Hi folks, this would be my first post on this forum, so please be gentle to this newb. I am upgrading my home theater system and I am purchasing a whole set of JBL Studio Series speakers, since they're discontinued I wanna get my hands on them before they are forever gone. I have already gotten plenty of useful information from Phil on this subject through emails we've shared. Phil, I am in no way undermining your expertise on JBL speakers, I just want to get more opinions Here's my 6.1 setup: Fronts: JBL S310II (on order) Center: JBL S-Center II (if I can find it) or else JBL EC35 L/R Surround: JBL S38II or JBL S26II Back Surround: JBL S36II (buying it from a friend) Sub: HSU STF-2 I need opinions for my L/R surround speakers; ideally I would like to get a pair of S36II to match my surround back speaker but I can't find this model anywhere online. As a result, I am left with 2 choices: S38II or S26II. My concern about the S38II is that it is such a big speaker and it might be a big waste of "potential" if I use it as a surround speaker, but I want to get it because its a horizontal speaker and its 3-way like the rest of the speakers in my setup. As for the S26II, its cheaper, and should be adequate as a surround speaker, however its only 2-way and I'm concerned it may not match well with all the other 3-way speakers in my setup, not to mention its a vertical speaker. Has anyone used either of these speakers as surrounds, if so, any suggestions/recommendations? As for the center, I really want an S-Center II, but if I have no choice I'll have to opt for an EC35 - how is this speaker and how will it match with the rest of the Studio Series speakers in the setup? I plan to power all these with a Yamaha RX-V2400 receiver. Thanks in advance for all the help.
