I am needing some fronts for a very large room.


- Room 25x25x20

- Prefer to not get towers (not very visually appealing)

- $200 range

- Mostly for music

- Sub will be added later

What kind of power do you have? Meaning are you using an integrated Stereo Amp or a Home theater receiver?

I would say the BIC acoustec HT-64. Buy it at Overstock for $220 or shoot BIC an offer of 200 and see if they accept.


I say this because yours is a big room and those speakers are very efficient, meaning they will get very loud even with a lower power receiver. If it says 90watts "on the box" it is probably closer to 30 or 40 unless it is one of a few select brands that advertise their true outputs... but I digress.


Those speakers will really rock!

What about these choices? Anything better? How will the kits compare to hsu?
