Mr. Chop, keep in mind that even in the big theaters, the surrounds aren't that crazy. The JBL's used a 3 way design with an 8" woofer. The QSC theater surrounds used a 10" Eminence woofer and a compression driver smaller than the B&C DE10.
Very cool, thank you.
I know I am going way out here, I am just so stuck on the matching waveguide/CD for the surrounds. I would love to think that I could run the Sentinels, and possibly more of them for surrounds,they are fantastic, but I can't get past this in my head. I have my woofers, CDs and waveguides on order, which I am happy about. By ordering everything I have pinned myself to committing to the project as a whole and not just the mains. We won't ever use the potential of the surrounds,I'm sure, but I will not ever wonder if I'm missing out on some minute improvement either. It's much less for the output and more for the matching of the mains.
I still wonder if there is a smaller waveguide that would allow me to use the lower freq ability of the 4594, and offer an easier to fit form for surrounds. Even with this though, I hate to think that I'd be giving up any performance by using a different waveguide, and just to save a little space. My columns are gonna be really big, but I am going to try to recess them into the outer wall framing enough that they are effectively a foot deep, but only stick out into the room 7 or 8 inches.

what would the shark be used for other than delay?
A hundred bones per channel for optimized surrounds sounds like a steal to me! I'm also currious what else the shark offers. I was looking at the QSC dsp322 and it appears that I can use them for all this, plus my active xovers etc. It seems like there are a lot of options out there, and the behringer seems to be viable too. I am trying to figure out exactly what, if anything, it may give up to a unit like the qsc...gonna keep reading
