Just buy some used logitech z3 z523 for 30$.. they will give you a decent bass and sound for movies and games and music.. Or even better buy some wooden satelites from and hook them up to a sub. You can make great systems for 50$ if you know what are doing.

imagine paying more than 50$ for speakers. Unless you host parties and need quality sound there's no point

my friend bought these https://amzn.to/2VqLv9w. Sound is not that "expensive" but it's ok. We tried it with different music styles. If you equalize it, you'll enjoy it

Get used speakers from goodwill and use a $30 dollar lepai. I actually use an old set of speakers from a old microsystem, lol

Right off the dude says if you want good sound, don't even bother with speakers, just get headphones. Almost made me not want to watch anymore after that cause of that slanted remark, pretty much making anything said after that not trustworthy. I can't stand to wear headphones. Just don't like the feel of something wrapped around my head. I'm old school, gotta have the speakers baby! Nothing beats the sound of speakers in front of you. Headphones suc.

+Professor Scraggly cheers thank you very much!

You can do that for sure... However, you'll need a more powerful amp that has a remote and more inputs. Something like the Topping MX3 or SMSL AD18, which aren't as cheap as the amp they show here, but you get what you pay for in features and performance.

Love budget speaker shopping at thrift stores actually, just make sure you get all the components and all of it works. See thrift stores have no idea what to do with speakers so most are priced exactly the same, I found 200 dollar creative gigaworks for 5 dollars! Unf they tend to disconnect the power adapter so you'll have to search for that or even buy one on Amazon but your cost tends to be under 20 bucks and you should get a higher tier sound

Guys, I have an old pair of beats studio headphones and really love the way they "separate" the sounds. Usually on speakers they sound all mashed up it's like they are blended together. Although I haven't really tried a lot of brands or some "pro" stuff, I'd really like to replicate the sound of the Beats studio on a speaker system. This is for music by the way. I like listening to all kinds of genres from classical to dubstep, etc. Any advice?

Most headphones aren't very good. They artificially boost the bass which clouds the highs and midrange. As for dirt cheap speakers, I keep a pair of 2.0 Portable USB computer speaker by Cyber Acoustics (CA-2988) I got at Staples for $14 in my laptop bag. Nice clarity, though obviously not for heavy bass drum sounds

gino (1 year ago)
very very good video indeed. Thanks a lot for the very valuable speakers picking.  But i have a comment on listening through headphone.  Personally i find the lack of sound coming from the front uncomfortable because not natural.  This is the very limit, at least for me, of listening through headphones. To be fair some HPs are better than others at filling the front but still the sensation of the sound confined mainly to the L and R sides of the head is very strong and not pleasant to the brain.   The day they will overcome this i will listen only to HPs.  I swear.

If it was a good sub..then ya the floor, But when the "Sub" is a 4-5" WOOFER...Crossed over at 250 freakin hertz Placement on the desk in the center can help with the localization of the subwoofer, which is a problem with cheaper Small PC speakers. Spend 100 on some bookshelf speakers, like Fluance SX6 , BIC DV62Si, Micca M42x and a Lepai 2020a+ Amp. Upgrade the amp later with a SMSL AD18 (built in DAC, 50x2w BT with APTX, Headphone out,Sub out, NFC, Remote) $145 when the time comes.

i have 6 old amps 10 sets of speakers 3 stereo EQs all of which i collected over the years from pawn shops etc.. I spent MAYBE $600 on all of it ..and I can make ANYTHING sound awesome .. i love Gustav Holst the most.. Mars 'the bringer of war..!!! i EQ to get the most from each amp and speaker then just turn up and down various volume levels to get the best sound for the music at the time. the speaker sets are placed all over the sound room for 'complete spacial saturation' each configuration has a natural frequency sweet spot so if i want more bass i turn up the bass sweet spot configuration..more middle..the mid config..etc..works awesomely and at full tolerance i can get over 120 decibels easy (not that I would want that continuously though lol). ...its a thing of beauty.. ;) you don't need a $10,000 system for great sound..just enough stuff to 'fill in all the blanks' Cheers

After watching the videos for the Under $100 and the $150 to $200 speaker reviews plus some other bookshelf speaker reviews, I opted for the SMSL amp with a set of Polk T-15 bookshelf speakers.  I spent about 65 bucks on the amp and only 50 bucks for the pair of Polk T-15.  After purchasing some speaker wire and 3.5mm to RCA plug adapter to go from the computer to the amp, I was into the entire system for about 125 bucks.  The independent amp with regular bookshelf speakers is absolutely the most economical way to get the best sound for your computer system.  The Polk audio T-15 speakers for $50 a pair was a great hit and I have no need for a sub. I also add the app equalizer Boom 2 to control the sound.  Amazing sound for frugal dollars.  Thanks Mayflower electronics for the advice, plus Monoprice is a very well priced electronics store, I picked up my wiring supplies from them.

lol - carbon fiber won't work! Creative Gigaworks T40. You can find them for about $110, but I'm not 100% sure where. If not those, then the T20's will be excellent for $60. I'm not a fan of the Mackie CR3 - more hype than actual good. Many issues in sound quality. The Creative Gigaworks T40 blow them to pieces. If you really want to keep your budget tight, but are willing to spend a little extra (or have an amp), the Pioneer SP-BS22-LR are apparently phenomenal.

my personal speaker guide: buy some very old high class speakers... some idiot throws away for dirty cheap money... learn how to do reconeing / refoaming on youtube ... get an old but gold working stereo amp... a lot of fools sell spakers wiuthout a clue. i use my dads first technics amp he buyed in 1986... a technics su-v55a he gave it to me cause he wanted to have a souroundsystem... i buyed some infintiy reference 60 i buyed from an old lady... for 20 bucks... she had it on her attic from an former lover... i had to buy reconeing-sets for all speakers.. ordered it from the US 8$ each.... it tooked me a lot of hours to clean it from the old foam and adhesive.... but i did it with tutoraials... 1 day of work... 1 day wayting for the adhesive to get dry.... now i have a stereosystem that kicks ass... a system like that new would have cost me serval hundred €. also i clean my amp once a year like my father did.... get the dirt out of the potis.... use contactspray.... so it will work and work.

If you want good bookshelf speakers Fluance AV5's are my recommendation by far I bought a second pair because they sound so good.
KiemPlant (1 year ago)
My dad gave me a *JVC Integrated Stereo Amplifier* and a *Realistic Seven Band Stereo Frequency Equalizer.* With my setup right now I have 2x2 speakers hooked up to it and it sounds very good. 2 Decent sized speakers on the floor with amazing bass. But I want to make a new desk pretty soon in a black/white theme and I have 2 smaller speakers standing on my desk behind my monitors (too small to fit on the sides) and I want to replace them with some decent speakers so that it fits with my setup.

Connor G (1 year ago)
Sorry people but if you want good sound quality for cheap money, go for vintage gear! You can go to your local goodwill, Salvation Army, thrift store, eBay, Craigslist, etc... You'll be amazingly surprised with what you can find for cheap money! Look out for names like JBL, EPI, Paradigm, Pioneer, Sansui, Marantz, Klipsch, Canton, Kenwood, Energy, Luxman, Accuphase, H.H. Scott, Boston Acoustics, Mirage, Etc... Vintage audio is super under-rated and deserves a look at!

I'm looking for a pair of actve speakers for my turntable that is in my small room. Which speakers on your list would you recommend me?
Brassplyer (1 year ago)
Here's what you do for a kickass budget setup. Find a pair of RCA RS2654 Bass Reflex speakers either with or without their original CD/Tuner/Receiver. Find a pair of RCA 40-5022 bookshelf speakers - which are probably virtually identical to the Dayton Audio B-652's which I'm sure will work fine as well. If you don't have the original RCA RS2654 main unit, then get a Sony STR-DH130 with 4 135 watt channels or similar, as long as it has an A and a B set of channels. Hook the RS2654 speakers to one channel, hook the 40-5022's to the other. Put the 40-5022's on top of the RS2654's. Run both A & B channels. The RS2654's will take care of the bass and part of the mids, the 40-5022's will give you another part of the mids and the high's with their tweeter. Tweak the bass and treble to your liking. It'll sound like some of the $1000 speakers at Best Buy.
