Looking for good speakers around the 80 USD range. my altec lansings pooped out on me and i need new ones.

THose aren't too bad, I must admit... but, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836116137
are good too... but those altec's are pretty nice.. I have to admit. Good wattages from both of them, but, frankly, I say go with the altec's. Of course, if you could just spend a little more, possibly save up...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121121
would easily over take those altec's... but for the money and the 5.1, yeah, altec's are fine.

I'm going to go with what Dishdog's pointing out. But I have a link for an even cheaper price for that exact same speaker set:

Logitech X-530 70 Watts 5.1 Speaker - Retail

With shipping fees added on to Newegg's order, it still comes out cheaper than if you were to have it delivered through Tigerdirect though. Tigerdirect America will charge you $32.50 for freakin delivery!!!! As compared to Neweggs's measly $9.24, wow..

Same. Logitech has just always performed well for me (I'm getting these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121120
) so yeah... I could've gotten the altec pro's but these just sounded a lot better to me... and I have quite a musical ear so yeah.
