Don't get the Logitech. Let me say a few things from my background as a professional loudspeaker design engineer:
- Plastic housing speakers: ugh
- Computer speaker "subwoofers": NO. Frankly, I've never heard any computer speakers that sounded good, at least under hundreds of dollars.
- Woofers 4" or smaller: no. Not big enough for any real bass. Minimum 5" or bettery yet 6" or 8" etc etc. One semi-exception is the Andrew Jones designed ELAC Debut B4, especially if you're going to add a subwoofer later. $179/pair and sound great. The bigger B5 and B6 are even better, if you can save up the money for them.
- Tiny speakers = no bass
The Dayton B652 I agree is a hard-to-beat value. You can also search Amazon for "Pioneer Andrew Jones speakers" for his
But really I think you should:
- Scour Craigslist, Goodwill, Salvation Army for a used receiver. Those are the best value for starter amps.
- Similarly, used speakers would be your best value, though finding good ones could be tricky.
- At that budget, forget about subwoofers for a while and try to get some tower speakers if you have the room. Later on, true deep loud subwoofers are like $500+ but there are some $130ish Polk and Parts Express aka Dayton models which will do well for starters.
