The sound from the front 3 speakers is louder ( not neccesarily cleaner) in the dining area behind them than it is in the living room itself. That is why i feel I need to put something behind these speakers to absorb that sound to make the overall sound cleaner in the living room.
If the surrounds are overpowering the fronts, then this is sounding more like a setup issue than anything else.

Nice 357!! It'll be worth the wait, gives you something to look forward to and when you get them your set, what are you going to use as surrounds?

Sierra-2 LCR
HTM-200 rears
Rythmik E15HP
Anthem MRX-300
Samsung 8550 UHD

For surrounds I'm just going to move back my Sierra 1s that I have been using as a LCR. Will most likely sell the center though as I have no use for it anymore once the Towers and Horizon come in.

This is what I did when I got the Towers and Horizon.
