Good 2.1 speakers for under $50?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
What's the best I can get under 50 bucks? Needs to have bass control. Moved my 7.1 setup over to the TV and am currently using some tiny speakers meant for laptops..

These are honestly about the best you'll find that I know of for $50.

Creative Inspire T3130 - $49.99 free shipping

Recommended those to another member here, and he likes them a LOT better than his Logitech x540 5.1 setup.

These both look pretty sweet. I'll do some research on them. Also.. I would actually love to just spend 20~25 bucks on a 2.1 system, I've seen many. Is the extra $25 worth it?

Absolutely. $20-25 won't get you anything decent in a 2.1 setup.

$20-25 won't get you a good 2.0 setup, let alone a 2.1 setup.

Those Creative speakers are honestly PROBABLY going to be about your best bet, unless you can find a used set of higher end speakers for dirt cheap. I've never personally heard those particular CA speakers, but the ones I have heard sounded pretty bad.

I've probably bought 4 pairs of S-220's already for my friends and family, and for their price, they're downright spectacular.
The satellites are pretty nice, the volume control is great and there's a bass control at the back of the woofer.

Only 28 bucks eh? I was buying an audio conversion cable on amazon and those EXACT speakers where suggested. Has over a thousand buys. But I wonder if the 50 dollar speakers are on a league of their own when comparing to these 30 dollar ones? Or perhaps 30-50 is one range of speaker..

edit: Same deal with new egg. The logitechs have 1.3k buys, creatives 100. Hmm..
