Which speaker for 30 watts amplification at $1000?
I like the look, size and price of the following speakers and am considering to match with my Pas XA30.5. I am looking for speakers that are easy to drive, have no front grill mounting holes, are relatively short (38" or less), have small footprint and have nice wood finishes all for in and around $1000 new or used.

A used pair of Proac Response twos perhaps? Many rockers enjoy the ballsy capabilities of a used pair of Response twos. They are definitely not 'prissy' high-end speakers and would likely respond well to the Pass.
