Biggest question is what amp are you using? What part of the country are you in?
For a grand, look around and see if you can find a nice used pair of Totem Model 1s. Unless you're running low wattage SETs, you will enjoy.
You may also want to think ahead, are you vehemently opposed to a Sub, or are you OK with one if it helps give you better results?
Lastly, what type of music do you tend to listen to? Lot's of heavy metal or Norwegian death metal? or are you a jazz fan? or is Opera and symphonies your groove?
