Klipsch RB 81. $280 at Amazon (delivered). Much closer to full range with the 8" woofer and still efficient. Not a huge klipsch fan but these are a great value. I would also consider the ELAC B6 for more accuracy but less volume - same price. Yamaha R-S300 Receiver. Clean look, good sound, simple controls. Variable loudness is a huge bonus. $280 at Amazon. Onkyo CD player. Probably overkill at $150 for this system, but not crazy about portables etc. Polk PSW 505 Subwoofer. $220 at Amazon. Not the most musical but digs quite deep. Don't have the budget for an HSU so this will have to do. The Klipsch will go low enough that this sub won't have to do too much - crossover in the 60 hz rage. Total $930. $70 covers tax a few interconnects and some 14 gauge copper speaker wire. System will be quite loud, fairly accurate and will basically cover every frequency that can be heard. Will be solid to about 25 hz, but you mostly feel (not hear) notes in that range.
