i found bose 141 bookshelf speakers on craigslist and i wanted to know if they would be any good for my surrounds. i know bose is very "over rated" according to some people, but these speakers will just be surrounds.
im only paying 40 dollars for them, so im not worried about getting ripped off. will they blend with what i have now?(2 polk psw10s, yamaha rx-v375, cerwin vega vs120) and im looking into getting stands for them. my room is about 10x15 and my mains are along the 10ft wall. also it says the 141s are rated at 10 watts... will i blow them up by giving them about 60-80?

-speakers: cerwin vega vs120s, cerwin vega LS12s, cerwin vega at12s, jbl S36II, pok audio psw10, realistic mc1000, paradigm 7se MKII, sanyo sx600

They're $40 too much. Skip 'em.

You'd be better off with these mini bookshelfs for about the same price, temporarily, until you can save up for a completely new, matching theater audio system.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

The Bose specs say compatible with receivers rated 10-80 watts. You'll be fine.

You've got a strange collection of speakers. Cerwin Vegas, 2 Polk PSW-10's, now Bose 141. What's your center speaker?
