Good speakers?

Not sure if this would go in tech or music but idc. Been throwing partys at my place a lot but right now we just have two sets of those logitech subs with the 4-5 little speakers coming off it. Theyre made for computers so they just arent putting out enough to keep up with the amount of people. So I need new speakers. Will try to get roomates to chip in but will likely be my cost so they need to be cheapish (emphasis on "ish"). Any reccomendation??

Also assuming you don't already have an A/V receiver?

If you have a Fry's Electronics near you, they sometimes have previous model polks and others for decent prices.

Im thinking $100-150ish, Im not trying to turn my place into a club or speed up the inevitable cop arrival. I just want it to be loud enough to let everyone hear the music over the drunk people yelling.

Also I remember your name from before I left this place, interesting that youre still here.

Nope I dont have any (or really know anything about) any music gear. I have no amps or converters or whatever else you cool kids say now 'a days. I also dont think I have any Fry's electronics stores near me. I figured I could just pick something up from one of the big box stores around here.

EDIT: Also keep in mind the speakers Im rocking now are like 40watt computer speakers rigged to play through yet another set of ~40-70 watt speakers. I know watts arent everything but Im assuming that may be a limiting factor in my case.

Plenty of the same people floatin' around this place.

That's a pretty tight budget. Try and find a used A/V receiver and get those CF insignias from Best Buy. No, I'm not joking, believe it or not.

You can try corsair's sp2500. From what i've read the bass isn't terribly bothersome and are somewhat comparable to cheaper studio monitors. You could also get AV40s and get a subwoofer down the road.

Just search ebay, older recievers can be found cheap.

Then hit craigslist for speakers, rummage sales, church sales, etc, they all have them for like 5 dollars. (I buy them for my back porch since I am not going to put expensive speakers on my back porch.

Infinity != best sounding in their price range, let alone "ever".

For a college party house seriously just scour craiglist, goodwill, garage sales, etc... Quantity over quality just like the booze you drink.
