Hi all, I currently have the Bose companion 3"s which I received for Christmas some 3 years ago. I have been wanting to get more accurate sound, and was looking at the Audioengine 2's. I have limited desk space. Coming from a 2.1 system, how disappointed will I be with the bass, and loudness levels I can achieve in a 10' X 10' room? I was thinking of also ordering a Dayton sub 800 for $89.00. Wondering just how boomy that would be. I'm use to some pretty tight bass in my home stereo system. This would be for casual iTunes listening, but I hate boomy bass. About the only place I could put the sub would be under my desk, or just to the side of it. Problem is both situations would pretty much enclose the sub on 3 sides. My bose system actually sounds decent on the low end to maybe 80 hz if it's not pushed hard. Any input would be great. I have now way of auditioning either speaker.
from what i heard from the A2s, they offer controlled performance. you would enjoy. and the bass is subdued.
the A5s offer way more bass, a wider image, and more transparent and detailed sound.
Was just looking at their P4's. Their passive, but I could buy a T Amp for around $50.00. At least the woofer is 4". The size would be as big as I could go on my desktop. A2 no clutter, P4 moe wires.
