The Q900 is an excellent speaker, but there is no point in having a speaker so huge if you are going to use a subwoofer.
It is also, in my humble opinion, a huge butt-ugly big black box. Few women would want to be in the same room...lol.
I suggest that you get the KEF iQ70 speakers, which are now only half-price at KEF Direct, $600 per pair, and add a NHT B12D subwoofer for $700 (those speakers are well worth the original $1200 price; they are a STEAL at the current price)
That will be a wonderful 2.1 system! You will love it IMO.
When you are ready for 5.1, get a pair of KEF C1 speakers for $300 and a C6LCR for another $300. The whole thing will be less than $2000, and you will have some very very nice sound.
