    Bose Companion 2 Series ll vs Creative T20 and T40

    hi i am currently looking for a 2.0 setup and was wondering which of the 3 is better in terms of sound quality? is the T40 the best sounding of all? cos i understand that there is an extra transducer on it. i will be going down to the showrooms to give these speakers a listen for myself but before i do so, is there anything that i should be listening out for?

    in other words, i would like opinions on how each speaker sounds compared to the others.

    thanks!

    oh and do check out my WTB thread below if you happen to have these speakers for sale!

    Dude, sorry, I don't think you'll be getting much of a useful response from us guys here in the forum. We're all into custom setups and I don't think there are many Bose fans either.

    From what I auditioned before, the t40 needs some distance for the sound to develop aka more tv speakers then pc speakers.

    The T20 lacks bass but is great otherwise.

    The Bose is just "Buy other Sound Equipment".

    Any audio brands are generally subjected to heavy fanboy bashing especially in forums. Suggest u go audition them yourself and decide which to get.

    The Bose is quite expensive but it is actually a very good system. If it is within your budget, go for it, you won't regret it.

    I have Bose Companion 2s on some of my systems because it is small, convenient and sounds good. The other thing that you may want to consider is the new generation Bose Music Monitors. Those are absolutely amazing for music but a little weak on bass and they cost more.

    The Creative speakers are pretty decent for the price but they are not great speakers.

    Even though the vocal majority of this forum is into USB DACs and custom setups, there are others who are into stock speaker systems.

    The main aim of a public forum is an exchange of information for everyone. The last thing it needs is to become a niche and elitist gathering.

    Alright, my bad. I was just implying that he may be better off asking elsewhere, since the thread was initially empty.

    You should have given some time for people to reply first.

    For budget conscious wise people, I will definately stay away from Bose. IMO, there are better deals to be had with the money you spend on it.

    Sadly, Bose does deserve some bashing because their products are never cheap and they do have alot of "gimmicky" features. On the other hand, they also have some nice products but at a higher price when compared to the competition.

    The problem is that you can't do a simple comparison between a Bose and a Logitech or Creative because it is better but it also costs more.

    Don't know about you guys, but for multimedia speakers, I'll definitely go for the Altec Lansing MX5021. It has some serious bass, and it does pretty well with gaming/movies and some light music. Last known price to me is $218. How much do the Bose systems cost anyway?
