    New here, great forum, and lots of great info. Please excuse any dumb questions ahead of time...

    I'm just getting into HT, purchased a HK AVR520. I was hoping I could get some advice on speakers. I currently own a pair of JBL L3 speakers. I'd like to know if these are suitable to use as front speakers.

    I'm planning on buying the sub, surround and center channel speakers to complete a 5.1 system, and ease into this gradually. If I were to keep the L3's, I would probably go with JBL N series to keep things in the family, along with a PB12 sub. Is this a good idea, or should I scrap the L3's and just start from scratch? I've really enjoyed them over the years for my music listening.

    My room is about 14x16, and I plan on using the system for 80% movie watching.

    Since no one has chimed in.
    Why dont you go & find a setup you like for the front 3 L-C-R
    Use the JBL's as rears surrounds until you feel you need to upgrade to match the front 3.
