    Default Rear Speakers

    HI,
    I have a 10+ year old pair of LS70's. I need rear speakers. Here is my problem. The Mains are about 6.5 feet from my recliner. The rear's I have now are Mirage, with a 4" woofer and 1" (?) Tweeter.

    They Mirages are about 7' above my head. I am in a small room and when I play my SACD's or any other SACD I don't get the surround that I want from behind. It just seems to weak. I was told to purchase the LS7i's, but they are out of my pocketbook range. What can I turn to or am I stuck?

    My wife want's what ever I get to be in white like the Mirages, but I have told her that I will get something other than black so it will look nice. Anyway, I need some advice. I personally think Polk is the best speaker ever made, but then again it is the best speaker I have ever owned. Thanks for any imput. - greg

    Going w/ white pretty much narrows down your choices. Have you thought about some "in walls?" The "ABxxx" line would be some nice ones to get. If you can go w/ black, some RT5's, RT7's would match pretty well w/ your LS's. Good luck and welcome to the forum.

    Cool

    if you can try and position them so they are approx. 2' above ear level or aim them towards your listening position or adjust up the surround level on your receiver
