Hello Everyone,

I'm in the process of a small upgrade to my Onkyo HT-R540 setup I bought 5 or 6 years ago. While I'm waiting for the TX-NR818 receiver to go on sale, I decided to replace a few speakers. I have a KLIPSCH RW-12D sub on its way and today I bought 2 Pioneer SP-FS52 for the fronts and a Pioneer SC-C22 as the center.

I was wondering if it would make a difference if I took the old fronts, crappy Onkyo SKF-540F speakers, and put them in place of the crappy Oknyo SKM-540S surrounds. Would there be any improvement, or would it just be pointless?

I will be buying better surrounds in the next few months, just wondering if I should make this switch in the meantime.

Any guidance is appreciated!

I would use the best speakers available for surrounds...and then replace when you can!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub
