+1 to the Dayton sub recommendation too. SUB1000 or SUB1200 is where I'd go. Avoid the low end Polk sub, its no better than the Dayton SUB800.

What do you think of the BIC F12 sub? It's $200 shipped on NewEgg. Most people on AVS have recommended it over the equivalent Dayton.

The F12 or the Polk PSW505 are both solid options and very good at the $200 price point. The Daytons are half the price at $100.

I have the Lepai amp and heard hum? (noise anyway) with the Pioneer SP-BR41 LR using the stock power supply (2 Amp) and playing as loud as I like(some hearing loss though). Switched to the Dayton speakers and stronger power supply, much easier to drive speakers, go as loud as I like.
Then tried the Pioneer's with the better power supply, which became fine.
I tried an old notebook power supply with the Lepai and still got hum. A cheap Computer Monitor power brick, however removed the noise. 12 volt 6 amp. Fewer of these appear available on Amazon, and I do not see the one I paid $8 for.

I have a pair of T-15s in a box I used them with my SMSL T-amp for awhile (got mine for $50 on sale...) they are ok..but the Pioneer's suggested are going to be better or the Monitor series of Polks I also had a pair of Monitor 30's hooked up for awhile they definitely sounded better than the T15's


newegg has teh BS41's for $80~ (right now at least) these would be much better than the T15's

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117406



however here is my desk with some of my used speakers finds I have $80 spent (well +15~ish on surround repair kit for one of the sets) on buying all these speakers total... so used speakers I really my preference
(Monitor Audio Silver S1, NHT SuperZero, Optimus Pro-X5, Realistic Minimus 77's) ($11.25, $50, $10, $10 cost for speakers respectively)

(in fairness the DCM Timeframes not on desk (corner) cost another $20 (amazing speakers btw)

I also just bought some mini advents i just bought for $5 (spent another $15~ buying a surround kit for these ..sound very very good).


The MA's only cost $11.25 because they looked like heck when I got them



and while I was working on them:


of course used depends on luck / leg work and research and finding something in a condition you can live with ... so not for everyone certainly but a good way to get nice speakers for little money if thing go well

(also pictured in teh before shot of the MA Silver's :: JBL L1's $40 // Kilpsch KG2.5's $50 and Bang & Olufsen RL60.2's $60)
