From the numerous post I've read the best way to run your front speakers is to set them to small for home theatre, then why would anyone want to buy tower speakers if you are not going to use the full range of the tower. It seems the way to go would either be with satelites or bookshelf speakers. I was thinking of upgrading from my Super Duper Bose system (he says sarcastically) to the either the Mirage OM-9 or their new Omniseries bookshelfs. There is about a $500 difference between the two. What do you guys think. Thanks.
