I am looking for some speakers for a friend of mine. He thinks he blew his old Sony "APM" speakers from the 80's (the ones with the square woofers). It might be another problem but I am just researching stuff for him. I'd roll him a DIY design but I won't have very good access to a wood shop anytime soon. He listens to a wide variety of source material, including punk rock and ska, but he also has a fairly discerning ear and he listens to other stuff on occasion. He is also big into DVD movies and also owns the Sony SA-WM40 sub that was so popular on here for a long time. He has a decent job and has about $250 to spend on speakers. The Best Buy store near my house carries Klipsch speakers, and I think that I will recommend for him the Klipsch Synergy SF-1 floorstandign speaker with MicroTractrix tweeter and 6.5" woofer.
