Looking for large speakers and amp for bass

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am most likely going to be picking up this amp and was looking to ask you guys on what to look for and maybe where to find a nice set of speakers to go with that, the only issue i am having is i have some ridiculous specs these speakers have to meet and have yet to find a set around me that fits them, i am looking for a pair of floor standing speakers, older models that have a 15" woofer in them and are preferably 3 way or more but i can't find any of quality that aren't like 300 bucks. My budget is around (+/- 20 bucks) 150 dollars for speakers, is there anything in that range around?

DO NOT SUGGEST A SEPERATE SUB, I AM NOT DOING THAT

EDIT: ok, things have changed, i am looking for advice on an amp and a pair of huge speakers for around 200 bucks, preferably used but any advice would be good.

70 watts? Seems a little low for lots of bass.

ya that unit you will be lucky to get any bass out of it at all, 70w will hardly push mid range speakers.

Ya 70watts wont get you far at all especially with a 15. I would consider a separate powered sub if i were you.

Wattage is not everything my friends, there are other factors, but if you can suggest a set up for total being around 170 that would fit my description that would be nice, correct me if i am wrong but isn't that 70watts rms? therefor plenty of power? if i am wrong i found another amp that is 50watts rms for the same price.

Sorry, that response was not necessary, and was a bit harsh, my bad.

what i meant to say is that i would never be able to find two amps, a sub, an enclosure, and speakers for under 170 not to mention i don't have enough room for all that, i have found a few older Technics speakers that fit my bill for good and cheap but lately i cant find them,

Just keep your eye open on craigslist or maybe ebay, although shipping won't be cheap.
