I'm looking for speakers for my home theater. It's a small room 12x12. Since I'm on a tight budget I figured I would start with a 2.1 system. I was looking at the Pioneer SP-BS21-LR speakers. They have them at walmart for $78 and I have a $50 gift card there so that would drop them to $28 for me so that's a great deal. I was also planning on getting a Dayton 1000 sub. However, as I was looking on the forums I saw someone suggest that if you were going to mainly watch movies and tv then maybe buying 2 pairs of bookshelves might be better than a 2.1.
So for my situation would it be better to buy 2 pairs of the pioneers and have front and back or buy 1 pair and a sub?
Save the gift card and get the speakers here:
Or, better yet, if you have the room, get these:
Surround is not nearly as interesting as bass, so stick with 2.1 for now.
And spend the $20 for the 1200.
Of course, it's only been 5 minutes, so you'll surely get dozens of other (contradictory) recommendations.
Dynaudio DM 2/6 - Dynaudio DM Center - Def tech pro monitor 600 - Def Tech Prosub 600 - Marantz NR1402 - Bantam Gold Power Amp - Clark Synthesis tst 239 - Dune H1 - PS3
Cheaper and no tax.
I've been dealing with them for years and have had very few problems.
I don't have any problem with Walmart, but I would use the gift card on something else.
Indeed, it is better to have a matching center.
Any particular reason your two choices are 4 vs. 2?
Around $150. I know it's really tight but just graduated and funds are not there plus I went a little over budget on the TV lol. I was just saying Pioneer bc they were cheap and seemed to have good expert reviews. I'm all ears if there's another option.
A couple of budget options that people seem to like are BIC and Fluance. Try checking them out and see if they offer something you would like in your price range.
