Suggestions for 3.1 bookshelf speakers under $300

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Im looking to purchase some front speakers and a subwoofer. The house I recently moved into already has rear speakers in the ceiling, so it'll be 5.1 eventually. It will be used almost exclusively for TV and Movies. Im looking to spend under $300, though more towards $200 range would be preferable...if thats even possible.

Not sure if any more information is needed, if so let me know.

Anyone have any suggestions?

You really need at least $300 for the subwoofer alone. If it were me I would spend the $300 on the front L/R if possible.

Option 1 ($300 on just front L/R)

Ascend Acoustics CBM-170SE ($298 during sale)
Cambridge S30 ($219)

Option 2 (3.0, 3.1, or 2.1)

Front L/R: Pioneer BS22 ($89 on sale at Best Buy)
Center: Pioneer C22 ($99)
Subwoofer: BIC F12 (would put you over budget), Pioneer SW-MK2, or Martin Logan Dynamo 300 or skip completely and save for a better subwoofer from HSU Research, SVS, Outlaw or Rhythmik. The Pioneer and Martin Logan options are really stopgap. Neither extends very low but would do better than your bookshelf speakers for bass.
