    hey guys, first just wanna apologise for starting yet another spaeker related thread in the forum, I tried searching but since kef and b&w are such short brand names it wouldn't include them in the search.

    I'm looking for some new speakers around the 250 mark, so far I have found three contenders:

    QUAD 11L2

    http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/3226

    B&W 686

    http://www.hifigear.co.uk/site/scripts/product_browse.php?product_id=3129

    KEF IQ3

    http://www.froogle.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=KEF-IQ3-WAL


    Was wondering if anyone had any info on which pair would come out on top in terms of both clarity of sound, and also loudness. Any help would be greatly appreciated as my knowledge of speakers is very limited, as I unfortunately found out after I got home with my new intimidation studio one s-50s and found out they sound like your mixing underwater :(
