I am looking to upgrade my HT from 5.1 to 7.1, so I need two more surround speakers.

Right now I am looking at Fluance AV-BP2 or Athena AS-R1 both are bipole speakers, I am looking not to spend too much money but if you recomend something else, you are wellcome.

So I couldn't find any reviews for Athena, what do you think for both
Should I get Athena, Fluance or something else.

Thanks
Ivan

Well I have BIC America 62CLR center and eXL center (I am still testing them to find which one fits me best)
Infinity RS8 for fronts
eXL-15 for surrounds

I just bought a pair of ASR1's from Best Buy Sunday for $150, they're running a sale right now 25% off all Athena speakers. I retired my Polk RT/FX sourounds so far the ASR1's have blown them away. Im also running a pair of F1's for the mains.
