If you had an additional $1500, would you rather:

  • Get dual Rythmik F12's and get rid of the HSU

I'd like some advice for my bedroom HT build. My bedroom dimensions are 11x13.

This is what I currently have (3.1 setup):

Energy CB-5 for LR

Energy CC-10 for Center

Hsu STF-2

Pioneer VSX1019AH-K receiver

I'm upgrading to 7.2 setup:

Acoustic Sierra 2's for LCR

Acoustic HTM-200's for surrounds

Please see the poll. Comments below are welcome!

(EDIT: Forgot to mention, the dual F12's cost around $1800 when you count shipping. The STF-2 is on sale for $375 right now with shipping included.)

As a side note, when I really turn up the volume on my CB-5's for 2-channel listening, they sound somewhat raspy and irritating, so I have to turn the volume back down. Will upgrading to the Sierras solve that problem or make it worse? The Sierra's have a lower sensitivity (87dB) compared to the CB-5's (89dB) but they are much larger in size...not sure if that makes a difference. I want to be able to listen near reference levels. Wondering if I need a better amp or receiver to do that.
