Hi All: I am planning to upgrade my home theater and want to start with the speakers. Your suggestions and advice regarding the speakers would be greatly appreciated. The family room doubles as the home theater and the dimension of this room is 13'x19'x10' (WxLxH). The room is open at the back to the breakfast nook (9' length) and the kitchen (15'length). I am interested in 5.1 system and my budget for speakers is $2000-$2500. I am open to either floorstanding or bookshelf speaker whichever is better for the hometheater experience. Here are some of my concerns: 1. Surround speakers can only be placed behind me. 2. Need to get the full movie impact at a normal listening volume (wife dislikes turning the volume up ) I have read some excellent reviews on Axiom, Paradigm (speakers), and Hsu-research (subwoofer) but do not know whether they would be a good choice for my room. Currently I have a very old Onkyo receiver with Dolby pro-logic to drive the speakers, but will upgrade that too once I decide on the speakers. Thanks in advance for your help.
