    Those 2 speakers are so close I don't think you would notice a difference using the E20's as surrounds.

    Brad E is correct since the entire JBL E-Series is timbre-(voice)-matched!

    However, the E20s are virtually no different in price from the E30s, but don't pack the punch that the E30s have. Plus, the E20s are rear ported, while the E30s are front ported, which made a great deal of difference to me.

    I originally bought the E20s as my surrounds. Then bought some E30s for the surrounds (5.1) and used the E20s for the surround backs (7.1). Within the 30 day return period, I returned the E20s for another set of E30s because of the noticeable "oomph" in the sound and because my surround backs lay on their backs, not unlike the back speakers of a car stereo, behind my couch. The front port was much needed in this situation instead of the rear port. Your mileage may vary...

    Go with E30s all around. [​IMG]
