AR Speakers

  1. I was looking into buying some bookshelf speakers for my home theatre. Since I'm on a budget I can't afford anything all that great.

    Has anyone had any experience with Accoustic Research? If so are they good or bad?

    Right now I have a JVC Home theatre that was bought about 2 years ago and it came with 2 Front, 1 Center, 2 Rear speakers. Can I replace the back 2 rear speakers with bookshelf speakers, or would it sound like crap? :X:

    Here's the Specs on the bookshelf speakers from AR

    I don't understand? Why would you put the new AR speakers in the rear?

  3. My Cats knocked down the rear speakers off the speakers stands and they broke :rofl:

    I wanted a sturdier heavier speaker by my couch that produces clearer bass. The website recommended these particular speakers for the rear.

    I wish they had them in silver, b/c that's basically the color of all my stero equiptment Tv, and Entertainment system
  4. All these Electronic experts and nobody can tell me if AR are decent speakers :fawk:

    They are decent speakers, but you should have a listen for yourself before buying. That way you can tell if you like it, and it won't really matter what we say. ;)

    they are a decent company, not really that bad at all. they used to be well recieved in the audio world, then lost their sparkle a little when they were bought out by recoton(jensen, road gear, advent, gameshark, periphrial, phase linear, etc).

    Well, what I would do is put the AR speakers in the front, and the crappy home theater in a box speakers in the back.
  8. Sounds good thanks!
