    If I would use five identical bookshelf speakers (2 fronts, center and two surrounds..plus a sub) would I lose out not having dedicated center and surround designs? I was wondering if given the frequency response I might be losing out on some of the higher end designed into dedicated center and surrounds. Specs below:

    Type Bass Reflex

    Max. Power 100 W

    Frequency Response 55 Hz-35 Hz

    Woofer 5 1/4" Cone x 2

    Tweeter 1" Dome

    Depends on the dispersion of the bookhself and how far off axis people are sitting. My first center was a matching bookshelf and did a fine job. Ascend Acoustic has two of it's three CC as matching bookshelves turned on side with the logo repositioned accordingly.

    5 identical speakers is the way to go for a 5.1 setup. [​IMG]

    According to Dolby Labratories.

    It is also, if economically feasible, definitely the way to go for multi-channel music. Sadly, I couldn't go this way (and meet my own criteria for two channel performance) but someday.
