    Default Small footprint rear surrounds match Monitor 50's

    Been upgrading my system from a Kenwood HTIB system. Already replaced the fronts and center with Monitor 50's and CS1. Not much room. They sit on narrow shelves in the back corners of the room. Existing rears are about 5-1/2" square. Appreciate your thoughts.

    Not alot of space to work with that foot print, but here's some suggestions:
    RM8
    RM201
    VM10

    The VM is the best of this bunch, but also most exspensive. The RM8 is pretty neat, and surprising sound from such small package. It would also add to the surround effect. The RM201 will be the hardest to find, but it may also work well for you. All will be an upgrade from your current surround speakers IMO. I hope that helps:)

    Also look in to the Monitor 30/40. The 30's are wall mountable and would blend nicely with the setup you already have. If not maybe the OWM3 or OWM5's. Welcome to Club Polk.

    I would also recommend the OWM3's. I have them as rear surrounds with TSi400 fronts and TSi100 sides and they do a great job. They are fairly compact and have plenty of stand/mounting options.

    Glad we were able to help, and congrats on the new system. Do us all a favor and put some pics of your rig up in the System Showcase when you get it all set up.
