I've done about all the reading I can do... now I need help. I am completely starting from scratch with a 5 speaker budget of around $3,000. I already know I'm getting a Denon X4000 AVR, and a ryhtmik FV15HP sub. I thought I had it all figured out with Definitive technology towers, until forum members started pointing out I'd be wasting money on the subs in the BP8060ST towers since I am already getting a dedicated sub.
I want to have mains that still have 'kick' and good mid-bass, as I'll be leaving the sub crossed below ~80hz for the real heavy deep bass only. What really drew me to the Def Techs were their capability for bipole sound with speakers in the front and back, as well as powered subs for solid mid-bass. I read every review there is and there were no dissapointments in these features. I know I should go listen for myself but I'm currently in the desert overseas and I'd REALLY like to know what I want before I get back.
Please help me decide on some high efficiency, good mid/high range speakers!!!
