Which of these speakers produce better quality sound for watching movies and sports on TV for a living room scenario.

 

1) Klipsch Reference RB51/RB61 speakers

2) Pioneer BS22 speakers

3) Bose Acoustimass 10 speakers

 

Would appreciate any comments

Out of those choices, the Klipsch would be the best by far. Bose shouldn't even be on the list, and the Pioneer are low-end budget speakers (although they are supposed to be decent for the price).

Gt Engineer

configuration is 5.1

price range is below $2000

So you need 5 speakers, a sub and an AVR? Room size? Main listening position distance?


And what does "Gt Engineer" have to do with this?

I think he was addressing me, "gtengineer". Ha!


I also believe Klipsch is a great choice for this budget. Of course with this much budget, quite a few other brands become available to you. Generally speaking, when a shopper has a budget like this to work with on speakers for home theater use, I recommend spending up to 1/2 of it on a good subwoofer since it is critical to the proper performance of a home theater system. I've been out of the home theater scene for a while so I don't know what the current go-to brand is for subwoofers. Back when I was in it, SVS and HSU were top brands. For all I know they still might be, but you should definitely ask around in the subwoofer forum.

Do you already have a receiver? If so, which make and model.


if the $2K budget is only for 5.1 you can do better than choice 2 and 3 for sure.

Look at the size of each speaker...and you should be able to eliminate one choise. For SQ of a speaker, size matter...

Look at the HSU Hybrid 5.1 packages - if budget gets tight, you can go 3.1 and get some smaller surrounds
