    Looking for small but decent speakers for a large room.

    To date all i know of are the mission cube speakers...

    need to buy about 10/12 of them so if anyone knows other options please say. or if anyone has used these speakers would they recommend??

    Are you planning on using them all in one room?

    What are the speakers being asked to do - Background music, Movies or HiFi?

    Best regards

    Joe

    Look at the Castle Compact surrounds. Small beautifully made surrounds that also sound very good. Remember, for small speakers you will need a (decent)sub.

    A very large living room....

    Have since convinced the owner to only use 7!!!

    think i'm going to get a denon reciever with 7.1, and HDMI. Now i have to decide what speakers to use :suicide:

    The B&W look nice but the problems are u can only buy them in sets of 5 with a sub. And i can't get prices online for them???

    B&W M1's are £125 each and available singly.

    There is a box set of 5 that you can buy, but I have also seen them boxed singly.

    I bought mine from technosound in Milton keynes.

    Have a ring about, you will find what you want.b

    PMC DB1+ 's - i've got them in a large kitchen dining area, bass is well re-produced because it uses the waveform stuff (look on the website) they fill an area 3m x 8m with very good sound reproduction.

    basically studio monitor speakers, I've replaced a pair of mission m73 floorstanders with them and I am more than happy to say the least. Better clarity and a lot louder.

    I am currently using some speekers for my side and rear that I had shipped over from America, not read any UK reviews on them, but to my ears they sound rather good, way better than anything I listened to when auditioning the usual run of the mill satelite's anyway (at a sensible price anyway) wife says that they look good too. Their website is at http://www.orbaudio.com
