I realize these are better than many of the smaller surround speakers available, but if I need to think about the WAF, I might need to go with something smaller that can more easily be wall mounted. Anyone have any recommendations for surrounds that might fit the bill? The rest of my system consists of all Pioneer, the BS51s, the C21 center channel, and a Pioneer receiver. Thanks in advance!
Although I do not currently own the Pioneers, I would advise you to stick with the speakers that you have. From what I've read, all of the Andrew Jones Pioneer speakers in this range share certain sonic characteristics. Even though the surround channels carry less presence then the front speakers, having sonically matched speakers in a surround setup will tend to create a more unified and realistic sound field.
energy take 5 satellite speakers. they have that piano gloss black finish im sure the wifey will like. im using the pioneer 51s, c21 center and two energy take for surrounds.
problem is they dont sell those satellites by themselves so you need to look for used.
