    Greetings, I'm looking for a very small, (smaller the better) speaker to us as a center surround back. The speaker will sit on the back of my couch, because the couch is against the wall. Thanks Joe

    Joe, aren't you at all worried about the speaker pitching off the back of your sofa and onto the back of your head?

    Funny chuck [​IMG] I had to laugh myself at your reply. I can only imagine what you had a picture of. The speaker I'm looking for needs to be very small maybe 4x4x4. The back of my couch is lower than my head[​IMG]. Would a computer speaker work ? Thanks Joe

    May as well get two nice small Sats of some sort, and use them both, even on the one 6.1 channel, this has some advantages.

    The computer speaker probably will not handle the power of your HT receiver/amp very well, if some DTS-ES rec. engineer decides to really use the channel at reference type volumes....

    This is a little bigger than you need but it's only 5 1/2 inch deep. Besides if it's that close at least this would disperse the sounds. And you can purchase only one if you want/need.

    John and Mitch thanks for the reply. The Fluance speaker looks like a good one, but a little too big. Maybe I will buy two surround backs if I find a pair priced right. How about two small cubes anyone know of. My speakers currently were a christmas gift, Polk 6005s and polk sub, as a new HT person these sound great for my taste. Their good for movies but I think they come up short playing CDs and FM music,[​IMG] My new JVC 8030 rec. is wonderful as I've mentioned in another post. Love this site. Gotta go I'm watching the restored Wild Bunch. Thanks Joe
