After reading the helpful posts in the forum, I've narrowed my choices a little bit. However, I still don't know which set of speakers to buy. Here are my choices:

Energy Take Classic 5.1

Klipsch HD 500

Boston Acoustics speakers that come with the Denon DHT-591BA combo.

I also ran into the Mirage MX 5.1. What am I getting for the additional money?

I will be using these speakers primarily for movies and only rarely music. My family room is at least 12' x 17' with 9' ceilings. Thanks! It's so hard to buy speakers when you can't hear them for yourself first!

Energy is generally more power hungry than Klipsch , but I like the way they sound..

If you want to know if a product is "good", please tell us your definition of "bad" for an understood point of reference. Do you want subjective opinions or objective facts?

That room size is borderline for the size of those speakers.
My opinion: 1 Boston
2 Klipsch
3 Energy
I have not heard the specific models you listed but, this is the order of the brands I like here.

Sounds good!

AVR: Denon 1913
L/R: Polk RTiA1
Center: Polk CSi3
Sub: Polk PSW505

The energy take classic is the set to get they are the highest rated...

And the energy aren't power hungry at all

Here is a review of that set up

The bostons have a weak subwoofer, the klipsch struggled in a 15x15 listening room when I tried them

The energy are by far the best out of the ones you wanted
