Ive upgraded my system to a pair of Dynaudio Focus 160 and a center 210 C running off a Denon x4000 (will be getting a 3 channel amp soon). I would like to hook up my old Jewel Cube speakers for the surround and rear channels.
It been difficult to get information on whether this is doable. The sales guy at bose said go for it. While, tech support at Bose said no trade it in for an upgrade. I know the Jewel Cube's need to be hooked up to the acoustimass module for proper crossover. But I was wondering if that was really important for the front main channels and since I wanted to run them as surround and rears maybe it was doable.
I have the adapters to hook up the bose speakers to regular speaker wire. I even spoken to the guy who sold me the Dynaudio and he said it was fine to hook them up. The Dynaudio's are 4 ohm while Ive read the Jewel Cubes could be anywhere from 2-8 ohms...
Kindly suggest something, that will outperform Bose interns of size and performance.
Price point similar.
Requirement is to enjoy surround sound as well as good music. Music varies form Jazz, rock to pop. In short need an all rounder.
I have got a Subfwoofer, Parts Express - Dayton Audio SPA1000 1000W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier & Dayton Audio TIT400C-4 15" Titanic Mk III Subwoofer 4 Ohm. All though I cannot make it sound right. I have used regular wood enclosure, with no inside lining. If there is something you can recommend please feel free.

I can understand if you don't want to spend £1800 on rears, £1800 on sides, so just go down the Dynaudio line, or get another brand that is affordable
I use four of these as side surrounds, the second pair cost £90. Tons better than Bose crap
