Default 2.1 surround sound

I'm looking to purchase a 2.1 surround sound system. I don't what it to sound chitty at higher volume and I'm not looking for earth shattering bass. Something decent in the price range of $100-$150, links or names would be nice. I don't mind buying used either, as long as it works and not beat to hell and back.


Thanks

How large is the room?
Are you looking for just the speakers or reciever and/or amp + speakers?

Approximately 30 x 15. No, I don't need an amp, just speakers, sub and 2 speakers. If I can get a 5.1:

(2)front
(2)rear
center stage
and sub
within the same price range, that would be nice.

Ebay or Craigslist would be your best option!
Newer Quality (last 3 - 5 yrs) gear even used will exceed your current budget.

What do you/did you have in mind? I'm willing to add at least $100 to my budget.

Yeah, C3 is correct, it's going to be way out of the $150 budget unless you get an amazing deal on a used set. A $250 budget gives you some leeway, you could probably scoop up a used set for that price.

I suggest the same thing as Phil. Ebay or craigslist. High quality gear is expensive as hell, so your best bet for a total package is to get a used entry-level HTIB (home theater in box) that has everything included.

yeah lots of pricy gear out there.

He could definitely scoop up some nice gear for cheap. Or find a great deal like this:
Newegg.com - YAMAHA YHT-395BL 5.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box Systerm

It's $350 and FREE shipping. It also comes with a $75 rebate card, putting the total at $275 shipped. Great value, especially since yamaha makes great HT receivers.
