When Designing a Multimedia Speaker package these are the items we at GGEC look at:

- The Sound

- The Design

- The Value

Generally, music lovers will do well with a 2.1 speaker system, while gamers and movie buffs will appreciate a 5.1 setup. Music is nearly always recorded in stereo -- which only needs two speakers for the best sound. 5.1 speakers can upmix stereo sound to three additional speakers, but no sonic qualities are gained, just sound imagery. Movies and games, on the other hand, usually mixed to support 5-channel surround sound. Not all sound cards support more than two speakers, so it is advisable to look at current sound card offerings to ensure sales velocity is assured after product goes into production

Make sure you include the subwoofer.
Much larger than the satellite speakers, the subwoofer boosts the quality of lower-frequency, or bass, sounds. A subwoofer produces non-directional sounds, typically placed under a desk, but when placed in a corner, the imagery of the subwoofer improves preferably, though, it should be small enough to fit under your desk.

Don't design in more wattage than you need.
This is the sum total of the wattage of each of the system's satellite speakers and subwoofers. Though most systems are far less powerful (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, if you're not using your PC to wake the neighborhood). A headphone jack is also a good idea for late-night multimedia sessions.

If you want to also design your computer speakers with a home theater setup, a game console or an iPod (or other MP3 player), check the specs.
Not all PC speakers support those other uses. With a digital audio output, you can hook up the speakers directly to a game console. Otherwise, you'll have to route the speakers through a receiver. Some models come with an adapter for game consoles.

Frequency response reflects on sound quality.
This measures how accurately the speakers reproduce low- and high-frequency sounds. The human ear can pick up sounds down to about 20 hertz (Hz) on the low end and up to about 20 kilohertz (kHz) on the high end. Most speakers can hit 20 kHz easily, but they tend to vary a bit more on the low end. multimedia speaker designs that we have done for some of our customers.

GGEC has the resources to design a custom system, or we can build a system based on your own engineer's design.
