Love Thy Neighbor

Hmmmmm.. sounds like trouble. I'm wondering if there's a therapist on here who can recommend some quiet speakers for both of them!

Thank you for replying to my post peter. But I think there is no edifier products here in my country. And even if there is i think i could not afford those. Could you still help me? Just pick one from the 2 choices. Thanks

I think you have to go vintage Altec. It seems to me that the A7 should do nicely - it's easy to drive, so you could likely just substitute them for your boombox speakers and wallow in the SPLs.

You'll have to look on the used market, but here's your quarry:

I assume that you are buying one of these for a pc-based system? If so, my guess is that your ears will be bleeding long before you get to sound levels that your neigbours will even notice. Really.

These speakers aren't designed to be played at high levels - they rated at 5-7 watts and the subs are around 25w. Power handling for a reasonable home theatre set-up would be roughly 10x these specs, and then you could bug your neighbours.

That said, I'd likely go for the Logitech combo. If used as designed, it should sound good in a small bedroom or desktop set-up. The Logitech sealed sub is an odd and welcome addition at this level.

Thanks Man

I'll probably go for the logitech even it won't match my neighbor's. Your opinion was helpful.
You're really an audiophile. Thanks again!
