Okay, I'm looking for some mains under $600 hundred a pair with at least 90 db sensitivity. A powerful, dynamic speaker that can rock. I like for guitars to be loud and thick with a little bit of a bite My listening room is 17 by 14 and the speakers will be driven with a H/K 310. Low end is taken care of with a SVS 25-31. Here are the speakers I've auditioned so far and what I didn't like about them. KEF q series - too laid back Boston Acoustics vr series - too laid back Klipsch reference - don't like the horns too aggressive and harsh JBL Studio Series - too much emphasis on upper midrange and a little shrill when turned up loud Infinity Interludes - require too much power Polk RTI's - too muddy Briefly auditioned PSB Image but didn't have any cd's with me and all the dealer had was the soundtrack to Titanic, so I don't know how they would sound for rock, but they seemed a little bright. Haven't tried B&W or Paradigm. I had no idea how hard it would be to find replacements for my big old cheap 3 way Pioneers. They have the tonal characteristics I'm looking for, but suck in the imaging and soundstage department. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
