So right now I have two pairs of speakers. I have inherited both so please don't hate on me for the brands. One is a Logitech Sub that uses RCA connections that now go to Bose Acoustimass Cubes instead of the original logitech speakers. The other(the one i want to upgrade) is an Onkyo Amp/Receiver, Polk Subwoofer, and 5 terrible Sony speakers. I don't want to upgrade the Onkyo or Polk just the 5 Sonys. I actually like how the Acoustimass speakers sound considering they were free, plus they sound much better than my Sonys out in my living room. I would like my living room set (Sonys) to sound as good as the Cubes or better for less than $400. I feel this is reasonable. The first thing i run into is the Klipsch Quintet 5.0 but I have heard they aren't great with music? Obviously if the Bose are good enough for me I may have lower standards than some of you but they sound good as far as I'm concerned. Any help would be great!

Okay, so the Bose sounds better than some crappy Sony speakers!? Don't confuse that with the Bose acoustimas speakers being good! They have NO tweeters.

For 400 dollars, you can get a decent set of bookshelves speakers!

See this review of the Pioneer Andrew Jones speakers. Much better than your Sony speakers, Bose cubes, or the Quintets: http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/floorstanding/pioneer-sp-pk52fs


Instead of the towers in the front, you could go for 2 pairs of the bookshelves and the center. Those are well within your budget.


Here is the owners' thread for that series. If you read through the last week or so, you can probably find best prices on them: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1278774/pioneers-speaker-genius-hits-low-price-point


If you catch them on sale, that would give you money for a sub, such as the Dayton SUB-1200: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=300-629
