sub : https://www.scan.co.uk/products/krk-10s2-uk-10-glass-aramid-composite-driver-unbalanced-and-balanced-i-o-xlr-rca-1-4-jack-ground-lif

//// OR THIS HOME CINEMA ////

to me the LG home cinema seems to be a better choice consider how much ill be spending in total... but will i be able to connect the 9.1 system to my pc?
i have got a soundblaster Z card , here is a picture of it . i was thinking via optical cable i could connect it for best quality and get the full 9.1 expierence from my pc? ofcourse i know i will need to turn on/off the receiver on the speaker setup but its ok with me .



EDIT : both setups come to the same price point. 1000euro. because if i would buy the studio monitors, i would buy x2 stands too. so in total its all 1000euro for either one.

Considering that you are willing and able to make that kind of investment I would suggest getting a real audio system for your PC. Speakers for mixing are often a bit forward and bright for long term listening.
An integrated amp with USB DAC and real speakers (maybe a sub too.) would give you a much better result than either option. You can get the sound to your taste and have an easy upgrade path for the future.
If there is a local high end audio store visit them an bring some of your own music. You might be surprised how much more detail and clarity you can get with entry level high end gear. They often have traded in units too.
A home theater package is usually horrible for music. If you want surround get a surround receiver and 2 good speakers to start. You can usually get away with cheap surround speakers so add those when you can. A good center and sub are more important.

hmmm :) so the rokit arent good in your opinion? because the reason i chose them is they have built in amps and so on ... so just plug and play . i dont need SUPER amazing speakers... but these rokits seem like great things to me atleast. i just want them because of how good of freq range they can handle... plus there is the sub ports IN the monitors, so besides those i will have that subwoofer rokit too ... i just want something better than corsair sp2500(or pc speakers in general) because i am tired of this muddy bass shit. i want good kicking bass quality... these rokit monitors+rokit sub should be enough though ? and yeah i think home cinema is a no for me :(
 
Then all you need is a better subwoofer. to un-muddy, buy a SEALED subwoofer, with no additional hole (no Bass Reflex) and no passive radiator (like a second diaphragm next to main driver). I assume u tried moving SW to another part of the room and no improvement?

yes i am iun a different room now. no carpet in this room. wooden plank floor now. the sub is in a corner and pretty far from corner. so sealed subwoofers are better? but SP2500 subwoofer seem to be sealed? the whole.. is not really a whole, i stuck my hand into it and its closed hole.
