Which Speakers should I Refresh in my home theater?

Hi Folks,
I been using following speakers for my home cinema for a while now.
I saved some cash and thinking to upgrade per need. I would appreciate your recommendation:
What will you upgrade to make it better.

I have $1000 to spare for upgrade.

Currently owned 7.1 system:
Center -JBL EC25
Front - JBL L880
4 Rear - JBL Venue Series -TOUR
Sub - SAS SB12
Receiver - Yamaha RX-V673

Appreciate your feedback

Jerry

I would upgrade the sub. I wouldn't bother upgrading the mains until you have saved more money. $1k isn't going to get you a serious upgrade over anything you have now for the front stage, but it can get you a subwoofer like a Hsu VTF15h or Reaction PV 15X, either of which will be many times better than the subwoofer you have now.

I would get a L series center channel to match the fronts

And, a new subwoofer

Jerryco: Did you mean the SVS SB12? Never heard of SAS (except for the airline ... and British special forces). If you meant SVS SB12 nsd, then I don't see the great need to upgrade the subwoofer unless your room volume is well over 1,500 cu.ft., then a ported sub may serve you better.
