    Damn- Blew one of the speakers on my 5.1

    I have a sound card that is optically connected to 5.1 receiver that feeds a Polk 5.1 speaker set. I blew one of the speakers so now I have 4.1 sound. They sounded pretty good but am thinking I will slowly change out the speakers to something better.

    I had set of old 5.1 speakers and was something like that. Actually problem was worse because rear speakers wouldn't work or front speakers at the same time so I junked them and replaced them with better newer ones.

    which polk speakers? I have the CS1, monitor 40's (front) and 30's (rear). they sound excellent for the price and if you're coming from a set like the RM75's you'll notice a big improvement

    I am not even sure -I got them on ebay for a decent price -they are small 8" high by 6" wide but the sub woofer is huge- I had blown way too much on my home theater so kinda skimped for the pc sound but wanted pretty good quality

    I've already spent way too much on sound stuff although I don't care about the monies almost all of the time, most of the time I think about sound quality, performance and reliability. Not planning to upgrade for quite some time. Seems you're looking for new speakers mate. Got some in mind?
