Need something for the bedroom. Doesn't have to be fancy, doesn't have to be pricy. Speakers will all be on top of an armoire, so they need to be smaller in size. anyone have any suggestions?

i'm not even opposed to something like this: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1202650703861

If $150 is your budget it is going to be tough to get anything worthy of a recommendation.

For example there any number of quality small speakers here from NHT, Infinity and Polk that I would choose before Insignia

I have these Cambridge Soundworks speakers hooked up to my laptop but, reading the comments, it looks like people use them for TVs too. I love mine, bought circa 1994(?).

$150 isn't necessarily my budget. i just posted that link b/c they are small speakers, which is what i'm looking for.

This is what I have in my bedroom. Decent enough and very inexpensive @ $169:

Not up to full range speakers I have in the home theater but good enough for my purposes. They also come with speaker mounts.

Actually the sub looks different, I have the 10" Dayton tiny mighty bought separately. Cant find it on the website, the 10" in that package seems to have replaced it, BTW the sub is $130 by itself.
