    Hey all,

    On Friday I went to Best Buy to blow my IRS refund check. I bought (as part of a special sale, saving $200) the JBL SCS160SI 6.1 kit, as well as the Sony STR-DE697 7.1 amp. Now I have my sub, fronts and sides set up, with a lonely rear channel satellite in the back of the room. It deserves a mate, another JBL 160SISAT. JBL doesn't appear to sell their satellites separately... or am I mistaken?

    I'm very new at this (my last HT setup was a Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Theater 5.1 which lasted 5 years), so any help you all can offer would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    CS

    Just use 6 speakers. Place the rear speaker in the center behind your seating. DD-EX and DTS-ES are mostly a 6.1 channel decoding much of the time anyway. The 7th channel is a rear signal matrixed or split to make 7. I think you have to use the left rear if only using 1 speaker.

    I am sure that someone here will tell you different, that 7 is mandated, but 6.1 receivers don't even give a 7th channel.

    Good luck,

    Dennis

    Hey! I'm interested in the extra speaker!

    I have a 6.1 set of JBL 160SISAT speakers & would like to get a 7th.

    If you still have the speaker, how can I get it from you? Where are you located?

    Thanks!

    Eric

    Double check the date, the speaker offer is only about 10 months old.
