Owner of Micro 9000 System setting up new BA HTS
I have had a Micro 9000 system (micro 90x mains, VRS surrounds, micro90c center and pv90 sub) set up in a small room since late 1998. Overall quality has been excellent. Had to play around with sub placement to smooth out the bass and also stuffed up the sub ports to reduce their activation of standing waves (room is about 11' square - definitely not ideal).
I am now setting up a home theater system with what will be a 55" tv in a larger room. So far I've acquired on ebay a pair of micro 90x's to use as surrounds and just tonight purchased a VR-10 because for $50 plus about $45 shipping costs it seemed like too good a deal to pass up. I still don't have that much lateral room to work with because the set up can't block access to storage space and the main speakers will be on a stand that will also hold the TV. So I'm looking for some not too wide main bookshelf speakers that have the VR tweeter. (That tweeter is a large part of the reason I wanted to do another Boston set up.) I have been looking at the VR-M50 (7.1" wide) (available on Ebay for a little over $300 including shipping), the Micro 100x (6.3" wide) available on Craig's List in various locations for considerably less than the VR-50s, the E40 (6" wide) which is hardly available anywhere except as a single speaker at Accessories4less, and the Micro 130x (5" wide), available as new from only one source on Ebay for about $250. I will be getting a sub, probably a 10" downward firing unit.
The left main speaker will be near a wall that creates a notch in the room. The notch wall ends about 12-16" in front of where the left speaker will be. So the narrower the main speaker, the further away it can stay from that wall.
Any advice or suggestions about how to complete the system are appreciated.
