If you need small speakers, then they will have a poor bass response. Nothing you can do about that - it's physics. You'll really be wanting a sub.sorry, more info. ill be using it almost totally for movies, with some music pc gaming. i have a htpc and a thin wall between me and my neighbour, so a sub may not be suitable at the moment. i was thinking to buy a new av receiver package, but i already have a yamaha rxv1000. i did have 5 wharfdale linton 3xp's, that id modded with new audax tweaters, but the missus hates there size. so im looking for something with a very good clean sound, i dont need thumping bass that shakes my windows, just enough to be in keeping with the movie. what worries me is the size of some of these modern speakers, they look tiny, and dont have tweaters in some models.
Ok, the Q-acoustics 200-series is fairly highly-regarded, and should serve you well if you can accommodate that size (I assumed you needed really tiny ones when you mention female involvement)ive found this set:
