Thanks everyone for your help!!!!!!!!!
I have 2 Cerwin Vega Re-30s sitting idle.
(12" Woofer, 4" mid and 1" tweeter)
The cheap Sony receiver I have to power these speakers is so bad I just won't listen to it.
What should I do? My budget is $300-$400... I'd rather stay closer to $300 so my wife doesn't throw bricks at me...... Oh, since I'm mainly going to use my personal music player (Cowon D2) to provide music to my new system, a tuner (receiver) is not required.
BTW, I have a home theater in a box to accompany my Samsung 52" HDTV.
I have this:
Samsung HT-AS730ST Home Theater System by Samsung
Samsung LN52B630 52-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LCD HDTV with Red Touch of Color
connected and working fine. Sound is.... well.. so-so..... (as a home theater system).. I've connected my Cowon D2 PMP and the system sounds real bad.
Sitting right along side my entertainment system, unused at this time are a set of Cerwin Vega Re-30s. These speakers ROCK! and are in excellent condition (12" Woofer, 4" Mid, and 1" Tweeter).
