Because you have small children, tower speakers may be the better choice for safety reasons. Towers will...

The BIC F12 is a decent budget subwoofer (heck, I own the V1220 for my office area), but it is not in the same class as the SVS I mentioned. Bic also makes the Acoustech H-100, which is a grade up...

If this is for a stereo system, then I'd be looking at ESLs (Martin Logan) or Planar designs (Magnepan). In order for speakers to disappear, one needs a very large and deep sound stage, which these...

The only advise I can give you is to go out and audition speakers in your price range. Only you know what is the right speaker for you and speakers will carry their own sound signatures. Buying in...

Welcome to AVS! Glad to see you've been doing some research. The two speakers you have selected are very comparable to each other (spec and driver-wise) and both will need a subwoofer in order to...

The same way the SubMersive "handily?" beats any subwoofer (except for JTRs -- they seem to always finish 1 & 2 or 2 & 1 in subwoofer shootouts). Mark is a genius when it comes to his designs. But...

Like any brand, these are only suggestions for you to audition. Sure, floor standing speakers would be fine. I was just trying to hit your $1k budget and since you'll be adding a sub, bookshelf...

Yes, it's a valid concern. But more speakers are blown by underpowered amplifiers than powerful ones. Speakers don't especially like square waves (clipping) and tweaking the volume up and up can...

Oh, I've heard of Swan, yet I thought they were a high-end speaker company. Had no idea that they have products that run through all price ranges. Pretty impressive company and impressive website!

Totally agree on the SB-1000 choice. It's at a whole other level from the Dayton subs. I got this sub for my son for his office area (under 1,200 cu. ft) and it has worked out very well.
