Am I asking too much of these small speakers to fill a room with really good sound supported by a very good sub?
Not at all. Im using bookshelf speakers with a 6-1/2 woofer in a room that, including other areas open to it, totals 9000 cu. ft.

Wayne

Re: small speaker advise needed, limited space

I'm curious about the height, especially for music. IME, 44" - 48" is much better because this will (most designs) get the tweeter at about ear level when seated. Of course you'd need to take into account your height and seating arrangements.

You've gotten some great suggestions so far, here is mine (even though they are a couple inches taller);
2 RBH 1044-SE, great music speakers
1 RBH 441-SE, center
2 RBH 44-SE, surrounds
and an SVS SB12-Plus

This set-up would be very nice for your room. Plus you can get the speakers in one of 30 hardwood veneers and they'll blend in nicely with your decor and should please the wife. The quality of RBH speakers is exceptional. Your anthem gear should be a very good match, and the SVS sub should give you the lows without being too obtrusive.

Since you say you have the money and quality is object 1 with music listening in the majority (slightly), I would have to recommend the Paradigm "Signature S2 system". It's sound is absolutely staggering, and when compared with it's diminutive size; it makes it all the more mind blowing...expensive? Absolutely; and worth every single penny! Go here http://www.paradigm.com/en/reference...-2-17.paradigm for a look. If you don't care for that, then my second would be the Usher BE-718, or as it's known: "The Tiny Dancer".
Cheers and good luck,
Konky.
Might get some synergy with the Paradigms since they and Anthem are from the same company.

Might be a bit tall but otherwise the new DCM Time Windows are crazy good for the cash!
