    and connected to my computer to audigy SE ( might buy xonar dg 5.1 in near future ). I need to change my speakers cause one of them broke down, my budget is arround 150dlls. ( i live in argentina) i use my pc for games music and movies ( so everything ) I wanted something that sounds as goos as my previous speakers, but can manage to mantain the quality at higher volume ( my technics sounded GREAT at low volumes, but distorted when tryting to listen at high volume ) Questions: 1) Should i get bookShelf or floor standing speakers (beside de dimentrion dunno if there is a sound wuality/power difference) 2) minimum wattage recommended ( besides de 50w that the amp requires) 3) do i have to get 8ohms speakers or i can buy other type ? 4) how con i differentiate between good / mediocre / bad speakers ? ( for example, are these good ? :http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-446852711-baffles-klh-made-in-usa-60-rms-nuevos-en-caja-microcentro-_JM ) 5) can you givme anykind of recommendation or complete guide to understand mor about speakers and make a good buy THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

    We need to know what you have access to, as in brands. Those KLH are at least as "good" as what you had. Matching watts is a pointless endeavor. Within reason...power destroys nothing...distortion/clipping destroys everything.

    IF you listen to predominantly rock/dance music, those would be great.

    Those JVC are a 70s design that went on into the 80s. They are a paper cone tweeter. Nobody uses them anymore(except Bose). They will lack the detail of a "modern" tweeter, but...you can always replace that tweeter with another tweeter...eventually. They won't sound horrible...just won't be as detailed as a dome metal/poly tweeter.

    You'd probably like those JBL E20.
