    Yes, that is what the specifications say here:


    They are 60 pounds. Kind of a strange speaker I think?

    Yeah, you don't need anything fancy, just a short little speaker stand. Unfortunately, the ones I would recommend aren't sold at Best Buy any more, but just get something really short, 10" high, tops.

    Someone on another board is using a pair of kitchen step stools (those little children ones with four legs and no back) for which they paid US$12 at the grocery store, like this one (but not this one):

    Anybody heard these? I sent a PM to Cooper, but in case he doesn't get it, I'm looking to buy these today or tomorrow for my dad. The whole set is pretty tempting at $170. Paired with a VX-10, I think they might be pretty good, though I'm skeptical of plastic speakers...

    My $.02 worth.

    I have been impressed with the Harmon Kardon products - especially the seven channel surround and the capability to tailor. Plenty of power.

    If you like the looks of the JBLs (or don't care) you will not IMHO need a seperate sub (overkill?). Then the rest of the budget is for the four wall mounts. See opinions (above). I would say audtion a few and see what 'style' of speaker you like (horn/hard/soft tweeter, etc).

    The Bose may (dare i say it) actually do well as surround speakers. So. In your case - i would say big money reciever first - then see if the speakers need upgrade.

    Sorry, I wasn't specific. Anybody heard the Carver TS241 or TS 441 speaker set?
