I really don't know what I want to do. I'm trying to do a 3.1 setup and have the sub and a Denon 1613 already. I want a setup thats going to be used evenly between movies/music/games. Not sure if I want to get a Klipsch center to match my RF3s (I really like my RF3s but am worried about their narrow sound-stage)... and I don't know if I want to spend 500ish to get the c/l/r to match the aging definitives... The other idea i had is to sell the definitives and get 3 speakers in the 1100 range. Is it reasonable to expect $500-600 for the bp2002s?
I want well rounded speakers. I've not listened to the 2002s much, but I like that their stereo stage is much more broad. I've heard good things about the 800 series Focals... any other thoughts suggestions?
If you have the space and desire to run a mess of wires, you could use the 2002's as surrounds. You could also run full range to the sub woofers for multiple subs in the room.
