But you get something brand new and get rid of the old piece of junk =)
I'm running dual XS15s and could really use the SubEQ, I'll be listing my Onkyo 818 and XPA-5 when I find a 4311ci or 4520.
There's an open box 4520 with full warranty on amazon for $1750. If I were buying today I might go for that one. Sub EQ HT is nice. I'll be getting a pair of subs in today and will be putting it to good use.
Thanks for your response. Here is my feedback.
I visited my local BBY tonight and was able to hear them setup in a surround configuration. I like the sound.
1. They are a HTiB and will not give you "BIG SPEAKER" sound.
Understandably but I still want "GOOD" sound.
2. They are ideal for a small room (apartment, dorm, bedroom).
Our living room is 13'x 16' and opens into a small kitchen.
3. They are ideal for a budget.
I can get them CHEAP through an employee accommodation.
4. They have small drivers (2.5" mids and a 10" sub) so power is not their forte.
I am still a n00b and don't know what this means.
5. They max volume (sound pressure) is not a consideration for small satellites with small "ish" subs. If you are looking for a decent sound for movies and ambient music, then these work. If you want to scare the neighbors while watching movies or crank up a drunken music fest then look elsewhere. If you want "holy cow" in your face, heart stopping sound, you have to go big and powerful, period.
I am in a middle unit town home. Need to be respectful to neighbors. Again looking for decent quality and sound.
6. You generally pay for what you get. With regard to satellites (HTiB systems), the Polks do sound great.
I can get Klipsch quintets for a similar price to what I would pay for the Polks but it would not include a sub.
7. They don't require (or accept) a lot of power. The satellites handle up to 100W, which makes them ideal for a low-midrange receiver.
I am considering running them with the Denon AV-X1000 or X2000. 80 vs 95 RMS Power
8. Mounting is easy!
YES it is.
9. If you upgrade to a larger system, they don't have much of a resale value, however, they work quite well as a bedroom, office, or garage system!!!
I would use them again somewhere else.
I'm just changing the casters on them to some that look like the ones on PC chairs. A little less industrial looking than the metal ones that were on them. I'm surprised how tight the bass is for an 18" driver. My first time with a driver that size so what the hell do I know.
