What brands are sold in your country for speakers? Are you dead set on compression drivers and horns? Seems unnecessary in your room size and volume level desired. Why not build yourself some bookshelf speakers?
PA spakers I can get Yamaha, JBL, Behringer, etc. These seem to be more competitive regarding prices, and there is more variety.
Standard speakers I can get Polk, Jamo, some Klipsch, Q Acoustics, Wharfedale, etc. These time of speakers are too expensive for what they offer, as most of the higher end are floorstanders and for HT I really don't need the lower extension, that's why I have my DIY subwoofers. For example, If I want to get a good bookshelf speaker from Dali Audio, I can get a pair for the same price of a Behringer B215XL.
Am I dead set on CD? IDK. My first DIY speaker was a Fusion 6 MT for L and R and a Fusion 6 MTM for center, these use a 6 EOS, a Denovo Audio 150 CD and a Faital Pro 6" driver, and I did not like them at all... the highs seemed muffled and without detail... That's my whole experience with CD.
Now I have a Nexus MT (also designed by MTG90) which are a 5" Dayton with a 1" Silk dome Dayton tweeter, I do like how they sound, but I think a bigger speaker will offer me a greater audio presentation and greater dynamics. I do listen to moderate levels, and I hate when I cant hear the dialogue, so I set a higher volume, and then in another scene, BOOM! I need to lower the volume because it's too loud. One thing I am sure, is that I like clear highs, not muffled, a non "laid back sound".
The return policy on those Behringer is very poor, I can only return them if they fail withing a certain time, no "Return if not satisfied". I might demo them, but the conditions might not be the best.
