Indeed bought the onkyo nr-616 a couple of weeks ago, just been trying to find the best set up for my situation..by "work" i guess i meant would the sound be pretty decent as both the fh56-bar and pl-66's have great reviews but i haven't heard of anyone using the setup.

I was going to use them as a 7.1 ...i thought they acted as two seperate speakers like a bipole speaker?..thats why i was mounting them on the rear because i thought i could use them as my right and left surround as well as the rears....guess im confused lol...im sure u get what im trying to accomplish just a simple 5.1 or 7.1 system without from floor standing speakers and no IN-walls.. but thank you for letting me know that..just getting into this and have been spending hours online looking things up..i feel like its a second job creating a home theater lol

well there is not a lot of space left after my component shelf and subwoofer take up most of the room..under the tv is going to be a fireplace so i didn't want to overload that wall and my wife is pretty firm on if im going to do it just no FRONT floor standing speakers..thats why i was thinking the fh56-bar ...also my beautiful word doc of a sketch isn't completely to scale lol so don't mind me and my drafting skills lol.my walls are completely open and im trying to figure out my speaker placement so there are ZERO wires showing..its just extremely hard to plan a system with no speakers and no walls yet..
