It seems many of the suggestions being brought to your attention you are then trying to justify your way out of buying it, and by that logic you mine as well go spend 200 bucks on some HTIB. If its never going to be pushed and you don't really care all that much then why spend anything more than that?
I Really wasn't trying to be a complete dick. Just having a serious WTF moment as to why you even made this thread if your just coming up with some analogy as an explanation to your reasoning behind NOT wanting to buy something of higher quality.
I'm asking "why" because I"m uninformed to a big degree. I've read a lot of posts and I'm guessing if I spent a few grand I'd blow my doors off but I can't/dont want to afford that. So I'm trying to understand why a "good bang for my buck" is just that.
On the HTIB I know I wouldn't be happy w/ it and neither would the wife. That was why I did give us some head room.
I can understand the WTF moment, had them myself and my bad if I came off like a turd. I took the post the wrong way and I'm just so green w/ audio I want to make sure I'm making a solid purchase. I deal w/ douchebags all day at work so sometimes I get my panties in a wad w/ little prompting. Sorry.
On speakers I'm down to either the PA system or the large BIC system for speakers. I think for the $$ they should do fine and not break the bank.
On the sub, there are many ideas that had gotten thrown around and I went from almost 400 for a complete sub to a DIY spending twice that. The more I understand and comprehend the data at hand the better I feel about the final outcome. I'm a questioning mf'er, not for the sake of, "you're retarded why did you suggest that", it is "I AM retarded, why did you suggest that". Like I said, i'm fine saying I don't know diddley d$ck about speakers.
I did have the idea of wanting something nice and viable but I didn't know where to start. I had read some liked the polks and I shopped the idea but it seems the PA or BIC would be a better buy. So for that I'm glad to have gotten the input.
On some of the suggestions they really put me out of my price and comfort range. The amp you suggested, if used w/ two of the 15" or 18" speaker kits would probably be killer, in the right hands. But it sounds chicken sh$t but I just don't want to fiddle w/ another item and have to by a rack get it setup, etc, etc... But I'm not dead set against it, I'm just as confusing to myself as I am to everyone else
. Jay keep suggesting two subs for my room and he preferred the BIC due to their efficiency. I can only get one sub for now so I have to be content w/ that, and think about a second next summer.
FWIW, I have been very appreciative of all the input. Again, I ask tons of questions not to doubt sincerity w/ the suggestions but because I' don't understand. Please forgive my audio ignorance.
