I'm thinking of buying new speakers, mainly for listening to music, however I want a surround system for movies and the like. Still, 80% of the usage will be due to music.
Most of the time: metal, but else really bass-intense music, so the subwoofer should be -really- powerfull.
My budget: 300-400 euros.

My current ones: Sony SRS-DB500 ( ) (german)

300 Watt (2x75 for Satellites, 1x150 for Sub)
50Hz - 500 kHz (sub)
250Hz - 20 kHz (satellite)
impedance: 4 Ohm

Which of these two are better / fit my needs?

Input sensitivity: Satellites: 600mV 50mV (PC), 750mV 50mV (CD) | Subwoofer: 300mV 50mV (PC), 350mV 50mV (CD)
Input impedance: 10KΩ
Audio Input Type: 5.1 channel RCA input, Auxiliary input
Subwoofer / bass unit: 10 inch, magnetically shielded, 8Ω
Midrange / high unit: FR/FL/SR/SL: 3 inch (92mm), magnetically shielded, 8Ω | Center: 3 inch (92mm), magnetically shielded, 4Ω
Tweeter unit: Ф25mm silk domed tweeter, magnetically shielded, 6Ω

Well the second option has a little bit bigger of a subwoofer and a little more RMS power rating. I would be blindly guessing as to the quality of the tweeters, but I'm sure they sound great on both sets. So, I think the second one would have more bass, if that's what you're looking for.

Edit: Also, since the subwoofers are so close in power, you might want to go for the one that has the greater sensitivity. But I can't seem to find the sensitivity listed on the first one.

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

I don't understand how the 2nd one is 650W when the first is 280W.

On paper the 2nd one looks much better, but the first has great reviews.
