Help me decide guys,

Right now i live in an apartment and will be moving soon to a new condo with a living room size 12x14x9. My setup is m7s7, center 3, polk audio tsi300 for surround and svs sb13 ultra.
Option 1.
upgrade my fronts to monitor 11 then move the monitor 7 at the back or
Option 2.
go dual sub, buy another svs sb13ultra
Option 3.
Get the surround 3.

Thanks
I think you've got it petty good right now with what you have but would choose option 4 if there is one.
Get the CentreSurround 3 for side surround and use the tsi 300's for rear surround in your now 7.1 system.

This will be my new living/ht room. callas, maybe you can help me design my room . 2 sb13 ultra will look good on each corner or between the fronts but i think it will be overkill

My apartment setup right now.

Is the couch going to be up against the wall or out towards the middle like in the bottom picture?

So I'd say when you setup, give the M7s about 18" from the back of the speaker to the wall, allow the bass reflex to help emphasize the bass and boundary loading. It's a good place to start so the bass doesn't sound too boomy or too weak, adjust to your liking, plus it'll add depth to the sound, drums and bass guitars should sound like they're 2-3' behind the speakers. For surrounds, I'd suggest getting bi-pole on-wall speakers behind your seated position.

I don't have experience with either but I think because you already have the paradigms, I'd just stick with those for a coherent sound all the way around. However because they are surrounds, either would work just fine.
