Consider used Von Schweikert VR4 Gen III HSE. They handle up to 1000 wpc. They should sell right around $3000.

I've been really happy with my Klipsch RF-63's and I mainly listen too Rock/Classic Rock, Jazz and Blues.... I also use it with my home theatre system, match with the Klipsch RC-62 center, but I am in the process of upgrading to a newer AVR, either Integra DTR-9.9/or 8.9 or the DENON AVR-4310...
Thanks to all for your input. The idea of having several drives is perfect to handle all the power, problem is that the AV123 is way to big for my family room (not a dedicated Home Theater .... yet). I will start my research and aviability in the used market for all the speakers that you recomends me.
If someone have more options, please let me know.
A friend has his home theater in his two car garage. Using an HK receiver he powers Klipsch Cornwalls 20 feet away which cost him $600. A pair of subs behind his listening position provide the growl, and two sets of inexpensive surround speakers provide the ambiance. His setup actually sounds a real theater . In short - quality horns in a large room. Not high end audio, but high end PA system is the sound of a real theater!
GedLee Nathan 10 for $1100/speaker? new.
95dB/1W/1 meter. The pro-sound woofer will take 350W of pink noise with a 6dB crest factor and is rated for 700W on music. The compression driver will be fine at those output levels.
Sub-woofers are required. A shelving low-pass filter will help if you don't load them into half space.
