Hey all,

Currently, I have a couple of KSB 1's as my fronts, a loose Energy take center channel (purchased from ebay away from its set), a couple of polk RM7s for my rears, and an energy s10.3 sub...all ran through a pioneer vsx 1021k

My question is two fold: I was thinking about upgrading my fronts to some PIONEER SP-BS41-LR...based on the review I read at thewirecutter.com...however, i was wondering how much of an upgrade they would be. I'm looking for something with a bit more low-end.

If that's not worth upgrading, would it be worth jumping on the energy take 5 speaker package that's $150 right now in order to round out a complete energy set-up?

I'm looking to stay around 100-200 right now, so maybe I should hold off and upgrade to some more substantial fronts in the future? The only problem there is that I have zero room to put anything larger than a bookshelf sized speaker (fireplace on one half of the wall, built in shelves + 65"st50 on the other).

Any guidance would be appreciated.

HTD Level 2 bookshelf speakers $200 a pair would be a nice upgrade. However, I don't understand your "low end"? You mean as in bass wise? If that's the case you will need a sub. bookshelf speakers usually do not have much bass.

Thanks, I'll take a look. Yeah, I meant bass, but even more specifically, it just seems like my fronts are a bit too treble-y.

I do have a sub, the energy s10.3, which is probably the piece I'm most pleased with in my set-up.

The Level Two will be more smooth.

Agree. They are smooth, detailed and cleared. A friend of mine bought a 5.1 set up of the level 3, and they are awesome. My monitor 70's with RW-12D sub sound awesome, but HTD sounds with more clarity and detail. Once I buy a new house I am definitely replacing my current set up with HTDs.
