Now if your list is complete how

sounds like Vader...'and now your turning to the dark side is complete'...

I don't think the list is complete, but it's pretty full.

Seth, thanks for putting this list together.

I'm getting real close to pulling the trigger on the Polk RM6900. Can anyone recommend similar speakers that I should look at? I'm trying to limit how much of the list I have to go thru. Thanks in advance.

FYI, Energy recently released their new line of Take speakers. The line is a little different in that it goes from small sats to tower speakers. But, I think the LCR and SAT speakers below fit this thread:

Energy Take LCR - 12-1/2 x 6-1/2 x 4-1/4"

Energy Take SAT - 8-1/8 x 6-1/2 x 4-1/4"

I'm getting close to doing the same thing. Reports I've read have ALL been very positive. I can't find anybody bashing even the slightest on the RM6900. Anybody have these speakers that can share some thoughts?

I was looking to this thread to help answer my question:

I currenly have M&K 150 L/c/r with ss150 as surrounds...

Looking to make 7.1 system.


The rear speakers would be hung from ceiling, in middle (lenghtwise) of basement space .

I want them to be unobstrusive, and afraid of making big hole into celling for inceiling speakers.

I am not convinced that a 7.1 system is even needed...but willing to try it out.

Was thinking about the Mirage omni or nano...then saw the Orbs...

Anyone have any experience using these as rears? How bad/good can they really be? I suspect they would be on for the birdchirp/raindrop/bulletcasing falling part of the theater experience.

Pierre

The RM6900's rock! The one thing lacking is the bass. I decided to upgrade the bass module to the PSW12. Much better bass, not boomy and better frequency range. I replaced my Bose AM10 with the RM6900. As someone put it, "the Bose speakers sound like an AM radio compared to the 6900's" and they were right! Crutchfield has them on sale now for $899.

You should add Role Audio Kayak, Discovery and Skiff to your list.

I'm using Role Audio Discovery speakers for L, C and R in our living room. We previously used Paradigm Reference Studio 60. The Discoveries sound great, have really good imaging (even though I have them placed in our A/V cabinet) and are tiny. We use a subwoofer for the low end.

Role Audio is made by NSM. I have some NSM Model 5s (cheaper version of the Role Audio Kayak) coming on their way to try in my bedroom.

I don't know why this company has such a limited presence in the marketplace, they are making some really nice stuff. I like that their speaker designs are acoustic suspension instead of having rear mounted ports. Rear mounted ports make it difficult to place the speakers close to the wall, where wives normally want them.

I appreciate you taking the time to make this list. However, as it is, the list isn't very useful. I'm looking around at small speakers right now, but the list doesn't provide any information about any of them, sort them, or even provide links.

May I suggest organizing the list in some way such as sort by MSRP, by size of the woofer (which appears to be a general indicator of size), or at least alphabetize the list by company name? That would make the list indefinately more useful.

I rofl'ed your waffle.

Right,
But that would be too much clutter and MSRP has little to do with anything when it comes to pricing. I always buy used (if I can) so that's market price which fluctuates.
As for links, google will give better results than me for reviews pictures and maybe a manufacturers site or online store if there is one.

What you want is a java applet of a database that will have searchable criteria much like cars.com (distance from searcher, mileage, cost, etc.) that's a bit much and I'm rusty on my .asp (actually I don't know any).

Anyone checked out the Polk RM30 speakers? http://www.polkaudio.com/homeaudio/s...ms/rm30system/

Not entirely small but they certainly don't take up much space.

The Rocket Tykes are discontinued. There's a X-LS speaker but it's not exactly small. It's size is 13.5" H x 8.5" W x 12.125" D

How bright are the RM6800 and 6900 compared to Infinity's speakers?
