I'm listening mostly to house and hip-hop music and I appreciate a little more bassIMHO you’re looking at the wrong speakers. Share your budget and you’ll get several recommendations for speakers that better fit that genre. Again, just my opinion but I’m familiar with several versions of the 804s and there are other speakers that are much better suited to give you more of what you’re looking for. Or not.
Not to be rude but if you listen to house and hip hop you should skip these speakers all together. They simply don’t have deep or good textured bass. I owned the 703s which is a lower tear of the 804 and was amazing how much better other brands were when I really started demoing.
You could make them work with subs but there are better options out there. Sorry I don’t have a good recommendation but I know B&W is not it. They are bright thin sounding speakers.
OK guys, so I ended up purchasing the 804s ... and I will pair them with some 805s, an HTM3 and an Outlaw LFM-1 sub for a 5.1 system.
The truth is that besides music, this will also be used as my home theater and I think the sub will compensate more than enough for the bass. But it is left to be seen.
I really appreciate everyone’s feedback and thanks for the link to the explanation on what are the differences between 804n and 804s.
