Hi all... Looking to upgrade my ProCinema 800 speakers to Muthos 8's or 9's in the front and UIW RSS IIIs for the rear. The center channel will go from a Procenter 1000 to a procenter 2000 (Thans the biggest speaker I can fit in my built in). Do you see any problems with this config? Is timbre matching shot?
I suspect you won't have a huge problem with timbre matching with that setup, although the you may wish to go with the UIW RSS II's, since they are a closer match for the 8's (they use very similar drivers).
However, the timbre matching across the front is far more critical than trying to precisely match front to back, so I think you will be fine.
I use Mythos 8's as my rear surrounds and UIW RSS IIs as side surrounds and have found them to work extremely well together--pretty seamless really.
Finally, I would suggest having strong sub(s) with that setup (and set your receiver to "small") to bring out their best.
