Sometime in the next few months I will graduate college and move to a tiny apartment in New York City. If all goes according to plan, I will have a fellowship that would save my parents many thousands of dollars in education expenses, a savings I hope to parlay into about $2000-$2500 to spend on a home theater system for my tiny apartment space. I've spent a lot of time obsessing over what I might want. Based on the hundreds of reviews I've read, I think I've decided on the following system: Fronts: Axiom M2i's = $252 Center: A third Axiom M2i = $126 Surrounds: Axiom QS4s = $360 Sub: Dayton 10"/100W = ~$150 after shipping Receiver: Pioneer 1014 = ~$400 after shipping TV: Samsung TXP2675WH 27" HDTV widescreen CRT w/ HDTV tuner = ~$630 Total: About $2000 after mounting brackets, wire, etc. I want YOU to tear apart this system, tell me where I'm making a terrible mistake, and why. Here are some preliminary responses to some of what I think will be the most likely suggestions: 1) "That's not loud enough - try the M22s" - I will be a teacher in NYC for the foreseeable future. I will likely spend a long time living in an apartment that has less floor area than many entertainment rooms. I think the M2is will be plenty loud enough. 2) "Why not a VP100 for the center?" - it's $100 more. It's a bit louder than the M2i, a bit more focused on the midrange, and magnetically shielded. The first doesn't matter to me, because I hardly ever listen to anything loud anyway. The second is an argument that might make me spend an extra $50, but not an extra $100, since the M2is apparently have fantastic midrange anyway, and the third is not that important to me - I've read some reviews of M2is as center, and it seems that I'll be able to get it far enough from the TV so as not to cause major interference. 3) "You'd be much better off with a better sub" - I agree. I originally specced an SVS-PB10 in there. Then I read some reviews of the Dayton and realized that a) I don't watch many action movies or listen to much R&B and b) I'll be in a tiny tiny apaprtment. I'm currently using a Klipsch Promedia 4.1 system in a room that's likely bigger than where I'll be living next year, and the subwoofer generally keeps me pretty happy - and that's with a frequency response down to only 35 Hz, so the Dayton is already a big step up. And $300 is a LOT of savings. If there's a sub out there that's significantly better than the Dayton and still less than $300 or so, let me know, and I'll consider it. Of course, the M2is have pretty crappy bass, so I'll be working with a crossover of 80-100, so if the Dayton sucks at those frequencies for some reason, I'd like to know. Of course, I'll try to make sure to give a similar system a listen before I order it, though the 30-day Axiom guarantee thing is a nice deal. Maybe somebody in the NYC area has a similar setup - it's NYC, after all - and I can try it out in a real audition.
