Lol, I would recommend the JBL Everest DD66000s if you could afford them! But seriously, I am interested in the two way JBL Studio series, specifically the 530, 570, 580, and 590. I haven't heard them but would very much like to. But those those four way ES80 with "ultra tweeters" smacks of marketing. They should have put the money spent on that useless extra tweeter into better cabinet bracing. Anyway, it doesn't look like the two way studio series is in your budget range. If you want good affordable tower speakers I would be taking a close look at the Infinity Primus p363, those you can afford. However on your budget, I think your money would go further with bookshelf speakers. You won't need the deeper bass extension of tower speakers if you get a halfway decent subwoofer. Let the sub deal with bass.
