Hi,

I have a surround setup using a Kenwood VR-6060 as my reciever. I have a pair of JBL N28s as my front mains, a N-Center and a pair of N24s as my surrounds. My reciever supports a rear surround channel and I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas one where I could purchase just one N24 to use as the rear surround. I've tried using an old N-Center as the rear surround and it sounded like garbage; way too high. So I'm set on finding another N24 as the rear surround. I'd appreciate all feedback. Thanks everyone.

Jim

Iv'e got to believe someone else is in your same position and could use one as well. I bet if you bought a pair you could sell the other fairly easy.

Alternatively, they're pretty cheap, so you could just keep the extra around as a spare.

yea .. maybe you'll go 7.1 in the future sometime. Harmandirect I think sells them on Ebay sometimes. This seems like an ok deal. I thought I even saw a single one somewhere a while back. Can't remember where though now.

James, check ebay, you might find a single. But you could just buy a pair and use it for 7.1 if your reciever supports it.
I have an n24 with a broken bracket, so I almost bought a single n24 but it went for about 25.00+shipping, and the bracket through harmonkarden was 21.00 shipped...

If your AV Receiver doesn't have two Rear Center Channel outputs, you can still use two speaker by wiring them in-series!

That's what I did when I upgraded to 6.1, I bought another JBL S26 for my Rear Center Channel and wired them in-series, ... which sounds glorious in my 20' x 30' HT/family room!

I followed the recommendation from Dolby Labs Listener's Guide to DD-EX website ...

Quote:
For Dolby Digital EX playback, as with regular 5.1 playback, place the left and right surround speakers to the sides of, or slightly behind, your listening position. For the third surround channel, place an additional surround speaker, or, preferably, an additional pair of surround speakers, directly behind the listening area, as shown in Figure 2.

The ideal is to have identical speakers for all the surround channels. They should at least be of the same brand and of similar design.

Hope this helps,

Phil, no amp problems caused by the increase in impedance by wiring in series?

Not all amps will be able to handle this and is not recommended.

increase in impedance isn't a problem at all, it's decrease that causes damage.
