Creative A250 2.1 Multimedia Speaker System
If you want to stay a bit low of the $50 price point, then give this system a good look. You still get excellent 2.1 sound with a pair of satellite speakers and a subwoofer. The satellites are nice and small, so you can position them in a wide range of locations, though you'll need a good spot for the subwoofer just like any other 2.1 setup. However, this is a down-firing subwoofer so it might not be a good choice if you're on the second floor of a house or apartment. One thing to keep in mind with this system is it doesn't include any type of control pod, meaning you'll need to be able to reach the volume knob on the satellite by hand to control your sound output. If you're looking to save a little extra money and still get great 2.1 audio, then give this model a look.
