    Are you looking to do a 5.1, 6.1, or a 7.1 system?

    I have the 800i with the 245i centre and using f/x300i surrounds.
    Sounds awesome.

    I have the 800i, cs400i,and I am using the 35i's for my sourrounds in a 5.1 setup and I am very pleased with them.But I would like to do a 6.1 but I cant decide what to go with for the rear sourrounds. I was thinking about moving the 35s to the back and getting some fx500sfor the sides.will the two 35s wired in parallel be large of a load for my receiver ''AVR-2802".

    For a 5.1 system, I think conventional wisdom says to get some F/X500i's, or even F/X300i's. Here is a good page to read for determining where to place your chosen surrounds.

    wow earnest...we have almost the identical system..I have the 1802,not the 2802 though...I have the 450 sub which is good ,but I think I should have gone with the 650...maybe I`m just being too picky..

    It will depend on your room layout, both the fx/500's and the rt35's make good choice's, they match you system well,but to figure out what speaker would work the best, i need more info on you room, where you sit.
    My personal quest is to save to world of bad audio, one thread at a time.

    I'm using the fx500i's dipole and cs245i as rear center in a 6.1 setup. Absolutly seemless! Check out my system showcase for placement.:D

    vinny, i had the rt35i's for awhile, upgraded to the fx1000's. the dipole was the way to go for rear HT surround IMO. much more diffuse sound. although i am running the 1000's, i think the 500's would be ample in your set-up. good luck finding them now though, that was my problem...
    ...the fOrce is strong with this one.
