If you are really looking for that powerful surround sound feel for your desktop computer, then you should check out the Frisby Fs-5015, 5.1 True Surround Sound System. It's an affordable, yet, at 3000 watts, clearly powerful, surround sound speaker system.

And, while having five seperate speakers for your comptuer may seem overbearing for some, those who truely want the surround sound effect will appreciate each and every one in this true 5.1 system.

At a Glance

Pros

  • Powerful subwoofer
  • Comes with remote control
  • Good price for quality of system

Cons

  • Five speakers make it slightly difficult to use with desktop
  • May need to upgrade sound card

Features

  • Powerful, High-watt Sound

The 3000 watt PMPO boosts sounds from the speakers and allows the subwoofer's ability really shine. That low bass rumble and deep, rich sound has never seemed so powerful as on this high-watt system. The 5.1 Dolby Digital will transplant you from your home office into the local movie theater. Just be sure to bring the popcorn!

Performance

For the price, a mere $80, the Frisby Surround Sound System is top of the line. It comes complete with all the cables. However, the unprepared buyer may not get the desired effect. Your computers must have a 4 channel or 5.1 sound card of higher to work properly, which may end up making your upgrade more expensive than planned

But for those with proper compatibility, the powered subwoofer and the five amplifier speakers can improve your computer movie, music, and gaming experience -- not to mention the unbeatable price.
