For the rears, I see no problem going with different speakers, just because of the limited audio information. For the sides in a 7.1 setup, I'd stick to the same brand as the fronts.

1. Your room is considered on the low end of a medium sized room for subwoofers at 1,944 cu.ft. (1,500 to 3,000 cu. ft.). That's good. It means you don't need a $1,500 plus subwoofer.
2. The...

Nothing is worse than buying speakers, taking them home, and finding out you don't like them. I will assume that the RC-70s are now well broken in, and if you still don't like the sound, by all...

Unless someone has auditioned both of these speakers, it would be difficult to compare them. There was some discussion on the RC-70s here on AVS awhile ago, so perhaps this will help answer some...

That's a great price (Infinity sale price back in 2012 was $400 for the p363). I think the Infinity speakers are 4 Ohm speakers, meaning it may take an AVR with a good amp to drive them. In either...

Yes, it is doable to get a left, right and center channel, plus a subwoofer for $500. I'd avoid sound bars and all-in-one systems. Another gentleman (actually several) had the same question and the...

For such a large volume space, and being open, we could fix you up with a great $5,000 system ;). However, at $500, my suggestions still stand. Read the reviews. Research and audition as many...

Would I? No. That doesn't make the VTF-2 Mk3 a bad deal for $400. It's probably an impressive sub, but I haven't auditioned it. The only Hsu sub I auditioned (30-day home trial) was the ULS-15. ...

Whether any subwoofer will work for you or not depends upon the total volume a subwoofer sees. If we are talking about a sealed room that isn't too much over 2,000 cu. ft., a single $500 sub could...
