Now with this room configuration, what do you guys think would be best for surrounding sides? Rs41 or rs42? And regarding the center channel, if I were to get a higher center like an rc62, wouldn't it overpower my rf42s?
Based on that drawing, I would hate to put up crown moulding in that room...

I would go with the RS42II's for its wide dispersion technology and keep the backs to complete a 7.1. You have a couch on the left side, so with the RS42II's, they will sound better (IMO) to the person who is sitting there.

If you get a larger CC, does your Onkyo have audio calibration technology? If so, it will compensate when it does it's thing.

But if you get a larger CC, then you might as well get larger RFII's. Then you'll need larger RSII's. And probably larger rears.

Lol by the time I do that the wife will throw me to the dog house, lol. This all started because I went by frys and I saw the last two rf 42 iis being sold for 100 a piece, after doing 30 minutes of research on my phone (without leaving the speakers sides, afraid someone would beat me to it, lol) I decided I couldn't pass the deal up seeing how everybody else was selling them for 239 a piece. Then I said, might as well get a sub. Now here I am, with "might as well get surrounds and center" in my head, lol. I think I will stick with the rc42 for center, and get the rs42 for surrounds. And if I understood your recommendation, you are saying there is no point in upgrading the surround backs, correct?

Also, acoustic sound design is willing to sell me each rs42 for 199 and the rc42 for 199 also, does that sound good?
