Want to put some speakers in my work room to listen to music. And when it comes to music I'm very picky about sound quality.


Currently I am just going to use it for music, may update it to a HT later on.


I have a good 7.1 onkyo receiver that my brother gave me, it was pretty expensive new when he got it for the receiver alone.


For subwoofer I was looking at Polk PSW10, BIC F12 or Dayton 1200.


Since the room is rather long and I'm only going to have 2 speakers and a sub (may get a center channel with good highs) I would prefer floor standing speakers.

And my budget for the 3 speakers is around $600. So if I end up going with the BIC Sub it's only $200 per speaker or if I do the Dayton it's about $250 for each speaker.


Was looking at the Polk 75t's but haven't seen too many reviews on them.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated


Also, the room is about 10' wide and 18-20' long and the speakers would be facing the long way so would have to carry the sound across the room.

I can tell you that those subs would be inadequate for that size room.

Assuming that he has 8ft ceiling he is at around 1600 cu. ft.


Either the Dayton or Bic F12 would work for that room on a budget.


To the OP: there is no need for large towers if you got a subwoofer

You are right. I knew I should have used a calculator. LOL

Then what 2 speakers (or 3 with center)

Center channel would work well?

If you want to get front 3 right now.


The Pioneer SP-BS-22-LR bookshelfs with a Pioneer SP-C22 Center is a good buy with in your budget.


Or you could get the Pioneer SP-FS52-LR Towers.


Cambridge S30's with an S50 center is another good buy right now too
