    Hi EVERYone...

    I would like to put 2 rear speakers on the back wall of my home theatre as well as side surrounds. My dilemma is that there is a door in my back wall that is 20" away from one of the corners. I was planning on putting in a di-pole speaker but the Klipsch ss-1 is 15" wide - so the sound coming out of the one side of the speaker has only a few inches before it hits the corner wall.

    My question is... I am going to use the Klipsch ss-1 dipole for the side surrounds BUT can I just use the Klipsch bookshelf(sb-1 ?) (that I am going to use as my fronts too) - as my rear surrounds.

    I wasn't too sure if mixing up configuration of speakers (di-pole(ss-1) vs. front firing (sb-1)) was ok for the surrounds (rear/side).

    thanks in advance...

    Sure you can! I think that you'll be quite pleased with the results too!

    I have the Klipsch rs-7 for my side surrounds and jbl n24 for rear surrounds, sounds great. I think that's what THX recommends for a 7.1 setup.

    I am currently working on (actually my installers are working on) a system that I have done twice before with GREAT results....
    RF7'S (MAINS)
    RC7 (CENTER)
    RS7'S (SIDE SURROUNDS)
    RSW3's (REAR IN-WALL SURROUNDS)
    RSW15 (SUB)...

    The placement scenario mimics my own...
    wide dispersion surrounds, matching bookshelf rears.....

    I greatly prefer this arrangement for 7.1....

    What about the height and distance apart ?. The height should be ear level and they should be 1 - 2 feet away from the corners ?

    thanks,
