Bose Acoustimas 10 / 901 / Cambridge Soundworks Sub Questions

Speakers and Subwoofers - Home Theater Forum - www.hometheaterforum.com
I am attempting to build a system based on an Onkyo® TX-NR626 7.1 surround sound receiver.  I will be running a system geared for home theater with a Sharp LC 90LE657U - 90" LED Smart TV.  I listen to a lot of music and want o make sure that the speaker configuration that I end up with gives me flawless sound.  I am more concerned with the music audio then I am with the theater surround sound.  I am in a small room approximately 11 x 13 with only 2 seats. Since the room is so small, I was attracted to the Bose Acoustimass 10 speakers for the size vs sound trade off.  I visited the Bose store today and listened to some Acoustimass 10 cube speakers with a powered sub.  They sounded OK but thought that my Cambridge Soundworks 15 sub would be a necessary addition, especially since its already here in my house doing nothing! I was also impressed that Bose offers a single configuration with the Acoustimas speakers that uses the exact amp that I have (I have 3 of these in the house in separate spaces) so I was inclined to give them a shot.  Was looking to purchase some slightly used Acoustimas 10 cubes and a pair of 901s on EBay for approximately $1,000.00 total.  Does this sound like a good plan?  I don't see how I can connect the Cambridge sub up, since the 901s have a specialized equalizer which would not allow me to insert, in series.  Will the 901s (mounted from the ceiling) compensate for the inadequacies of the cubes?  How should I connect these speakers up (don't want to buy a separate amp and deal with pre-amp daisy chaining).  The 901s have to be the back speakers just due to the space available for placement, in the room, not to mention mixing the cube speakers for front and centers.  Is this a good, or a bad idea?  I can spend $2,500.00 on another speaker configuration if I will get better sound, as opposed to the Bose configuration that I am thinking of attempting.  The sound is more important to me than the money savings. (don't tell the wife :-)).  Can any one guide me to the right path?
