    I'm thinking of getting a pair of JBL LX2005, a pair of LX2003 and a LX2000C as a surround system, anyone have any opinions on these? also, what would be a good sub to go with these?

    I heard them a while ago at Futurehome in Wokingham and the sound that you get is awesome!! I have a Harman/Kardon 5500 av receiver which is what they demonstrated them on. They are ex-dem for £495. I'm not sure if I need a sub or not though as the fronts go down to 35Hz

    I have never heard of them before and had a hard time finding out anything about them from UK sites on the internet. JBL used to be one one the big names in the fledgling AV market in the mid nineties but seem to have disappeared from view in recent years.

    The futurehome website quotes a frequency response of 35Hz-22kHz for the floorstanders which is a meaningless figure on it's own.

    I would doubt whether there would be much good bass response at 35Hz and you would probably benefit from a subwoofer. I know that I did when I used to have big Tannoy floorstanders.

    I will probably get a sub to go with them then. Should i then set the front speakers to small or leave them large as they are full range?

    As always try both ways and see what sounds best but it should sound better set to small as a decent dedicated subwoofer will always reproduce upper bass better than speakers in this price range.

    Thanks for the advice. I will buy them tomorrow and order a sub as well.
