if I am not mistake you do not need a receiver for those speakers, It won't sound as good as higher end home theaters like bose or klipsch but it will be a hell of a lot better than the stock TV speakers, really good price too, IMO.

This is what I have and it's awesome! My link

there is some VERY hard headed people out there. Anyone who says a DD-1 isnt necessary is also saying an O-scope isnt necessary. Anyone who says an O-scope IN THE MINIMUM isnt necessary, is a noob. Forget the DD-1 for a minute, any reputable installer will at LEAST use an O-scope. Those guys in that thread are clowns. Hard headed clowns.

This.

If you're on a hella tight budget, the Logitech speaker systems are hard to beat.

Its doable, but you'd spend a LOT of time bargain hunting.

The Z-2300 I had, while far from an audiophile system, could output a lot of sound for not a lot of money.

The Klipsch ProMedia set I got afterward is better quality wise at low volume, about the same money, but has really bad distortion on the sub at high volume.

Bigger budget--get a receiver and a couple bookshelves.

Low volume--get the ProMedia

High volume--Z2300

For the price you pay to get decent quality PSUs, you may as well have bought a receiver.

Comparing the receiver + Bookshelf set up to the Z2300.

With the receiver, I didn't really need the sub. The bookshelves were louder, cleaner, and played almost as low as the Z2300.

So as not to completely crap on the OP's thread, my suggestion is to get a good receiver and a solid set of bookshelves. Run a straight 2.0 set up for a while as you save money. Then add a sub for a 2.1 system. Later, you can add a center channel (3.1) and finally a set of towers and move the bookshelves to the rear to complete a 5.1 system.

I stand behind my statement.

Your amplifier is looking for power at 13.8 - 14.4. This is where most are rated. Running an amplifier on a PSU is going to have the amplifier acting like its always in a state of low voltage. I seriously, seriously doubt a computer PSU is putting out 13.8 - 14.4 volts. All the looking online I've done has put it in the high 11s to the low 12s. As I'm sure you're already aware, these are numbers that we try to avoid on this forum when we are setting up charging systems in our cars.

The kind of PSU you would need to (properly) set up car audio in home is like this one.

And when you can buy receivers like this one for the same money, gain features that make way more sense in the home audio environment, and reduce the fire hazard, well, the choice is obvious unless you're looking for a project.
