Pardon my ignorance, what is LCR? The Center is the most important speaker in an HT? I appreciate you educating me, I would have always guessed it's the front 2. I will look at updating all 3.You'll probably have to rethink your strategy then. Having a mismatched LCR is never a good idea, and the fact your center - arguably the most important speaker in a HT system - is going to be a leftover from a HTiB that's almost a decade old is going to cause audible issues. Surrounds can be different, but the front 3 speakers really need to be a matched set.
Alright, now that's a good deal! Congrats on your new toys - you got a lot of speaker for very little $$. Once you have everything setup and configured be sure to come back and post your thoughts.Thanks Jman! So I got the Energy's for $180 total, plus a matching center for $60. Also, got the Pioneer FS52's for $59 each, price matched at BestBuy from Frys.com. Frys didnt really have it in stock, but the guy was nice enough to do it anyway. What an upgrade from my lousy system, gonna use these for my rears! Frys.com link posted below, hope it helps someone...thanks to everyone that posted here, especially Jman, appreciate everyones time.
