Set Up Advice Needed

I have a Pioneer VSX-9700S that was given to me with a pair of large Kenwood speakers. The speakers sound great but are too large for my bed room. I would like to use the receiver for a small set up for listening to music in a small to medium sized bed room. I would like to know what speakers to get, I would like to add a sub later on. My budget >$350

Thanks

Small Warfdales are very good for the price.

Bookshelves require stands, which occupies space just like a floorstander. Unless your putting on a table or shelf.

I suggest the Pioneer FS-51 or FS-52 speakers. They are very good and the price is attractive. Check Amazon.

If you have some shelves or cabinets to put them on, the Cambridge SX-50 might be a good choice.

Good subwoofers START at around $500. Cheaper ones are largely a waste of money as they mostly have odd resonances and a bloated ugly sound.

Please stop making such unfounded statements. You don't know what you are talking about.

My statement is FOUNDED on WHAT I HEAR. I know exactly what I hear, and other people make similar comments on this website.

If you hear something different, say so.

I've heard subwoofers under $500 that sound good with no bloated characters what so ever. Contrary to what you said, they are not waste of money at all. I just proved you wrong about under $500 subwoofers.

When your OPINION becomes PROOF of something, we will all seek you out for the absolute truth.

Until then, we will simply find your comments mildly amusing and nothing more.

Just because you heard a few subs under $500 that didn't sound good, does not make it a universal fact. Your logic is so twisted that your posts don't even make any sense.

I have to agree that $500 is the starting point for good bass. This puts you in the market for subs from SVS, HSU, Outlaw and Rythmik. There are a few decent options below that point, but they are mainly smaller subs good for smaller spaces. The Outlaw M8 and HSU STF-2 are good options for a bedroom or small space, but I would try and save for something nicer.
