It all depends, are you okay with getting used speakers or if you are demanding something brand new??

What do you think? Pairing with a Yamaha RX-V675.
From the ones I have heard, my pick is still Ascend 170SE if new. If used, you might be able to score some sweet deals too.

The Ascend 170se's are great speakers as well. FWIW, the Wave Crest HVL-1's and the 170's were designed by the same guy who happens to know a thing or two about speaker design I have heard :)

Check your local craigslist listing, audiogon, avsforum for sale forum, us audio mart, even ebay..

You could get a pair of speakers with original msrp around $1000 - $1500 for around $400 - $500..

For example, a few pair of the Ascend Sierra-1 recently sold for $450 here and I have seen Vienna Acoustics Haydn Grand for about $400 too..

check out a pair of the Behringer Truth for sale in the sale section here. I have read good things about them. A smaller sized speaker that blew me away at an Audio show I attended was the Silverline Minuet. Check out some the reviews on them and see about finding a pair used.

My vote goes to the Chane A1rx-c as hands down the best sub $400 (new) speaker out there. I know the Wavecrests get lots of love but I haven't heard them so I can't say one way or the other. I have heard the Chane speakers and they are awesome and definitely punch way above their weight.
