wholy moley, i just replaced a very old pair of Bose interaudio-4000 10" 2-ways (which way back when i had replaced the cheapo paper tweeter with some better silk dome units) with a pair of JBL 8" 3-way E60's.

the E60's handle more power but the Bose had a richer bass. i do have a small sony powered sub to help in the low end. i'm slowly building a HT setup now that i have a panny 42" plasma.

it's always been the case that the smaller the woofer driver the less bass was produced well at higher power. i heard a pair of 15" Cerwin Vegas a few years back and man oh boy did they have a nice punch to them.

the tweeter on E60's seem to be a tad sensitive, but i can EQ it.

Panasonic 50" 8UK - Monitor
Receiver = Kenwood VR409 (HTB)
Front = Audionics (vintage 70's)
Center = Kenwood (HTB)
Rear = Bose 201's
SW = Kenwood 8" (HTB)
I am in process of upgrading. Just did the TV, now I am looking to replace the center channel speaker. I am planning on testing the Klipsch Synergy III C-2.
Any comments or suggestions, other than damn that's a suck system, would be appreciated. I spent my big bucks on the TV.

Toshiba 30" Widescreen HDTV monitor
Pioneer VSX-815 Receiver
Fronts: Dali Ikon 2
Center: Dali Ikon Vokal 2
Rears: Crap no-name rears; Soon to be Dali Ikon On-Walls
Sub: MTX SW2 12" 100W

I just got rid of a pair of JBL E-80's and a Polk CSi-3 center and replaced them with the speakers above. I could not be happier. It's like eating flank steak one day and then enjoying a nice juicy New York Strip.

Jimp: I would suggest looking elsewhere for the Center channel speaker. I know Klipsch is a major brand name and alot of people are happy with them, but think of it this way. BB sells them for around $250.00 with a markup of lets say $75.00 so the wholesale price from Klipsch is 175.00, now assuming Klipsch wanted to make $50-$75 off of each speaker that brings the price down to $125-$100.00 and it cost probably $25.00 to make it. So what kind of technology could you buy to put in that speaker for $75.00.

Anywho it really all comes down to what you like and what pleases your ear. If you like the sound of the Klipsch then go for it, just test and compare to some other speakers.

dburchet - You are absolutely right. I tested a paradigm center yesterday and it sounded like the treble was turned all the way down. So I returned it and the salesman suggested I look at the Klipsch because they are "brighter". Anyway, the credit card bill just came in for the TV, so I am holding off for a while. BTW - How do you like your new speakers?
post #131 of 3367
My stuff is really (really) old from the mid-80s

Infinity RSIIIb - fronts
Infinity Kappa5 - surrounds/rears
Infinty Video 1 - center
VMPS "large" - subwoofer

I've felt the sound change on these things over the last twenty years but just now have come to the conclusion to replace them - at least the main and subwoofer speakers. I've had so much enjoyment from these things it's hard to let them go.

Jimp, I absolutely love the Dali's. I was listening to the Eagles When Hell Freezes Over Cd and I had it on hotel california, I could hear the plastic pick strum against the guitar strings. I was amazed. Sure I am not looking forward to the CC bill when it comes in but these babies are worth it.

Pastrami King --- Nothing personal, but when I saw your screen name I immediately had visions of Tony Siragusa. Now he is the ultimate Pastrami King.
