I have a pair of Bose 501 V tower speakers that sound great. Very balanced. Almost sounds like the band's in the room, just not as loud. A few points to talk about: 1) Do you prefer 2 or 3 way systems, and why? 2) Do you think smaller* is better, and why? 3) Floor standing or bookshelf? 4) Pros and cons of sub-woofers. Which speakers do you have/want/recommend? I'm happy with the speakers I have, but, I always like to hear about new or different speakers on the market. Let's try to keep the conversation just to speakers to keep it simple. All comments welcome. Mike * I read in an audio magazine that if a speaker system is too big for the cubic feet of a particular room, it won't sound as good as the same room with a smaller system. I believe they were refering to the physical size of the speaker.
