They would have to order the CS and RS's in, and don't even have prices for those. There's a few other local dealers I'm gonna shoot emails to see what they can do.
It was mentioned that I can get the RF 7II's on here for a few hundred more. Is that total, or each speaker? Aren't those about $2600 for a pair?
you are doing a 5.1 set-up right ?
The back wall is Not really an ideal place to have side surrounds RS or RB's will not do well there.
Is the main listening position a sofa ?
on the back wall ?
if so then they will not work well in that position , best position is ,if is a back wall M L P , just forward of the M L P on the side walls maybe 2 feet forward from the back wall .
IN ANY CASE. don't permanently install any speaker until you try each position 1st to hear how they sound. What looks good on paper is not always what good in real world sound .As all rooms are different .There are No set in stone rules on placement but the back wall placement does not work too well at all for side surrounds . I just say this from My own experience of putting way too many holes in walls that didn't work out ,
been there ,done that , patched a bunch of holes ....
there's a bunch of real friendly guys on this thread who are more than willing to help you out .
rule of thumb the horns should all be evenly set about ear level thought out the system . if you have to have a pair up high just be able to aim them down slightly to the line of sight @ the M L P
laser pointers work well for this . Good Luck & have Fun
