$500 for left right and center isn't enough to get you an upgrade over the P363's

Maybe $500 on a subwoofer would be a better upgrade. What subwoofer do you currently have?

I agree with Rob...nothing less than 1000 for the L-R-C for a noticable upgrade. Even though the Infinity Primus series has been pretty cheap lately, they are about a 300/speaker list price normally!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

Perhaps the JBL ES80 3-way tower for $130 each.

Or for a little more, the JBL ES90 4-way tower for $250 each.

You seem to be riding on a merry-go-round.

Also, are you still thinking about buying around black Friday?

You were looking at the SVS PB-2000 > so a nice set of bookshelf speakers,
with a decent center channel will work for you.

Im placing an order for svs pb2000.

Edit: ok guys im having a little setbacks svscompany quoted a shipping charge to me for $449 dollars to be shipped and guam( pacific area; north of australia) So tht would be a total of $1,200 for just a subs itskinda over for my my budget. For some reason amazon cant ship the pb2000 to guam anyone would happen to know why?

The jbl looks good aesthetically compared to p363 IMO and affordable $130 each. Are they far superior than 363 or just superior. I saw the polk tower with pretty cheap center. Anyways whats a good center you recommend for this?

Edit: whoa i was watching some jbles80 on youtube one comment saying they were made out of CARDBOARD dang is this true? I also see they are made in china. What brand of towers are not made in china? Im trying to stay away from those china manufactured items. Heres the link

Im really excited to get me home theater thats why i kinda in a hurry a bit. I know hasty can sometimes result to bad purchase but not with proper advice from you guys. Yes im planning for that svs as long as i settle my shipment fees. Anyways How can i make amazon make my pb2000 able to be shipped on guam? I was thinking $449 quote from svssite is kinda pricey. What u guys think about this?

Im planning the tower coz ill be listening to stereo music also.

Even most $5-8K speakers are made in China.

Or the parts were made in China and assembled elsewhere.

No, the JBL and most of these speakers are made of MDF, which will vary in thickness, weight, quality, etc.

The JBL ES80 is just like the Infinity P363, except with a little better aesthetic. The SQ will be about the same. Keep in mind that the JBL and Infinity are both owned by Harman, so they are probably made in the same factory.

Some of us have been around for a while - do you really believe that we would recommened
cardboard speakers?

This is the center channel - the ES25C
http://www.amazon.com/JBL-ES25CBK-Ce...ords=JBL+ES25C

A good company will have someone in China - to over-see quality control.

I have heard the JBLs, Infinitys, Polks. As was mentioned, you don't have the budget for a significant upgrade over the Infinitys. The only thing you can do with that budget for an improvement is go DIY. Given the misunderstandings that have occurred already, I would not advise that route.
