    So heres the situation.

    I have a room that is roughly30x20 and i want to install some small speakers in each corner near the ceiling. I also want it to be controlled from ye ol' PC. The ceiling is A-frame but i want them to be installed where the wall turns into the A shaped roof.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what to look into or can you offer any advice on some reasonably priced shit that will look good/sound good/and make my guests go: "Wow man, Thats really Cool!" I know that it needs to be amplified so do you know any good setups/packages or combined shit?

    yes yes..

    I've got my laptop wired through the headphones
    jack to my Kenwood reciever which is wired to
    two 8" Bose speakers mounter in the far corners
    of the room. The TV, Gamecube, PS2 and 5-disc
    are all wired to the reciever, too.

    The shelves are just triangles I cut custom to
    fit the speakers and comfortably into the corners
    and mounted into the shitty plaster walls. You
    can do all of this for the cost of a reciever, RCA
    cables, scrap wood and 2 40's of Milwaukee's Beast.

    the problem is that finding any powered monitors that are cheap is going to be a bit hard. given that you want to buy them brand new

    assuming this is for watching movies or the likes from your bed/couch

    you wanna get four of these:
    they're the cheapest (decent) powered monitors you'll find


    mount two caddy-corner on the wall facing you, angling down. and then two facing directly down onto the bed.
    it IS a little pricey ... the set i have are almost double the cost of these, though i use mine for work ... not just personal listening pleasure. but trust, these won't make your guests say "wow, that's really cool" as much as it they will say "jesus fucking christ, nice set up"
    they're powered and are meant to be run into a pc/mac. the upside to getting one these is that you won't have to worry about a seperate bass controler, as they have active bass responce (they're studio monitors)


    you can get a home theater system from any walmart/bestbuy/circuit city for cheap ... make sure it has a digital out, this way you can run the amp/console itself into your pc and control it from there.
    you can get a system with 5 speakers and a sub for around 2bills ... only problem with that is you have to know wether your soundcard will be able to transfer the audio to the console well enough without losing any quality

    what's your budget? let me know that and what you want the setup for etc. and i'll def. be able to point you in a better direction

    I always thought Bose were over-priced garbage.

    The fam bought a speaker systems some years ago and I was never impressed with it. No midrange at all, just those tiny little cubes and a powered sub. Yay. It's okay for movies but horrible for music.
