    im sorry but i don't think it is possible to get any good speakers in that range let alone 5.1 with good base.........

    Either please define what do you mean by good !!! ideally good ones start at Rs.2500/- and above..........

    watch ur self
    here we are tryin to help
    besides ur question in that case is extremely stupid
    because u just cant add other speakers to 4.1 to make it 5.1
    get ur facts straight befor eu ask such questions and before u go ard being rude to members who are tryin to help u!

    get rid of ur 4.1 and get a new 5.1 ... thats all u can do ..
    a min decent 5.1 will cost u 5k ... so be prepared for that !!
    SHHEEEEESSSSHHH !!!!

    [edit= im gonna try and be calm abt this]
    ok listen up im gonna try and be nice ...
    for 800 bucks all ull get is a pair of cheap intex 2.1's at the max
    ur gonna match those with ur creative inspires ?

    just cuz there is a separate connection for a "CENTRE" speaker in audigies doesnt mean its possible ... (unless u match the exact same speaker in ur speaker set)
    go get those speakers ... ull know
    besides even if u manage to change the connectors and some how fit it in ur auidgy ur mismatching ur speakers ...which is a definite nono
    ull also end up ruinin ur overall sound
    what u need is a satellite ... and satellites DO NOT GIVE BASS !!!
    they are for midrange and vocals

    specially the centre channel
    also the centre channel usually has a different rating than the other satellites ( notice i said USUALLY)

    [edit] BTW its kindergarTen ...

    [edit]
    also ur speakers SHOULD be powered by a uniform source .... and together
    if u get a separate 2.1 first off the power supply will be different
    next u wont be able to power a "single" speaker ...
    usually in the case of ".1" speaker sets .. the power usually goes to the sub woofer first which in turn powers the satellites
    and if u say ok ... no ".1" then .. ill just go for a set of 2 speakers
    in that case ull get the worst speakers in the market ...which are rated at 200-350w pmpo !! and who's output sux ... let alone voice clarity .. forget abt "BASS"

    so basically i need to get "A" speaker which either powers thru ur creative ... or doesnt need a power source ( viz older preamplified speakers ) which again are worse than then 2 speakers i was talkin abt !

    anyways .. best of luck in ur quest
    do let me know if u succeed !

    i still dont support the idea
    and again those speakers are ... well not equal to the performance of the satellites
    anyways creative sbs 240 for 450-500
    creative sbs 260 for 500-550
    prices change ....
    this was the last i checked ( a month back )
    anyways .. best of luck with it ...
    let me know if the setup is any good !!

    [edit]
    PS: i apologise too for loosin my head so quick and not reading right in the first place

    260 has a higher rating than the 240 ... slight better performance .. for 50 bucks more .. might as well ;)

    dont mismatch the company of ur speakers ..
    tho the altecs are awesome ... u could consider them if u want

    if u can hear a demo before u buy that would be the best ...

    ( im not sure the altecs less than 5.1's perform better than creative tho ... it rules the higher segment thats for sure ...viz 4.1 and 5.1 )

    How bout 7.2

    How 'bout 7.2 You might have to double your budget though. The SBS 370(2.1) rocks and the bass is absolutely punchy. And the satellites are melodious too. Dunno if that would give a good effect though.

    Heres my 2 cents: There is no way you can convert creative inspire 4.1 to 5.1 as they are just pseudo-2.1 systems (unless of course, you tinker with the hardware somehow) that don't make use of the center channel. I don't think there is anyway you can obtain the proper channel-separation with any setup. The center-channel also caters to the subwoofer and as such, you can't just connect any speaker set only to this output.

    I like to see you prove me wrong and open my eyes ;-)
