Hi all.

Here's my current setup.

Center : Energy CC-10
Fronts : Energy RC-70's
SUB : SVS PB1000


I need rear/surrounds.. Budget as high as maybe 250-400 for the pair.. I am in Canada, and as any Canadian knows, my options are fairly limited in comparison to the US.

I was thinking of just grabbing the deal on the CB-10's at future shop right now for 150... But I also can source some Polk or Klipsch.

Any advice.. Any experience on what might match this setup?

Thanks...

Since you're using a CC-10 with your RC-70 mains, I'll venture to say that the CB-10s will work just fine as surrounds.

But IMO you should keep an eye out on canuckaudiomart.com, [yourcity].kijiji.ca or used[yourcity].com for a pair of gently-used RC-10s...and maybe also for an RC-LCR. wink.gifsmile.gif

Yeah, I could have had RC-LCR from the US for 169 but they wouldn't ship to Canada due to authorized reseller bs.. .. FS wants 599 and calls it a sale..

Even if I manage to get my hands on some great surrounds now, I can always get a new center later...

You Could also look out for Energy CR-10's, which are the bipole/dipole surrounds that match the CB/CF line. I have a pair as front heights with RC-30's and LCR and they blend in perfectly.

A lot of people seem to like the Axiom QS4 and QS8 multi directional surrounds for use with all kinds of different setups.
