    I need to buy a pair of speakers+sub+amp for an old CRT TV. I have a very low budget (around 150$). Is there anything around at that price? Please consider that I settle for a 2+1 system. Thanks for help!

    Yes you can fit 2.1 at $150...but. What are your sources(dvd/vcr) and does this TV have a variable audio output? (If it has one it will be marked on the back...or in the on-screen guide)

    DVD is a Cambridge Audio, media player a Lacie. Both have 2CH audio output and can regulate the output volume via remote. The TV has a 2CH RCA audio output but no way to regulate the output volume. In any case I can live without a volume pot if this is your thought. TX

    I'm thinking a simple T-amp http://www.amazon.com/LP-2020A-Lepai-Tripath-Class-T-Amplifier/dp/B0049P6OTI/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1359053042&sr=1-1&keywords=t-amp Dayton speakers... http://www.amazon.com/Dayton-B652-2-Inch-Bookshelf-Speaker/dp/B002RMPHMU/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1359053148&sr=1-2&keywords=dayton+subwoofer composite switch (this may be "too cheap"...but hey) http://www.amazon.com/Composite-Audio-Video-Selector-Switch/dp/B004ZH62PQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1359053221&sr=1-2&keywords=composite+switch The tough part is the subwoofer. One with high level input/output is preferred...but I got nothing "new" that fits the remainder. Look on CL and find a used $50 sub(may take a while). Or you might decide those Dayton have enough bass...and if so...return them for a better pair...or return the amp for more power.
