I'm opening up a restaurant in the Memphis, TN area this winter with a couple of other investors. Being the electronics geek, the responsibility of setting up a very nice sound system to play background music has been dubbed my responsibility (among other things like setting up an inventory control database, the checkout kiosks, etc, but that's got nothing to do with HT so) Anyhow... the music is going to be kept at relatively low levels pretty much all day every day - you know, just like what you're used to hearing in any other restaurant. In-ceiling speakers aren't really an option because we've got a very high "warehouse" style ceiling if you know what I'm talking about. So we're just going to go with wall-mountable speakers. I'd like to spend under 2k bucks including the amp, cable, and speakers... so I guess I'd like to keep it under 600 bucks per pair of speakers - of course I'm aware that 600 bucks can often times buy you speakers that technically are a grand - since there are great deals that can be found online, and if that's the case of course I'm fine with a 1000 dollar pair of speakers. I think we'll need at least 2 pairs of speakers starting off. I love the way the Polk LSi9s sound, and I've found some places that sell them cheap, but then I got to thinking... speakers that sound good (and relatively full range) at low volumes aren't always the ones that sound good and high volumes. I guess you have any suggestions for a low volume amp that'll support both pairs of speakers, I'd appreciate it too. We're likely just going to be playing music off of Napster or XM radio off of a computer in the management office. That's what I do at my house, at least, and am pretty comfortable with it.
