You shouldn't. Unless you go listen to new Reference 3 or 5 and are astonished, keep them!

System includes KEF R500 floor standing, R200C center, R100 surrounds, SVS SB2000 subwoofer, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 turntable w/ Sumiko Pearl cartridge, Bluesound Vault, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer, MCS System cassette deck. The last 2 items are dust collectors but will work if asked.

Hey lads I stumbled across a few THX In-Wall Speaker builds noticed they were using the CI200RR-THX as surrounds in boxes. How do you think this setup would go with three Kef CI5160RL-THX as the LCR. It would save me some heartache with trying to make pillars to fit the CI3160rl-THX as surrounds. Or should I just keep the 3160's LOL.

I am torn between building 1 of 2 different home theater setups and looking for some opinions on a 7.2 vs an Atmos setup. My first setup could use Kef IQ8DS dipoles for the sides and rear of a 7.2. The other setup could use Kef 5001 monopole speakers for sides, rears and height speakers. The room is not overly large (15x15) but am looking at the build to optimize sound quality and to enhance movies/sports. In addition to the fronts (IQ9) and center (IQ6C) I have IQ8DS x4 and HTS5001 x9. Has anyone had any experience with a similar setup?

Center Channel: Kef IQ6C
Fronts: Kef IQ9 x2
Subwoofers: Velodyne DLS4000R x2

Sides/Rears: Kef IQ8DS or Kef 5001

Hatlesschimp...keep the Ci3160's and stick with the plan. You've got the best of the best with the complete set you assembled, just use it in the appropriate manner and revel in it.

kdmtuscani, you've got the ideal room size to take advantage of the iQ8ds as surrounds. I might not use them also as rear speakers, those should be a direct speaker. My son's system is similar and having his Q800ds on the side walls just above and slightly behind the listening position results in an amazing effect. His rear speakers are (for now) a pair of the slightly older iQ10, firing forward.

System includes KEF R500 floor standing, R200C center, R100 surrounds, SVS SB2000 subwoofer, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 turntable w/ Sumiko Pearl cartridge, Bluesound Vault, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer, MCS System cassette deck. The last 2 items are dust collectors but will work if asked.
