    Well, i started looking at JBLs, and found the great deal J&R is runnning. Right now they are all on sale, and its free shipping. So i may end up ordering tommorrow. Because, im not to sure when this sale will end.

    Center channel JBL EC35 159

    Two Fronts JBL e100's 539/pair

    Sub JBL S120PII 349

    Rears ( Still questionable) e50's 249/pair

    Total cost 1300

    Think i could do any better with that money, or get a better speaker(s)

    Yes you could do much better holding off and spending that money on good speakers first and saving for a good sub. Your going to have to spend a bit more for a good sub and you would be better off without one until you can get a good one. Take some advice from a guy that upgraded about 5 times over the last 10 years and wished I would haved pieced it together over time, I would have saved a fortune.

    Take a look here and also give them a call.. Lots of times they have certain packages they are willing to let go cheaper this time of year than whats posted as well..

    Although I don't like most JBL subs, that "S" series sub is a decent sub. That is a great price as that is a $600 subwoofer. Well worth $300. That is a decent price for the JBL's as well. Regardless of the fact the JBL's are sold at BB, for the prices at JandR, this would be a nice set-up...

    Go with E-80's in the front and E-30's in the rear. That would free up some cash for a better sub....

    Does SVS produce a better line in their cylinder or box subs?

    So if i were to go with the SVS PB12-ISD would i see a huge difference in quality? This is about a 325 dollar jump from the JBL with shipping.

    Or the HSU STF-3, which i see for 650 shipped.

    Btw, my room is 15x18x9h

    Any other brands that produce a better sub from around 600?

    The JBL mains are fantastic speakers. I've listened to the JBL sub (in store) and wasn't that impressed.

    I love my JBL main and SVS (PB12 Plus) setup. It is a great and affordable combo for music and movies.

    I went to BB today, saw the smaller versions the e80 and e60, I started playing around with their demo and wasnt terribly impressed. I was tempted to take a pair home and try out, but they look so cheaply put together... and they were at BB..[​IMG]

    Luckily that sale is still going on at JR, i think im going to do a little more shopping around.

    I suggest you look at and demo Paradigm speakers. IMO, they have some of the best speakers for the money. Look at the Performance line first. They are not available on-line, so you will have to find a local dealer. I think they are worth a look, though.
