you got a $1000+ budget?

Hybrid Audio has an awesome set of Legatia speakers for an amazing 3-way.
Dynaudio is amazing
Focal has nice Utopia 3-ways

Possibly if they sound that amazing! haha. Ive heard the Legatia's and Clarus and like the both. Have reallyyy been thinking about purchasing the legatia's but want to see what my other options are. Also HAT is coming out with new Special Edition L6's and L4's I might just wait and get those haha(:

Never heard dynaudio yet, want to just dont know anyone who sells or owns them here in az haha.

Focals are nice, only have heard K2ps tho.

Thanks for the good suggestions! imma keep them in mind(:

When spending that much money, buy something you can audition first, preferably on two different days. buy whatever you find and like. there are plenty of speaker choices that sound good - you really don't go wrong choosing one versus another. If you like HAT, go with it. If you like something else more - go with that.

Keep your installation in mind - including how off-axis each speaker is, and their locations.

Alright. Yah I'll look around and see what I can find locally. So far a lot of people have suggested hybrid, morel, focal, dyn, and rainbow so Ill check those out. I heard the hertz speakers auditioned the same day I heard the hybrid's and the hybrids had more detail...

Also, anybody like scan or peerless speakers? Ive only heard a little bit about these, and people seem to like them.

Dude, you have a processor. Why not go active and piece together individual components?

They make some of the best speakers out there (that's realistic, at least). Scan-speak Revelators and Illuminators = :drool:
