    Slightly over budget and a bit of a mismatch, but how about - JBL and one of these?

    Anything PA will prob be compromised in the bottom end as the smaller 12+ horn or 15+horn are not much use below 60-70hz and usually partnered with subs.
    Buy these now. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tannoy-Sa...EAAOSw1iNbBSvY
    Plenty of bottom end for your room, great stereo and versatile enough for if your music tastes expand.
    And add a decent 100w/ch amp and you are good to go..

    No bass on those JBLs, they are for cinema use and need subwoofers

    If you want to do this on a shoestring, just get a pair of Wharfedale Dovedale III speakers and drive them with a Denon PMA-350SE amp. It'll work fine and give a decent enough sound with plenty of punchy bass. All second hand obviously and probably cost a total of no more than 150! And it'll be reliable.

    Oh, didn't realise that. Just saw the size of them and assumed wrong...

    I checked them out a couple of years ago, thought the same as you initially.

    Im no audiophile and apologies in advance if this makes me sound like a noob but Id like some speakers that are loud & bassy if possible and Id also prefer to purchase second hand.
    I have an Ion obelisk 3x and x-pak 1 and some absolutely beautiful pmc FB1s , all under budget and the active meridians too .

    And definitely under budget but won't do massive trouser flapping...

    If you're in the Midlands, not a massive trek to MK to see.

    There's one suggestion for you. Good luck in your quest...

    Could do a lot worse than go for that little set up. Should hold its value too.
