Here's where I'm at so far:
I would like to install three identical speakers for the LCRs behind the screen wall--if not identical speakers for all seven speakers planned. I should sell or move to another room the Paradigms since they won't play to reference and the Studio CC (current center) would be a week link for my goals. I'm wondering if one of the eight inch designs would sound/perform better. I want to build columns(soon) to house the surrounds, and as suggested earlier, larger surrounds would be a waste on my budget.
Most of my electronics are aging, but some pieces could still be worth selling on the used market. My newest receiver is a Marantz SR 6005 which should be enough to drive any of the SEOS designs to reference.
I'd like to stay with US made drivers, but will stray for best sound/value, if its worth it.
The benefit of this research, besides making a well informed decision, is I'm saving a little the longer it takes to make a decision.
Thanks to all for the info so far.
