Klipsch is one of the most popular brands of speakers, and for good reason. Plenty of people love the sound, the clarity and the forwardness. Others, not so much or at all, but that’s the case with...

A normal 5.1 setup can be a better value and is usually sonically superior to a Sonos-type setup (not that you can’t have both for different reasons). However, searching for speakers is a daunting...

Actually, I agree with you. This is one of the few Bose threads that have some interesting comments and hasn’t gone too far off the deep end like so many others. Bose bashing began when the initial...

Just curious, why are you crossing over at 45-50 Hz? Most people will crossover at 80 Hz. Once you do that, any speaker, including the HTD Level THREE’s will perform better.

Both fine subs (does JL Audio make a bad sub?), but the F110 being legendary or not, the E112 has better specs, which one would expect from a larger driver. It also depends upon what type of music...

That’s a very nice list of speakers. Looks like you did indeed do your homework :). Unfortunately, I’ve only auditioned the Hsu from your list, but I think any on the list would be very nice to...

In most cases that's correct. We always hear when someone has problems, so the question of quality gets amplified (such as the NXG NX-500-BAS). And we don't hear from people that have had no...

I find it curious that you quoted my response out of context, but ignored the statement that fueled my response. You will note that I didn’t respond to another of jdm’s snide comments about Bose...

I don’t know how you could possibly go wrong with the Gamma 218. It looks to be a very serious subwoofer, and I’ve always been attracted to dual-opposed sealed designs, just like you have. I think...

Yes, that was one of the best reads! I wish I had been there. I think most of the confusion came from people who could not tell sealed from ported. Still, they did pick their favorites, even...

You’re right, gbreda. There is no way to compare the S3000i to the Mariana or the Gothams. Memory is fleeting, especially mine. The Gothams (4 of ‘em) were in a very large room filled with 40,000...

You have a few choices. Floor standing speakers are possible, although the left side of the room (left of the nook where I assume the entertainment center would go) doesn’t look promising. You...

I hear what you’re saying and understand where you are coming from. I don’t like the term musical either. Perhaps more succinct may be the better term? You’ve owned far more subs than I, and I’ve...
