    Question 1: I have about ~10 inches of clearance between my television and table. Also looking to keep them relatively close to the wall. ~8 inches. The left speaker would be in one corner of the room.

    Are any of the ascend speakers a good choice for my constraints? (Either by laying speakers horizontally+possibly rotating tweeters or buying multiple centers?)

    Thanks in advance for any tips/advice,

    Background/Details:
    - Budget-- Have flexibility here. Looking for good value, but am not an audiophile. Maybe <$1000 for speakers + center, but willing to spend for the Sierra-2's if that ends up being the ideal solution. The Sierra satellites sound very interesting, but am not sure about expected pricing/availability.
    - Watch TV/Netflix (70%) + listen to some music through Spotify/Amazon Prime/etc (30%)
    - Yamaha RX-A1000 Receiver (Hoping not to replace/upgrade this)
    - Want speakers that will sound nice anywhere in the area, not just directly in front of the speakers.
    - Room (family + kitchen) is about 38' x 18'
    - Have an old Energy XL-10 sub that I am going to upgrade. (maybe one of the Hsu's or Rhythmik)
    - Have two young kids (2,4), so safety is a priority. (No floorstanding speakers or stands)
    - Doesn't require optimal placement far away from wall. (I am about to return a set of Elac B6/C5 because they sounded boomy when placed underneath the television.)
    - ~<10" horizontal clearance. (Have a little wiggle room)
    - I like the ability to hear dialogue and enjoyed addition of the center when demoing the Elacs.
    - WAF/Aesthetics are a plus
    - I've posted pics of the tv area and layout in the first post here.
    The Sierra Luna are available now and would probably fit your needs well. I think any of Ascend's speakers could work well in you situation. Is it possible to post a picture of your setup?

    Are you able to post a picture of the front of the room? This would be very useful.
