Hey iCrap what up? Saw you in my wild goose chase thread

I think I should trust what I've been told, since these guys probably know more than I do about speakers..

I think I'll return my setup and get the AV-40.

So I have this other question - how difficult is it to set up unpowered speakers + an amp?

Does it have any advantages?
Those would be so much better than the sonys.

No idea on the unpowered speakers, but i wouldn't think i'd be that difficult.

Our trinitron lasted about 7 years. It won't turn on but the. Older one is still alive, but there's areally high frequency sound coming from it so we don't use it.

I'd go for the klipsch 2.1

What's wrong with Vizio?
They make fantastic televisions without the brand name mark-up.

compared to a Samsung or Panasonic there eye sores. I mean there great tvs for people that dont care about quality, but my point is Sony doesn't look good anymore they cant produce a good black at all but thats my opinion i stare at them all day long and even Philips(or should i say funai) look better then Sony but enough off topic.


the m-audios should be great

Are you guys absolutely sure that the AV-40's will be better than my setup?

Remember, I also have the gigantic sub-woofer

My specs:

300W (RMS) Satellite: 75W + 75W (10% T.H.D., 1 kHz, 4 ohms), 65mm (250Hz-20KHz), Sub-woofer: 150W (10% T.H.D., 1 kHz, 2 ohms), 160mm (50Hz-250KHz).

Is there anyone here that can do a valid comparison between this and the AV-40's?

Bump:
Since these are supposed to be 300w speakers, I decided to test how loud they can get.
I closed all the doors and warned everybody in the house, and then turned them up about 80%. They were so loud, I had to cover my ears. I couldn't even go up to 100%. All while remaining perfectly clear.

So yea, I think these aren't "crap".
