So...what is everyone using for their rear surround speakers? Would you go with them again if you had the choice? What did you hear that sounded better?

What height do you have them at? Wall mount? Ceiling mount?

Did you just match up your front sounds or go with something else? If you went with something else...why?

Presently using take classic, but will install ascend acoustic htm200se this wknd. Yeah I would go with the takes again, they're a bargain imo. The ascends sound better

Takes sound pretty darn good considering how much they cost. The Ascends are in another league

Mine are @ 7' high, wall mounted, 8' diagonal (behind and to the side) of listening position.

They were matched to the take classic htib system, but are now just buying time until I have time to install the ascends.

Did you go with the standard tweeter? What made you decided to go with the Ascends?

I think there is only one choice of tweeter on the htm200se. The seas tweeter. I went with the ascend HTM because of their size, acoustic performance in tricky mounting situations, reputation, and price. Very happy with their sound
