I have a £500 ($800) to buy a 2.1 system. I will be connecting it to a PC running Spotify.
I am looking to buy a pair of bookshelves, a discrete sub and an amplifier/receiver.
The priority is to get the loudest, most bass-heavy sound for the money, that can fill a large house with sound. Music genres are loud and bass-heavy club music and electronic dance music (house, dubstep etc).
Sound quality is obviously important, but I don't need it to be AMAZING clarity, just loud and punchy. It needs to be able to fill a very large space with sound.
I could increase the budget if it will make a BIG difference.
