While it will be used for 90% movies and tv, we do at times linen to music in 7 channel stereo mode and I don't want them to sound completely different. The surrounds will be on speaker stands not mounted on the wall and they will only be about 3 feet from the listening position.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Dude, the SEOS's can produce SPL so high that it is painful to be within 20ft of them.
I found that being 12 feet away or more was most-ideal, or closer than 4ft , you don't want to be in the 5ft to 8ft range as the off-center spread is too low to cover more than 2 seats.
the Fusion 10 - Max i use as my surrounds are maybe 4 feet away. everything seems fine with that
I use the one pi in a sealed enclosure for my surrounds. Its not a PERFECT tonal match with my Tempests but for a surround, it sounds pretty darn good. Some people may not like directional speakers for surrounds so a dome tweeter might be the way to go.
Ozziedog, the low XO point matters to make sure the nulls are spread out really wide and so the wavelengths are long where the drivers sum. It's not really about how loud it is, although it is going to be way over kill. I'm not sure how Sibuna keeps them from being over bearing. But he obviously does. He uses the Fusion Max for surrounds, which do have a low XO for that type of speaker.
