Of course this goes without saying, but 5.1 and 7.1 setups are to be absolutely avoided in this price range.
I concur with this but the swans are good though, also you be from head-fi!

You have access to an old receiver?

The polk RM6750s are actually pretty nice. The mids are okay, but I haven't really been able to fully test thme out that much. Highs and lows are excellent.

if you can go overbudget, here is a receiver thats on sale. I have no idea if it is good or not.

Guys, have you read the description of what he wants? M10's wouldn't fit, best he can do is two monitors and a sub.

LingLing, i'm surprised you're not recommending the M50W, it might fit what he wants a fair bit more, and would cost the same as two monitors and a sub.

But yea, at $200, an "upgrade" would be gradual, first with monitors then with a sub, but of course, you'll be without that rumbling low end for a while.

Aka, it might be best to wait, or if you're willing to sacrifice the low end altogether, go for M10's, if you're willing to sacrifice the low end for the short term, go get some used speakers and wait on a sub.

If one's willing to sacrifice the low end he should get the av40s.

He should skip to the D1080MkII08's or Audioengine A2'd if you want to go at it xD, but considering budget restraints and how quickly you'll want to get a sub in there...yea AV40 sounds right

ok, for an over view, i am planing on ordering a new case, a better CPU cooler, and these swan speakers for my sumer overhaul, it comes to about 350usd which is about what i was planing.

if i make the same amount i did last summer i will still have about 250usd left over. is there a good sub that falls with in that range i could look in to?

There's a BIC F12 on sale on amazon right now for liek 140, i like the dayton subs myself.
post #20 of 24
For $250 you have a tons of decent subs for that price. The Lava 10" sub, Emotiva, Bic PL-200 dips down to ~$250 every so often.
