The problem with that is I'm running fairly large old pioneers at the back and having to turn the volume louder would lead to the old rear pioneers overwhelming the Pioneer 21's.

The drawback is that they are HUGE! I had the itzy bitzy ones before, and they were not filling up the room, even with the volume set pretty high. These, using the same amp, fill up the room pretty nice. The sound is clear, and loud, without being boomy ot tinny.
But, because these are so big, I had to buy different wall/cieling mounts that can support over 10 lbs.

|BananaDealer||I picked up the bs21 version for my cafe that I own and its important that music sounds exceptional and so far it has done a fantastic job. I've even gotten a lot more customer's asking about my music lately since i've had the speakers, their that good. Definitely would pick this up!|

A couple of questions from a first timer
I would like to have better sound in my living room and my primary purpose is to listen to music (progressive house mostly) through my laptop/mp3 player and a little television. I am not interested in a 5 or 7 speaker setup, and do not plan on using a subwoofer (probably inviting a lot of complaints in my apartment building anyway). I have a very limited budget, but have found some options that I would like to ask someone knowledgeable.
1) If I go for a small amp such as http://www.amazon.com/LP-2020A-Le...pg__header , will it run any of the bookshelf speakers listed below at a good volume level? Also, between the ones listed below, any recommendations and why?
- Pioneer SP-BS41
- Polk Audio Monitor30 Series II 2 way bookshelf speakers
- Polk Audio Monitor40 Series II 2 way bookshelf speakers
Total cost of setup above is $25+[$85 - $150] = $110 - $175
2) In terms of sound, will there be a big difference if I instead decide to go with
- Energy EF-500
- Pioneer SP-FS51
- Polk Audio Monitor50 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker
Which do you recommend and why?
Will these speakers need a more powerful amp/receiver than the one I posted from amazon? If yes, how about something basic like a Pioneer VSX-521-K? I have found a used one for less than $100 on craigslist.
Total cost of setup above is $75+[$100-$160] = $175 - $235
Thanks for your time

Totally agree with you about the horn tweeters and other overly bright speakers.

|MIX MASTER ICE||BTW, I just recently sold my Energy EF-500's (rebadged Jamo)that I bought earlier this year from newegg for 100 bones. Those are back on sale for 100 and they sound really nice for the price. Better than the Pioneer FS51's.|

Dude, I've owned these Pioneer speakers and still own one of the centers. They are budget speakers and sound like it. Don't lecture me on what my own ears can hear.

I've owned the 60's, Acoustech HT-88's, BS-41s, FS-51s, JBL 130s & 190s, and soon the JTR Noesis. They were all running off a Denon 4311 with XT32. The 60's are the most distorted sounding out of all of them with bloated midbass, and cannot hold a candle to the more accurate 41s. They both get spanked in every which way by the JBL 190s... which I got for less than the price of the Monitor 60's during christmas last year. The only flaw of the 41s are a slight rolloff in higher frequencies. Each were measured by a Dayton OmniMic. How did you measure your Monitor 60 vs BS-41 again?
For $85, you could do a lot worse... like Polk's speaker lines under $300.
Funny how you call yourself Mix Master, but don't know a damn thing about good sound.
