passive speakers for 100 usd (used or new is accepted as long as they are not beat up)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I am going to buy a Stereo receiver for use with some bookshelf speakers. i only need them to push 100 watts as my room is not all that huge.

 

I found a few speakers that look promising near the price range but i need a professional opinion.

I prefer a bright-ish sound but not a grado level of brightness. i also like a tight and clean bass and just enough to make it punchy but not overemphasized. basically a speaker version of the Beyerdynamic DT990 Premium (for less of course).

 

Also as a side question, will the sound be changed by laying them on their sides instead of standing them up?

 

Thanks in advance for the people who try to help.

Well for used : are u in the USA and if so check out the Craiglist in your state? Among those mentioned the Sonys and BIC have the best low end but for a less than big room 100 wpc is actually over kill as peeps have done far less with efficient speakers mated with lower powered amp ^^

I own the Polk Monitor 30's and I love them! Very clear and a great price for what you get. They also look very nice and are built very well.

i agree it is a bit overkill, but the amp/receiver i'm getting pushes 100 wpc @ 8ohms so i dont want to blow the speakers because my choice amp is too powerful.

also, no craigslist for me. I've been screwed over way too many times to trust it. And between the sony and the bic, what has the cleanest, tightest bass?

i have absolutely no hifi shops here in north texas. The closest thing i can find to a hifi shop is a guitar center (no passive monitors there) around 45 minutes away. there might be a hifi shop somewhere but i have yet to find something beyond a car audio store.
