OK

I have a set up of:

- 2 - Polk Monitor60 for my Fronts
- 1 - Polk CS1 for my Center
- 2 - Bose 161 for my rears


Denon 789

100% HT use in a 16x18 area

I wanted to replace all speakers for something more full and better in the dialog section…

was thinking about either Klipsch KF26 for Fronts and the matching KC25 Center, KS14 for rears…

or

B&W 684b fronts, 62b center, and DefTech 800s for the rear (I already ow these)

or

DefTech 1000 fronts, 2000 Center, 800 rears

AND

in either config the DefTech Pro 800 Sub


any thoughts, suggestions?

Is there a reason for buying from those places? You still haven't stated your budget.

I still dont get how those retailers are more convenient then any other unless you live next to NewEgg? That "sub" is a joke so you might as well cross that off. Anyway, here's the best deal from the egg IMO

Sub: Best one NewEgg carries, actually reaches 20hz unlike the rest $300
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882780078

Mains: Best value in the RTi line, very nice quality $500
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290156

Center $250
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290162

Surround $200
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290152

If going $50 over kills it, cheap out on the surrounds

If Chase Home Theater is still selling check 'em out. For 100% HT I'd check out some affordable high sensitivity designs. Happy hunting.
