Well, Sony makes a lot of really poor cheap speakers, and they also make a pair of speakers that sell for $13,000.
Unfortunately, they don't make much in between.
For a dorm room, your best bet in my opinion is to get a set of good bookshelf / monitor speakers that will have decent bass and nice overall sound quality.
My first choice would be the Boston Acoustics Classic CS26 speakers, which go down to 52 Hz, and are $150 each right now at Amazon and other dealers.
The Polk Monitor 40 speakers are another possibility. They are a lot cheaper, and have good bass, but are not as good-sounding overall.
