I need to buy some home theater speakers, but have no clue what's good and can't find any good comparisons and ratings online. Looking to spend up to $550 or so and need 5.1 speakers. Best Buy told me Klipsch HD Theater 500 are good, but I've read that the subwoofer isn't so good. Anyone know anything about JBL Cinema Sound CS6100? Other than those, any other recommendations? Speakers are mostly for everyday t.v. watching with occasional movies and radio. Is it true that most surround speakers aren't great for music? Any speakers that are good for both? Need lots of help please. What are your suggestions?

c400cen $79.88

c401*2 LR $159.76

c401*2 or c400sur*2 $159.76

Total: $399.40


Which leaves $100.60 for a sub. Not much. Maybe a parts express sub? (By the way, those speakers are usually ~$99, but they're on sale right now.)


For your other question, if speakers are good for music, then they'll likely be good for movies as well. But, at this price range, it's not really something to worry about (unless you decide to spend all $500 on a 2.0 or 2.1 set; which may be a better idea if you'd consider spending more at some point in the near future).
