Nothing hung, Maybe my question should be asked as would 2 subbs inline with my MTX speakers be a huge upgrade to my system.? MY first subbs came along a few years back witch is the Velodyne and it was a night and day experience for me. wall placement with the 2 MTX speakers is 1 foot as of now, the subb is up against the wall in my living room area. what are your feeling on my current MTX floor speakers.? Not so crazy about loud as im am with the sound being RICH. Low end is where its at for me. 2 grand budget unless the next step is worth it. Thanks for responding.!
To me it looks like you have an old school stereo receiver with some vintage design speakers as well. Can’t really find any info on the sub.
So rich sound with low-end.... when I think rich sounding I’m thinking PMC, Harbeth, Quad or Kudos & Neat speaker brands. These brands are going to be more difficult to find, esp with that budget. They have a very British sound, not the one often associated with B&W and Monitor Audio. MA is a little richer sounding, B&W I find currently sounds bright. Monitor Audio has pretty decent low-end.
Monitor Audio Silver 300 and maybe a new receiver like the NAD C338 or better the C368, would give you a nice updated system and also allow you to hook up a subwoofer if you feel you need the additional bass response. I think coming from a horn loaded speaker like you have these could be a good speaker to move to.
Crutchfield would be a nice place to shop. They have pretty easy return policies. I’d also ask if they’d provide a discount if you bought both a receiver and speakers and give them your total budget and what you’re considering.
Other brands to consider and they have them would be Dynaudio X34 or Emit 30, Revel F36. Both of these will be more neutral sounding. Soft dome vs metal tweeters just have just different presentations.
FWIW I listen to hip-hop, rock, alt-rock, blues and jazz mostly. I own Dynaudio speakers.
