    Default Rear Surround Help

    Hey guys I need some help on what to buy for my surrounds. My brother wanted my RT10's so I gave in after 6 months of nagging.
    My problem is the back of my room is all windows, sides included. So I will have to stay with towers or use stands. I also want to have a full range signal being sent to the surrounds.
    So after looking at CC. I came up with two options.

    1. Rt1000i $699 a pair
    2. F/x 500 with 21" stands with a PSW450 $750 for both (the F/x500's are open box but perfect).
    With the stands the 500's would be about the same height as the 1000's.

    Any suggestions or options I'm not seeing. Thanks

    My current setup.

    Mains RT2000's
    Center CS1000P
    Sub PSW1200

    either of those options look fine. do you need another sub paired with that 1200? were you thinking of using the f/x's along the side or rear wall? if you wanted to save a little $, you could go with the rt800i's for the rears, don't know if that would be enough bass for you though....:D

    I plan on using the 500's along the rear wall, we have end tables on the sides I could use, but that wife factor is tough when you ask her to move a lamp or phone locations. As for the bass the 1200 is great but more bass is always good my room is also 17X22. and I sit 14' from my mains. The 800's are something to consider, do most of you set them as large. They are only 499 a pair right now.

    i have 800's up front, and yes, they are set to large! they sound great! if you are going to put the f/x500's on the rear wall, i would suggest a floor standing speaker over the f/x in bi/pole mode. (just my preference) i would prefer the f/x's in a dipole side wall set-up. go for the 1000's if you're a bass freak, unless you got the cash to go 800's with a sub (if you think you need it).... of course you do, right?:D

    BTW, sweet set-up!!!

    thanks for your input . I think I will spend my lunch hour looking at speakers. That is if I get to CC, all this Olympic traffic has been fun. I work right across the street from the medals plaza downtown. It took 50min. to go the last block this morning. To bad for me that light rail doesn't run at 4am.
    I has been fun to see all the medals given out from our windows .

    No luck on driving on my lunch hour. I will go tonight.

    Juice,
    Yes we had tickets to the speed skating on saturday. I was great. It is weird to have all these people in my home town. Yes the bars are packed, the new sports bar down the road from my house is nutts.

    Went to the store sunday night and a Film crew from Asia was filming how we do our food shopping. Not your usual beer run.

    I will post my speaker findings tonight. Thanks

    Well minor set back tonight. I look over at one of my new 1000i surrounds. No Green light!! No Bass!! So I check the power. OK . Check the wiring and settings. OK. Then I go to move it out in the room. Clunk Clunk!!!! from the inside.. Houston we have a problem. Something must be wrong with powered woofer. So it is going back in the morning. I called the store they have 2 left. I will check the new one at the store to make sure I safe. O well the Olympics are on tonight right.


    Trubluluc,
