Tannoy TFX 5.1 Speakers - Upgrade?

I have just bought a Denon AVR-X2600 AV amp, my present speakers are Tannoy TFX 5.1.
I am looking to upgrade these, the only criteria is they must be of similar size.
The Q Acoustics 7000i Plus has caught my eye, would these be much of an upgrade over the Tannoy's?

Just looked in the manual, and it says 140Hz - 78Hz. 85db .
Wired in my QAcoustics 7000i's yesterday, so my TFX's will be surplus to requirements!

The Q Acoustics will blow them out of the water I had some of the sfx 5.1 when I was starting out they was okayyyyy, now have some Wharfedale DX1 SE Speakers that are really good for the price

cheers I have seen them the reviews were a bit indifferent. im just looking for some which will be easy to drive not for my AV amp but for the wireless rears for my soundbar which I currently have a pair of Tannoy 628 surrounds hooked up to the rear transceiver unit for the bar instead of the tiny Samsung supplied ones idea being that i will take the tannoys up to my bedroom to hook up to my av amp which ive got large Tannoy fronts and centre hooked up to already.

currently at £49 at RS. I note thsat its nt a 2way speaker so does the lack of a tweeter effect the dynamism and subtle rear effects?

No they are very good for the price get them off the Cambridge audio website they are £39 each and you can choose black or white plus with the difference in price you could get the swivel brackets too, if I was going to get another setup them are the speakers if would use for a full 5.1 with one of the centre speakers from them.

Tech specs are there, as for the sound for the price you probably won't get a better speaker, they do sound really good and like yourself I was looking at Atmos speakers for ages and finally settled on them, having a Atmos setup really does open up the front sound stage, its a shame you can't demo them however they are really good

I wouldn't worry about the fact of the tweeter, like I said they are really good for the price unless you spend more and again the frequency response, just get them haha
