    Fi Q's can be had for under $300, Audioque SDC and HDA series.... Incriminator Audio, Sound Splinter, DC Sound Labs, I mean it depends mostly on how you install it, I've heard <$100 subs sound pretty good....

    Best as has been stated so many times is completely subjective.

    Choose what strikes your fancy, it's really a flip of the coin.

    If Big Bangs are in the conversation I'll add the Lanzar Opti1232D's, they appear to be almost identical (BB212D), but the Lanzar is $50 cheaper.
