    I am in the market for a pair of bookshelves to run for a stereo set-up. I have a KSW12 Klipsch sub. I'd like at least a 6.5in woofer. Looking to spend around 150-200 per speaker. I have been pondering at the Paradigm Titans, atoms, and the JBL S38. Anyone else have any suggestions for me to look at. I will be buying online and will be running an 1802. Thanks...

    JBL N24s, S series, Ascend Acoustics, Home Theater Direct, + the others you mentioned are all good starting points. Ascend & HTD are both internet direct sales companies...

    Paradigm does not allow their dealers to sell online.

    One was mentioned on this forum who did, but the prices were REDICULOUSLY high, so not really of benefit to anyone.

    Lots of good options in this price range including the Paradigm and JBL models you mention. IMO, the Infinity IL 10s and Mission M72 are also worth checking out.

    The S38's are great, as are the IL10's. If you look at the IL10's, also check out the Entra One. They are less expensive and still might do the trick for you.

    Huge fan of the Titans. In my opinion, you couldn't loose with these.
