Sticking with 5.1 for now, advice on surrounds?
So, after messing around with speaker stands, available wall mount locations and where my seating is I decided against upgrading from 5.1 to 7.1. First, stand placement proved to be annoying because I kept knocking one over since it was near the path to get behind seating to where my equipment rack is at. Second, the only wall placement to the sides of the seating would put the side surrounds and back surrounds just shy of 2 feet from eachother.
So I currently have a pair budget Klipsch Synergy S1s.
I honestly have no idea if they are bipolar/dipolar. Since I am pretty much stuck with keeping them on the back wall, I was wondering if I should stick with these or perhaps look for something better designed for placement on the back wall. Really can't afford to spend much, if I do need to replace the speakers any recommendations for < $150.00?
I can pretty much mount these anywhere along the back wall...except for corners.
