If you can deal with 5.1 the Logitech 506s would be my choice, but I'm a sucker for Logitech speakers.
They're like $60 lol. They don't have super long cords or anything but it's $60 and they are loud enough in my opinion but I HATE when people blast super loud music to the point where you're screaming at someone to talk. That's why I hate clubs.
Also, assume it's not a concern since you're on the PC board, but I don't think they work on gaming consoles. Just PC or TVs. --- Intel 930i, 770 GTX, 16GB G Skill Ripjaw X, Asus Sabertek, Intel 80gb SSD, WIndows 7 64.
