The BIC seem like the closest to klipsch without the klipsch price, I'll more than likely try them, there is a couple higher end speaker stores closer to jacksonville, I'll see if I can demo them
$77/piece is generally the sale price for the 52s new. On occasion you can find the c22 for $50 but the usual sale is $77.
Yes. Most people consider the Bics the budget Klipsch. In facy I think thats what Bic was aiming for.
My copy and paste doesnt work any more or I would give you a link. The classifieds are here. Look again.

Question...what are some options for mounting the PL-66? I know it has the two mounts on the back but my back wall isn't in a good spot (about 10 feet back from where I want the speakers).

Most speaker stands/mounts are all single hole and won't work. Can I just mount it on the side walls? I fear I would lose the directional.

Thoughts?

Going by THX, I should put them beside the viewer...that would be...the most ideal solution.

What are people's thoughts on the PL-66 surrounds? I just picked up the BIC center PL-28II and excited to test it out.

I'm running the 3.1 right now, having trouble with the PL-66's. Not because of the speaker, but because of the room. My couch is against the back wall, and it's open on the right side. I can easily mount the SL to the side wall but since it's open on the right, unless I buy a tall speaker stand I can't figure out a way to mount it. Since the speaker is so wide, most wall mounts won't work properly if I put it on and swivel 90 degrees to face the couch.

Any thoughts?

I have 4 PL-66's. I use a pair for rear surrounds and a pair for side surrounds. Obviously the rear's are wall mounted and the sides I have 'freely' sitting on my old Aperion side surround stands. If you have kids than it's not a good idea but I don't so they are fine for me. I love my 7.2 set-up!

I have a couple of Sanus stands that are nice and sturdy but the 66's are so big that i don't trust them without something tying it down.

I have a kid and another one on the way.

Any more ideas of good ways to mount freely? I may just build a box to raise the stand higher (get it about 2-3' over my ears when sitting), screw the stand down to it, and tie down the speaker...might be my only option.

Something someone suggested to consider is using Velcro to adhere them to the stands. That way you're not drilling into things (if you want to avoid that).

BluTack works great too. But with kids you have to worry about knocking the whole stand over. Not much help there.
