1. Is there any drawback to using centers as LRs (vertically).

2. Would I be better off using 2 R5bi bookshelf speakers for LR instead? ($125/pr)

2a. What about two R55ti towers?

3. I will be getting a subwoofer for my setup but am still undecided. I can get an RBH S12 for $350. Is this a good deal/worth it?

Thanks.
1. Compare frequency range on those speakers. Dedicated centers will more often than not lack the full range of traditional left and right channel speakers.

2a. Those look like great speakers, assuming you can still find a pair. I've even considered a pair of those myself. Note the RBH website: New replacement line coming. It might be worth it to wait and see what they replace those with. Finally, if you are a music lover like me, then you're going to want a pair of full range fronts (maybe even with a sub), for listening to music.

3. Just my opinion, but I think everyone should audition all speakers before buying.

I have a chance to buy RBH SX-661 L/R and the matching center for $1500 (would have MSRP'd at $2700 for the 3). I currently have a pair of KEF LS50s and am keeping an eye out for an r200c (center) in white to match, or another single LS50. I'm sure the RBH setup would blow the LS50 out of the water for HT, but what about music? Music is more important for me.

The RBH Signature series speakers are great for music. I have a pair of SX-61's paired with a SX-12 sub solely for music listening in my front room and love them.
