Looking for Budget Speakers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for Computer speakers for my Macbook(original). My budget is $20- 40 dollars. I like my speaker to have clear and crisp when I listen to music even the lo-fi indie rock music. Also having bad experiences with computer speakers on my macbook for not having clarity.
What speaker do you recommend?

I fear you are stuck in a never ending loop if you hope to find anything "clear and crisp" for $40? If fry's is an option

 

Polk R150 $49

Lepai TA2020 $26

$75 in total

Recently go the GOgroove BassPULSE 2MX for my mom for mother's day. They sounded surprisingly good for small, $26 USB powered speakers.

The Lepai setup trog listed would be dramatically better, though.

Admittedly, I do not have experience with this set, but I like to follow the hardware on PartsExpress as an interesting alternative to the typical internet retailers, and this set has great user-reviews and is peaking my interest as well:

 

TeiNuro 2.1 - $35.98

Double-posted for some reason.

You might be able to buy some older Polk speakers like the RT25i, R5, RT35i, or RT55i. I would not discount the Monitor 5's. You should be able to get some of these for under $150-40.
