- I have a limited budget -- around $500 or $600. In a perfect world, I’d be able to buy all 5 speakers for this amount of money. But if I need to, I could just buy two or three speakers now and then add the remaining speakers later when I have some extra cash. Even if I piecemeal a system, I don’t want to spend much more than $1,200 total
- WAF. This is the biggie. From her perspective, if we have to have speakers then they need to be close to invisible. She thinks something like Bose cubes are big enough. And she’d much rather they be white to match the walls. Speaker stands won’t be allowed so I’ll need to use wall mounts.
Focal Sib. I’d love for these to be as awesome as their marketing says. They have 5.125” woofer and claim a frequency response down to 75Hz. If that’s true I could set the crossover at 95 or 100Hz. They come in white. High WAF. And the best part is that I can get a full set of them for $500. They are the only option I’ve come up with that I can afford all of them today. Sounds too good to be true.
Bowers & Wilkins M-1. B&W seems to be a well-liked brand. These come in white and look great. They claim a Frequency response down to 64Hz, but with a 4” woofer can they really deliver? These are $240/ea so I’d only be able to get a pair to start off with.
Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000. Claim a low frequency response of 42Hz, which I don’t believe even though they have a 5.25” woofer. They manual says to set the sub crossover at 100Hz, which is acceptable. These come in white and are $220/ea so I’d only buy 2 or 3 to start.
Martin Logan Motion 4. These have similar specs to the B&W’s, but they are in a much larger case. They don’t come in white, but I really like the look when they are wall mounted. Each speaker is $240. Their shape doesn’t lend them to being used as a center so a Motion 8 would be needed as well. The Motion 8 costs $380, which is probably a deal breaker unless these blow all the other options out of the water.

Jealous of my speakers?
