Sony B3000 + TA2020 T-amp VS AV 40 Monitors

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Title pretty much says it all. I have a relatively cheap active polk sub, and splitters for each AV channel to supply both the subwoofer and an amp/monitors. Bear in mind I like to listen to music LOUD, and use the speakers for little house parties, so im not sure how the little t-amp will perform. Regardless, which one do you guys think will have better sound quality?

TL;DR Should I get the T-amp and Sony b3000 setup, or just get some av40's. I have a subwoofer so bass response shouldn't be a concern. 

Subwoofer I have:

Which setup would provide superior sound quality? 

If you know of a good alternative in my price range, do suggest something!

Thanks guys!

Actually i had made a T-Amp/speaker sharing thread and peeps around the world feedbacked a cheapo Dayton B-652/TA2020 already trumps an AV40 at a far lower price. However for loud parties i would suggest a nice beefy entry level stereo amp like the Sherwood RX-4105?

Sadly I don't have the cash to shell out for a 100 dollar receiver atm, 120 total is my limit, but thanks for the recommendation!

However, wow do the B652 compare to the  Sony B1000? Which, in your opinion, has superior sound? Is one driven easier by the t-amp I'm looking into?

The B652s are less efficient but i would stick to those B3000s hehe For the $$ well built and decent sound

I found some Polk Monitor30's for the same price as the b3000. Should I go with those instead?
