Here is what I've come up with:

Speakers - Overnight Sensations
Amp - Lepai LP-2020A+
Subwoofer - Dayton Audio Sub-800 (or sub 1000)
+bluetooth adapter

Total = About 300 with materials

Is there something else better for around 300?

Maybe active speakers?
Maybe speakers that go deeper with no sub?

I think I would worry about the effects of high humidity on everything.

Yeah maybe outdoor speakers would be a little more resistant.

I never see it that humid in the bathroom. It's not like dripping wet or anything.

The speakers shouldnt be effected by water condensation, no electronic parts really. The amp can go inside a cabinet... Only the sub is a ???

Where would you put the sub? My beef with my whole house audio is lack of sub bass in all the rooms. I suppose in my bathroom I could stash a powered sub inside the whirlpool cabinet which has a gfci outlet but that's not really practical. I haven't heard anything good about inwall/ceiling passive subs.

Is the shower used?

I don't think MDF does well where it is humid enough to fog up a mirror. Cheaper speakers will also have cheaper connectors/parts that are probably more susceptible to corrosion. Just my guess.

What about the T-amp?

Amp can go inside of a cabinet and the speakers are birch.

Really the only q is the sub. I could care less if a $100 sub breaks in 5 years... If it will break in 1-2 years then I'd be a little concerned.
I guess I could tape something over the amp area and if the sub is sealed then the MDF should be OK

If I am wrong then feel free to correct me.... just sharing my thoughts.

I agree on the sub as disposable if it fails. I'd be fine with the $70 monoprice powered sub in my bathroom hidden in the whirlpool cabinet but I'd have to run about a hundred foot sub cable back to the headend. Here in MN during a 30 below zero day, it can get awful steamy in the bathroom even with the 12 foot ceilings.
