    I have a set of B&W FPM5 speakers in the front. I'm trying to find matching surround speakers without breaking my budget (4 FPM2's are too expensive).

    My requirements: small (B&W LM1 size or smaller), white or silver, and about $150 a piece.

    I could just go with the LM1's but would they timbre match well with the Kevlar cone based B&W speakers?

    Thanks in advance,

    thanks for the replay Dany. I'm actually not asking where I can purchase speakers in general, but which make/model speaker I should get.

    You always want the front 3 to match. Not as important for the rest although main fronts and same surrounds is always better for multi-channel audio,imo.

    Are you going to listen to SACD or DVD-A? Then you might want to think about timbre matching

    50% TV (PLIIx) and 50% Music (7-channel mode). No SACD or DVD-A. I'd like to timbre match regardless though, hence this thread. Thanks.
