Well, I've had a cheap speaker set, made by GPX, for over four years now.
Today, I turned it on to find that they finally decided to bite the dust. The output jack for the left squawker/tweeter is pretty much dead. It otherwise still works. I could fix it if I could get the headpiece (which is also the subwoofer) apart. Unfortunately, two of the eight screws in the back are stuck (probably on purpose).
I could go buy another identical set, but it seems that Family Dollar no longer carries it.
For the time being, I consider the set dead. Still, not a bad run for less than $30 ($26 plus tax). I bought it in August of 2015.
Anyone know of a good speaker set for a similar price point?
