I just picked up a set of the Logitech Z-5300's. They are pretty nice. I got them open box from work for only $75 :)

Any1 else running these speakers? any settings you would recommend??

I don't own them (I have the model below them), but all of Logitechs woofers are a bit boomy, so I suggest dropping the bass level a bit in your sound cards config utility. I also like to give treble a small boost.

Yup I've had my Z-5300's for 2.5 years now and they're great! What soundcard do you have? If you have an X-Fi I can fill you in on what I use for my settings....

do they sell that model anymore? I'm trying to find the regular price but only came up with the z-5500.

They don't sell the Z-5300's anymore....they were replaced with the Z-5300e's. I'm not too sure as to the difference though...

Ok rather than list out all my settings....because I can't remember them all off the top of my head (I'm at work right now :P) here's a link to a little guide Superklye did a while back on the X-Fi. He had the Z-5300's at the time too. And my settings were virtually the same.

One thing that I definately suggest doing is turning on bass redirection and setting it at 80Hz. It got rid of a ton of unnecessary boomyness. Crank the crystalizer too. Well....put it at what you like...but I like it maxed out :thumbsup:

Thanks for pimping my article again. :D

I actually don't use bass redirection anymore. I adjusted which way my woofer was facing and it sounded MUCH better, no longer needing the redirection. :p Otherwise, I haven't changed a thing.

I have a set of Z-5300e and they sound good to me ,I think they are some of the best 5.1 speaker set for what thet cost ,and they are loud ,and my music sounds clean out of them
