I'm wondering if any of you guys know of any decent systems for under around 100 or under. I'm looking for a cheap set for my dorm at college. Thanks

$100 or under?

Save money.

At that budget, you're limited to cheap HTIB's and things that will generally sound like ***.

Trust me, I know your situation :) Last year when I was in the dorms, I had a NAD 3020, two JBL 3way bookshelf speakers, a dbx 15-channel EQ, and an Adire Audio Rava...:D

Expanding your budget to $300 or so opens up a lot more options.

Those three sites are gold mines :D

On the Creative Sound site, those FR125's do an excellent job for $150 a pair. Good front/satellite speakers. No crossover means you save money :D

No problem :)

Feel free to ask any other questions you may have.

I'm planning a project myself for my living room system - two 3" full range towers. Yeah, I'm not expecting much low bass with only 3" drivers, but I'm horn-loading them to maximize whatever's there. The magic comes in the enclosure...and the drivers are only $25 each :D
