I know given unlimited budget that 5 of same speaker is ideal, but given limitation...Set of silms or 3's wit BMR x 3 or Phils are more than enough?

I know you have a center but to avoid lobing isn't a BMR or Phil better if it can be used?

Thanks!
More good questions. I'll have to get back to you tonight on these--I have 14 people coming over for a music (?) recital.

For HT, surrounds are the last place I would invest heavy funds. Aesthetics aside, I think my Affordable Accuracy monitors are more than adequate to the task. I'm not sure most people have a complete understanding of center channel lobing issues. If you have the room, any monitor standing upright will have more even horizontal dispersion than most any dedicated center channel placed horizontally. But even a horizontal MTM will be fine for most applications. At typical listening distances, you have to be pretty darn far off axis before lobing between the two woofers will be a real issue. i think horizontal MTM's get a bum rap in that regard.
