The thing is the name and look of the speakers isn't even trying to be top shelf so maybe they are what they claim the be and decent medium quality speakers?


I'm not looking for spectacular, but better then a HTIB, as I can pick up these for around 170 online and a Marantz SR4002 for about the same price as the Onkyo SR800 HTIB I was looking at.


I have a ps3 so the Marantz is preferred due to it's ability to accept hdmi as an input. I also have a large room and favor bigger drivers, to me even crappy large drivers sound better then 3 inch satellites.


Thanks.

the TSC ones look nice but the 3 inch woofers scare me a little, all the satalite systems ive heard with small satalite woofers sound bad, either the subwoofer goes mid bass and it locatable and talks to you, or there is no mid bass.



The jbl's look amazing at 90 per pair, still out of budget for 4 but at 90 each they are way out of budget.


I still almost want to try the white van ones,... they can't be that bad can they? I mean worse comes to worse i could make a new crossover or something if it's really bad right? it's just a couple caps and coils.
