    OK, so it's a bit more than just a question. I recently (although not recently enough to trade it in!!) bought a 3801 and I have been wanting to add the rear surrounds.
    My current setup is 5 M&K 750THX and a SVS 20-39 (sold my M&K 1250 for it thanks to this site). The room is about 14 feet wide and I was wondering whether to add a single center 750 or two 550's (or similar). The reason I mention the room width is will one rear fill up the back of the room or should I go for two? I wouldn't mind sticking with the 750's, but I thought I'd ask some of you folks with a bit more experience than me...

    I'd go for the dual rears. 14 ft is still quite a bit of room.

    I am sure you will get many opinions on this so here is one
    more, I am using a Klipsch C5
    center channel speaker in a 16 x 20
    room for my 6.1 Onkyo 787, sounds
    good to me.

    Just out of curiosity,because I am considering upgrading reciever.Do 6.1 recievers have 2 speaker out puts for the rear channel?If not how do you wire 2 speakers safley?I think I would get a set of klipsch bipoles for the sides and use my current sb-1 for the rears

    The Onkyo 787 has a provision for
    one surround back or 6 amplified
    channels to obtain two back
    surround channels a separate 2
    channel amplifier is required
    that will bring the 787 up to 7.1
    I think Onkyo's M282 is recommended.
