    Default R40 Tower speakers

    Are the R40's a good option for a small starter home theater L&R speakers? I found a pair for $40, good condition. My dad is using a pioneer home theater in the box set up with tiny speakers and I thought these would be a good upgrade for him. I read a lot of reviews (old) and they seem like they are decent.

    thanks

    just be careful if you're going to hook those speakers up to the pio reciever, since its an HTiB receiver it may or may not work ok with outside speakers.

    There won't be other speakers involved... no surround or anything, this is just replacing the two small ones that came with it

    I just got them home... they are so much smaller than I thought they would be. They sound great though, I am sure my parents will like them. You just can't go wrong when you buy a pair of Polk speakers for $40. :)

    So I have had these hooked up since I got them yesterday (after a good cleaning), and they really sound good for the size of them.... my wife and I were trying to find a spot that we could put them and keep them for ourselves! No such luck though, I have to stick with book shelf speakers. I will be bringing the R40's over to my parents house today, hopefully they sound as good on their receiver as they do on mine.

    So I have realized that my T15's (these are my mains right now) are lacking in all areas after listening to these R40's. Any suggestions on a good full sounding bookshelf speaker that I should kep an eye out for? I am really limited on size though..... the T15's are cutting it pretty close to being too big. I know that really limits the options.

    Just got home from setting up the R40's at my parents house... they aren't too bad off of their pioneer receiver. I just ordered the CS1 from Newegg to go along with the R40's, I hope they will be a good enough match........ I couldn't pass up the $69 shipped price. I think it will be a good start for their audio, and only $115. They will need to get some funds together to replace the sub and the receiver, but this is a huge step in the right direction. :)
