I'm glad that I been lucky the sony STR-DE915 receiver(DD-5.1) is still working. I plan to move the sony in the bedroom and buy the Denon 3802(7X110) next week, so I started to buy new speakers. I have had the f/x300i for DD5.1-rear surround(mounted on the side walls in dipole mode) for the last six months with a old Infinity center(video-1) and some 10-yr. old 3-way full Pioneer towers(that will also go to the bedroom),
also a sony 120 watt sub. This week I ordered the rt800i's (from wholesaleconnection-HOLDING MY BREATH THEY SHOW UP) and the CS245i (from Cruthfield).
My question is, Do you guys think another pair of f/x300i's would work good as a rear/back surround with the denon 6.1 & 7.1 modes. The Denon manual says that using two bipole back surround speakers is a good idea if already using dipole/bipole side surround speakers. I have a good 4-ft to the back wall behind the couch and a good wall for mounting. My house consists of one big open living, dining and kitchen area.
Crutchfield has the Polk deal going, that if you spend $499 in polk speakers you get a free pair of atrium 45's or the R20's. I been thinking the atrium 45's will work better in the bedroom as surround speakers and will give more options with the tilt wall brackets. Crutchfield said I have 30 days to add to my CS245i order($149) the f/x300i($349) or the rt35i($349) and will get the free atr45's or rt20's.
Thanks for any help
