    I have some klipsch rf-82ii speakers and I don't know if I want to keep the or not...They are ok, but I am thinking i might should of went with polk rti-a7 or the rti-a9...I have around $1500 to spend on speakers and feel i could have chosen better i did...I have a denon avr -x2100 coming to hook them to, but still so unsure about the whole wet up...I had a cheap Yamaha r-n301 hooked to them and blew a horn the first day. I am only interested in listening to music with this system so any advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED

    your beating yourself up. Listen to as many speakers as possible with music you know, or simple music ie piano and vocals to decide. after that you can choose the right power source

    edit: the blown driver was either a fluke, failed driver, or failed part. the chances of you blowing the driver without you hearing the failure as it happened is slim to none

    let me back up and start with this post

    "that doesn't tell me much and where I live there is no place to go auditon speakers.....!!!"

    how would we know that?

    if it were that easy I would not be asking questions on here,,,......

    speakers sound is subjective, but advice based on information can be given

    if "you" were going to spend $1500 on a pair of tower speakers for a 2600 cu.ft. room and be using a denon avr-x4100(125 watts RMS) which ones would you go with

    one of the two i posted, with favor going to the phils

    waits for the troll to reply

    If your limited to that vendor those and the http://www.crutchfield.com/p_091C716W/Focal-Chorus-716-Walnut.html?tp=185 would be my only two choices. The MAs will go a little lower but I found the midrange to be sightly bloated. If you dont mind me asking, why are you limited to that vendor?

    The Focals , followed by the MAs for towers in your budget. In the polk line the LSi series are the only ones most seasoned listeners would choose, and if not opposed to bookshelves These are nice. What type of music do you listen to?
