    Default Best speakers for height setup.?

    Hey everyone,, I'm new here and have recently bought a house with a HT already built. I decided to upgrade all the components to my liking and I'm looking for some advice on either height or wide speakers. He's what I have:

    Onkyo tx-nr 818 receiver
    Polk Audio Tsi 500's (front)
    Polk Audio CS 20 (center)
    Polk Audio F/XiA6 (surrounds)
    Oppo bdp 103 blue-ray player
    PS3
    Epson Home Cinema 5020UBe projector
    100" elite screen (thinking of going larger)

    My room is 22x12 with the screen at the center of the 12" wall. Have been debating on going with a set of height speakers to increase the soundstage. Any recommendations on what speakers to go with? I look forward to hearing some ideas from here. I love the sound I get from polk. (I've got a 2010 road glide custom with 600 watts pushing 6 polk audio marine grade speakers and they rock!)

    If you have TSi 500 mains, TSi 100s should be fine for the height channels. Always stick with the same family if you can.
    Equipment list:
    Onkyo TX-NR3010 9.2 AVR
    Emotiva XPA-3 amp
    Polk RTi70 mains, CSi40 center, RTi38 surrounds, RTi28 rears and heights
    SVS 20-39CS+ subwoofer powered by Crown XLS1500
    Oppo BDP-93 Blu-ray player
    DarbeeVision DVP5000 video processor
    Epson 8500UB 1080p projector
    Elite Screens Sable 120" CineWhite screen

    Yep do not skimp on the 2z channels, many people used to believe that it did not matter and you could use any old speakers. I loved my 2z channels with my onkyo and watched terminator salvation and was just impressed with the info coming from them and it really did make for a better experience

    There is differing opinions. But some say front wides adds more than front heights. Front wides fill in and widen your front stage.
    Front Heights as is obvious fills the sound stage upward.
    I agree, you want to stay in the same serious of speakers to keep the sound tone in the same range.
    If you decide to add front wides you could use another pair of TSi 500 or even a pair of TSi 400.
    For front Heights the TSi 100's should work fine.
    Panasonic PT AE7000U Projector, Denon 4520CI Receiver, Polk CSi A6 Center, Polk RTI A5 Fronts, Polk Tsi 400 Front Wides, Polk Fxi A6 Sides, Polk RTi A3 Rear, PS3, 100" Apex Cinewhite screen.
