    About 2 years ago my father bought a center channel. Its a boston micro 90c center channel. Well i think ive finally talked him into retiring the old bose speakers from the front and replacing them with some better mains and getting a real subwoofer. My question is does anyone know what bostons would be matched to this. HE would prefer towers but bookshelves may also work. I looked on bostons website but there wasnt really anything except packages in their microsystems, and i think these would be too small for the room

    Thanks for any help

    I'd try some of the Boston CR series speakers. However, the Micro 90c has a rather high -3db point -- 100Hz -- so you might want to get the smaller CR65 speakers and cross them over at 100Hz.

    Personally, I have Boston CR9s for the fronts, a CR2 for the center and CR6s for the surrounds and am pretty happy with the sound. I can guarantee that the all Boston system will sound better than the Bose!

    does anyone know if something like the vr 950 or vr 940s would work ok with them. I believe the tweeters are teh same size and the drivers are made of the same material.
