Speaker dilemma - Existing B&W LCR and need advice for the remaining configuration
I need help with my next move on building and designing my home theater. I currently have an older set of B&W 604 S3 L and R floor standing speakers and matching center channel. I have not purchased anything for the side or rear yet and I am looking for advice and I have many questions.
Question 1: I was looking at getting all Klipsch for the side and rears but I have been told it will sound weird and awkward to mix with B&W in the front. Is that true?
My plan was to design a 7.2.2 in the end with my 100" ALR screen and Epson 5040ub projector.
My proposed plan: 2x RP-402S as sides, 2x 500SA as rears, and 2x CDT-5800-C II as in ceiling atmos.
Objective: I want this to sound the best possible within my budget. I am not attached to the LCR B&W speakers I have already.
Question 2: Should I sell my B&W and get a full Klipsch system?
Question 3: Will 2x 500SA work as true rear surrounds or are they really meant to be atmos only. Would I be better off doing 4 RP-402S for ML,MR,RL,RR?
As you can see I need help and I am open to other ideas/brands. My budget is ~$2000. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
