View Full Version : The Hertz Equivalence of Home Audio?

08-09-2011, 05:58 PM
I'm running Hertz MLK 165s in my car and I'm in LOVE with the sound, super smooth sounding, natural, clear, dynamic, everything

In my home theater room, I'm running AV123 ELT525 towers, center, and rears, and a SVS PB10-NSD sub. After getting the Hertz in my car, it immediately made me want to upgrade my home audio.

Can anyone tell me which companies or models would sound similar to the Hertz MLK 165s for home audio?

My budget is about $1000 for towers, $400 for a center, and will get rears later.

you'll have to audition them. your budget is a bit low considering you want enclosed speakers that compare to speakers that cost almost the same as non-enclosed speakers.

Listen to the Paradigm Monitor series. One of the best options in the sub-$1k category.

The MLK are very neutral, very revealing. It's almost creepy at first, but then you start to realize they aren't adding coloration. We're so used to listening to speakers that add to the original signal.
