    Bookshelf Speakers Budget 300, Need Some Advice.

    Hi, I am looking to upgrade from my (slightly out of date now) Kef Cresta 2. Are house is a new style house so in my bedroom i have two dry lined walls which my speakers, amp, and PJ screen is on. Now am looking for something forward facing ports to stop the booming from the wall. I listen to all sorts of music really, From Coldplay to hardcore metal stuff and everything in between. So am looking for something thats going to have deep base and a good midrange at lowish volume levels. My budget is TOP LINE 300! as am skint at the mo.

    I have been looking at the Mission M32i and the Kef iQ1's

    BTW driving them is a Teac AH300.

    Thanks

    Luke

    My advice is demo a few and see what works best for you. Everyone on here can rattle off make, model, and serial number, but that isn't going to amount to a whole lot since we aren't the ones that are going to have to listen to it, pay for it, or appreciate it.

    But if you're in the UK, you've got a lot of choice in speakers in that range I believe. I'd check out models from Quad, Monitor Audio, Wharfdale, for a start.

    I would recommend that you take a look at Monitor Audio's Bronze series. I have the B2's and have been very satisfied with them. They are front-ported, have 42 hz extension on the bottom end, smooth treble, and a gorgeous mid-range. I paid $300 per pair at DMC Electronics.

    Definitely worth an audition. Good luck!

    I understand i should go and listen to them, But am just asking what are decent speakers for around 300 or ($600) top of my price range. Then from there i can go and listen to them at my local Hi Fi places. My main thing is front port speakers to stop the booming.
