Hello all! Well it's that great time of year when bonuses start hitting. Now I am looking into upgrading my front 3 speakers. My set up is currently as follows:

AVR:Denon AVR 3808CI
Front: 2 Definitive Technology ProMonitor 100's
Center: Definitive Technology ProCenter 100
Rear: Definitive Technology ProMonitor 100's
Subwoofer: SVS PB12-nsd

My budget is around $1000 for the 3 speakers. I am thinking of moving my current fronts back and running a 7.1 set up.

My room is fairly small, but this summer I am looking to move, and will have a place with a larger, more dedicated room.

Any suggestions? smile.gif ......Obviously my entire set up besides the sub is def tech right now, but I could go for whatever brand gives me the best set up for the money.

Thanks in advance!

For that sort of money I like the JBL L880 + LC2.

Lol Yeah it will probably be my rears and surrounds that get upgraded on my next bonus. My pb12-nsd is brand new (less than a week old) and given a large enough room i'd love another, but unfortunately svs discontinued it. I got it at their closeout price of $600 which was a steal smile.gif. Thanks for the quick responses. After reading the reviews of the 340's, I'm thinking these are the way to go cool.gif

The new Chane Theater Ten's might be worth a look.

They would definitely be a dynamic speaker, which is nice for movie use.
