    Future Shop has a pair of Tower speakers, the Quest Q660's for $99. As I don't have much money (I'm only 16), but would like to add a couple more speakers for music, are these a good buy?

    For $99 (Reg.$199) they aint too bad for music. Little low on the sound spectrum for my ears, but some customers like them. Listen to them and see if there worth your $99.

    Thanks for the input.

    [​IMG] I just checked the futureshop website... there's a sale on these for $39.97. Sale ends one the 27th. I think I may just get my hands on these.

    $40??? That's crazy!!! But they're all gone now [​IMG] When did the sale start, was it online only?

    I think they were clearing them out because of the Quest QT66 which are priced at $250 (but usually go on sale for less). The QT66 replaces the Q660, I think--well it makes sense at least...

    Mark,

    have a look at what Harman Kardon is clearing out in their JBL line ... ( http://www.harmanaudio.com ) ... you will be pretty impressed with the pricing of the refurb studio line speakers. [​IMG]

    a little more money, but well worth the investment

    Jeff, those are some pretty nice speakers on the site. Two problems:

    1) They're in $US, meaning even more pricey for me.

    2) I can't rellay afford all that much, and my father wont buy them unnescesarily. We basically just wanted them to compliment our current setup. I'm thinking about splitting the cost of the new Quest ones that are up with him though...

    Thanks for the link, though.

    Oh, one more question. The new ones listed are 150W each. My reciever only puts out 100W/channel. Would clipping occur with this much of a difference? I'm not too clear on what it is (yes, I know, I need to read the primer), and I don't want to have to buy an amp for them.

    Ugh, I just checked the Futureshop site again. The price of the OT660's has gona back up to $99, and they're in stock. Think I might get a pair at the price.

    *EDIT* nevermind... he was just sitting next to a dropship as it was landing... and then he died... my bad.
