    I've decided to hold off on my full HT buy for a couple of months so I can afford better equipment.

    Right, now, I'm going to buy a pair of JBL S312s, and wanted to know if they would match well with a set of JBL S38s as surounds. I'm probably going to get four S38s(if it's a good idea) so I can get some nice 6.1 sound.

    WIll this sound good, or will the S312s overpower the S38s?

    I have a set of S312's up front and S36's for surrounds and they sound wonderful together. I have calibrated them so the fronts don't over power everything else because those huge towers could easily do that. I think the S38's would match well with them.
    I've got everything set to "large" until my subwoofer arrives. [​IMG] I think if you calibrate everything correctly, you won't have to worry about over-powering the other speakers. [​IMG] Good luck!!
