Right know I have the following 3.1 system:
LR: Kef R100 C: Kef Q650c Sub: BK Monolith.
I want to add 2 surround speakers. My sofa is agains the fall, so the space is limited. The distance from wall to wall is 3m and the distance from the speakers to the hearing position in the sofa is 2.2m aprox.
I can get a pair of R100 for cheap that would match my current L/R and I would use a wall mount for them on both sides of the sofa, facing inside:
(pardon the sh*tty sofa cofer, just moved and my cats still want to scratch the hell of out the sofa leather).
I asked one guy in a music store and he recommended a
pair of Kef T301 or Kef T501 instead of the R100. As far as I know, the R100 are superior to those T series speakers, so I don't know if the recommendation is biased because the R100 would be bought elsewhere and they want to sell me their T301/T501.
Also I was reading about bipole speakers but it wasn't clear to me the advantages.
So in the end, should I buy a pair of R100, the T301/T501 as the music store guy recommended or another brand/model (bipoles, whatever).
