    Small for all speakers IMO. The Quad's go fairly low, but aren't huge floorstanders and the Evo centre will surely work better as "small". Let the sub do the work.

    Sorry to hijack your thread but I just wanted to ask you about how you are getting on with mixed speakers ie Quad/Wharfedale in your setup. I too have some 11ls for my hifi setup (Arcam A85 and Cyrus CD7Q) and am thinking of adding Home cinema with a receiver being used as a processor and using the Arcam and Quads for the front two in the 5.1 setup.

    I can't really stretch to Quads for rears and centre and had heard that mixing speakers, particlarly fronts and centre, can cause problems with the tonal matching. I can see that this would be the case but in your experience is this a serious compromise!

    Any feedback would be useful.

    Cheers.

    No probs @ all! the wharfdale speakers use the same drivers as the quads and the same tweeters! differnt cases n crossover's is the main differnce!
