    I am going to upgrade the front L&R speakers of my JBL NSP1 set. im putting the two N24 speakers on the "b" speakers of the reciver, and putting them in another room. So now i need new fronts for my HT. Im still want to keep the N-Center for now, and i want to stick with bookshelfs to. I guess JBl would be the best brand to buy because all my other speakers are JBL(arnt all your speakers supposed to be the same company?). also i would like to have any ports on the speakers to be on the front not the back. any suggestions? Oh yeah, they each have to be able to work with 100 watts per chan. coming from my reciver.

    To maintain near 100% timbre-(voice)-match, you can get another JBL Northridge Series speaker like the ...

    NORTHRIDGE™ SERIES – N26II
    2-Way, 6-Inch Bookshelf Speaker
    [​IMG]

    ok, i just went down and measured and i only have 13 inches of hight to work with. bummer. i searched around JBL.com and it looks like the S36II will fit the best. would these work well with my other speakers? They say max power is 150 watts, will 100 watts to each of them be enough?
