RE: best bassy speakers

My budget now after considering it all is 100 to 300 for speaker & amp. Id like mainly to play music from my phone but with the chance of the odd CD. The room is a medium sized bed room. The reason I like bass is due to the fact I've been in car systems and they deliver a lot for what they are as I said I do not consider my self a HiFi completest so I'm opening it up for you guys: I've heard the denon range is good but I'll keep researching

If you are in Europe you can get this delivered for free, right on the edge of your budget at €349.

RE: best bassy speakers

As above, a powered/active 2.1 set was going to be my suggestion too based on what you've said you want & the budget. Although connectivity on that Fame set may be a bit of a pain.

Use the Behringer UCA 202 usb dac (£25) as an interface.

Computer usb out to UCA 202, dac to subwoofer using phono to phono leads and phono/jack adaptors.

Sub to main speakers using the XLR leads supplied.

Set up as follows,

Connect everything as described above, make sure that the level controls on all three speakers are set to minimum.

Play some music and set the volume on your software player to maximum, increase the level on left and right speakers to the loudest you would normally use, leave the controls at that level.

Increase the volume on the sub to the desired level, make sure that both crossover controls are set to about 80hz, Adjust the phase switch for maximum bass in your setup and then leave everything as set.

Leave the speaker controls as they are, with all adjustments flat and simply use the volume control on your software player for normal use.

When you get a better idea of how it is sounding feel free to try adjusting the various bass cut and 'acoustic space' controls on the left and right speakers and the crossover on the subwoofer.

If you get in a tangle, set everything 'flat' on the speakers and the sub to 80hz and start again.

RE: best bassy speakers

If you follow my advice on this thread, you'll have bass that is significantly better than any car system I've ever heard. Car systems have all either lacked extension, or lacked control. You can have a good amount of both with the right speakers in your bedroom for your budget. Just don't expect them to look like anything that will impress your more shallow visitors.

These are cheap powered speakers, just 10 watts/channel through passive crossovers, basically carp.

These are fully active speakers with 60 watts for the bass and 30 watts for the tweeter, vastly superior and less than £120. 

Add a sub to these and you might actually get somewhere, but given your budget that might half to come later.

But anyway, I am just repeating myself now, the package mentioned in my earlier post is astonishing value, hugely capable in terms of power and punch if a little lacking in refinement. If what you are asking for, is actually what you want, this is way better than anything for comparable money.

Realistically it is a bit of 'a mugs eyeful', by decent hi-fi standards it is unrefined and frankly, a bit crude, but given the requirements of the OP by far the best 'bang for the buck' that I know of.

Driven directly off a computer or via a cheap dac preamp there is loads of fun to be had from this system (I have heard the speakers a number of times) or better still the same package with the bigger 5060 main speakers for €400. Just leave most of your hi-fi preferences at the door.
