    Default Looking Into Buying Rear surround Speakers... Need Help!!!!

    well as of right now i have a 5.1 surround sound system with 2 fronts (TSi300) and i am borrowing 2 rear speakers and a center speaker from my cousin until i am able to afford ones of my own. and now has come the time when i have enough money saved up to buy surround speakers. im not looking to spend more than $300 on them and i was looking at the TSi100 but the problem i had is the way my room is set-up. it is in the basement and the sofa is pressed against the back of the wall so (correct me if im wrong cuz i sort of new to this stuff) i would have to have the speakers facing the sofa with the the back of the speaker facing out which wouldn't work because i would have to deal with the sight and the wires facing out (i am kinda picky when it comes to stuff like this)

    so the main point of all this is to try and find a stand for the TSi100 that would conceal the back. or if someone knew of some better speakers within my price range that might work better. so does any one know some good stands that fit the TSi100 or know of some better speakers for the price

    P.S. i cant mount the speakers on the wall or the ceiling

    Welcome to Club Polk.
    Typically the side surround TSi100's would be located off the sides of the sofa with the speaker backs against the side walls of your room. Is there something I'm missing?

    well the way the room is i could put one of the speakers on the side but on the other side it is open so there is no wall to conceal the wires. the room is in the shape of a triangle and basically the room is split in the middle (there is no wall) on one side is my bead room and on the other side it the living room so the one speaker could be up against the side of the wall but on the other side there is no wall

    Sanus has some good wood stands with wire management that may do the trick.

    Just assemble them carefully so that you don't overtighten the screws. They are particle board and when I put mine together (carefully or so I thought), one of the legs split. On the plus side, Sonus sent me a replacement at no charge and I didn't repeat my mistake.:)
