    The upgrade bug is nibbling and I've got $700-ish to spend. Here's what I'm currently working with and a couple of ideas I'm throwing around:

    Outlaw 1050

    Acurus A125x5

    Outlaw ICBM (Won it, and don't even use it)

    NHT Mahogany 1.5's and AC-1 in front

    Energy Take 2's at the rear (long over due for change)

    HSU VTF-2 (not ready for an SVS so this will stay)

    I've discovered I really like Monitor Audio's Silver line so I've been eyeing the Gold Reference line (granted, I haven't heard them in person yet but the reviews are glowing).

    Idea #1: Sell the Acurus for $550 ish since I really don't need the extra oomph over what I had with the 1050 alone.

    Sell the ICBM for $225-ish since I don't need it right now.

    Sell the 1.5's for $300ish and the AC-1 for $200ish.

    That would give me about $1975 to play with. I've seen the Mon. Aud. GR 10's new on eBay for $1200, and that leaves me about $800 to put towards the matching center.

    Idea #2: Sell the Outlaw 1050 and ICBM and get the Outlaw 950 when it's released.

    I really do like my NHT's but I'm ready for a change. What do you think?

    I have the MA Silver 5's and 10 Center. For more bass, I would recommend looking at the new 8's, or 9's if you want bigger drivers in the Silver Series.
