I purchased this setup : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882120160
The way I understand it the receiver puts out 130w@6ohms, so I don't know how that translates into an 8ohm speaker.
I have scrapped the front sound stage for:
L/R : Polk Monitor40 (20-125w / 47Hz-25kHz / 8ohm / 89db) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290202
Center: Polk Monitor CS2 (20-175w / 50Hz-25kHz / 8ohm / 90db)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290212
I am happy with that upgrade so far (although I am still figuring out how to use the full range on the center AND the sub, the amp won't seem to allow it).
I am considering these for my surround L/R: Polk Monitor30 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290200
(20-100w / 55Hz-25kHz / 8ohm / 90db)
And these for my subs : Klipsch Sub-12HG, BIC America F12 or Premier Acoustic PA-120.
I am primarily concerned with consistency in sound of my component speakers, so I will likely purchase the Monitor30's. They are going to be wall mounted, but I am concerned with their size and potential overkill considering the job of a surround speaker. I don't really care about my surround rears, and will either not use them or just leave the cheap Onkyo's that came with the HTIB.
I REALLY need help with the sub choice. I watch Blu-Rays and listen to music. I would like to spend $200 (BIC), but am willing to go up to $300 (PA or Klipsch) if it offers more flexibility between movies/music and higher quality.
Are the Monitor30's overkill? I don't see a smaller wall mount option in that generation of Polk.
Which sub is the best budget sub to fit music/movies?
