A good set of 2.1 speakers?

Three of my my 7.1 speakers have died and I'm looking for a cheap replacement as the others seem on their way out. My wife and I just bought a new house, so I would like to keep it sort of cheap, $20-$30 maybe... Does anyone have a suggestion?
That's way to low a budget for a set of *good* speakers. 20 dollars will barely buy you some cheap ipod speakers.
First of all, if you don't have an amplifier, you'll need powered speakers, and I don't think they get that cheap. Second, you probably can't afford a subwoofer, so you don't want 2.1 you just want some decent, full range speakers.
Push your budget up a little and buy these: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/behringer-ms16-active-personal-monitor-system $79.99, but then you'll have a decent cheap set of studio monitors and you can be done with it. I would rather 2 good powered speakers than a similarly priced 7.1 system.
EDIT: Here are some really cheap speakers in your budget, but I would only buy them as a stopgap measure before I bought some nicer multimedia ones. http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-980-000417-Speakers-Z130/dp/B003CP0OT2/ref=dp_ob_title_ce
