I have been researching speakers for a few months now, trying to figure out which speakers to buy. I plan to use them for music half the time, and gaming/movies the other half of the time. I currently have a pair of Energy C-7's, which sound amazing (for both music and movies), but one of the tweeters recently went out. I love the sound of the C-7's though. I believe I got them in 2007. I am also not sure if I should go with a 2.1 or 3.1 set up. I would prefer 2.1, as that way I could get better speakers, and also because 3.1 is useless for music. As far as room size, these would be going in a 10'x12' room. So, experts, if you had $1500 to spend on a pair of speakers (preferably floor-standing), what would you buy? I would spend another $300-$500 on the sub.
