TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK, YOU'LL NEVER BE happy with someone else's choice,
speakers are such a subjective component. Stewee will push Atlantic....somethings. GO OUT AND AUDITION ON YOUR OWN, I'm not trying to be rude, but remember neither Stew nor I will ever hear your set-up. YOU ARE THE ONE WHO HAS TO LISTEN TO IT EVERYDAY!!!
Some brands to check out include KLIPSCH, POLK, BOSTON ACOUSTIC, JBL, MIRAGE, AXIOM, OHM, and NHT. Some are mass-market others are DIRECT-BUY systems.
Lots of good advice on this forum, but speakers have to be your decision alone.
Hi Stewee, as I've written, I'm getting a new TV, but I'm also getting new speakers as my old Advent Pro monitors are too big for the area in the new house. What I need is something no wider than 10". The Room where it's going is huge, but the place where the TV and sound system is going is very limited. It's one of those built in areas that builders are putting in houses now. I don't need a reciever as I already have one. I'm looking to spend between $500 and $1000, (prefer closer to $500) for 5.1 speaker system. Satellites are OK, but so many of them don't have a full presence. The towers that I've listened to sound much better. Any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.
