    Default What Speaker Should be Used for 6.1 Rear Surround?

    hi guys,
    quick question, almost got my home surround sytem complete but was confused on what I should use for the rear, was planning on using a matching fxi50 but did some research and found out it was a bad idea. Can somebody recommend a speaker for the Rear 6 channel? Thanks
    Currently my setup so far
    Onkyo 6.1 Receiver
    Polk rt1000's Left & Right Front
    Polk cs400I Center
    Polk fxi50's Left & Right Rear

    Typically you use another center speaker, voice matched to your other speakers.

    For your system, I'd try to find on of the following:
    CS400i
    CS245i
    CSi40
    CSi30

    The first two will match your front speakers a little better, and the second two will match your rear speakers a little better.

    And welcome to the forum.

    If your receiver has the ability to power 2 surround back speakers,I would suggest rt35i's.

    I had basically the same system minus the Onkyo and found the rt35is to be perfect for this duty.

    If it only has one output then another cs400i would be perfect.

    I would also recommend matching your center channel speaker if you are going 6.1. If it was 7.1 I would throw a couple of bookshelf speakers back there.

    I use twin CS245i's in the rear for 7.1 - a lot of speaker for the money if you can still find them floating around on close-out.
