    Ok, i already have the following speakers

    2 AS-F2's
    2 AS-R1's
    1 AS-C1
    1 P-400 sub

    i want the best setup possible for a 6.1/7.1
    Another pair of AS-R1's best for my setup? What about AS-F1's for the rears will that work? Please suggest thanks.

    What about buying another AS-f2 for the centers.

    So the set up would be this
    AS-F2's for the fronts & center
    AS-R1's for the sides
    AS-C1 for the rears, maybe buying another AS-C1 to make it 7.1?

    I'd go with all F2's across the front if possible...you have a projector? I went with an F1 at center since the F2 was a little too tall. The R1's work well as surrounds, although I mounted mine vertically as I found the sound too diffuse for MC music. The Athena bookshelf models would work well as surrounds although I needed something that could mount flush to the wall and the SB-1 and -2 are both rear-ported.When I had all F2's across the front, I used a pair of F1 as surrounds and they work extremely well although in my room they were much too close and distracting...so I went with the R1's high up on the wall.
    I wouldn't bother with the AS-C1, or any other "dedicated" center, unless you really had to.
