2.1 system is what I've got. That's two smaller speakers, plus a subwoofer, hence "2.1". It's actually about ten years old, from GamingEdge. 6 inch subwoofer, which is plenty. Cost about $20. I have the console audio outputs plugged directly into the speakers.

Just have the subwoofer front and center, not too far from you, and the subwoofer + controller vibration will make you feel like you're part of the action.

Unfortunately, they stopped making this accessory years ago, but it shows that you don't need to spend a ton of money to get a decent gaming sound system.

There's probably something out there similar. A quick check of Amazon for PS3 and "2.1 speakers" showed these speakers from Logitech for $30.

I haven't heard them personally, but Logitech is a decent enough brand. The main thing is to get speakers with RCA jacks instead of bare wires for connectors.

Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

Edit: Further checking shows the Logitech speakers I referenced above are for the PC, which means extra work to get them to work with your console. Sorry about that. Maybe some else can recommend a good set of gaming speakers.

Check Newegg periodically they have some good deals on good speakers. You could also look into soundbars.

For your budget, that's about the best.
