Decent, reasonable, small WF Speakers (Bose?)

Hello. I am looking for options for my formal living room. I have a home theater and man cave with the big speakers amps, etc. I also have another living room with the Energy Take Classic speakers, which I do like. I am looking to install surround sound in my formal living room and my wife absolutely does not want anything big. I am not typically a big Bose fan but the small size does appeal to the wife greatly, which is important in this particular room (I have gone overboard in two other rooms per her). I am even putting the components in a different room so they will be out of sight.


It will be for TV only and maybe movies sometimes.


One advantage to the smaller speakers is that I think that I will implement Dolby Atmos for the first time with an 11.2 system in this room. Here are the options that I am kicking around.


Definitive technology ProCinema 800 X2
Cambridge Audio Minx S325-V3 X2
Bose® Acoustimass® 10 Series V X2
Polk Audio Blackstone TL350 X2


I would likely replace the subwoofers with either 2 SVS SB 2000's or 2 HSU VTF-2 MK4, or 2 Rythmik LVX12's.


Any suggestions. I know small speakers = small sound and that is just the physics, but the wife really does not want anything in this particular room and I simply cannot listen to TV speakers. I even have a soundbar in my bedroom as do my children (ages 8 and 2)

Have a Look at the Quested Passive H108 Speakers or the Quested Active SR7.

Active speaker come with a Class A/B Amplifiers. All you need is a nice Tube Pre-Amp to make them shine.

Both are small 2 Way monitor speakers, it will give you a much bigger sound than the size has you believe.

Middle Pair is the H108

Top one is the S7R

They are not cheap but nothing in life worth while is.

I have not heard of them, but I will look into them. Thank you for the suggestion.
