The Bottom Line Bose's entry-level Companion 2 Series II speakers offer good bass and dual inputs--but they're not the best-sounding PC speakers in their price class. The tiny Bose MusicMonitor computer speakers are ideal for buyers who need the smallest possible speakers, but you can find better-sounding--albeit much larger--alternatives at this price. The Creative GigaWorks T40 is a good choice for those looking for larger than average size and sound in their PC speakers.
