Just another Schmoe saying "size does matter" when it comes to speakers.

You can get away with smaller speakers given the relatively small room, but Bose or their size equivalents are all about aesthestics and not about sonics. I forward just about everyone I know who thinks they want to buy Bose here.. it tells you in pretty good detail why we don't like them much.

For the budget you're looking at, I think you can't beat the system from SVS that was already mentioned. You can get a 5.1 setup with a sub that will best any sub you can get in a big box store for $999. They will be a little bit bigger at 12" x 7" x 9.5", but really, that's about as small as a good speaker can get. And if you have white walls, you can get the white version and they should blend a little if you wall mount them.

As for the Hsu sub, can't argue -- they make some great subs. I'd argue that the SVS subs are at least as good. If you check out the subwoofer tests on this forum, you can get some really detailed information on several of the SVS and Hsu subs.
