After years of living in houses, I recently moved into my first apartment on the top floor of a 3rd floor building. I need to get new speakers and was looking at some 5.1 speakers but came across a thread that talked about possibly bothering downstairs neighbors with the subwoofer. Now I don't play my stuff too loud but I don't want to take any chance of making my new neighbors mad.
So now I'm looking to see what I can do with a 5.0 system which I assume means bookshelf speakers. The center channel speaker though has to be very low because my new TV stand only allows about 5 1/2" of center speaker height. It's probably my ears but I guess I don't have the best, so the speakers don't have to be the best quality ones out there, just something decent.
Everybody asks budget so since I was looking at something like the Polk RM6750's for @$299, I'd have to say my budget is $300-400.
What recommendations are there for that price range or lower?
P.S. I have cash so would like to find someplace local I could buy them (Houston) but can probably work something out if mail order is the only way.
