I don't want to start a new thread for such a similar setup, I have a pair of 65T's, a 25C, and a PSW505 on there way, but I have no idea what to use for surrounds. The obvious choice, given this lineup, is adding a pair of 35B's for surrounds. Would those work well? Are there similarly priced ($150ish) "real" surround speakers (bi/dipole)?

I have settled on Denon for my receiver, either the 1713 or the 2113CI (but only if a hefty discount is still available will I actually consider the latter!). I already have my Epson 8350, my first projector, and I'm v excited!

OP, sorry if I have hijacked your thread frown.gif I can move it if necessary.

For a pair there isn't one in that price range. you can find a pair of Polk FXi A3's on ebay open box for $300 a pair

Can't go wrong with either reciever. The 1713 is the barebones audiophiles on a budget dream with its price and Audyssey MuliEQ XT. the 2113 brings some more features to the table with slightly more power.

Hi new here,

I just picked up a new onkyo tx-nr515 and am running Bose 501 v series with Polk r15s. I just order a Polk cs20 and figured I would upgrade the front speakers and then maybe rears. The room is pretty large with. 20' ceiling. On newegg the 65t are 139 at the moment. I'm not looking to spend much money on speakers right now because I just bought a new house but really want a decent stereo set. I have a aiwa 150rms subwoofer it is supinely loud so I probably won't be changing that for a while. Is 140. Good deal for the 65t and would that cs20 work out with in also what rears would recommend?

Move the Bose 501s to surround duty for the time being, save your money a little longer, and replace the Aiwa subwoofer. Is it the TS W150? If you have a big room like that with high ceilings, a better sub could make a good difference, and you are probably driving that sub very hard anyway (might not survive for long).

What would you recommend for a sub? And yes my good man it is a TS W150. Also, do you think the 65t are a good choice ?

Given the front 65T's / centre 25C speakers, would the 35B's work well as 5.1 surrounds (I think it'd be an imbalance to spend $300 on rears)? Any alternatives?

Sure. Get the 65Ts. That's a good deal for that price. Then do some research on the AVS subwoofer forum and figure out what would be the best sub for your size room and listening habits.

Yes the Monitor 35b's would be the best and the cheapest option.

When you get more money you can always buy the FXi's for side surrounds and Monitor 35b's as rear surrounds. Get the Monitor 35b's on your budget you aren't really missing much

How do the 35b's compare to the r15s? Is it worth switching over from the r15s to the 34bs?

The Monitor 35b's are far superior to the R15's the R15s are cheapest speakers Polk makes and they are horrible in my opinion.

Of course my sub came with the port loose so have to fix that tonight. I am hoping to wire everything up this evening and give it a test run. Only have the front 3.1 system and need to order some in-ceiling rears soon.
