Hi Guys,

I recently moved into a new place and am having difficulty finding a place to mount my surround speakers.  I have a JBL Studio setup with an S-center and S-towers for mains; I have been using a pair of JBL Northridge (N24's) as surrounds.  However, I'm finding it difficult to attractivley mount them in my new space. 

Are there any smaller, or in wall/cieling JBL surrounds that would be voice-matched to the S series stuff I already have that I could use?  Thanks.

Jim

I would look for some used S-series to match the others.  The N24s already weren't technically "matched" to the S-series, though they get the job done.  You could use them in 7.1 config if you find some S36s.  The only other option would be to move the current speakers to the rear and updgrade the front stage maybe to the L-series.  If you want to go in-wall/ceiling, you are going to have to listen to various speakers and find one that sounds close enough.
