For the longest time I've had the old Logitech Z313 2.1 sound system for my computer. After so many years of use and moving around, I'm looking for a more portable and more powerful system.
The Z313's wiring is aggravating. The 3.5mm from the computer goes into a controller, then to the sub, then to the speakers. Also, the sub doesn't have a control to turn bass down independently from the speakers.
So what I'm looking for is a sound system with these features:
- no more than $150
- 2.1 layout
- subwoofer with: independent control, 20+ Watts, ~6 inch external driver
- 2+ inch speaker driver
- flat-bottomed subwoofer would be better than one with feet
- easy setup, not too many cords (very important)
An inline or onboard volume control is actually something I don't want since I can control volume with my keyboard and directly in Windows, but if a good system has it, I won't mind.
