    I'm doing a little research for my father, and his setup dictates that the main speakers must be less than or equal to 6" wide. Now I know there are speakers like this out there, but it's hard to do a search based on dimensions. Could you guys help me out? Budget is to be determined on the available choices, so feel free to suggest anything.

    Thanks

    Canton CD 100

    Canton LE 207

    NOTE: The web page for the LE 207 states a width of 4.7". This is incorrect. It is suppose to be 5.7" (14.5 cm, which is what is listed on the web page).

    Check out: http://www.roleaudio.com
    Kayak (mini-monitor)
    Windjammer (floorstander)
    (Both are 5.5" wide, although the base on the Windjammer will make it somewhat wider where it contacts the floor)

    Also: http://www.nsmaudio.com
    (Parent company to Role Audio)
    Model 5 (mini-monitor)
    Model 10 (mini-monitor)
    (various versions of each model are available, all 5.5" wide)

    I have a pair of NSM Model 5SE -- "special edition" due to the use of upgraded capacitors (AudioCap Theta film & foil) and real wood veneer, which makes them essentially the same as the more expensive Role Audio Kayaks which use the exact same drivers. I doubt you will find another ultra-mini monitor that sounds as good -- incredible imaging; great mids; smooth, natural highs, and surprisingly good bass for such a small speaker. I use mine with a sealed sub in a 2.1 music-only system. I am told that the Role Audio Windjammer sounds very similar, but with the deeper bass you'd expect from it's larger, ported, floorstanding enclosure.
