Default Full Range

When a speaker is listed as Full Range that means that it should be able to handle the highs from tweeter range to the lows in the bass correct? I understand that I will not get the crisps of a tweeter or the deep bass of a sub but is a better bet in a home surround system for the cube speakers than say a mid range speaker correct?

In general, yes, that is correct. Is there something specific you're considering?

The term "full range" may not be entirely accurate. It's might be better to think of them as "extended range" drivers. "Full range" drivers will usually sacrifice one end of the audible range to meet the goals of the designer. Many designs using these drivers will be assisted by either a woofer/subwoofer or tweeter. If you're looking at small full rangers (ala Bose Acoustimas) you can easily meet and/or exceed that brand's performance by using 3" drivers for your speakers and a powered subwoofer. Tangband drivers are very popular with the DIY crowd for this type of build.
