Personally Krazy, I like the Dayton speakers that Parts Express sells. No personal experience with them, but when i was looking I was that was my choice. You may want to at least checkthem out! Let us know!

Well, thanks for the advice fellas. I went with the ones from Parts Express. I'm on their mailing list and just got the ones listed on this page for only $115 bucks for the pair including shipping. Here's the link in case anyone's interested...

I will be sure to check back once I have them hooked up to let you know how they perform...

I got the same ones and they actually sent REAL Dayton speakers in the original manufacturer's boxes and packaging! REALLY great deal, save $40 on each and get the ones from the link above

Yeah, the box they sent me was the same. I got both speakers, with shipping, for about $115...hooked them up yesterday and they sound terrific. Much better than my original set that took a crap on me late last year...

Thanks again for all the help guys, I really appreciate it...and so does my listening audience!

I am using one TFS6 and one TFS10 so they have a different look to them. They both use the same drivers so they sound the same but you are
able to get ones that do not match. I called TIC directly to verify that and they do sound great together.
