    I'm looking to piece together a new HT system to replace the Klipsch HT500 system that I currently have.  Needless to say it isn't doing it for me, why else would I be here.  The system would be set up in my livingroom 13x 17 (W x L (front wall to back wall)) which is open to a dining room space that is 9 x 14.  My TV is wall mounted on a recessed wall that is approximately 16 feet from where we sit.  I just recently but a 6C center channel which I feel may be a litte overkill, but I guess we'll see.  Our floors are wood if that makes any difference.

    What would be great 5.1 setup that could literally blow me away as far as sound goes (I'll probably upgrade to 7.1 later)?  I'm using a Yamaha RX-V2065BL reciever (which everybody doesn't seem to like in the forums I read)

    Hello Cornelius and welcome to the forum,

    The 6T would be the natural match for the 6C you already have, but since you mentioned that it might be overkill then you could probably also go with the 5Ts which match well with the 6C too. 

    Then for the surrounds you can either do something like the 4BP if you can wall mount at a height of around 5 to 6 feet off the ground, or you could do a bookshelf style speaker like the 5B. 

    For the sub for an open space like that I would be thinking about the 10D, but if you really want to be blown away you could certainly do the 12D too. 

    I hope that helps but please let me know if you have any other questions, thanks!

    Would the 4BPs be a good acccompanying surround if I purchased the 6Ts? 

    Or could I just run 5Bs for my fronts and surrounds if I don't want to have anything on my floor and still get quality home theater sound?    

    Are the tower speakers produced in minimal quantity?  I just wanted to know why there is lag time in speaker availability for the tower speakers.

    I run 4 5Bs, along with a 5C and 12D. They are powered by an Onkyo 805. I enjoy the system very much. I could not do towers due to WAF.

    So yes, you would still get quality home theater sound.

    WAF? Wife Annoyance Factor?

    What does WAF mean?

    Ha! that's great; it's supposed to stand for Wife Acceptance Factor, but I guess annoyance is the more typical response [;)]

    Absolutely the 4BPs work great with the 6Ts.  

    Sure you can go for the 5Bs they are a great midsized bookshelf, but they will not give you the same room filling capabilities that you get from a tower, especially for some one like yourself that is sitting 16 feet from the screen. 

    The 6Ts are out of stock right now because they are on the way out in favor of the Verus Grand Towers so after April or May they will be done.

    The 4T and 5T are out of stock because we just sold way more than we thought we would, which is mostly a good thing.  I do have the 4T right now in the cherry finish.  The 4Ts in black will be back in stock pretty soon on about 4/5 and then the 6T will be back on 4/26 followed by the 5T on 5/6.  

    I hope that helps!
