    I've recently remodeled my theater and require smaller speakers for my fronts and center. Current speakers are a lighty used set of Klipsch References which are forsale here in the HW forum if anyone is looking!!

    I am currently using Klipsch RP5 towers (/w 12" integrated SUB) in the front and a KLF-C7 as my center.

    I need something small that can mount on the walls, i am building a stage and the towers take up way too much room.

    I was looking at the Definitive Technologies C/L/Rs, anyone have anything to say about these?

    Or any other suggestions??

    I also need 4 matching surrounds, was looking at the DT stuff there as well.

    Will probably bite the bullet and go with an SVS sub and hide it in the back somewhere. [​IMG]

    Will be driving the speakers with my Pioneer Elite VSX-49TXi.

    Would like to keep it around $1500 - $2000 but a little flexible there depending on the solution.

    Thanks for the help!

    For some small wall mounted speakers, I'd look up Jordan JX92s full range drivers in a small ported cabinet. These go down to like 55hz and provide good clean bass with clean audiophile quality sound.

    They sell them at

    They cost $140 per driver, plus the cost of prebuilt cabinets at a place like Partsexpress would be about $50 per cabinet. You could also add a simple crossover to them with only a single inductor and one resistor. total cost per speaker will be about $250ea and I think you'd easily get better sound quality than most commercial models in the same price range. The only drawback would be that you have to do a little building (sort of DIY related) and they are not meant to fill a large room with sound.

    Some Commercial Bookshelfs to consider:

    Polk LSI
    Energy Veritas
    Paradigm Studios
    JBL Studio series (S36 is a wallmount)
