Hey all,

I'm looking for recommendations for bookshelf speakers under about $300 Canadian.

Looking for powered speakers, as I don't want to run an amp.

Also am a bass-head, so I'm looking for something that has prominent lows. I'm open to getting a setting that includes a subwoofer, under the $300 budget total.

I've listened to my friend's Kanto YU6's and sound-wise, I'd definitely be happy with them. The price is just a bit more than what I want to pay though.

Really appreciate all your recommendations or advice.

Thanks!

EDIT (Nov 29):

I found the Edifier R2000DB speakers on Black Friday sale on a lightning deal on Amazon.ca for $200 CAD (about $150 USD). I was originally going to hunt for a deal on the R1850DB's because they have a subwoofer out so I could add a sub in the future, but I thought this deal was too good to miss up. And I heard the bass response is pretty good on the R2000DB's anyways.

Thanks for all your help!

I know you are looking for a set of powered speakers but just went with a set of RB42's and sa98 amp, fucking amazing. A fellow basshead myself (nectar fam!), they pound for their size.

For crisp and clean music - not heavy bass - they work great and I'd recommend them for sure. I even use them for gaming sometimes when I'm not using a headset.
