Hey, I use multiple montiors on my PC.

Therefore, I'm looking for a good quality soundbar that can go under my monitors.

I currently have the Samsung HW-M450ZA: https://www.samsung.com/us/televisions-home-theater/home-theater/sound-bars/320w-2-1ch-soundbar-w--wireless-subwoofer-hw-m450-za/
Problem is, there are no tweeters only mids & everything sounds deeper than it should.

I used to have the logitech z4 & would set them down so they wouldn't interfere with my multiple displays: https://techgage.com/article/logitech_z-4_21_speakers/
The highs definitely sounds more accurate than on the samsung but the wattage is very low (8.5W rms/speaker). This caused the sound to distort after about 10 feet away (i sometimes use speakers to listen to music while in my room but not at my desktop).

So I'm looking for a solution where the sound won't distort for at least 20 feet & I still get accurate sound (including highs). And of course it can go under my multiple displays

I'm currently looking at the razer leviathan: https://www.razer.com/ca-en/gaming-audio/razer-leviathan
& the creative sound blasterx katana: https://us.creative.com/p/speakers/sound-blasterx-katana

Which one of the two would you recommend? Or is there something out there that is better for my needs?

Thanks

Neither of your links work.

For 20feet, and to fill a room with sound - you need decent speakers, not a soundbar.
I've updated & tested the links. Everything should work now.
The problem with speakers is I have multiple displays, so I can't place speakers w/o hindering the display.
I don't need to fill the room with sound. I just don't want sound to be distorted when sitting 15-20 feet away.

Any suggestions?

I like the Vizio soundbars for the price. I tried out several of their models and some higher end ones and equal price ones, the $150 Vizio sounded better to me than some 250-300 models of other brands.

This should be good for you if you really want a soundbar: Vizio SB3621n-E8
I have a bit higher end model of that with rear speakers and a bit better sub, sounded pretty good for music as well as movies.

I did not like the Samsung models when I listened to them, to get some musically nice sounding soundbars with clarity vs just punch for movies, you are looking at things like this $500 Klipsch https://www.bestbuy.com/site/klipsch-3-1-channel-440w-soundbar-system-with-8-subwoofer-black/6336544.p?skuId=6336544 or $600 https://www.bestbuy.com/site/klipsch-reference-series-2-1-channel-soundbar-system-with-8-wireless-subwoofer-and-digital-amplifier-black/5510200.p?skuId=5510200

A $100 powered studio monitor set would sound as good with music, although low end may be a bit less.
