This is going to be my first setup, trying to stay under budget (all speakers were under ~40% black friday discount) Is this setup Ok?
What would you do differently here? (Should I use a real center speaker, and use 2Xq150's as rear's instead?)
While the Q650c is a little expensive it is a very good speaker, it adds dynamics and gives you a fuller sound. You'll get very clear and detailed sound and dialogue. A single Q150 will work well as a center by providing clear dialogue, but won't have the fullness of sound you'd get with the larger 3 way center. I'm not sure how a single Q150 would work as a surround speaker since it's something I've never considered trying, though I think having L&R surrounds might sound better.
