Surrounds for KEF fronts and Denon 3500H
 
Hello All,

Could you please help me choose surrounds and atmos speakers for my HT? I have Denon 3500H, KEF Q550 towers, R200c center, SVS PB1000 sub. I need a pair of rear and a pair of in-ceiling atmos speakers. My understanding is that these don't have to be hifi's like the KEFs. Correct me if I am wrong. What brand of speakers might pair well with the rest of the items? Is budget speakers an option?

Thank you!

You can go budget with Monoprice for the in-ceiling and surround speakers. A bit more $, with higher quality, would be the RSL CG3 and C34e in-ceiling speakers. As for matching the fronts, that is not really an issue unless you are a big gamer or into 4 channel music. Most modern receivers alter the output of the speakers to better match each other ... unless you have a huge mismatch in speaker type, you should be fine.

If you are interested in the Monoprice 8” I will give you a screaming deal.

I bought 4 of them, in the interim decided to go with Klipsch CDT 5800-ii and never took the Monoprices out of the box.

Because there was nothing faulty with the speakers, I would have had to pay 50.00 to send them back and figured I would just keep and put them to use somehow.

These are in-ceiling speakers.

I would say I spent more than I needed to, as the Atmos speakers are never under high demand. With that being said, I haven’t heard the Monoprice speakers....

It's always best to match whenever possible, but it isn't as critical as matching the front 3. Depending on your budget and where you're located, A4L have Kef in ceiling speakers at reduced prices.
