    Default Replacing Monitor60 speakers

    Hey guys, I'm pretty sure this is my first time posting, but I had a question about replacing a couple of my speakers.

    Currently I am running four Monitor 60's, a CS2, and PSW10 as my setup. The speakers are powered by a Denon 161. My question is what would be a good replacement for the two monitor 60's I am using as my surrounds? I've researched getting the monitor40's but I am not sure if I can find them or if they would be worth getting since they are an older series.

    Thank you,

    Arnold

    So you want smaller surround speakers, is that what your saying ?

    Yes, sorry. I forgot to say that with my living room setup I can place my left surround anywhere except right next to my couch, which is inconvenient. I would like to get bookshelf speakers and mount them to my ceiling.

    Why not get a speaker designed for surrounds like an FX 500 or fxi series ? It will give a wider surround field than a direct radiating speaker.

    Until then, you can look on Ebay, Audiogon, or your local craigslist. We have a thread somewhere too on alternative sites to shop for audio.

    Besides, I can tell you.....there aren't any in there right now.

    thanks, I checked my local craigslist and there wasn't and fx or fxi series speakers listed. I saw some on amazon, might pick a set up if I can sell mine.

    Why not get in-ceiling speakers like the RC60i or RC80i? I'm not real clear on what you mean by "mount them to the ceiling."

    I really am not comfortable cutting into my ceiling and running all the wiring. I was just going to get wall mounts and and place them in the corner.
