    Nice. For music you should be fine. They will produce a sufficient amount of bass. For movies your gonna want some kinda sub to handle to lower frequencies.

    Did you get the HK 1700 at BB when it was $199? Its a hell of a deal at that price.

    Welcome to Club Polk!

    As said above, you'll probably be OK for music but I'd, also, add a sub for HT then build the rest of the system from there. Add a CS2 (center channel) and hang some M-30s or M-40s around the sides and back. If you're on a budget roll over to newegg.com and see if you can get the Polk PSW 505 SUB on a sale! Or just wait for one!

    199 ain't bad for an entry level HK. Well worth it!

    Enjoy!

    If you have the cash on hand, newegg currently has the PSW 505 (which) would match up nicely with your system, for only 189.99 with free shipping:

    Something to consider?

    I was just reading a review on newegg on the PSW 505 and in one of the negative comments the guy said " the wife and the dog hate it, ( but they don't like anything fun.)" I thought that was funny. I just bought one of these for my main HT switching out a still breathing Klipsch 10" who just had his 18th birthday. The polk slams hard and both me and my dog love it.

    They should be fine. They're fairly efficient, and besides you CANNOT add an amp to an HK 1700 because it has NO pre-outs, so the question is not relevant.
