$750 - front ported, bookshelf 5.1?
Defeated, she won. Have to downsize the 5.0 system I have been running (onix x).
First, yes, I realize that guy was a terrible person. But, I didn't know it at the time I bought any of that stuff. I have a center channel, two bookshelf surrounds and two tower mains. All share 6.5 drivers I believe. They sound pretty good and can move some air. Now, I'm moving. The center channel won't fit on the mantle (far too deep, I have 8 inches to work with) and I'm not allowed to keep floor standers as mains if I want to keep my klipsch fortes in the vinyl-only stereo I have...I'm not giving those up. Worst part is, I doubt I can get any money out of the 5.0 setup due to the aforementioned jerk.
This means I'm in the market for a 5.1 setup and need to wall mount everything except the center channel. I have a pretty big room and I'm nervous about filling it. Most of the stuff in my range seems pretty small (def tech 600, energy take 5, klipsch quintet, etc.) or rear ported meaning the requisite wall mount isn't going to work well (Cambridge s30, Andrew jones pioneer). Anything will be driven by my onkyo 809.
Am I missing any options here? Not sure where else to look or if I should just pick a sacrifice on the porting or size and realize things can't be perfect with my budget and space constraints. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers and beers.
