Eosone Speakers and Sub OK?

Good day,

I have recently purchased a pair of PSB T-45's and a C-40 Center channel to go along with my Denon 1910 receiver. I am saving up for a decent sub and pair of surrounds. While cleaning out my storage unit, I discovered a set of Eosone (discontinued, used to be division of Polk) RSA 100 speakers and an RSP 910 subwoofer. Not being very knowledgable on speakers beyond knowing not to waste money on Bose, I was hoping I could find some answers and suggestions on what Im doing.

I would like to use the RSA 100 satellites as my surrounds (and maybe the front height). These are satellite speakers with a rear firing tweeter and I read that they are Dipole (?) Will this be OK to use with my PSB T-45's 5 1/4 main and center? Is the dipole thing a problem?

As for the RSP 910 - I could not find a lot of info on it beyond this:
Eosone RSP-910
* 10"
* Power 55W rms / 77W peak power
* Frequency Response 32Hz - 200Hz

Does anyone have experience with this sub, and how do you think it will perform with the above set up until I save up enough for an SVS?

Thanks for any insight you can offer.

It should be no problem using the speakers as surrounds for the time being (its better than nothing by a long shot) The sub is small but as long as you dont expect earth shattering bass from it and use it at low volumes you will be fine.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: Eosone Speakers and Sub OK?

Hello,
As per usual, I agree with Tony. Especially about adding Surrounds. The Subwoofer is suspect given the amplifier power and frequency response. I really might configure the T-45 as Large and if possible set the AVR to Double Bass.

That is LFE going to both the Fronts and the Subwoofer. Usually, I would not recommend this. However, with the Subwoofer not having very much power, it really might give you the best results. As they say, try then apply.
Cheers,
JJ
