Especially when using under 20 watts of power, 20 watts isn't going to be bending too much 5/8 or 1/2 inch bookshelves they're small enough to need minimal bracing on the side panels.
Yes I know this. I use a FiQ18. Would never use pioneer, kicker etc though. Fi just makes great products. The box still vibrates slightly with the thickness I use. I would make it even thicker still and more bracing if I could re build it.

A experience DIY would know, yes you can make speakers and sub woofers with small walls and bracing. But if you are looking for a good sounding, high end, sub woofer or speaker, A heavily braced, and thick box is needed if cost is no issue.

I resent that my 15 inch cvr for HT use has superb sound quality, for movies that is.
For some reason I've found that the lower budget subs from high end companies usually work better for HT use.(the high end stuff is usually directed at SPL).
I also still prefer polypropylene and injected cones to just basic paper or pulp(Pulp still has it's place). They make for very lightweight sturdy cones.

Wish FI never came to be and RE stayed going >,<.
Your q should have great sound quality as well, there are always exceptions to stereo types (get it STEREO types? ).

Exactly you bought something that uses the same cheap drivers that a cheap longie would use just a little bigger. Packaged them with a cheap amp and use particle board for the cabs gave it a hifi logo and moved the decimal on the price. Then its down to the consumer how dosent know its bad till they hear something thats way better. That pc world link about the 7500 says one very big red flag about the system

lacks overall clarity
for 1400 you should be able to get that. Sony though the bait out and you took it hook line and sinker. Theres a lot of stuff out there in the sub $1000 range thats amazing this is not on that list.

Notice the 75lbs? and the size? So you still think that little thing can do nearly that? Do not fall for false ratings. Its more like under 50watts.
you forgot to mention that Sony makes complete garbage speakers which tissue flimsy excursion and slap names in your face like Kevlar woofers, thousands of watts, when in fact, they are just garbage.

and yeah, my 50 pound NAD T751 receiver only puts out 60 watts a channel, this dude is an idiot, lol.

Building it yourself could warrant a little extra money depending on what you get, but building your own also yields the best results usually.
8 inch drivers would be fine for low frequency reproduction however a 6.5 inch for highs would be a bit larger than what's needed unless you want the 8 inch drivers to act as subs.
Shoot more around the 3- 4 inch range.

sony sucks in the audio department except maybe their ES stuff. i started hating sony after i put a sony CD player in my car, it sounded like crap compared to a Pioneer deck that i had before. I actually have a emotiva XPA-3 and i know how heavy it is which is why i started laughing on the other page.
