    Default Bedroom Speakers


    I would finally like to get some speakers for my bedroom, just the center and the two main for now. Looking for bookshelves for the mains.

    Or I could get some dipoles for my main room and move the polks in the bedroom, still leaving me needing a center.

    Budget; I would like to be about $500 not including shipping.

    There is a local retailer/e-tailer offering these, which were always recommended by Loves2Watch and Simon(another member) has them in his system and indicated they were of excellent quality and performance.

    Yes the tweeter is in the middle of the mid range(where the dust cap is normally located. This is Kef's claim to fame.

    You should check these out as well.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ht_1531wt_1065

    with something like this.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Paradigm-Cinema-...ht_3210wt_1150

    I believe these would out perform the kef's, as wonderful as the kef's are I have to give the edge to the paradigm's I think L2W would agree. Oh and here is specs and pics of the cinema micro v.3 (now refereed to as the Micro Monitor's?)

    I might add that you will not get a factory warranty when buying paradigm's off ebay, but I highly doubt you would have any problems. I have been watching the fella that is selling the cinema micro v3. for a long time and he has sold a TON of them with lot's of happy customers.
