What do you mean I am pretty decided on this setup? Of course I am decided on installing some speakers/amp/etc. What I am currently after is what brand/model of speaker I should get which is why im asking for alternatives specifically 3 to 4 options which I can audition so that I can choose among them. Sad to say, I dont have the luxury to audition all of them since they are far away, i have a ton of things to do and i have a small window to get this done before the carpenter finishes fixing our roof project and my better half suddenly decides to forgo my home theater project. Oh by the way, not to be disrespectful or anything but the last post was directed to JohnRice. It would greatly help me if we could narrow things down to 3x speaker choices for my budget so I can audition the 3, choose 1 then finish the project.
