Adding Speakers to HT

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking for some input.

I've had the same 5.1 setup for a few years now and am thinking about moving to a 7.1. My current setup is as follows.

2x Front Klipsch WB-14
1 Center Klipsch WC-24
2x Side Surround WB-14
1x HSU Subwoofer

Currently, the side speakers are on the ends of my couch. I'm thinking about moving the side surrounds to the front height position and then picking up a pair of the WS-24's and utilize them as my side surrounds.

WS-24: http://www.klipsch.com/ws-24-surround-speaker

Any input on this? Would there be a discernible difference with the new side surrounds?

The only downside is that they wouldn't be evenly spaced in my living room (couch is in a corner), but I think I could adjust for this with Audyssey. I would also mount them up high on the wall and not set them on the stands which currently hold the bookshelf speakers.

Allot depends on size of your room and your reciever. Just my two cents... In a 7.1 / 7.2 system front heights make more differance than another set of surrounds.

More sound gets generated from front heights than rear. Now mind this is not a scientific analysis... Just from what I have heard from 7. systems.

For front height speakers...get direct speakers...tons out there. Keep your side surrounds where they are smile.gif

That's what I was planning on doing - moving the current side surround speakers (direct firing) to the front height position - AND then buying the WS-24's from Klipsch and using them as my side surround speakers.

I'm just wondering if utilizing a true "surround" speaker is better than what I have now - direct firing bookshelf speakers.
