What's wrong with Bose speakers? I have some friends who have them and they sound fantastic. There has to be something wrong with them. Posted Image

They're way overpriced for the quality you get.

Way, way, way, way, way, way, way overpriced for what you get. They are pretty much no better than $50 Altec Lansing computer speakers. Cheap parts and inferior sound at gaggingly high prices. Dan

Thanks guys. So, what kind of speakers do you recommend for around 1200-1300 bux for the whole package? [5 satellites and a sub](I really like the acoustimass-15 system) brett (btw- I'm rooting for the avalanche even though I'm a Wings fan... let's drop the Devils)

Look at the Definitive Technology speaker packages. Paradigm also has a lot of different lines of speakers in their Monitor Series that you could match together for that kind of money. Also look at Acoustic Energy's AEGIS line. Another is PSB's Image Series. You don't necessarily have to go with little speakers in the front (and maybe even in the rear) at that price range with these companies. All of these will give you much better sound for the money. Maybe augement the main 5 (or 6 or 7 depending on if you want a 6.1 or 7.1 surround decoder) speakers with an SVS subwoofer since they are a great bang vs. buck product. Dan

Energy is one to look at. Try the Encore setup. Paradigm will get you great quality for a good price. Try a Titan mains, CC170 center, atoms rears, and a PDR 10 sub. Bet you'll love the sound. ------------------ Oops...I dropped my eardrums could you pick them up for me

Definitive Tech...makes some nice speakers in that price range,

Energy's take 5.2 series is decent..

Also look into Phase Technologies....I run the 6.5 and 7.5 speakers for my 5 channels (dual SVS for the Sub) I got them for a grand for the 5. Absolutely sick for the price Posted Image

I really like my Mirage setup. The price is not too shabby. -Andre F ------------------ -= Take your stinking paws off me you damn dirty ape! =-
