Ok, so Im planing on getting new speakers by mid/end of summer. I would like to get a speaker kit and have been looking at the dayton kits on parts express. The limited user reviews have been positive so thats good. But what kit to get? Budget is $400. Doesnt have to be dayton but does need to have everything ready to go. I cant build my own cabinets and I cant solder worth a darn.
Some info -
No sub will be used. Just dont have the home for that right now
Amp is HK3490
Music played - 70's rock, 80/90 metal, 90's grunge, 00's rock/metal
These will also be used for movies and I hate speakers that blow out deep male voices. I need voices to sound natural.
Right now Im using a pair of Cerwin Vega LS-8. I like the sound for the most part but it's time for an upgrade
I got one of the rs722 kits a few months ago when they ran it for $250 to use as a center and I am constantly amazed by it. I kick myself for not getting 3 or 4 more of them. It's a great sounding speaker that looks great too. Keep in mind though that the $350 price tag they have on it is just for one speaker.
Yeah, like overdrive said most of those kits are priced as 1 ea. The rs621 is a small woofer sealed box, so I dont think it will do well without a sub. You're kind of in a tough price range requiring an assembled cabinet, a lot of the big DIY value comes from a 4' x 8' sheet of wood only costing $35. This ZA5.3 kit is probably your best bet...
