Dorm Room Speakers?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone :). I am currently in college, and I am looking for an awesome speaker setup for my dorm. I was thinking of a 2.1 system or maybe 2.0 system. I don't have enough room for a 5.1 or 7.1 system. My speakers are for music and movies/television. I do listen to dubstep, so I do enjoy bass, but I listen to other music as well (Rise Against, Reggae, Coldplay, and so on).


So far, I have been looking at the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 Computer Speakers. Anyone have any other suggestions?


Budget: $150 ($100 sweet spot)

Either the Promedias or a used/reasonable pair of studio monitors like M-Audio are going to do pretty well as they don't really require a separate amp or any gear, with the right cable you can even hook monitors directly to an iPod.

Thanks for the advice. I have also been looking at the M-Audio AV40's and AV30's. I do like a some bass though, and I don't know if they will pump out enough.

There's always bass boost/eq.  If you want real bass, adding a small sub later is the way to go.   Even most big bookshelf speakers have pretty anemic bass compared to any sub.  Finding a tiny sunfire sub for cheap should be a life goal and even the teeniest one will eat your children.

Sunfire products seem overly power for a dorm room, no?
