Cyber Acoustics Platinum CA-3602 3-Piece Speaker System
In terms of raw sound quality and volume, this system is probably going to give you the best performance possible at this price range. This is a solid setup which has two great satellite speakers and a dedicated subwoofer for tremendous bass performance and sound. Peak power on this model is 62 watts which is about the highest you can find in this price range and gives you great volume and sound. There's a control pod you can use to adjust volume and turn the system on and off, but it's wired with a 6-foot cable which somewhat limits where you can place it. The control pod includes controls for bass, a headphone jack, and an audio-in connection for a media player or other device, which makes this a great overall choice. The only real problem with this setup is it's a bit expensive and actually costs slightly more than $50, but you can usually find it for less on sale from a number of different retailers.
