I am setting up a new system for both music and 5.1 theater (eventually growing to a 7.1). I've decided to go with Image T6s & C5 center but I'm not sure what to use for my surround channels.
I'm driving the new set with a Yamaha RX-A2000 (recently purchased) and have a medium size room sitting about 10-12' from the fronts and 6-8 feet from the rear unless I go stands. Should I use B6s or B5s for the surrounds? Or should I step up for the S5s (are they worth the price difference for surrounds)? I am already pushing my budget but I don't want to be disappointed if another $100-$200 would make a big difference.
Oh, and I'm still not sure what I should do on the Sub either. I've heard mixed messages on the 5is ability to really kick. What should I be doing here? (knowing I'll have a little bass support from the t6s) I prefer my system to be just a bit bass heavy and I want my movies to really kick.
Thanks for the help.
