Good but not too expensive surround sound speakers?

I am looking for some pretty good but not terribly expensive surround sound speakers. I have 2 Infinity front speakers but am looking for either small-ish (so I can hide them) or large (I can put things on them) back speakers or a complete set. Does anyone have any good suggestions?

Thanks

PSB Alpha Intro's
Paradigm Micro's
Def Tech ProMonitor 80's

Don't know how well they will match up (soundwise) but you might wan't to look into www.polkaudio.com
I have several sets of RT25i's - discontinued, but amazing speaks-
I use them as surrounds in 1 room, mains in a small 2 chnl. in the bedroom.and another set in the cellar.
Something this small should not produce the sound and imiging that it does!
It has won awards, as an entry level speak (Stereophile,Etc.)
and rightly so !
If you're lucky, u might still be able to find some, as Polk has just recently unveiled their new line up. Good luck ! - give us a budget $wise and we may be able to help further.

CHEERS ! jeffff

$200-$300 or so I guess would be where'd I'd like it to be if I'm just getting back speakers. Obviously more if a full set.

Infinity US-1. THey have very cool brackets built into them which will make mounting easy they are very cheap at Circuit City and the designer speaks very highly of them

Another vote for the Polk Speakers. Awesome performance at the price.

I would look at Energy speakers also.

they have good sound in a small package and at reasonable prices.

Take 5 or Take 5.2
