    Hello,

    I am on a budget and I need recommendations for center and surround speakers to match Infinity Beta 40 (front right and left). Here's what I am thinking:

    1. Center speaker

    Options - Beta C250, Beta C360 OR JBL Northridge EC35
    Price Range - $150-200
    Considerations: I am think of going with EC35. My first choice is really C360 but I don't think I will be able to convince my wife to fit that BIG unit in our living room. EC35 is also dicey (also pretty huge) but may be doable?! Size-wise, Beta C250 is probably the best option but since they cost same as EC35 I am leaning towards the 3-way speakers.

    Qs:
    1. Am I making the right choice?
    2. Will the tonal quality of EC35 (blk) match Beta40 (blk)?
    3. Is there a better speaker you would suggest in the same price range?

    2. Surround

    Options - JBL Northridge E20, Infinity Primus 150 OR ??
    Price Range - $80-100
    Considerations: I am thinking of staying away from Infinity Beta 20 (or 10) because of the price ($200+). Primus 150 has good reviews but not sure if I should go for E20s, specially if I pick EC35 for center?

    Qs:
    1. Am I making the right choice?
    2. Is there a better speaker you would suggest in the same price range?

    I have a fairly small room (12X15) and planning on getting a receiver HK AVR-240 (refurb,

    Having your front three speakers match is very important.
    Getting a center from the same model product line as your left and right is the correct choice.

    It is possible to get a center from another brand to match,but it is difficult to do,and many "experts" for go attempting it.
