I am going to throw this out there because I am in the middle of deciding on which direction to go with surround upgrade. My guess would be that I could post this question in each of the three brand threads and pretty much predict how that would go, so I thought I would start a new thread.
Currently I have three JTR Noesis 212HT speakers for LCR. My surrounds are Klipsch RS-62II's for the side and RB-61's for back duty.
I want something bigger and something that will keep up with my JTR speakers. Also the idea of going with a direct radiating speaker is something I have been wanting to do.
Here are the three options I am considering:
4 - JBL 8350A's
4 - JTR Slanted 8's
2 - Klipsch KPT-12-VB
2 - Klipsch KPT -1201
*The last option is looking tougher and tougher due to the size/weight of the speaker. Mounting might pose to much of a problem for me.
*The JBL's are the least expensive option and mounting would be simpler
*Already have JTR speakers, so I know how good they are..plus I would have a complete setup from one brand. They would also be about twice the price than the JBL option..
I have reached out to several folks on here for advice and all of it has been good.
Looking for anybody else that might be able to help.
Thank you in advance.
