    If you have the room, go with the 4T. I own the 5B, and they rock. But they serve a purpose. Towers will (almost) always be better than bookshelves.

    I think Dan upgraded from 5B to 4T, so he will probably chime in soon on this.

    You should also give room specs, and what type of amp you will have to run them for a full answer.

    What would you be using the speakers for?  What is the percentage of music to movies?  How large is your room?  What is your seating distance?

    You might try searching, as this topic comes up quite a bit.

    I went from 5Bs to 4Ts.  Go to Store/Towers/View Details/user reviews.  I was the last one to review the 4Ts and am at the top.  I mention a bit about the comparison.  I will say that the bigger difference is in music listening verses movies.  I am very happy with them.  I find them to have a fuller midrage which balances the highs a bit.  That is to my taste, but with speakers, taste is a very personal thing.  

     

    Cheers

       Thanks for all the input,

    The speakers will be used exclusively to listen to movies and TV shows. Rarely for music.  

     Yeah my room is in the basement and it has a lot of weird angles. I'm planning on posting the dimensions but it will me a bit of time to post it because it has a bunch of weird angles. It's basically 10 ft by 16 ft, the seating distance is 10 ft away. But there is also on the left side a hallway opening of 5.8 ft and 12 ft deep. Not sure what kind of impact an opening like that will have on the sound.

     Also I have a toddler so it might be best to just get bookshelves installed on the wall.

     cheers,

     Jason

    Unless you're going to do a lot of music listening, bookshelves should do you well.  You'll want to pair them with a sub, though.  With that combo, they'll be no slouch in the music department either.

     

    I have 5B's and love them.

    The 4Ts outperform the 5Bs in my opinion, but I agree with PJ I don't think you'll necessarily need the 4Ts given your usage and listening space. 

    For mostly movies in a space of your size the 5Bs should be more than adequate.

    Hope that helps, thanks!
