I've been doing a bit of research to replace a pair of $500/pair front speakers from TheSpeakerCompany , which happen to be the TST2's, and I've narrowed it down to a few different options. However, I'm wondering how my research/conclusions compare to others. So, as the title states, what would you consider the best front speaker setup for approximately $1500? If it makes any difference, the speakers will be paired with a Rhythmik Audio FV-15 15in subwoofer.

Help me Pay It Forward

Media Room
Fronts and Center - Ascend Sierra-2
Surrounds - Ascend Sierra-1's
Rythmik FV-15
Onkyo TX-NR808
Panasonic 50" GT30

TST2 towers, TC2 Center, Onkyo TX-SR601, PS3

There is a deal I will recommend to you, but it is TODAY ONLY and ONLINE ONLY!

KEF DIRECT has the iQ90 speakers, which list at $1500 per pair, for $660 per pair.

They would be a good deal if you could get them for $1000-1200, and for $660 they are a steal.

These are very fine speakers! I had the iQ9 speakers in one system at my old house for several years, and they were excellent. The iQ90 is essentially the same, with minor upgrades.

The BEST speakers I know of in that price range are the PSB Image T6 speakers, which sell for $1300 per pair. The iQ90 speakers come very very close to equaling them though, and nobody is making any deals on the Image T6 that I know of.
