I am soliciting suggestions on surround speaker choices.
I need to decide on rear and side surrounds for a new 7.1 system going into my living room. I am at the point in the remodel efforts that the speaker wires for the surrounds need to be run in-wall before more cosmetic work is complete. I have narrowed my choices down to QS8's and/or W22's. My current thoughts are QS8's on the back wall and W22's on the sides. This review seemed to favor dipole rears and monopole sides, but only by a small margin: http://www.hometheatermag.com/loudspeakers/25/index.html
I have several 200w per channel amps (Nakamichi, Aragon, Adcom) and will likely be purchasing an Outlaw 990 Pre/Pro.
The room is 14 feet by 22 feet with a vaulted, pine ceiling that peaks with a beam running across the room, half way between the font and back. The room is fairly bright and may need some acoustic panels placed judiciously to dampen the reflections. I can move the couch up from the back wall, but I would like to minimize how far, 4 feet perhaps.
Comments and suggestions are appreciated! Thanks in advance.
