Wow, brings back memories. Way way way back, long ago, I had a pair of V20s over V30s. Drive was DC300s. I am better now, thank you.

I used to use CV V35's in the 70's. Loved them back then. Not sure I would today.

Nah, I wouldn't like them today. Honky and no low bass. But that's what speakers sounded like back then.

Oh sorry Don. I use 2 Crown 3600's with DBX 2231 eq, Ashly XR1001 Crossover, Allen and heath Xone 23 DJ Mixer. Sonic R218 Subs and EV Eliminator i Tops.

Yes, just a separate simple 2-3 way speaker system with heavy bass for family use is what I am thinking with it's own amp/receiver and eq.

Thanks for all of those suggestions guys.

Mike I think you might really be surprised by some of the self-powered (active) 2-way speakers available now.  Some if these have "bass or deep" modes that do a pretty good job of making you think there are subs.  We use to have a 10" active set in its "deep mode" that we would demo sitting on top of the companion sub.  After a short demo, we would ask the customer if they would like to hear it with the sub connected.  Most were very surprised that the sub had not been on for the initial demo.  Of course the speakers DID sound better with sub on!
