    Really interested in sticking with the Paradigm line of speakers - local dealer has the PDR8v3 on special right now.

    For the size of room could I expect to be happy with it matched with Titan's on the front and osmething comparable at the rear?

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    I would at least move to the PDR10, but in the price range, you might as well look at the new SVS PB-10...(if duties to not raise the cost too much). That is not a huge room, but if you get a decent sub now, you won't have to reconsider that portion of your system for a lot longer.

    Thanks John - unfortunately my experience with Duties/Shipping is that it makes just about any head-to-head match up for heavy expensive equipment look pretty ugly.

    I'll just have to work on the WAF to try and clear another $100 in the budget to get the 10...
