Is this a good system? I know the sub should probably upgraded, but are those speakers even big enough to sound good? The combo is currently $270 or $260 after tax with a %10 off coupon I keep getting in the email. Opinions anyone? Thanks
Onkyo receivers are good, but their speakers aren't. In fact, stay away from instant "home theater in a box" setups entirely.
