Two suggestions (both from internet stores):
I don't have a problem with Polk or Energy but I think the budget suggestions below would provide better sound.
Ascend Acoustics setup (internet only, no middle-man CA based company-all products made in USA with parts occasionally sourced from other countries)
2xCBM-170SE Front R/L
2xHTM-200SE Rear R/L
$668+$68shipping=$738 (Just above your budget but worth it I think)
You could opt for 2xCBM-170SEs for rears that would increase total to $764.www.ascendacoustics.com
30-day satisfaction guarantee which is great since you can't listen to them in a store.
Infinity setup from Harman Audio
2xPrimus 163s Front R/L $278
1xPrimus 251 CC $200 or 351 for $275
2xPrimus 143s Rear R/L $200
Total $678 or $753 + shipping.
I would recommend the 3-way 351 CC over the 251www.harmanaudio.com
