Maybe too big for the wife, but the Ascend Acoust CMT340s are excellent and run about 600/pr shipped. The matching center will run you 330 shipped. That would leave you 500 and that should get you a quality sub- SVS, Epik, EMP, etc...Just one suggestion. I don't own these speakers, but have a good friend who does and they are very improessive for the money!

Are you placing the speakers in a cubby hole like opening/section?

I recently shopped around for a 3.0 system (2 bookshelfs and a center) that needed to be set up very close to the back wall of my space, so I limited my search to front-ported or acoustic suspension speakers. Ultimately I settled on the NHT Classic Three bookshelf with the TwoC center. They're an acoustic suspension design, so no ports. I found that while KEF's bookshelf speakers are front-ported, their centers (at least the ones I was looking at) have the ports in the back. NHT is having a sale at the moment (http://www.nhthifi.com/NHT-Black-Friday-Secret-Sale-Page), I paid $1k shipped for a pair of Classic Threes and the TwoC center.

I'm a fan of KEF speakers but I wouldn't recommend the C series. For the money there are several better options. (I would only recommend KEF speakers with Uni-Q drivers.)
