I am setting up a surround system in the family room (a secondary system). Because of the design I can only have bookshelf front speakers (no room for towers, thinking of PSB Imagine B) and in ceiling for surround. For the surround I wanted bipolar as the surrounds would be less directional and probably better that way because they would be in ceiling. Definitive Tech seem to have good bipolar in ceilings.

Any thoughts? Typically I would match the brand for the surrounds but PSB only have direct in ceilings. In Canada so partial to PSB due to cost benefit etc.

Thanks!

I don't see any issues here. It is far more important to timbre match your front three speakers than your main speakers and surrounds. Paradigm is also based in Canada, no? Might want to check out their bookshelves as well, along with the new Deftech Studio Monitor series (SM55 and SM65).

Also which Deftech surrounds are you looking at? I have the UIW RSS III's and love them..

I was thinking of those def tech surrounds as well. Did you go In wall/ ceiling sub? I have not figured out what to do yet as it may be hard to fit a standing sub based on the design of the room and have never tried in ceiling subs (would the bass be felt in the room above?)

Also for sub, would it be best to match the front and centre ( ie. PSB sub)?
