    Iv'e presently got 2 Tannoy profile speakers for the left and right
    surrounds,my amp is a 2802 and i'm wanting to add a surround back but am a bit pushed for space and getting pushed from the
    wife to get something that does'nt stick out far.It'll have to fix
    to the wall,i thought that a small centre speaker would be ideal,
    trouble is sonically it won't match the Tannoys but it's a price i'm willing to pay.
    Has anyone got any ideas?Could i use a single Kef
    2005 speaker as all my speakers are set to small anyway?
    I'm not loaded and would really like to buy just the one speaker.

    Cheers.

    If you´re already considering a single Kef egg how about their Kef Q8s, only about four inches deep, older model is the Q85s. Might be worth seeing if any dealers have these going at a discount (Q85).

    Hi,
    I recently had the same problem and I opted for the 85's. They are an excellent speaker.
    Superfi were doing them for £99.99
    Good luck,
    Steve

    You can pick up mission 77ds bipoles for 79.99 they are very flush fitting.
