The WAF has been beaten and she is now allowing me to get tower speakers. She was going to make me use bookshelves on the mantel and I was going to use the SVS system. That being said...I think I would like to go with the PSB Image T55; would anyone steer me in a different direction? This will be used in conjunction with the SVS PB12-Plus/2 , Image center and some cheap Sonys for surround sound(for now) My budget for mains is right around $1000. The room is ~9000 cubic feet.
