hi, what should i use for rears in a 5.1 set up, fx500's or rt800's? i have rt2000i fronts and a cs350ls center.
thanks for your opinion!

    Try both and see what sounds best, Me personally it seems a waste to put a large 800 in the back unless your listening to 5 channel stereo all the time or something. But then somepeople don't like the fx style speakers for rears, they rather have direct fireing like me.. and also i assume you have space for proper placement of a large rt800 in the rear? things to think about
