Look for a pair of old Infinity RS-V's, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Under 12G's tho might be tough. You may also have to reinforce your subflooring too. ](*,) ](*,)

You should come to my deck. =D>
I suspect many/most here don't have 12G speakers.

Still, some "pretty sweet shit" is being played around Carver Country tonight. =D>

Apogee Centaur Majors sound awesome- especially if you have a small clean sub for 40Hz and below in the mix....they can be had for 1000 to 1500 used. Check Audiogon. For that matter almost any of the big Apogee's sound great if your budget is 6K! Most of the large carver amps drive them with ease. The Sunfire does an outstanding job- did for me for @ 20 yrs! :D :D :D

BIG tube amps sound even more wonderful!

Chauss, how far away are you from Atlanta?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I am in Roswell- about 26 miles if you go up 400N off 85 out of town.
