Now THERE is an upgrade path - not wires, not new speakers, not new electronics, just a new house! I love it :)

Running my F208s as side surrounds (I know, overkill) off the JBL Synthesis SDA8300, which is a digital amp. Works great.

FYI I am just running the F208s as side surrounds since my theater is also...

Quoted for emphasis. This is a Pro piece, designed for mixers in one position at the expense of other positions (at least, that's the best understanding I have right now).

M105s or M106s are ideal for ATMOS or music surround duty. If you are looking for surrounds for more basic 5.1 / 7.1 surround, the S206 bi-pole *may* work better. Since everything is moving toward...
