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.

As far as Im aware there's no real difference at all. Theres a optical output on the PS2 yeah? I havent used it but I know if it being used with generic speakers.

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.
