I'm not sure what you listen to or your associated equipment but here are a few generic values. I will only quote you used as you will experience so much more pleasure buying a well treated pre-owned speaker. Here we go based on what is for sale right now on A'gon.
Usher CP-6371 (asking $1800, stretch & u wont be sorry)
Vandersteen 3a (asking $950, a good buy)
Vienna Acoustics Beethoven (asking $1800)
There are plenty of others but you could buy the Vandys, some decent cables and save some money. If you list your equipment, cables and musical preferences, more people will be able to help you. Good luck.
There are many very good tower speakers in the $1500 range. Especially if willing to buy used!
That said I'll take you a different path, try looking at Jim Salk's and Rick Craig's designs(salksound.com & selahaudio.com). Both use top-notch drivers, have furniture grade cabinets, and most importantly, both have a great ear for sound. I especially like Jim's 1801f, which may be a $100 over the above budget. Everybody is their own movie critic but I would put the 1801f against anything you can find in the store in the $3-4k price range.
Good luck in your hunt.
