Currently i'm using crappy, small, logitec 2.1 speakers in my townhouse for house parties. These are not doing the job in the slightest. I was using my sony receiver(80w) to power some small sony speakers and an onkyo 10" powered subwoofer. The subwoofer fried and the speakers had no bass or midrange so I had to use my logitec speakers.
I want LOUD, decent quality audio with good bass that can fill a room that's about 23' by 15' and opens into a kitchen that's 13' by 9'. We have between 40 - 80 ish people that fill the rooms.
I'm not sure if I want to use a receiver or not. Also, not sure if my receiver is good enough for more powerful speakers.
I have been looking at the M-Audio BX5 D2
. From what I understand though, these are to be used in a studio with near field listening.
Would these word or should I go in a different direction? Tower speakers with a receiver? Any suggestions. I can add a subwoofer if necessary.
Looking to keep the entire setup around $300 or under. My house isn't going to be filled with a bunch of audiophiles, so they don't have to be perfect. Just loud, clear, and good bass.
Thanks for the help,
