Aha. Well, if you bought the Q900's for 2 channel stereo then it was an excellent purchase :) For HT just make sure and use the Q600c as your center.

+1 Three identical speakers LCR across the front is the ideal.

(If you're room/space accommodates it you could use the 6th speaker as single-center-rear for a 6.1 setup.)

+1 Also you might consider a third Q100 as a center (it's uses a single coax driver so, unlike most speakers, you can lay it on it's side if you need to). Three identical speakers LCR is the ideal.
