    Looking for a new sub

    I currently have a 12" Klipsch sub that points towards the floor. I have noticed that it doesn't have the same punch that it used to and it vibrates quite a bit. My budget is around $1,500 - 2,000 for a new sub. I had an email sent to me the other day recommending a sub. Here is the link...

    Keep my pioneer 1023 or sell

    I recently just purchased a pioneer 1023. It is still new in the box. My past receiver was a pioneer 1017. It worked well for me and never had a problem. Now my question is should I sell the 1023 or just keep it and wait to upgrade to something better?

    I am thinking about getting axiom m80 speakers and I know that they require a 4 ohm load and my current receiver isn't capable of that load.

    Paradigm monitor 11's

    I'm looking to upgrade my reciever, I have a Pioneer 1017 right now. So it's about 4 years old.
