Helping my friend get new speakers.
Some notes though, we both have the same receiver or had it. It was the HT-RC360. I would recommend the Polk Monitor 70 but I'm hesitant to. I blew my tweeters twice, and I know he likes listening at loud volumes like I do. I hardly think the amplifier in the HT-RC360 will power these speakers. In fact, I know they won't because I blew my tweeters twice haha. They currently run off a Crown XLS1500 now and are never low on power.
Wondering, are there sensitive speakers that would do well on the HT-RC360, he has a subwoofer already by the way, or is there a good amp/speaker combo that he can get where he can upgrade the speakers later but still get something decent now.
I realize that the HT-RC360 doesn't have preouts, but is there an amplifier/speaker combo he could get where the amp would take speaker level inputs?
These are the questions I wanted to know before recommending him something. I would recommend a lower power requirement speaker but we tried the Polk Monitor 50s and blew those too. I just don't have much faith now in tower speakers, with my listening habits, unless I'm using an amplifier.
