What did you pay for your speakers? - Page 3

post #61 of 72
Just bought the following speakers for an HT build at my new house:

5 JTR triple 8s for center, surround, and DSXY wide
2 JTR triple 12s for L and R
Paradigm reference sub 15

I traded my soul for them....smile.gif

^^^

sadly, my soul isn't worth that much... redface.gif

salk ht2-tl's, ht2c, ht-1's... submersive hp...

too darn much, but worth every penny... as someone else noted earlier, the endless cycle of upgrades cost more than the "final" upgrade did...

Yikes... I hardly dare to count... and I haven't the price I paid in memory, so I'm going by the pricelist - which is higher than what I paid.

Front speakers $12.5k
Subwoofers $11.5k
Surround speakers. 8x$1k
Front high $1k
Front wide $1k

Center not bought yet - will cost $3-3.5k

( None available outside Sweden, so not much use in stating make and model. )

Back in HS, I got into audio, thanks to a Klipsch Promedia 4.1 computer speaker system, but never had the money and was happy with the computer speakers. In college I started dreaming of my systems and finally managed to get one after finishing college, though it took some time still. I got them as a group so don't remember the exact breakdown of each item. I want to replace the AVR but figure I'll do so once I move into a house of my own since it's adequate enough for now and most of my web apps run through my PC or Xbox.

from AVS - $1,600
2 x Klipsch RF-82 II
Klipsch RC-62 II
2 x Klipsch RS-52 II

From Newegg
2 x Klipsch RF-52 II and Onkyo TX-SR608 - $800
2 x Klipsch RW-12D - $750

Total: $3,150

I was planning on buying a place and since I wanted to have a system in my room, I began looking at something. I originally thought of getting a Klipsch Icon WF system so started saving for it. Well, I also scrounged around CL for any good deal for speakers around my area. I did manage for find a great system, though the left and right speakers have some damage and one has the base breaking apart. I only noticed this after listening and decided to go with them due to the low price and not hearing a difference between the damaged and undamaged speakers.

2 x Klipsch RF-35
Klipsch RC-35
4 x Klipsch RB-25
$600

Denon AVR-1712 - $250
Total for second set: $850

Total spent not counting video: $4,000. On the cheaper side of the some of the systems but I am more than pleased with the performance. Subs shake the room and house and speakers sound great.

Don't you mean RS-62 II? I had a good laugh imagining center channel speakers on your walls tongue.gif

I wish I could have tower but for my situation, I had to have in-ceiling speakers.

I have a 7.2 system

5 SpeakerCraft AIM8 Fives retail for $895.00 each


2 SpeakerCraft TIME Fives used as Wides retail for $1,300.00 each


1 TIME Controller to raise and lower the Time Fives retail for $550.00


1 HSU MBM-12 MK2 Mid Base retail for $500.00


SVSound PB 13-Ultra retial for $2000.00



After getting everything as cheap as possible, I have about $8,000.00 in my system.

I picked up a 5.1 set off Craigslist

Polk Rti-A7 mains
Polk CSi-A6 center
Polk Rti-A3 surrounds
Polk DSW Pro 550 sub

All for a little over $1k if I remember correctly.

I sold the A3's, and stored the sub for later use.

Another CL find was a pair of Polk FXi-A4 di-poles for about $150 and a pair of Polk Rti4 speakers (back surround) for about $140.

Running dual BIC/Acoustech PL-200 subs. One new (From dealer), one lightly used (off CL). Total about $450 for both.

Upgraded the caps and resistors on the crossovers in the A7 towers and A6 center (Clarity Caps and Mills resistors) about $300 or so. Very, very nice improvement.

This of course does not include the AVR and dedicated amp or the other sets of speakers I bought before settling on the "modded" Rti-A line of Polks.
