Sorry if this is the wrong topic.

I'm thinking on buying some computer speakers to use with my playstation 2. I read some reviews on CNet.com and some
people said that the speakers lacked mid tone. But others said that they were unbelievable.

I did some research and found that the speakers were fine but the lack of mid tone was from a bad soundcard, tipicaly one
thats part of the motherboard and not a seperate PCI card.

But I'm not using them for my computer, I'm using them for my PS2. To play games and watch movies and play CDs. Does anyone think that I might have problems with the mid tones from the playstation 2?

Thanks for any help! If I find a page that tells about the audio specifications of the PS2 I will post it.

And a lack of mid tone can be fixed with an EQ.  If ya find speakers with an EQ you're in business.

I knew that, but it doesn't solve my problem.

I'm trying not to go overboard on the price, and I didn't see any speakers with equalizers. Besides I don't want to fix the EQ everytime I change music genre. And I can't use a digital EQ because I'm not going to use the speakers with a computer.

The reason I'm asking this is because i don't want to waste any money.

The speakers are the logitech z-2300, and they come with a RCA audio adapter for the composite audio to fit in the line in port on the subwoofer. So does that mean that they would work? I don't know because they are $100-$150 speakers and are compared to $300 sets. So I'm thinking that they might only work on high end soundcards. But is there a difference between computer soundcards and other devices like PS2, DVD players, CD players, MP3 players, ect.

If theres not, then that answers my question.

Thanks for the reply weblordpepe!

I have decieded to just buy the speakers and if there is a lack of midtone then I will just have to buy a seperate audio equalizer.
