    If you already have the speakers why not try them, if not borrow some from a dealer.

    As for the sub you won't go wrong with a Velodyne CHT-10 @ £325 from uncle eric in the power buys.

    i don't have the speakers yet
    i think i would be hard pushed to find a dealer willing to let me borrow some in central scotland
    do you know if they sound good for movies?

    Tom, just a thought but if you are going for a decent sub like the Velodyne CHT10 (to take care of the low stuff) then there's arguably no need to go for big floorstanders like the MX3-M's. You might as well save some money and get the MXC-M plus either four MX1-M's or two MX1-M's a two MXR-M's.

    All you would then need to do is set all the speakers to "small" so that the sub takes care of all frequencies below a given Hz (usually something like 90Hz on Yamahas).

    Having heard an M3, MC, M1 set up many years ago, I would expect the latest M series Tannoys to sound perfectly good for home cinema.

    Matt.

    what about the tannoy rsub 15 would this be better than the velodyne both in performance and matching??

    Tom - because of the frequency range in question (80Hz and below) there is no tonal matching to take account of with subs - you should be able to match up a decent sub with speakers from any manufacturer.

    I'm not familiar with the performance of the Tannoy R 15 but it does look like quite a beast. Have a listen to one by all means.

    Matt.
