HT Rear Surround Feedback Request
I am considering adding a pair of rear surround to my home theater setup to move from a 5.1 configuration to a 7.1 configuration.
My current 5.1 speaker setup consists of a Hsu Research VTF-15H Powered Subwoofer, a pair of TSi500s up front (bi-amped), a CS20 center, and two TSi200's for surrounds. The TSi's I currently have are all cherry finish.
The audio area is an enclosed HT: 12.5' x 21' x 8' carpeted basement room with 2"-4" acoustic panels on walls & ceiling. I have a Yamaha RX-A2020 receiver and the room is used 80-90% for movies and the rest for music.
The seating position is located approximately 17' from the screen. The TSi200's are mounted to the side walls just above and behind the seating position (~18').
The rear wall has a ~5' door way on one side leaving me effectively a 2.5'-3' area to center the rear surrounds. I have looked at the TSi100's, TSi200s, OWM3/5 as well as the RC55i (space limited between stud).
I have been bouncing back and forth between each of the options I've listed above; but, I am leaning towards the TSi200s. Before I pull the trigger on anything, I wanted to get some feedback on other's recommendations.
Thanks in advance.
