    Default Need Recs for Rear Surrounds to Match Older RTi Series Fronts

    I am selling my RT800i and CS400i to a friend to help them build a 7.1 setup.

    What rear speakers should I recommend to them for 2 pairs of rears?

    I am thinking of the TSi100s, Monitor30s or Monitor40s on stands.

    What would you guys advise? Please let me know...

    Default Best Bang for Buck?

    Well, if your friend really wants the best bang for his buck, as well as the best possible match, I would search for the older RT/RTi range products. Suitable models would be the RT25, RT28i or RT35i (with or without the "i", since the changes were very minor). I would expect he could find these for $75-125, depending on their condition. The best way would be a local sale, to avoid shipping charges, either, eBay (if you don't mind dealing with that), or the FM here.
