Which surround speakers with 8040A?

Hello,
which surround speakers would be best match with my 8040A main speakers?
My current options are:
-G One
-G Two
-8010A

I like the G One because it's small (easy to place) and available in white but does it have enough "punch" to match with 8040A?

Hi Janne,

Your thoughts of the performance are correct, those models listed doesn't have enough performance to keep up with 8040A. We recommend to use same size monitors also in surround, so 8040B would be ideal for your system. If the monitors are too big physically, then the 2nd option would be 8030B.

8040B is physically too big so I guess 8030B would be my choise.
Is the G Three acoustically same speakers as 8030B? I'd prefer the white finish for the surround speakers and 8030B is only available in grey.

G Three and 8030B have the same acoustic output.
