Hey guys, got a few questions, and am quite a noob to this. Have alot of metal working experience, but nearly zero woodworking experience.

 

BUT I have access to a full "masters" woodshop, my wifes father was an amazing woodworker, building everything from humidors, to custom guitars. He unfortunately passed away a few months ago suddenly at 52, before I got a chance to learn from him, but my MIL is keeping the entire basement shop setup for her daughters husbands (4 Daughters and 3 Son in laws =) and our children.

 

Sorry, anyways...

 

At one point, I had the room to stretch out a pair of Stentorian speakers, but recently bought a townhouse. My new theater room in the townhouse is therefore going to need much less power to run. As I can't really crank anything up without getting some angry neighbors.

 

The problem was/is I had already purchased 12 of the Aura NS6 speakers.

 

So i am curious what you think the best route to go with would be. As of right now I only have 2 polk mid level bookshelves, and a polk PS10. Was thinking about building a pair of Sten 2's and then moving the polks to the back.

 

My problem/concern is what to do for a center channel, you say the Sten 2 pretty much cannot be used as a center.

 

Do I build the Sten 2's and do something completly different for center channel?

 

Do I build the Sten 2's and build a full Stentorian MMMTMMM for the center channel?

 

Do I just sell these and buy another kit? Overnight sensations, or something along those lines?

No advice on what you should or should not do, but if you want to sell the NS6 drivers, I remember a few threads on here where folks wanted to build Stentorians, but couldn't find those drivers. In an apartment, any system is a waste. A HTiB setup will still be loud enough for noise complaints.
