I am currently in the market for new computer speakers. I am going back and forth between the Logitech Z-2200 and Z-2300. I have read good things about both, however some people complain that mid-range response is not as good on the Z-2300 because the speaker driver is 2.5 inches compared with 3.0 inches with the Z-2200s. This is the ONLY spec that separates the two. Just how important is the driver size on those speakers?? Should I opt for the 3 inch ones or go with the newer Z-2300 2.5 inch size?

Thanks for any help

Too my knowledge, "Driver" size isn't all that important. I'd go with the Z-2300 2.5s. I'm not the resident speaker expert, though.

Speaker size, can be important. Smaller is prefered, if no quality loss occurs.

Well hoe big is the sub that is comming with it( the cone's size in inches) It is is a huge sub then you can get with the 2 1/2 inch ones...but if it is smaller then go with the 3 inchers.

If you need relly big ones though you can try e-bay and get some JBLs then get a seperate 5.1 amp. There you can have your drivers go from 4inches to 15in to I think the largest they make with a 1337 price tag is 30inches:eek:

Or if your cheap...pick up some broken speaker from a grarge sale and drop new drivers in:D I did that with some 15 inch woofers and am going to spend about $70 on each speaker:D

Well what about the price point? If your having to spend an extra $50 for 1/2 an inch in driver size then it is not worth it. Now if the biger ones are 2 way( woofer and a tweeter in one speaker) and the other is just one way(just a full rage woofer) Then spend the extra cash on the 2-way...It will give each driver the best frequencies it can handle:D I need to look both of them up... Have you looked at a pair of Klipich's? Here is one that retails for $150, is 2 way, and has alot more info on its drivers and frequency responce(31Hz to 20KHz is great) Also has a 3 inch midbass and a 3/4 inch tweeter with a 6.5inch sub:naughty:. Klipich also makes some very good home thether speakers...

PethegreatWell what about the price point?

:uhh: :kerian:

I didn't consider them, I just took a glance, and said, the Z-2300s are newer, and smaller. They were also highly recommend, elsewhere, meaning they are good speakers, from a good company.

Price point is the is the only reason, why I wouldn't recommend the Z-2300s. Then again, I wouldn't pay more than $5.00 for speakers, as I don't care about sound. I'm forced to have my sound off, 90% of the time, whether PC, or CD, or Radio. $5.00 gets just 2, old, beat up speakers, they sound good enough for me though.

$150 for a 2.1 system is kina expensive, but if there good then it may be worthy it. I just have a $30 pair of altec's They sound good for what i paied. I only used one pair of logtec's in my life( a set of head phones) there good so if that is what you were planning on getting, then go for it and buy them. You will enjoy your games and music better than just 2 full range speakers with no sub:D. Eh if you need cheap speakers monster...I can sell you 2 pairs of them for $5:D
