Default Which 2.1 speaker set has the best bass?

I'm currently stuck with Boston Acoustics BA745's, and want new speakers.

The best I've ever heard are the Klipsch Promedia 2.1's, but if you know of a better set, let me know.

(I posted the above to let you know my personal preference for bass and sound is, so go by it)

People think I've stopped lying...but I've just gotten better at it!

I'm pretty sure those are what one of my roommates used to have (until he spilled water INTO the woofer [I have no idea how] and destroyed them).

At 1/3 of the volume, they were floor shaking. In the dorm last year, I could hear his speakers 200-ft down the hall with his door closed and other people near me playing music loud.

They are ridiculous speakers.

sounds like the right ones

I've heard the Logitechs like the set you have are good too.

Just out of interest, are you just after bass, or you looking for good sound quality also? Either way, I think the Klipsch are your best bet, the Logitechs arent really what could be called "good" bass, its just loud!
