Choosing speakers for your computer is easy, but if you do not want to constantly hear a bad sound, then this question should be approached wisely.
For those who do not have time to read the whole article, I immediately give the recommended models of columns with a brief explanation.
For the office computer (documents, the Internet) any of the cheapest columns will suffice, so to speak that was (for support of working process) smile But I nevertheless recommend to be limited to the SVEN and Genius brands as at them even inexpensive models have acceptable quality .
For a multimedia computer (movies, simple games) it is better to take speakers in a wooden case of the SVEN brand with a total power of 10-20 watts. The sound quality will be much higher.
For large space or if you like powerful sound, it is better to take louder speakers (40-60 watts).
If you like music, especially with high BPM – beats per minute (you can check your favourite music BPM on bpmzilla.com), then Edifier or Microlab speakers with a total power of 40-60 watts. It will give more realistic sound in the mid-high range and soft transparent bass.
For games, you can take the speaker system SVEN 2.1 (with subwoofer) with a total power of 40-60 watts, which will give powerful drive bass.
Well, for home theater, a great choice would be a multi-channel 5.1 system manufactured by Creative, Microlab, Logitech or Sven.
As for laptops, there are several options. If you plan to use speakers where there is a socket, then take inexpensive computer speakers in a plastic case of 5-10 watts made by SVEN or Genius. If you want to use the speakers in nature or in other places where there is no outlet, then you need mobile speakers powered by USB with a total power of 4-6 watts. Recommended manufacturers are SVEN, Genius and Defender.
If you want to understand why I recommend these models, to understand all the parameters of the speakers, then read the article below.

The inexpensive Defender brand is also popular now, but the choice of speakers from this manufacturer should be approached more carefully, as their range includes both successful models and not so much.
