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.co...&keywords=t-amp Dayton speakers... http://www.amazon.co...ayton subwoofer composite switch (this may be "too cheap"...but hey) http://www.amazon.co...omposite 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.
