Update , So I spoke to the Pioneer dealership here and they do have the Andrew Jones speaker system here complete. They quoted me as below.

1) The Andrew Jones SP-PK52FS 5.1 system comprising of SP-FS52 floor standing speakers + SP-BS22 Rear Speakers + SP-C22 center channel+ S31W Subwoofer : Costs 443$

2) The Andrew Jones speakers SP-PK52FS minus the subwoofer i.e SP-FS52 floor standing speakers + SP-BS22 Rear Speakers + SP-C22 center channel : Costs 312$

3) Pioneer F31 Subwoofer : Costs 149$

4) Pioneer S-MS35W Subwoofer : Costs 184$

What do you guy's think about this ?

Why is it that you have to buy local? SVS ships for free...

Also, spending almost 50% of your budget on the AVR wasn't the best decision but if you're happy with it then that's cool.

As far as the speakers - the pioneers are fantastic.

I live in Kuwait. Do they ship it free here , actually do they ship at all here ?

Are the Pioneers better than the Polk Audi RTi's ?

I'm considering of buying only the subs online now. Thinking of BIC F12's , are these good ?

Can you suggest me other good subs in this price range ?

I am still amazed with spending all that money on a receiver, and then
looking at the lower budget friendly speakers and subs.

What sub brands are available in your area?

The Polk DSW Pro is not a bad option - and JBL does make some nice subs


Your call

Who or Where, is The Way, Truth and Life?

Speakers - MB Quart VS05, Boston VS260, Snell K7
Subwoofer - Mordaunt Short Aviano 7
Receiver - Tascam PAR-200, Pioneer VSX-30

Yeah just checked some reviews and it seems like a bad option to go for the BIC. Think I may just have to listen and decide from the 3 options I have between Andrew Jones Pioneer , Polk Audio RTi and the JBL studio series 1 , the subs are also from these brands only so among these I think the best are from Polk Audio only.

In future I can think about upgrading to something better.

The JBL Studio 150P subwoofer is a nice one - it was reviewed and measured good.
So if you buy the Studio 1 series - keep an eye out for it.

Also note - you do not really need to brand match subwoofers.

Yeah I read about that but my dealer only has the 140P and I didn't really like that one. I will go next week and see if they have the 150P.

Yeah I know , but the best sub I have seen so far are only the Polk Audio RTi's DSW Pro 660 i , nothing else here comes close to that ( yet ).

The 140P is just an 8" subwoofer

Polk is still a nice option for you, in your area.

Incase I decide to get the polk's ( which I might , most probably ) , is it advisable to get 2 DSW PRO 660i's ? Will I get better sound effects with 2 subs ?
