I am looking for a decent 5.1 system under $400 (for speakers only). I have narrowed down to the following 2 options:

Klipsch Quintet II ($199) + Velodyne VX-10 ($169)
Harman Kardon Hkts 18 ($329)

Can someone please help me to chose between the two?
I will be connecting this to a Onkyo SR 605 receiver which I already have.

Room Size: 15x13

Thanks

HK for style, Klipsch+Velo for performance

Thanks for the input. I was also leaning towards Klipsch+Velo.

The HKTS systems are made by JBL, which knows a thing or two about speaker performance.

Both are good choices for budget systems. Personally I'd go with the Klipsch/VX-10 package. I haven't heard that specific sub in the HK package but imo the VX-10 is the best choice < $200 and I've been less than impressed with other JBL subs I've demoed.
