First and foremost, hello everyone! I've been thumbing around on here all day and what a wealth of information, great site! Onto my question. I'm in the process of picking out a few budget conscious items to get started on my HT system. The room is ~18x18 with the lowest part of the ceiling at 8' and highest at 11'4". The main viewing location is the sofa and is located 12' from the TV. A while back I had purchased a pair of Monitor 40's and a CS1 when I saw them on sale and still have them sitting in the box. I'd like to use those for now, but need fronts. I'm currently looking at the Monitor 70's or 75's(as they are on sale), but I don't know if they are a good fit for the room in question. What are your recommendations for front speakers for a room like this? For power I'm getting a Denon 1713 and also looking to do a sub if need be. This is all going in my living room and I have plans to build a theater setup in the basement, hence why I don't want to go crazy on spending for this setup. I'm open to suggestions on all parts if something seems mis-matched.
Thank you guys!
