I'm just getting into constructing a HT. No receiver yet but I do own 3 pairs of speakers and I would like to utilize them to help keep the cost down on my setup. OK, here's what I have. Opinions welcome. What I consider the best sounding set is a pair of small Phase Tech speakers I bought around 1985 or 86. I've compared them to the other speakers below and they sound the best too my non audiophile ears. The only problem I have is that when I play music loud through them the Bass causes the subwoofer to hit the speaker case. This doesn't happen often since I'm old now and don't play my Ramones on full volume as much anymore. The second set is a pair of Cambridge Sound Works Ensemble II speakers that I bought with the idea of replacing the Phase Techs. Sounds pretty good but like I said not as good as the PT's. Also seemed quieter for the same volume level when I had both hooked up to my old NAD receiver. Next is a pair of Bose something or others that were my dad's. Two small (5'x5') units that can mount to the wall and a seperate subwoofer. I have no center speaker except the one on the TV. (Philips 55PP9701). Any opinions on how you would work this group of speakers into a home theater without getting me divorced. hehe.
