    The JBL SCS135 and SCS150 systems would probably sound at least as good as the Bose while costing only a small fraction as much.

    Energy Encore or Take 5.2. It sounds better than the AM-15 even the newer version of the AM-15.

    Thanks for all the responses.how about the jamo A310 series or canton or DFT for that matter?i am trying to narrow down my choices to three or four before going around to listen myself.
    the choices i have in mind right now are M&K,Anthony gallo,mirage omnisat.Mirage omnisat is slightly expensive for me as i want it keep it around $1200.
    Anybody have any idea on RBH?
    Does it come in the category of ceiling outside mount speakers?Since i spent $500 on doing prewiring for 2 front and 2 rear speakers,i am trying to buy a good system that will last a while.i am more of a videophile than an audiophile.[​IMG]

    For small cube like satellite speakers I would look into Def Tech procinema series, Energy take 5.2, Klipsch Quintets, and paradigm cinema series. All of these will wipe the floor with bose as bose doesn't even have a two way design in their mini "cube" speakers.
