So, I am currently obsessed with the thought of having some powered, pro monitors for LCR's in my small HT set-up. I was thinking that three good 2 way 8" monitors would really give me good sound in my living room. Should be tight, clean, and relatively impactful. I have an SVS PB13U as a sub right now for the LFE so I should be good there. Please let me know what you think.


I was thinking about one of these, but i am always open to suggestions:

Well, the monitors you've listed are great for nearfield listening, but as several guys mentioned in your other thread, these would probably not quite cut it in your room for ht purposes. Of course, nothing wrong with giving them a shot if the store has a decent return policy.


As an alternative, perhaps you could consider active pro sound speakers as a possibility. There are quite few options in that area. I've heard good things about the Electro-Voice ZX series. This particular model is close in size and price to the monitors you listed. There are many other good brands as well but these are some I remembered because I almost purchased them a month ago. Best of luck.
