Recommend Bookshelf Speakers

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
my music taste are House, Trance and Techno. I like a crisp sound and tight, firm bass.

I had a $200 top budget and would like to keep it there unless...

so far I have been recommended
Energy RC-10 on ebay for $300
infinity P163s on sale for $170 a pair
Cambridge Audio S30 Speakers 219/pair at amazon

I am planning on getting stuff shipped to a shipping center near the border not sure if amazon will let me ..

any other suggestions? this is very tough!!!!

give no more thought and get any of the above?

on the side note : I went to Future shop (canadian BB) and listened to Energys CB20 ( I think they sounded dull ) and Polk RTi3 or something and these were really brightish and screechy but I bet these audio dep guys waste no time setting up their audio.

You can build better bookshelves than what your budget will allow. Go to parts-express, and do a little configuring. Well worth the effort. For $200, you can make some amazing sound.

I would mainly agree with you there, but in my experiance of building speakers it ends up being more then what I was expecting because I have to buy a couple of tools that are like $20 each and that adds up fast.

Op- look for speakers that have a minimum of 6.5" woofer and is ported. The speakers I built have a 5.25" woffer that is ported and I think it plays lows well, it still seems like it needs a little more.

Very best,
when i was looking for Active I was suggested passives and now the opposite... I was Initially going to buy a pair of KRK RP5 G2s but it seems like i am limited to the KRK 10S sub if I wanted more bass in the future according to people if I can add a $ 150-200 sub in the future to the RP5s then I will look no further

Look into my recent thread..

If you don't minded getting your hands dirty you could buy this kit as it is pretty nice. However there are a few mods that can make them sound a little better on the web.
