Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum, but have been dabbling in amateur HT for awhile now. I am in the market for surround speakers to compliment a pair of Onix X-l-s fronts and an Onix x-l-c center (and a homegrown G&R Research 12" P/R sub). Receiver is an Onkyo TXSR603B.


My room is about 15'x13' with 8' ceilings. The wife has control over the room layout so there is not going to be optimal placement for the surrounds (likely stuck on bookshelves behind the couch.)


Anyway, I'd be very interested in getting some recommendations on some good value surrounds for around $200/pair? We will be watching mostly movies and TV, with some CD music. I've read a little on bipole/dipole, etc.. seems like a good idea but not sure if this is going to be possible at this price point.



Thanks very much.

I bought the Jamo speakers at vanns. Center, Bookshelf and Dipoles all for $238.00. Normally would be around $1000 if you paid full price. However they are in the mail and I cannot give you a review.


Did research on the brand. Supposedly they make good speakers and are a Danish manufacturer. Klipsch owns them. Just not very popular in the states.


Here is the link. http://www.vanns.com/shop/servlet/brand/288


Happy hunting.

Do you care if they match your current speakers? color and looks?

No need to match current speakers. Actually, I would prefer black to blend in with black bookshelves that these will likely be sitting on.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I ended up ordering the Jamo C400SUR speakers. Figured it would be worth $80 to give them a shot, plus I've had good buying experiences with vanns in the past.

$200/pr, huh? Well, all righty...I've been a bit biased towards JBL lately, and can think of a 3-Way Bookshelf pair that was being sold within that, I'll have to hunt for it, tho.

JBL ES20BK 3-Way 5 1/4" Bookshelf Speaker - Black (Pair)


These come to approx $210, which isn't that much over...you won't regret their quality, tho...I've owned a 7.2 system from them, and almost knock my room right off the map.
