As the title says, I am looking to demo some new speakers. Budget,4K +/- a few £££, must be not bass shy, as I play a lot of organ music and have a rel S8/12 for really low stuff. Thought of PMC and other TL led designs in that range. The speakers that they are replacing are a pair of Amphion Argon 3LS models. Any thoughts? ( I know it will be down to MY ears at the end of the day)

Some nice Auidonote ones in the classifieds - although I imagine you are looking for new with that budget.

A great speaker that often gets over looked are the Audiovector. They are an interesting design because you can upgrade the crossover and tweeter without changing the speakers.

mmmm to beat a pair of amphion 3ls is going to take a lot of work good luck in finding something . a pair of tannoy arden legacy would DEFO beat them for organ music . exceptional with organ . even my tannoy eaton legacy made a organ master very happy indeed . [ he plays organ all over the place ]

the legacy range are adjustable . [ as you may know i have recently had the 3s on demo]

As I am disabled mobility wise, getting new just means I can get them local, and have them located and wired up
Drop Fanthorpes a line. They might be able to bring a couple of pairs to try next time they're in your area. They have a decent selection in your price range.

What are you hoping to improve?

What amp are you using?

I have been told the 3LS will be hard to beat, and the ist price for them now means probably having to re think the budget

mmm lovely monoblocks !! they would go well with the tannoy ardens !! but i would still stick with the superb amphion 3ls ! personally
I must admit they will take some beating, if thats the case, it maybe a case of looking at the bigger brother, the 7LS

Is it worth looking more at sub setup/positioning (and maybe how to use your Anthem's active crossover/room correction), if you're needing to turn the sub off for some listening and feeling that your speakers don't go low enough? I have the sub in my much more modest systems on for everything from spoken word and acapella singing (with minimal audible deep bass) to grime, and at all volumes. You've got a lovely sub and speakers - and if you're having to turn the sub off for some listening, you might think about how you can tweak the setup before replacing the speakers. Please ignore if you've already tried all of this, though!

I offered up my Amphion Xenons which are pretty much Argons with 8" woofers on the side, but the logistics are difficult.
