    You can certainly get 4.1 channel speaker within this budget but not Creative,Altec or any such good brands. But if u want to buy 2.1 speaker then get the Creative 2500 (2.1) costs around 1.8K
    I would suggest that u get a good 2.1 channel or 5.1 channel speaker instead of 4.1
    Recently I purchased Altec ATP3 (2.1) for 3100/- and u must hear to believe the sound quality.
    For 5.1 I would suggest Creative 5200, excellent sound quality and value for money, may cost around 4.5K to 5K.
    No idea of quality of tv tuner card but one of my friends has Mercury tv tuner card and according to him it is good.

    if u want something under 2k i wud suggest u 2 go for frontec-JIL 4.1, it wud cost u arround 1700 and cums with a FM tunner so u can enjoy radio too. JIL has decent voice and is better than most of speakers in this budget. reagrding TV tunner Iwud suggest u 2 go for external tv tunner from pinnacle. it offers recording, and comes with bunddled s\w and loads of inbuilt feature to lure u. though u have 2 shell out some xtra pennies.

    definately altec is a better brand overall...but since there's a limited budget here so i wud suggest you to go for logitech x-230 2.1 speaker

    its definately better than creative 2.1 and as good as altec ATP3....infact x-230 has slightly better frequency response coz its based on relatively new technolgy whereas ATP3 is in the market for the last 5 years and showing its age now...

    u can get any frontech or mercury 4.1 for u'r budget.these speakers are "built for price".when it comes to performance,bothe are of them are not upto the mark,try to increasing the volume above 50% distortion ruins everything.I would prefer creative or altec.Problem with creative is the output they give is quiet low compared to other manufacturers but clarity,build quality is pretty good

    Always judge the speakers by RMS value not PMPO.

    Hey guys Iam looking for good quality speakers.

    2.1 doesn't matter to me but it should sound great. I listen to a lot of rock and classical music so you know what Iam expecting out of it. Guys tell from your personal experiences and not from any media sources

    My budget is 1.5k.Please for godsake don't suggest me Intex or mercury.
    Gracias

    @reddgragon....well mate for 3.5k u can definately go for altec atp3 now, u'll be more than happy with its performance...but keep in mind that they are aging now and you might have to look for better speakers in future specially if you love balanced low frequency(deep resonating bass) respone which blends well with the whole midrange+highrange sound spectrum frequency response

    @kaustav....honestly if you want to avoid mercury and frontechs than u'll have to avoid low budget also(sorry if i sounded rude)
    i really dont have much to advice you here, all i can say is that you can opt for altec 121i available for arnd 1.3k, audio quality is above average and it gives you option to control treble(considering that u like rock and classical music)

    1.5K??then how about creative SBS series 2.1.Am having one.Great sound,but lacks low frequency bass,high frequence punch.but u can make it sound by using winamp coupled with jammix u will get great bass output.Clarity is pretty good upto 75-80%volume after that it goes hara-kiri.output of the woofer is around 11W Rms and speakers is around 2.5-3W RMS.Compared this to mercury its output is around 24wRMS,poor build quality,has great bass (hi-frequency)punch,loses out the clarity.

    i bought sbs 2.1 for 1.3k 1 month back
    sometimes,the bass becomes irritating,because the speakers tend to lose control.
    but if u dont plan to listen music across rooms,thi is definitely very good for the price it comes.i like it. when i bougt it,i didnt expect it to perform so well. also look for creative inspire 2.1 i suppose they ratail around rs 1800

    I would sujjest you to buy a good 2.1 speaker system at the price tag of under 2000 because you can get a nice 2.1 speaker system from creative or altec at this price. but if you want 4.1 speaker system then go for Mercury. However if you want to have a decent surround no speaker can give it to you which is under 2000. I would advice you to increase your budjet and you may buy CREATIVE PCWORKS(5.1) AT Rs-3300 Which i know has excellent sound quality at moderate price.

    Everone who wants to get his wish fulfilled has to dig deeper and deeper into his pocket.

    I see RED DRAGON increasing his budjet to 3.5K so go on man Get it!

    Creative PC works has a lower wattage as compared to Creative inspire but the sound quality has no flaw. And is cheaper.
