Help with budget 5.1 setup

I'm trying to finalize putting together a 5.1 system that is for a very tight budget. I'm no audiophile and sure almost anything will be ok with me as I have been using Logitech computer surrounds mounted on custom built stands for 2 years and I'm ok with it haha.

My front left and right channel are going to be the Tritrix TL's which I plan on building very soon. My temporary center channel will be a pinnacle center that my dad gave me before he moved. Will be replacing that with a tritrix mtm center when I get the funds to buy and build. Now my rear surrounds I was looking and wanting something that is wall mounted with minimal depth as my ceilings are only 6ft 10" and the walkway passed the couch will only be little more than 2ft on each side. I was looking at the polk owm3 that are very slim. Any other options I should look at? Also what about a budget sub?

For slim speakers you have very little options Axiom makes these here: http://www.axiomaudio.com/in-wall-on-wall-speakers

For a sub the cheapest I can recommend is the HSU STF2: http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/stf-2.html

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

O wow those are expensive. I'm thinking no more than 150ish a pair. Thus why I was kind of leaning towards the polk as they are 100 for the pair

Re: Help with budget 5.1 setup

I've started narrowing it down to a few speakers that are less than 5" deep. I'm looking at the Polk owm3, klipsch synergy s-10, and the fluance avbp2. The fluance is a little deeper at 5.5" though. I think I put the klipsch first though.

Re: Help with budget 5.1 setup

Those should do the job, just remember that they wont produce alot of lower end frequencies, They will likely bottom out well before you hit 100Hz

Looks like I'm Def going with them. They are small and look pretty good as well. Can't beat the price either.
