    I will be going to a 6.1/7.1 setup shortly and was thinking about getting the Paradigm Active 20's for my fronts. This would enable me to use the two extra channels of amplification in my Outlaw 750 for the center surround speakers. This seems like a good alternative to purchasing a separate 2 channel amp for center surrounds. I currently have Paradigm Ref 20's in front and for my side surrounds along with the Paradigm Studio CC. Thanks for any input on this alternative.

    Personally, I'd go straight for the 40's. They don't cost too much more but the bass resposnse is a lot deeper. Regardless, you can't go wrong with the Active 20's. Considering each speaker is biamplifeid and uses electronic crossovers, I think the Paradigm Actives are a fantastic deal.

    The 20s are most excellent speakers. The only reason I never bought them was because I also wanted a single 20 for the center channel, but they don't make one that's shielded. There are rumors afloat that Paradigm may be discontinuing the active series due to poor sales, but so far, I think its just a rumor.
    I clue ya in on one interesting tidbit, though..... Tom Nousaine uses them for himself, and has nothing but raves.
