I got them from a Fry’s Electronics in Anaheim, CA. I bought them around two months ago, so it might have been a deal they had going on at the time. I did a quick search and the cheapest I could find was $78 from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/JBL-Loft-Bookshelf-Speakers-Pair/dp/B00DKPJSIM
I would definitely get a pair if I were you though. I’m very impressed.

Good choice on the receiver. I’d really suggest staying away from vintage speakers that old. It’s kind of like buying an old victorian house. Really cool until you find out all the money you have to dump into it. The only time I buy vintage speakers are when I find the dirt cheap AND they were high-end back in the day. Just my 2 cents but all of these are good bookshelf speaker options from $50-100 a pair (I personally like the Pioneer’s best but they’re all good budget speaker). You’ll need speaker stands too ($40 plus) and might need to add a sub down the road if you want more bass ($100 plus).

The other option is to bite the bullet again and get these tower speakers that are one of my personal favorites. It’s less likely you’ll need a sub and obviously won’t have to by stands if you go this route.

Audio Setup Help!

Hey guys, so here’s what I currently own, I was wondering if you guys could give me some guidance on what else I need, and what wires If I need to buy any more.

-JBL Loft 40 speakers: http://www.amazon.com/JBL-Loft-Bookshelf-Speakers-Pair/dp/B00DKPJSIM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438290523&sr=8-1&keywords=jbl+loft+40

I have this subwoofer:http://www.amazon.com/JBL-ES250PBK-High-Performance-12-Inch-Subwoofer/dp/B00166ZFSO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438290018&sr=8-1&keywords=jbl+sub

and Lastly, I think I’m gonna have to buy this amplifier since its the cheapest: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049P6OTI/ref=s9_simh_gw_p422_d0_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1&pf_rd_r=11APB1Z0RH4P6SETQHVT&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=2079475242&pf_rd_i=desktop

So my question to you guys is, what wires will I need to connec the speakers and the subwoofer to the amplifier? Is this even a possible setup?
