hi, what should i use for rears in a 5.1 set up, fx500's or rt800's? i have rt2000i fronts and a cs350ls center.
thanks for your opinion!

Try both and see what sounds best, Me personally it seems a waste to put a large 800 in the back unless your listening to 5 channel stereo all the time or something. But then somepeople don't like the fx style speakers for rears, they rather have direct fireing like me.. and also i assume you have space for proper placement of a large rt800 in the rear? things to think about
Need a bit more information.
What source are you running on
What about placement, do both speakers have room to breath and take advantage of the listening space?
If you have both a capable source and room - I would go with the type of sound that pleases you most.
The FX would offer more of a spacious backround, but wont be direct. Where as the 800 will emphasize more of a narrow, but powerfull sweetspot.
If you can, try to demo both in your home.
