Default Active cinema speakers

Hello all,

I am planning a cinema with an 2.35 acoustically transparent screen.
The room is 4.3m wide, 7m deep and 3m high, sitting position about 3.5-4m.
I am wanting to build 3 main active speakers behind the screen and active rears.
I am after something comparable or better than the Genelec AOW312 or the HT315.
My ideas are revolving around the PHL 4530 12" woofer, PHL 1220 or 1520 mid and Illuminator (D3004/6620000) tweeter for better off axis.
I have also considered using the Illuminator 15WU/8741T00.
Electronics and amplification mostly by Ground Sound.
The rears i am still working out which would be best, direct or diffuse.

Would this combination work? Or what other suggestions could you make that will work.

Thanks again

The PHL 12" you should use is the 4021 (I love the sound of it). not the 4530. The 4021 is alot better in lower register.
Ground Sound rocks.
