When I was loading the truck to move, I retired my Zenith Allegro 3000's that were probably older than I am. They served a good long life and while they still sounded pretty good, they would pop on low bass notes at high volumes and I was tired of toting those big bastards around. I remember a friend having some Bose (I think maybe 2.2?) back in the mid 90's that sounded awesome. They were just the bookshelve speakers so they were small. I'm looking for something similar so that they are unobtrusive, unlike my old Zenith's. Bose now has the 201 and the 301. I want to stay in this price range, but get the best I can. I would definately take used ones as long as they haven't been driven like a rental car. Anyone have suggestions for a small but hard hitting speaker in a decent range? I'm not stuck on Bose, will consider anything.
