Hello, my current set up is onkyo 709, tsi400, cs10, tsi200, and 2 klipsch sub10. My room is long 23' x 14'. I use my system for music more than movies and I like listening to music in all channel stereo. My thought is to add some owm3 as front hieghts since I have an extra pair. Think its worth it? Will the new speaks just steal wattage and have a negative affect?

My room is 22 x 19, with the TV/front soundstage on one of the 22ft walls. My system is mainly movies/TV, rather than music. I am going with front heights (or Presence, I guess, because I have a Yamaha AVR) because I read a bunch of threads suggesting that you probably get more information from front heights than rear surrounds - at least as far as HT goes.

Not sure if the answer would be the same for music.

Boston Acoustics Classic series L/C/R + front presence; Fluance XLBP Bipole surrounds; 2 x PSA XS15se
Yamaha RX-A3040; 3 x Emotiva XPA-100; Emotiva BAS-X A500
Oppo BDP-103D
