    Hi,


    I have just moved to a new house and it doesn't have the space for my speakers that the old place did. I currently have 603 s2 at the front lcr600 centre and 601s2 rears. I need to change the rears as there 2 damn large ( can't open the door when there in place) :(
    I was thinking about keeping it all B&W and getting a pair of LM1 for rears. But a m8 of mine can get me a v good deal on a Bose AM5 package for the rears.
    Anyway thoughts on a good sound solution to my space issue would be great.


    Rgds,
    Goggs.

    If you want good sound you better stay away from Bose then.
    How about in walls or in cealing speakers?
    You should get speakers that match your fronts, so it is probably best to stay with B&W.

    I have B&W CCM80 ceiling mounted speakers which I use as rear backs.

    Have only had them a couple weeks but so far I can't fault them.

    Thx for the info.

    The ccm80 looks like a v good idea. If its handling rear duties should it be wall mounted rather than ceiling or will both work without any issues + does the CCM80 have enough punch or would a large speaker in the range be a better bet?
    Also :) how much did you get your CCM80s for:D


    Thx
    Goggs.

    Goggs,

    would have to check the invoice (I bought a whole load of kit at the same time) but recall that the CCM80's were approx £350 for the pair. I specifically bought them for ceiling mounting, and have not been disappointed with their performance, so can't really comment on whether a single large speaker would be better.

    I only have them for the rear centre and have wall mounted speakers (Sonus Faber) for surrounds. I have certainly not felt that they are lacking in punch.
    HTH's
    Neil.
