Among a 2.1 or 5.1 Speaker which is best for home theater system
  

Which one will you choose among 2.1 and 5.1 speaker system. I have a home theater system with a PC. All are new stuff just purchased some month ago. I did not go for the speakers. Now I want to buy one and for that I need help to choose between an 2.1 and 5.1 speaker. I found that 5.1 is better but the setup of the same is messy. I had heard sound quality of 2.1 speaker also which is much more better and nice. Thanks.

Basically the actual test of pc speakers appear while playing games. A 2.1 speaker comes with two sets of speakers, which are responsible for high and mid range sound and with an additional speaker cabinet for the low notes. This bass box or the subwoofer in an another support for high sound output. In this surround sound is pleasing. In an 5.1 speaker systems you can get sound from all sides. There are four tweeters and it is placed on the left and right, in front of and behind of the PC. The fifth one is placed in the center. So that's how sounds is adjusted.

Your computer must have a sound card installed. On today's motherboard this comes integrated on the the motherboard. You can use a better sound card for connection of a 2.0-or 2.1-system sound card with an analog output ranges. For connecting 5.1 speakers should be available three analog outputs. Is the speaker system equipped with digital inputs, digital outputs, corresponding to the sound card for a smooth playback of advantage. You can take advantages of this connection to configure your sound system.

With the 2.1 you have a listen to Stereo sound which is usually with two speakers and a subwoofer. With the 5.1 you have a multi-channel listening which is best recommended for home theater with five speakers and a subwoofer. The 5.1 allows you to watch movies in high quality as Dolby Digital, and gives an effect of its 3D sound quality. If you watch movies the 5.1 worth of music if not for the 2.1 is quite sufficient even for the same price as 5.1 get a better quality or more power. The games can also benefit from the 5.1, remains to be seen if it's important for you to have a sound environment in which gaming is maximum.

The 5.1 is much better if you can afford. 5.1 surround systems have 5 speakers and a subwoofer. These speakers are sold either separately or as a complete kit. ty sound as good as the column, in any case better than that obtained with a home cinema amplifier. If you do not want a new amplifier, you can always connect the speakers to home cinema amplifier system, the end of the day the sound quality mainly depends on the speaker.
Some famous speaker models :
Logitech OEM S-120
  • Logitech X 210
  • Fusion Car Speakers
  • Bose Companion 3
  • Guillemot Thrust Master 5.1
  • Kenwood KFC M6932A Auto
  • Sony XS F6936 Auto
  • Logitech X 140
  • Pioneer S-V24
  • NGS Wireless Speakers

It is your choice which one to go for. In my views if you are investing then 5.1 is best for the same. There is also an 2.0 systems which is an stereo system. It has two speakers that are placed on the left and right of the monitor. In the same way 2.1 and 5.1 system. 5.1 speakers provide surround sound which consist of a bass cabinet and five speakers that are set up around the system. The prices is bit higher for the 5.1 speakers but they has good quality.
