I would like to spend between $100-$200 a speaker starting with probably the center channel and then a bit more on the sub when I get to that one. I am by no means a master woodworker, but I have built my share of projects including furniture before. My biggest concern is audio quality, I am not looking for something to blow the doors off my house...yet. So, any recommendations?
For most Cinema style speakers you will be looking at a little more than $100-200 a speaker. However, if you want to get started, you should check out the fusion line from DIY Sound Group
. They are great speakers for the price and The Fusion 6
and if you can squeeze a little more in the budget, the Fusion 8 towers
would be right around your price range.
However, if you really want something that will give you nice midbass, you may want to save a little more and try for the Fusion 15's
. They are highly regarded on here, especially for the price. And with an acoustically transparent screen, you have the perfect setup for them. However, they definitely stretch your budget. But you can always start with 1 and build more as you have money. Start with 1 as your center, when you get another, make them your fronts and then finally build one more for your center. Just an idea. I completely understand staying within your budget as well.
