    hi,

    i should've joined this forum before i bought my system which consists of polk R30s, R15s, PSW303 sub, and a CSi30 center.

    i am primarily a movie watcher, w/ probably only about 1-5% music. im looking for a good satellite speaker package for under $600.

    i just took home the energy encore speakers, and to be quite honest, they did not really sound as good as i thought. oddly enough, i enjoyed the bose acoustimass 10 speakers a lot, but i am not going to buy them because IMO, they lack a lot of mids.

    the receiver i have is an onkyo ht-r500 that spits out 75x5. going into a room that is 10' X 24', but the 5.1 system is going to be only occupying 1/2 that, so about 10' by 12'. any help is appreciated. thanks!

    the HSU ventriloquist system (VT-12)with the STF-1 sub. would be right up there, if not the best solution for this price..

    btw the polk rm6700 and infinity series(dont know the model no,but you can audition them at cc) are both pretty good, i liked the polk better and thats what i have at present, polks are 600$ and CC has a scheme on where you get a sub for free(you can upgrade that sub too and pay the difference) whereas the infinity setup is 700$ with the sub

    I have the Jamo A330PDD.3B. $445 online at soundpros.com and I love them. I even bought a second Jamo sub for a different system.

    ya calvin i think so, i dont know the model name but its a 5.1 setup by infinity costing 700 bucks, but i listened to both polk and infinity together and polks clearly sounded more fuller in sound, a buddy of mine also has a JBL satellite setup which also sounds pretty good to me and its much cheaper too,i think in the 300$ or so price range.
