    I am looking for advice on a 5.1 speaker system for under $1300. I have a fairly large room (24 ft wide by 18 ft from TV to couch). I have been told that it would be necessary to use tower speakers for fronts because of the size of the room.

    I have looked at several models, and really enjoyed the Polk Audio monitor series, but a little pricey for the whole package. Other speakers I have considered are Paradigm, Klipsch, Boston Acoustics, and Acoustech (although I have never listened to those).

    Any advice would be appreciated. I am new to this "hobby". I do have a Pioneer Elite VSX-41 receiver, so I should have plenty of power to push any system.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    You could get a monitor system for your budget:

    Fronts Monitor 60 $400ish/pr
    Rears Monitor 30 $200/pr or Monitor 40 $300/pr
    Center CS1 $200
    Sub PSW12 $300

    For larger rooms I much prefer to do an affordable tower/bookshelf system than a sub/micro system for the same money.

    "The ceiling is regular height.. 8 ft."

    That's good. High ceiling could have complicated matters. If you have any questions on the Ascend packages, let me know.
