I grew up with cerwin vegas, and had a 12'' sub in my car back in highschool (you know, before i actually put things in my trunk) so im used to the low end of my music hitting pretty hard. naturally, my sony ss-mf750h just isnt cutting it on the bottom end, which i actually bought because they were the only ones in my price range with 8" woofers. so ive auditioned a few speakers, liked a few, but absolutely loved the paradigm monitor 11s, and was planning on purchasing some monitor 9's, but sadly after taking a more honest look at my setup, i just don't have the room space to pull them as far away from the wall as i would like. the current sony's are about 8'' away from the wall, at most i could maybe do 10". ive thought about getting a sub, but i just dont have the space for one, and also it would require something other than my onkyo a9555, which i love too much to let go. I even thought about cerwin vegas again but from what i can tell they seem to be rear ported. this is purely for music, and would be in a smallish room (15x12) but i have a tendency to like it loud enough to be heard throughout the house (not the largest house mind you). from what ive read, im leaning towards axiom m50s or m60s, or maybe even some psb's, but im generally worried about buying a speaker i cant audition first. so any recommendations out there people? Front ported speakers with great low end for pure music purposes......
