For my next set of speakers I've more or less decided to go DIY. The kit will cost me about $600 Canadian without wood. So that puts the final price about the same as Studio 20s. Are the AV3s much better than the Studio 20's? I will be running them without a sub for a while, I'm concerned about the 5.25" woofers ability to play low with authority, do they have respectable bass ( compared to my current Titans)? I plan on bringing them to college with me(the full 5.1 Paradigm/Tempest setup is just too big), so the small footprint is very appealing, is the overall sound well suited to a small dorm room? I mostly listen to rock and I 'm worried about the speakers ability to rock well. I have Grado SR-80 headphones which are just perfect for rock. Should I be looking at the Adire HE series speakers for a better rock speaker?
