Hello everybody.
I need some help !!

Here's what I have I have the energy C-series set up C-300 tower C50 center and C50b-1 surround.
My sub is a pa 12sub. I also have an older pair of JBL 4212b control monitor that spec at
45 hz to 15k hz and a pair of Peavey criterion ll PA loundspeakersmade for clubs, with a sound spec of 70 hz to20khz the peaveys have a large horn tweater. I just bought a denon 2312 av receiver to replace a pioneer 1018 ah receiver.

The question is I really don't want to use the small bookshelf c50 surround speakers. I have tried both jbl's and peaveys as fronts. The Jbl has a better low, peaveys has a better high end. They both sound ok the jbl has a better punch, but I set it up as small so I think that dosn't matter muc, except when I play some good ole rock n roll. I have read that the fronts and center all should match.

Here are my options;

1.solution.(not sure which one for the rears, probably the jbl since it goes down lower. The sub, correct me if I am wrong utlizes the lfe signal and assists the fronts only with the bass. I would get some stands to raise the JBL's up a little. Maybe the peaveys would be better because the freq response is higher. I am not sure which way to go on that.

2.Put the peavy or jbl in the front and the c-300 in the surround, the only problem is The center speaker isn't gonna match the jbl or peavey, maybe buy a jbl center. Not sure which one to buy.

3 I do have a few dollars left for maybe 2 front speakers I saw the c70s at frys for 299 apeice, and Energy V6.2 floorstanding speaker 2.5-way Veritas Series floorstanding speaker for Vans. What would you all do? I am really not sure. Those speakers won't last long so Need to figure this is out quick. I also saw some polk 70's for 299.00 a peice at ebay. Too many decision too little time. Help!

I think maybe buying the c 70 or the v6.2 veritas is the way to go, but I am not sure which of those 2 sets of speakers to buy, or maybe someone has another choice.

Thank you for any input!
