In a bit of a predicament...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm home for college (Yay for surviving freshman year), and I'm living in my Beach House. My family and I do a sort of temporary move to it every summer, and I don't feel like moving my very large CV Floorstanders. Well, a bit more like didn't, as I'm already moved in and have no intention of making the hour long drive to get them again. So I'm using my Monitor Audio i-deck speakers, which are actually QUITE good, especially given their small size.

Now, my problem here is... I'm a basshead. I can get by without it, but I have the money so I figure I can do something about the distinct lack of low-end on these. Originally, I was just going to get a subwoofer, but I'm being sucked in by the various bookshelves I've been seeing on my subwoofer quest. Now, I have an Amplifier, so the speakers being active or passive doesn't effect me. As far as the speakers were concerned, I was looking at Audioengine P4s, Audioengine A2s, Swan M200MKIIs, and a pair of M-Audio BX5a's for $185 at a local pawn shop. As far as the sub was concerned, I was mainly looking at the Dayton Sub-120 and Sub-100. Thing is, if I get the new speakers, I'd be looking at a budget of about $250-300, and with the subwoofer my budget would be closer to $175. My budget differs based on what I buy mostly due to my father needing to approve and he doesn't see the point in large subwoofers at all.

To sum it up, I need opinions on what I should be buying here in my situation.

Oh almost forgot, I listen to a lot of Dubstep and Rap, but I also like 70s-80s rock and some various acoustic things (Dispatch, Jack Johnson, etc).
