    How low do rear surrounds need to go in a 5.1 setup? The ones that I am looking at say 70, but the next step up claim 55? Do I need the 55?

    It depends on your reicever and how flexible it's x-over capabilities are. Given a choice, I'd opt for the one that does 55Hz.

    The 70hz models may be ok, but you would / should set the cross at around 100hz min with them. While 100hz is not horrible, you can start to get localization from your sub with it.

    I'd also opt for the better speakers and an 80hz crossover.
