I convinced my friend NOT to get Bose! He went down to a Circuit City where his girlfriend's brother works and had a listen to the Polk speakers and came home with a set of RTi-150's and a PSW-350! His girlfriend's brother got him a deal. The whole thing only ran him about 800 bucks. Only drawback is he is powering it with a 300 dollar Sony amplfier/reciever. I suppose I can't ask for much more right now but it's nice to know that I my part to convert one of the dark side's minions!
