    I am doing a 5.1 setup in my small room 12"X15". I Have an optoma hd72 on a 100 inch projection. I already have a 12 inch sub that rumbles perfectly. I am just looking for 4 component speaker and a center speaker. All are most likely going to be wall mounted. The center speaker HAS to be. This is all very new to me. I am looking for great sound quality (highs and mids) its a very small room so volume isnt the biggest concern but I would like to rock out occasionally. I was originally looking at the bose acoustimass and still are very interested in them. That is the style speaker I am looking for but maybe something a tad bigger for the center speaker for more mids? Thanks for any suggestions you guys give.

    You will find out soon that BOSE is laughed at here. I once knew someone that had these speakers and they sounded horrible!! I had to educated the poor lad in the finer things in life. But I still don't think he's got it yet, but you can lead a horse to water...!!

    I read on here a lot mostly just got the assumption they were overpriced.

    Never mind bose. Here are two possible candidates, that you could probably find at a brick and mortar store.

    Definitive Technology ProCinema80 Magnolia
    B&W M1 Possibly Meyer Emco

    I had a set of Polk RM-something speakers. I wouldn't recommend them, as getting them to work with a non Polk subwoofer proved to be something of a pain.

    I've heard good things about Orb Audio.

    They are certainly small if that is what you need. If you are able to go with a normal bookshelf sized speaker there are many options.

    You might also do a search for Mirage omnisat.

    A small wall mounted speaker thats puts out a very large soundfield.

    Contact one of the Moderators, they can probably change it for you.
