I've had my Axioms hooked up since Saturday, Im very happy.
Got a tiny room 11'w x 10.5' x 8'
I got 2 W22's, 1 W150 and 2 QS4s. Ive already ordered a W100, (the W100 under the display and the W150 over).

So now I want 7.1, needed probably not.... Gonna have it yes.

Should I match the sides to the front, QS8s and move the QS4s to the rear, get QS4s for the back to match the sides or send the QS4s back and get QS8s for the Sides and Rears.

Does the "woofer" part of the rears need to match the fronts?

Thanks

Jeff

To be honest, not sure a room that small would be worth going 7.1, unless your sitting in the middle of the room, 7.1 might be a waste. I assume your sitting near the back wall?

You lost me a little in the last few sentences. If 7.1 is worth while, the "side" surrounds and "rear" surrounds normally would be the same model. Some people go with bookshelfs for the rears if they listen to a lot of multi channel music, however, the Q's do a good job for that as well.

Again, not to bash your room size, but I think it might be a bit to small for 7.1...You would be better putting the money towards another sub.

Dealing with the room I had, Im 7' from the screen and have 3.5' behind the viewing position so I think I'll get the effect. It's only a 52" display, per the charts I can go to 64"

QS4s will do just fine, but if its 'gotta have' might as well go QS8's and be done with it. Now start saving for the addition so you can really make those puppies sing...

Yep, already planning the addition, you'll have to walk thru the TV room with the W22s to get to the theater with the M80s. Buy speakers, build a romm, whats wrong with this equation?

I know .. Ive made up my mind 7.1,

but I still have the question... match the surrounds to the fronts, which would mean an upgrade to the QS8's, 5 1/2" woofs or it doesn't matter, Qs4s rock the room and then if so, do the rears, used not often Id assume, can be QS4s or upgrade to QS8s?

Am I asking the question the wrong way?

Damn I just want to do this right, but bucks is bucks

Thanks

Jeff
