Here's the situation I ordered a Denon AVR3312CI AVR, it will arrive soon. The room is about 14' x 24' I would like floor standing fronts (with built-in subs, if possible) Rear sats need to be small, wall mountable. I've got $2000 ~ $2500 to spend. I'm wondering how to best mix and match... It seems any "set" either has to big sats or too small fronts. Usage is about 50/50 music/movies

5.1 or 7.1? Do you "not" want a separate actual subwoofer? And how "small" do you need the rears? http://www.orbaudio.com/

5.1 is all I can do. With floor standing fronts a separate sub creates a space issue. How small for the rears..... Well, the Orb's you linked to would work..size wise. I guess the question is how do you mix and match? For instance, Fluance SV10's would work up front. The Orb's would work for the rear. How do you know they would work together?

"How do you know they would work together?" Buy em and see if you like how it sounds. Although, at your budget, Fluance is Walmart quality... If you want a "innard powered subwoofer"...Def Tech is just about all there is. The new 8020/40/60 or the prior version the 7006(which are only $330 a piece on Amazon) And how do you have space issues in a 14x24 room? You have 24 feet of wall to place a sub.

By the way, Fluance calling the 8" driver in the SV10 a "subwoofer" is a blatant lie. It is NOT, and never will be, a "subwoofer" when crossed over at 800hz.

Well...corner fireplace, sliding patio door, hallway entry, kitchen entry, front door....etc. It's a good sized room with limited furniture placement options.....Poor design.... I'll look into Def Tech....

Just using that as an example...Not speaking of quality or performance....

Fluance is also the only company that uses the term "audio grade MDF" This... "Bi-amp/bi-wire 5-way gold plated binding post terminals for optimum conductivity" Is pure BS.

Do you want "small", or will simply "flat" work? http://www.amazon.co...=definitive xtr

My understanding of MDF is it's very reflective of upper audio frequencies, not so much in the lower end. Not good without proper insulation. As I said, an example of size restraints only...

Thanks for the link to def Tech.... Looking at the BP-8020ST setup, it just might fit the bill....
