Very Nice System,Indeed.

Love The Speakers,The Size,but still with a narrow Front Baffle for Great Imaging.
And the Harman Kardon Seperates are a Nice Touch.

Don't rush it...zip tie/cover them together...speaker wire equal length if possible...and obviously not to have them showing is the ultimate goal.

Am I missing something in your Sig. or pics---where's the Sub?

Here's an idea for Wall Treatments - I have the 24x24x1" pieces (w/fabric covering), pics in my galleries - but they have many diff. styles, sizes, thicknesses, etc.

At one time I had a sub paired the 312HO's in my home office but it was a bit much the towers have 12" side firing woofers. So i split the system between the Office theater and the Home theater ( living room) . I am now though thinking of getting a new sub for the theater. any suggestions? Something between $500 to about $1000. I am also thinking about a complete speaker upgrade.......( Paradigm, B&W,Revel, maybe even Anthony Gallo)

From what I've read & heard here, most people usually recommend an "SVS" or "ed" Sub - tho' You'd be best to check out the various Subwoofer threads here for price points, style of sub, colors, etc.

All the Speakers you just mentioned are worth auditioning.

Just find an Audio Store some where near by you, and audition whatever brands of Speakers they have that fall in your Price Range.

Every Brand you listed makes incredible Speakers.Both in Sound Quality as well as Build Quality.Its just a matter of what sounds the best to you.

So if you can find or have a dealer or two near by just drop in and see what they recommend.Usually they will be more then willing to let you listen to speakers and see what you think would be the Best Overall performers in your System.

And I have to admit your system is extremely nice,to say the least.You have some Exceptional Gear.

I agree 100%...you really should go out and give speakers a listen and audition them. What sounds great to one person, may very well not sound good to your ears.
