K I need a setup for my dorm room. Here's the deal. Build me a setup within my budget that satisfies all of my requirements. Whatever one I choose, I'll send the poster $5 through paypal for their time. Try to sell me on your choice ;) Should be fun :D

What I need:

A good system that will last me while I'm in the dorms and will still be good for a larger room when I am living in a house next year. MUST have good bass ;) I need surround so that it can fill a decent sized room with music and or make a movie bad ***.

I want to be able to hook up my laptop and a tv to it, also must get the radio.

Budget: $500.00

Let's see what you guys got!

Edit: BTW I am not opposed to a little setup or EASY construction. (like screwing some things together lol, well anything that I could do if I am able to fully install a sound system in a car. I have never really done any research on home audio and now that I have a full load of classes etc I don't intend to start now.)

If you think you can spend more, check out the Dayton MTM or Lytle Five designs, they'd be more bass-heavy than the Auras would...but adding crossovers and tweeters raises the price significantly...

My time is worth more than $5.... And don't expect too much for $500 all together..... For $50 and $5000 I could design you a system....
