Sub/Sat under $1000

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
What does the community think the best Sub/Sat system is for under $1000. Bigger isn't always better, and there's the wife acceptance factor.

That's way too broad a question as there are a huge number of good answers. Do you have specific requirements for sound, features, and aesthetics?

You should post this in the Speakers forum where you will get many more responses.

With a $1000 budget you don't need to be in the HTiB area.

You will need to be more specific though as there is no consensus best sub/sat system. Also provide your room dimensions.

A good start might be something like 5 of these Energy V-Mini speakers or 5 NHT sats and a SVS compact subwoofer.

I am looking for satellites I can mount on the wall without hitting a stud, if thats possible. I did listen to a kef 105 setup and it sounded really good to me. I currently have a set of celestion F30 tower speakers, Klipsch RC52 centre and no name surrounds. I want something that sounds better than what I have but in a much smaller form factor.

I don't know anything about your Celestion speakers but the RC52 is a larger center channel. Doubt a little satellite center can compete with that.

I've owned sat/sub systems and then replaced with bookshelf or tower speakers. The bookshelf/towers always sounded better.

the laws of physics are in effect here. you wont get bigger sound from much smaller speakers unless the larger speakers are not very good.

Try Cambridge Audio Minx speakers.

How would buying the matching bookshelfs to the centre channel work if I hung them on the walls. The only reason I wanted a satellite set was to have a better acceptance factor

The RB-51 are the matching bookshelf speakers and they do have a keyhole slot so they can be mounted on the wall.

If you want to angle them you can use something like this bracket.

Thanks guys I went with a klipsch RB 41 II's for the surrounds and Rb 51's for the fronts with my rc 52 for the center. I hung the bookshelfs on the walls and put the center on my AV cabinet. I am using an Klipsch 8' sub for the lows. I will have to say I am happy with the aesthetics and the sound quality. Gotta Love the efficiency of klipsch.
