So my friends and I are getting a house next year and we've basically decided we need a sound system for it. The catch is that we need something that can do multiple purposes. We need a setup (amp and speakers) that'll sound good for watching movies, but we also need a setup that will get really really loud and thump really really hard. for parties. Basically we need a rugged home theater setup. (carpeted box speakers with corner pieces and stuff) I haven't decided yet whether we're looking at 2 speakers or 4, but I'm leaning in the 4 speakers and an amp direction (since you can't really call it a home theater with 2 speakers) Anyway we're looking at about a budget of $1000. I found some KLH party speakers (Rave II series) that look like they'll serve the party end, but I'm not sure they'll sound too good for a home theater setup. Another option was to wait for some JBL or Yamaha speakers to break out at a nice price on ebay. Those are obviously a better brand, but we'd pay the price too. I'd really like to get a lot of frequency response out of the main speakers too, because If I don't have to I'd like to not get a sub. I've also heard to look MTX Pro audio (I'm really looking at a Pro audio application here aren't I?) but it's kind of hard to find prices on MTX Pro stuff. I realize these priorities are a little different than a normal setup here, so I'm hoping someone can give me some solid input.
