I am looking for a 2.1 sound system that's best bang for the buck. up to 100 bucks. I mostly would use them for music & movies. I was trying to do some research but the best I think find was the Logitech Speaker System Z623.
Would be nice to have good treble & clean bass response. any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Sorry for the slow response, I guess everyone is traveling or preparing for thanksgiving. What's is your budget range? For 2.1 I like Klipsch - ProMedia 2.1. Second place would be Logitech Z623 200 w 2.1 or Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-power 2.1. Need something cheaper??, maybe Cyber Acoustics CA3550RB 68 watts 2.1 or Logitech Z313 25 w 2.1 Speaker System ect.. Good Luck!

With a budget of $100, you're looking at quite a few options. The question is how we define "best," and this can be a long definition. Are you looking for the loudest, the most bass output, the best balanced, the most accurate?

From personal experience, Logitech and Creative Labs tends to fit very well with their mid-range speakers in the "sounds decent and doesn't quite make my ears bleed" field with the most recent offerings.

Klipsch can be very accurate, but they range quite a bit model to model.

Cyber Acoustics is all re-branded, so there is no easy comparison. They do actually have some speakers that do sound quite nice, and they have quite a few that are simply garbage.

My pick, however, is from HiVi, the Swan M10. I stumbled across these at an electronics blowout for $130 and initially thought they were a small home theater set, and didn't realize what had been purchased until we opened the box for the build. The speakers are open faced with polymer mids and soft-fiber tweeters that are very clear and accurate, with a nice bright full sound. The sub is also polymer in a fully ported enclosure, and may not be the deepest tone out there (it's more of a woofer rather than a sub-woofer) but fits very well in balance with the other speakers. The boxes are all wood (great for vibration isolation and keeping the tone warm), and all of the speaker elements are removable as is the case with pro studio speakers, meaning a blown unit can be easily replaced (though the amp at 10Wx2 and 30Wx1 RMS, 50W RMS total is unlikely to blow a speaker).

You can find this set on-line now for under $100, and the set is absolutely worth it.

I've never used them before. I'd just check reviews.
