    Now my Frontech 2.1 speakers are dead suddenly.WTF.It was a very horrible experience with frontech.
    Now I am looking for decent 2.1 speakers or 4.1 below 3K

    I have listened to the sound quality of Creative Inspire 4.1 but dont know about ATP3.Creative 4.1 is good but not awesome.

    SO im confused here.which is the best speaker within 3K? ATP3 or Inspire 4.1 or any other

    dude.ur poll question is not justified.........u shud make up ur mind whether u want a 2.1 or 4.1 set....

    Id suggest buy the Altec Lancing MX5021 is dough aint an issue.

    Else go in for the ATP3

    I have the MX-5021 but I don't think his budget would permit that. So I would have gone for the ATP3 if I had his budget.

    MX-5021 is definitely worth the money...

    Creative has better midrange while the ATP-3 has better Bass...That's all there is to it. Also the creative is louder and is after all, a 4.1 which will give you better sound.

    I vote for inspire 4400...

    Ok first time I saw anyone say Mercury is better than Altec Lansing. I ditched Mercury for Altec and I have the ATP3 rite now. Amazing sound, booming bass and satisfaction of 2.8k. U might hear both the spks and decide which one to go for coz dood this is one decision u cant make without hearing a demo and dont believe anyone coz the ultimate choice is something that suits ur ears not somebody elses. For me my ATP3 roxx so hear up and then decide.

    im not telling mercury is superior...but performs better regardless of the soundcard....i upgraded my speakers from ht4500 to atp3 to complement creative 5.1 live soundcard...the difference is huge...atp3 suffers a lot..and bass is broken..though mid & highs are far good.since im a bass freak(ofcourse ht4500 is booming) & atleast it produced some sort of bass....so back to the basics.
    with onboard soundcard atp3 performs better...with refined soundcards creative/anyother wud be a better option

    At high bass how will be the sound clarity?Will it get distorted like creative ones?

    @shwetanshu
    whats the cost of creative SBlive 5.1 soundcard?Does it make any difference compared to onboard soundcard?Hoes the bass of ATP3?Is it just loud without clarity :twisted: ?

    I have no other explaination other than that I think (this is my vague idea I don't impose it on you) that the speaker u got must've been borken. It happens u know to many ppl so just don't get upset. Lots of ppl have the ATP3 and they love it. Ok now abt the bass you can't keep the bass on full and listen to it on high volumes coz it will crackle and it is not recomended too. So if u keep the bass on 75% then u might b able to go to higer levels of sound without any problem. Anyways AFAIK my experience with Mercury, Frontech, Artis, Tech-com and of the type is that the sub's give somewhat of a torn voice i.e. u get the feel that the cone of the speaker is torn of something it gives some pharrrr pharrrr sound (again this is my experience with the low-end spks of the above mentioned brand) But the low end models of Altec perform just well. They rock no matter how much they cost or which ever model they are.

    That guy was wizard and the speakers he talked abt was this
