OK my budget is about 250.00 bucks and I've been looking at bookshelves and satellites,would these be adequate in my seemingly huge front stage?Or do I need something with a little more mid kick to it?Or would you match same brand smaller towers?

Unless your using your HT in multi-channel stereo, towers or floorstanders would be overkill. Even bookshelves might be overkill, satellites for sure would be sufficient as these just handle effects when watching movies.
I use tower and a bookshelf speakers for rears as I listen in mulit-channel stereo for music and movies.
Just my .02 cents.

I would look for the same brand and series bookshelves. I don't know much about your speakers. Do you know if they have matching surrounds?

I will look,I spied some Polk RTi8's on ebay here locally and the bidding starts at 399.00 but I don't want overkill in the surround,I have a 5.1 reciever.
