    Are those ratings in RMS? What's the Ohm rating on the speakers?

    I would follow Scott FX advice. The Elemtanal Design Stuff works great. And the Price is outstanding.

    Contradicting request - "trying to build a decent system on the cheap". How about "a cheap system on the cheap" or "a decent system on the decent $"? Both units look to have some pretty inflated specs. Either should suit your needs but since you're already started with Pyramid speakers might as well continue with same manufacturer. I've never used either. The bottom line is that you usually get what you pay for - usually.

    Thanks Scott. It seems that 3.5" speaker grilles are even rarer to find than the 4" ones.
