Advice on Speaker Selection

Hello, first time user here. I am looking to upgrade my current speakers and want some advice. My current setup:

Receiver: Yamaha RX-V373
Speakers: Sony SS-B3000
Sub: Polk Audio PSW110

So I want to upgrade my speakers first and was leaning toward the Wharfedale diamond 10.1. Im now leaning more towards the 10.2's now and was wondering if that would be a better choice or if its just overkill. Does anyone had any opinions/advice between the two? Im open to other speakers as well. Im hoping to keep the price at $500 or less. Thanks

I think the Wharfedale 10.2 speakers would be a huge improvement in sound quality over the Sony speakers you have. The 10.2 obviously has more bass extension and will sound better than the 10.1 in that respect. They are both really good speakers for the money.

The subwoofer you have is pretty limited in its output, so the 10.2 is what I would recommend. I am sure you will be very pleased with the improvement. be sure to set the subwoofer so it does not overlap too much with the main speakers. It should be set to only operate below 60 Hz (turn the knob on the filter all the way down).

A larger subwoofer with more power, like the PSW505 would be a good addition down the road in the future.
