I have no personal experience with these exact speakers, but I have several Polk Audio products and they have (IMO) delivered great sound for the money. The Polk Audio Blackstone TL150 speakers' MSRP is $299 and include four satellite speakers and one center channel speaker to go with your surround receiver. You'd want a subwoofer to fill out the bottom as these are rated to 125 Hz.I will start looking around for some tiny speakers to use then. Thanks for the input!
Define "tiny". Are you thinking bookshelf or the old Bose satellite cubes?I will start looking around for some tiny speakers to use then.
Bongu, if you can swing the extra $100, the Polk Audio Blackstone TL1600 is the TL150 system with the matched subwoofer, MSRP $399. Oh, but right now, it's only $299 on Amazon!The Polk Audio Blackstone TL150 speakers' MSRP is $299 and include four satellite speakers and one center channel speaker to go with your surround receiver.

You could have asked in the beginning instead of offering advice without knowing all the facts.A lesson to be learned here: It is much better to tell us what you're starting with and where you want to go rather than starting in the middle without any context and shooting down suggestions as they interfere/conflict with what you didn't tell us you had.
I think you will have trouble timbre matching the different brands of speakers, especially the Bose. They have a sound all their own.I have 4 Bose 161 speakers for the 4 corners, an onkyo powered sub, and a samsung center speaker currently. I want to go to a dimensional setup by replacing the center, using the 2 high front Bose speakers as height, and adding different Left and Right front speakers. I will probably end up using the old samsung front speakers with the samsung center for now. The only positive Wife Approval Factor will be it cost no additional $$.
IOW, your posts were vague and at no point did you ask Bongu what equipment he had. When he did say what his setup entailed, you chastised him for not being more forthcoming.If you read my posts, you'll find they are mostly requests for clarification and general cautions.
This the reason you've never seen Bose advertising speaker performance curves and using their famous red and blue line drawings instead. Now they only offer performance numbers (as opposed to performance curves) on their top-of-the-line F1s.They have a sound all their own.
In other words, the problem wasn't specified other than the desired envelope of the left, center and right front speakers. Subsequently some information about a budget number and speaker location followed. In post #12, details finally emerged.IOW, your posts were vague and at no point did you ask Bongu what equipment he had.
