i am glad to hear this from ya'll.. my sister has asked me to build her an HT system, and she is on a tight budget. she has a small to medium sized living room, so i am going to experiement with some small speakers.
i ordered 2 pair of the discontinued M1ti's from CanadianHiFi.com
. i will use 1 pair as fronts, and mount the other pair as surrounds. i have yet to get a center channel. i had serious concerns that the small speakers would have problems with producing enough sound, but your comments here have eased my doubts. i have faith in the axiom products, and hope that i am not disappointed once i get it all set up for her.
BTW- not trying to do a gratitious plug, but the people at canadianhifi were great. my emails were replied to by the president of the company, and the staff person i placed my order with was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. i would highly recommend them.
