    I can't sell both I need a pair of speakers to hear sound. I only have two pairs of speakers now and I need to keep the best out of the two and sell the one that is not as good. I need everyone to please research on these two speakers carefully and tell me which out of the two is the best overall speaker.

    How about you tell us, which pair sounds better to you? Keep that pair.

    If you're planning on selling both eventually to upgrade then what does it really matter? You'll get roughly the same money for either pair on eBay if they do sell.

    Well I wanted to know the general feedbacks of the two speakers. Example: Someone might say the JBL HLS410 is a better speaker since it uses a horn and it can have a lower crossover point to blend the music better and the woofers is better quality and materal then the Control 1Xtreme. By the way that part where I said having lower crossover point is true fact about the HLS410.

    you want general feedback? OK, here goes.

    So, all this agonizing over specs and you stil ldon't know what you like? Yeah, you're cool. Wotta waste of time.

    IMNSHO, you're asking us to choose which we would rather eat. Bull dung or cow dung. I'd choose neither. Get rid of both of 'em.

    But hey, we're not gonna be eating it so it behooves you to choose whichever you prefer.

    Be a man. Make your own decision and go with it.

    ...or ask Adam. Maybe you'll take his advice.

    This is the advice you would get if anyone else were to ask it: listen and decide for yourself.

    I have two cheeseburgers. I'd like to sell one. Which one do you think I should sell? The one in my left hand is thicker by 2.5mm and has pickles and mustard, but the one on the right is 1.7 inches wider and has mayo and catsup (or ketchup). If you were me, which one would you sell on Ebay and for how much?

    Sorry Spanky. It was too funny not to say. But really. Forget the specs man. Which ones do you like better? No one here is qualified to tell you what sounds better to you. If you sat us all down in a room with these things, half of us would pick one set and the other half would pick the other. And we'd all have reasons why, but none of them would matter. All that matters is, do you like mayo or mustard with that. Speakers are the same way. People will like what they like. What do you like?

    Well one is at 104 degrees Fahrenheit and the other is at 40 degrees Celsius. Which one is hotter?

    These threads are like scabs--the more you pick at them, the worse they get.

    SVI, I'd sell the one that will get the most money on ebay. If you're going to upgrade, the more money you have to do so the better. If you can't tell which one sounds better to you, then for your listening purposes, it doesn't matter which you sell. Sell the one that costed more; presumably that one will get more on ebay.

    Spanky, go to a hifi store, pick out some speakers you like, get a price, then go home, sell both speakers for the amount of money you need and then go buy the new pair you like.

    (BTW, best buy is NOT a hifi store...)

    Oh, I was actually suggesting that Spanky (I can't believe I just typed that) sell both and buy decent used speakers with the money. Or better yet, save for a bit and then make a purchase. Should be able find something good easily. In the meantime I'm sure he has a boombox or something to go on. Probably could even find something in a garage sale for $10 to keep em going.


    Gm I suggest to throw those burgers away and move on to steak

    !

    sell both, buy better (read: real) speakers instead,
    don't just buy something.

    ask us which ones, and then buy that ones we said you to buy (or go listen to the ones we suggested), nothing else!

    and remember that thing I said in my previous post? Try saving sometime...
    save now,
    look for better speakers in the meanwhile (keep saving money too...)
    and when you saved enough, sell all your speakers and buy new ones with the money you saved and the money you made by selling the speakers...

    until then,
    leave.


    Keep them spinning,
    Bert.

    I think you should try these: http://www.av123.com/products_produc...s&product=82.1

    Get mom to let you use her credit card. If you don't like these, you can send them back at no charge (within the 30 days). They'll even give you (her) the freight back. If you like them, you'll have time to sell both sets that you have now and give mom the money before her CC bill comes in the mail.

    While you are at it, here is a nice Integrated Amp to save up for. http://www.av123.com/products_produc...s&product=20.1

    Since you have both pairs of them...if you have a speaker A/B switch on what-ever-it-is you use as an amp, hook both pairs up, play your source, switch between the two pairs of speakers...lissen real good...for a lo-o-o-o-ng time...does one pair sound better than the other?...sell the one that doesn't sound so good...

    I donít know how to answer this, but in the last 18 years now that I have been using the JBL control series 5 and more recently since last year the JBL control 1 which are made up in multiples that go around the room in a hoarse shoe configuration as well as have a few attached to the ceiling and when balanced aligned and calibrated they deliver a truly moving surround for films.

    And granted I only paid around £249. 95p not all at the same time but over the coarse of the summertime of 2006, where a total of x10 have been installed so far with a around x14 more or so to go!
