I'm thinking about picking up three of these for my L/C/R. Right now I use some low-end mismatched speakers, so these should definitely be an improvement. I have 3 subs, (2 18" sonotubes and a 15" cube.) My HT is in an unfinished basement with no walls. 40% music / 40% movies / 20% games. http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=302-780

My receiver is an Onkyo 674. I assume it won't have a problem with these 4ohm speakers, but I'm not sure



I'm also thinking about ordering the kits w/out the cabinets, which knocks them from $430 to $297 each. I'm not the best woodworker, but $133 x 3 = $399. I already have 1 and 1/2 sheets of MDF laying around, and can probably get screws, liquid nails, etc. for $50 or so. That's some considerable savings, which would be very nice.

They also sell this kit for $455 with curved cabinets. I assume the $25 price difference between the square and curved cabs is just because the curved ones look better? (I do not care whatsoever what they look like, I probably won't even paint the mdf if I build them myself.)


I searched around but haven't seen many reviews on these at all. Any input/thoughts is appreciated. Thanks.

d'oh, I'm sure you're right. I read that thread all the time but everyone just talks about DIY subs so I didn't even think about posting over there. Mods, feel free to delete this post, thanks.

thanks for the link. those kits look like really nice bang for the buck speakers! i don't think i'm going to go with those though, because they probably are lower end than i want, and i don't want to have to build the crossovers


i'm fairly happy with the speakers i have now, i think they sound good. so, if i'm going to buy some new ones, i want to get some pretty nice ones that will make a significant difference / and not have to worry about upgrading for a while.
