That is kind of vague. What type are you looking for? Monopole, bi-pole, di-pole. Horn loaded or dome. What does the rest of your system consist of? I may not be able to give you the best answer, but with this info I think the rest of the members may be able to help you better.

There is no such thing as "best", there is "what fits your system best"...

Sorry but I know nothing about B&W speakers. All I can tell you is your surrounds are not a important your mains, so if you are OK with the way the Sony speakers sound put that money towards getting your towers.

I agree with Mr. Smigro 100%. You will notice a much bigger difference if you get a pair of quality towers.

get the new b&w front speakers you want to match the center you have. then use the sony's you have upfront now as your rear/surround speakers and replace them when you have the money or get the itch.

Klipsch make some good surrounds IMO. Surrounds typically only need to handle higher frequencies and Klipsch horns are great at that. You may be better off buying a 5 speaker system and use the non-center for your 4 surrounds. It's frequently less expensive to buy 5 as a set than to buy 4 individually. You can almost certainly get a decent set for under $500.
