Good day everyone. I recently bought a Denon AVR1613 receiver. My home has a family room with 12 foot ceilings, and is open as it only has two walls and the rest is an open floor plan which flows to the kitchen, etc.

The house is prewired for surround sound in the ceiling for all speakers and the sub is prewired on the right wall of the room. I have been looking at speakers and came across the Klipsch CDT-5800 CII on sale at a local store ($250 each).

  1. I would like your opinion on how well these would work in my situation?
  2. How well would they match up to my receiver?
  3. Could I use another of these speakers as a center channel? if not, which would you recommend?
  4. What subwoofer would you recommend as well?


Thank you

1. Since the house is already prewired for in-ceiling speakers all you need to do is decide if you want to rewire the house to run a different type of speaker. Where is all the equipment going? Do you still have the option to do a traditional left/center/right in the front of the room? Do you want to?

2. The 5800s would work fine with your receiver.

3. You can use 5 of them for surround sound.

4. What is your budget?

What do you by rewire for different type of speaker? Are you referring to non in-ceiling speakers? If so, I would prefer to not rewire anything and buy in-ceiling speakers.

Not sure what you mean by where is all my equipment going? What does that matter?

I don't understand a lot of your questions and what they have to do with my original questions. Can you elaborate on why you are asking them so I can better understand.

I don't really have a budget set in mind but as you can tell by the price range I am asking about, I don't want to spend thousands on the setup.

He meant that if you're going to use the existing wiring that's OK, but that limits you to in-ceiling speakers. Serious HT systems don't use in-ceiling speakers. But if you're not serious about it that's OK too.
