    Re: $700 for speaker!!

    i say try some boston Pros, retail for 600, ebay for 300, or the SPZ's for like a 1000, but the pros are a way better value

    Pros get very loud and still sound clear, ive had 2 sets now and love them

    bi amping means you can use 2 amplifiers or 2 channels per set of speakers.

    its similar to going active

    Save a little more $ and go for the rainbow power line cs 275's. Only downside is that you'll have to mount the gloriously awesome 5.5' deep woofers...
