    Hey guys,

    Right now, I only have paradigm Atoms for left and right, and svs 20-39 Pci. I went to Tweeter today and saw this Mirage Omnisat satellite speakers. Is it worth replacing my atoms with this omnisats for fronts, rears and centers?

    Thanks.

    I'd say no. You're moving down from large speakers to satellites, and you're going to lose sonics based on the smaller enclosure (less bass response, not so good. You'd have to rely on your sub for midbass, which increases localization, etc...). Sure, pick up a pair for the surrounds, they'll probably work well for that, but I'd get the CC170 to go with your Atoms for sure.

    Hi Drew,

    Actually, there is a used OS-1 black and white OmniSat for sale at Tweeter at around $175. Are you saying that this speaker are nice for surrounds?

    Thanks.
