Do they sound as good as they look? biggrin.gif

They sound better than they look, and that is saying something because with the new setup they look amazing.

Think of your fans like cars. Your sports car will be faster than a diesel truck, but when you put a 5 ton load behind both of them the truck will outrun the sports car every day. Which is why a GT with kill a Slipstream on a heatsink.

I have Sony SS-B1000's, and a polk PSW-10. Not really that impressed with this sub. It is my first sub that I didn't build and match components. For 50 bucks, couldn't say no.

You really can't complain for 50 bucks, but it's definitely not a sub I'd recommend.

That's understandable honestly. You should have picked some different bookshelfs too, I'll bet those are lacking pretty well too. For $50, the Polk PSW-10 is okay. I certainly would NEVER buy it at full price, and I would ALWAYS recommend a better one (Dayton SUB80 at the least). But for $50 its not bad. It's a really boomy sounding subwoofer, and it really lacks low notes badly too, for being a 10" driver.

I paid 40€ for my Audio Pro Sub B1.20 + a rather expensive "looking" 2meter rca cable + y rca cable
Can't really complain tongue.gif
Awesome sub for my apartment and my use.

Hey OCN, I'm planning out the new home theater for the new house I'm getting. I need some decent towers for front channels and a matching center. I am on a strict budget of no more than $120/ch (I know that's hella low, but that's what I'm working with. I got my D38s for $30 and they're epic)

I'm looking for quality moreso than loudness. 100W RMS/ea is more than enough.

Recommendations?

I can't help you, I'm retired! Get off my lawn! (or talk to one of these fine folks)

I recommend you just save and increase your budget. A budget that low means super entry level stuff like the polk monitor series (which i am not a fan of) or getting amazing deals on craigslist/somewhere else online. You shouldn't bank on getting another deal like the one you got from me because those aren't all that common

If you removed the floorstanding need I could recommend some bookshelf speakers that you would hopefully like a lot and are far under your budget.

Well if I get bookshelf speakers, they have to be pretty damn good with sound that will actually fill a room. I'll also need stands, of course. Are there specific stands that you lot find to be the best as well?

I'm someone who knows good sound, but doesn't know exactly what to buy to achieve it.

how large of a room are we talking, and what kind of SPL are you expecting? anyway I'd recommend infinity p162s for $85/each and the stands I recommend are sanus bf-31b which are only ~$30/pair.
