Can I use these old speakers as surrounds?

    Hey all,

    I'm getting ready to step up to some "real" equipment. My current setup consists of an Aiwa shelf system with a Pro Logic receiver built in. It served it's purpose, but it's finally time to upgrade to a DD/DTS/DPL2 setup. The front speakers of my current setup are 3-Way, 150W, 6ohm, Aiwa SX-NAV900's. I'm just wondering if it's possible to use these as surrounds on a new setup for a while? I'm just thinking that I can then buy a better front soundstage and get new rears in a few months. The receiver I'll be buying will be a $250-$400 model of some type if that makes any difference.

    Thanks for any advice

    Yes, you can certainly do that, and it's a great plan. That way, you'll get better quality fronts (where it matters more) and replace the rears when you feel like it.
