I am looking for some speakers to build a 2.1 system with. I am going to be starting out with just a receiver and 2 speakers but will get a sub eventually.

I was looking at the Polk R150's which are $99 for a pair. Are they any good or can I do better for that price?

They are OK. You can get better polk deals on ebay. they have an outlet

Example:

I am sure others will chime in with better options.

Would the TSI100s or Polk Monitor 30s be better then the R150s? They are like $130

Well my brother is actually getting these and he does not want 5.1

I think I am going to go with the Monitor 30s on newegg for $90 after coupon code.
