Hi there -
I have a Sony STR-DH800 ( http://hometheatergears.com/sony/sony-str-dh800-review/
) and about a year ago, I installed temporary and very cheap Panasonic cubes at all 6 pts of my 7.1 system in my movie room. There is no doubt that at least some of these cubes are blown. I knew when I bought them that they wouldn't last.
I am totally inept at understanding how many watts each speaker should get or can take. I want the system to kick ass at high levels of sound without worrying that they will blow out. I mainly use the system for movie watching and am tired of having to adjust volume down in anticipation of action moments in a movie.
I'm not made of money, but can someone suggest a cube speaker to me that can handle what I need? I'm not averse to buying one speaker every 3-4 months at prices of $100-$150 each if I have to... I'm also looking for a new center and sub.
ANY SUGGESTIONS would help.
