The Pioneers are excellent budget speakers, but they are not going to play very loud compared to the Bic Formula series. So if you think you'll want over 95db of output, go with three of the FH-6s across the front, and get a pair of Pioneers for the surround channels. When your budget allows get a couple more FH-6s to replace the pioneers. The horns on the BIC speakers are not as harsh as the Klipsch speakers because they don't use compression drivers. So even a lot of people who do not like the horn sound still like BIC horns.
