Also with a room that size I would suggest taking a look at the new upcoming 18" ported box Erich has coming out. And I might suggest looking into the Volts for surrounds. Erich also has some new high end 8" coax surrounds coming out.
You could absolutely build an entire system from what the Erich offers on his site that would sound awesome.
Is there anyone on here that has already heard all of the diysg offerings? Why go for the volts over alchemy's for surrounds ? I'm in the same boat as the op in that I'm looking to replace all my speakers with some DIY ones. How do the waveguide speakers hold up against for example: jtr's noesis line ? They look to be very similar in design... Or are the looks just deceiving ?
