    Default r 15's or r 50's for surrounds

    I am rebuilding my system after fire damage. On craigslist I can get either the r15's for 70 or the r50's for 100. What do you think? The r 50's take up a lot of space. What would you recommand for my center channel?

    Hey buddy, you know I will work with you. I just don't have a center. Did you see my pics?

    I had to give my old center to my brother to complete his r-system. Oh yeah I have 4 r-15 but the other 2 are a little knocked up.

    But to answer your question, get the 50's and then I can cover everything else....also look into a cs1 center they are at a all time low.

    I don't know anything about them, but if they are what you're looking for....I think Fry's website still has the R50s in cherry for $59/ea new.

    Sorry about your loss.

    Right now I'm using r50's for rears (they were cheaper than bookshelfs) with no complaints. I had four r50's at one time, two in front, two in back, and a CS2 in the center. They were all very well matched. I think you can get a CS2 off Amazon for about $160 these days.

    I think they use the same drivers. The 150 is 1/2" wider overall, and ported to the rear rather than up front.

    For surrounds, I'd select the R15s and mount them to a wall.
