I just moved into a new place, and finally have an opportunity to upgrade my system from its current 3.1 to a 5.1. I would like recommendations on what speakers to get for the 2 surround channels given my current setup. I'd like to stay under $500 total!
The room is a family room roughly 17' by 19' with a cathedral sloped ceiling, so it is not necesarily the best for sound quality
Listening position is about 12' from the TV. One side of the room is fully open to the kitchen. Our main focus is on TV/movies, although we also use the system for music. However, when used for music, we are not normally in the room sitting down.
The room is wired for the 2 surround channels, and the wires are on built-in shelves, so ideally speakers need to be shelf-worthy - though I expect that is not an issue with most surrounds.
Infinity RS-2 for the fronts and CC-3 for the center. Both 12+ years old, but still sounding good.
Hsu VTF-2 for the sub
Thanks for your recommendations!
