Multiple Samsung Shape speakers

Hi,
Does anyone knows if I can use more than 2 samsung shape speaker to create a surround system?
My idea was to have 5 of them to create a 4.1 system:
2 front
2 rear
1 as a sub

I already have 2 of them but my room is large and I would like to try to cover it all.
I already tried with a sound bar HW H750 but it doesn't fill all the space.

Thank you,
Roberto

I believe that the Samsung Shape speaker is a full range monaural speaker. I am not sure how you would feed any single speaker a specific channel of a multi-channel audio feed.


Also, this would get very expensive very fast.


There are many sound bars and many small speakers that could fill a very large room with sound for the price of a single Shape speaker with much cleaner sound.

You can get an LG soundbar (LAS751M, LAS851M or top tier LAS950M) + a couple of NP8340 (H3) speakers for rear. It's a wireless multiroom system like Sonos (but with much more features and codecs, like DTS support, Hi-Res audio BT, Wi-Fi, all sorts of online music services etc). It can also be configured as multi channel 5.1 system. Overall it's much more developed system then Samsung Shape.

Roberto, I didn't say wireless, but small. I was thinking a small powered speaker like the eMotiva 4s or 5s. If you look at Steve Guttenberg's reviews on cnet.com you can see a number of small powered speakers that would give you marvelous sound. If you like good room filling sound with good sound, investigate soundbars from Sony and Pioneer which are ahead of the curve as to sound and are less expensive than a single Shape speaker.
