Need some ass-kicking speakers for not ass-kicking price: Recommend Away!

I need some new speakers for my computer. I work for the residential community for a University and am a live-in parapro staff, so I always have other staff or my residents over jamming away at GHII or watching movies. With the advancing awesome of Rock Band, I've decided to get some face-melting speakers to facilitate these events. I don't want to spend over $150. Most people have said just to get the 200watt Logitech speakers but I wonder if they truly will melt faces.

What's your experience with Logitech and are there better deals out there?

    Personally, I use the FX4021 from Altec Lansing. I've gone through a few different sets of speakers over 7 or so years. This set is relatively inexpensive, but has a lot of nice features, and they sound great. It comes with a remote as well, which might be nice if you are across the room, etc.

    Honestly, I think they're great for the price. They can turn up fairly loud (I've been able to clearly hear them over people conversing at parties, pushing them to about 66% of their limit). Anyhow, when it comes to speakers, you may want to just head into a store since most places have displays. I found my speakers at Fry's.

    Not sure what I would go with. I too love the awesomeness of GHII and drool for rock band. Unfortunately my speakers for gaming ran for a bit more than 150. If you can at all afford it Klipsch is my absolute favorite brand of speakers. So you could try going with the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system which you should be able to find for less than 150 quite easily.

    As to what I personally use. Yamaha receiver, Klipsch F-2 front, Klipsch F-2 center, Klipsch F-1 rear, Klipsch Synergy Sub.

    I have the Logitech z-2300 speakers (I think those are the 200watt speakers you're referring to) and they're absolutely amazing. At 50% it's loud enough to make your ears hurt, at 75% you have to plug your ears to stop them from bursting. And the sound quality is perfect, at any volume.

    I managed to get myself a set of Logitech X-540 speakers for $109 AUSD and I am pretty happy with them and would easily reccomend them.. They do everything I want, the only problem is that I dont know the best way to set them up in my room to get the true surround sound experience.
