From that list I would go with the Infinitys. They are proven performers and very high bang for the buck.

With no subwoofer, I would go for a pair of tower speakers. It's hard to believe that the LSR308s would have deeper extension than the p363s. Either are very good for the price though.

VTF15h is about the best you can do for a grand. I think the FV15HP is worth the extra expenditure though. The new company Reaction also has some really killer looking subs for around $1k.

The VTF3 would stomp a PB1000. You might think about settling for a VTF2 which will still outperform a PB1000.

The Emotiva looks like it could be good. One thing to like about it is definitely the pre-outs. However there are other similarly priced receivers with pre-outs as well. The Hsu speakers are good...

Nice talk. Interesting to see his dismissal of room RT, I would have to watch it again to get a better appreciation of his justification for it. I think a response from the room treatment guys would...

There isn't any reason to think that your sub would roll off down at 30 Hz. The specs certainly do not make that claim. Like I said about Jim Wilson's charts, they don't really tell you that much and...

This is an ultra-rare occasion where I have to agree with commsysman. ID does not absolutely necessitate better value. The sound of high end speakers are a subjective preference, period. Aesthetics...

The loudness of the sub should be matched to the speakers by the AVR after you have run the calibration routine. Once the calibration is complete, any movement of the gain knob on the subwoofer...

Behringer Truth 2031/2030 passive monitors discontinued?

It looks like one of the best affordable speakers, the venerable Behringer Truth monitors, are no longer available. That is a shame, in my opinion these were one of the very best speakers at their...

The big difference between floor-standing speakers and bookshelf speakers isn't loudness so much as it is bass extension. For that reason I would get a pair of bookshelf speakers and a sub. An Hsu...

You have raised a few issues. First of all, the gain on the sub is pretty much an arbitrary point and does't have so much to do with its output capabilities. You could very well be completely out of...

I think any of those subs would be stellar, although perhaps the SB2000 might not be the best for loud volumes. I might also mention the Hsu ULS-15 (http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/uls-15.html)...

+1 this. Some years ago I was openly skeptical about the benefits of Rythmik's servo technology, so Brian just sent me a sub to borrow so I could hear the difference myself. I could not doubt it...

I only half agree with you here. Subs do have a qualitative aspect, so even for the same SPL there is a difference. However I would agree that a big challenge for subs is getting enough output...

You can keep the sub level matched if you want. Many guys around here, myself included, like to run the bass a bit hot. It's a matter of personal preference. Yes, human hearing is not as sensitive to...

Hi Orion, I would probably go with sub at right corner. Yes the left seat has a couple nasty dips there, but remember that the dip above 80 Hz isn't as critical since you are crossing below that...

I have to say, that PV15X looks like it would be an awesome end table subwoofer. It reminds me of a 'super' Hsu VTF3 with its side-firing driver. A great setup: two of those suckers flanking the...

As usual, in place of a cogent defense of exaggerated product claims we have only a personal attack. But leaving with a glib insult was a nice touch, very classy.
