    I would think either the 800's or 2000's up front, I;f i understood the question correctly?? and i would use the fx500's for rears, and of course center and sub accordingly. Not real familiar with the 2000's but are those powered mains? If so maybe use them for mains, and the rest mentioned above. Good luck

    Sorry but I disagree with you there mantis. I would use the 800i's as mains. To me they sound better for HT than the single woofer speakers in the RT line.

    Steelevic, you should test them out and use the ones you like the most.

    organ,
    the rt200's have 3 woofers.1 midbass and 2 8 inch.I assume you know that.The rt800's, well I wouldn't put them up front over the rt2000's.The rt2000's sound much better to me at least.
    The amount of drivers don't yield better sound quality,most of the time less is more.

    Oops I meant 2 mid-woofers. I ignored the 2000i because he's got a sub already. I have compared the 800i to the 600i and 35i and preferred the 800i because of the increased dynamics in the mids but that's just my ears. I just hope our posts are not making Steelevic's decisions more difficult.
