2.0 speak­ers vs. 2.1 speak­ers

PCWorld (USA) - - Feature -

Sure, a 5.1 (five speak­ers, one sub­woofer) mul­ti­chan­nel speaker sys­tem sounds pretty sexy. But even if you were to un­earth one for $50 or $60, the qual­ity would al­most cer­tainly be just as cheap. That money can buy a much bet­ter qual­ity two-speaker sys­tem. These ba­sic 2.0 stereo set­ups, which are com­prised of just a left and right speaker with a sin­gle driver (the ac­tual loud­speaker) in each, abound in this price range. Oc­ca­sion­ally you can also find a de­cent 2.1 sys­tem—a pair of speak­ers to han­dle the higher fre­quen­cies and sep­a­rate sub­woofer for the bass. These take up more space but of­ten pro­duce more bal­anced sound. More on that next.
