REAR.pdf 36k .pdf file
ok, so just a recap, i need to figure out my rear surrounds to complete my 7.2 setup, the following is what i have so far:
Denon 2112 reciever
Pioneer C21 center
2 Pioneer FS-51 fronts
2 Pioneer BS-21s
2 Klipsch RW-12D subwoofers
The front 3.2 arrangement is set, but I have yet to finalize what i want to do with the surrounds. However, I have narrowed it down to two options (please see attached PDF):
1. buy another Pioneer FS-51 pair, use those as the side surrounds and move the BS-21s to the rear surrounds in the "1" locations in the closets. I would just open the closet doors when watching a movie, doing that would not bother me at all. since the speaker wire will be in the wall, i could hide the faceplate in the closets. It would also be a cleaner look with no rear channels visible when not watching a movie. i think the FS-51s would sound a lot better and i can get a pair for about 80$.
2. buy a set of mirage nanosats for about 100$ to ceiling mount as rear surrounds where the "2"s are in the pdf and leave the BS-21s as the side surrounds.
thoughts? im leaning towards the option 1 especially since the BS-21s and stands will be in a closet they will be less likely to get knocked over. the stands have some sharp corners too and there will be a 2 year old running aroung in my house soon
