Currently I have SVS for my front three speakers, an SVS sub and older Cambridge Soundworks bi-pole/di-pole as surrounds and smaller CS speakers for the two center rears. I used these from my last set up so I would have enough money to buy the SVS front three and SVS sub. But now it's time to start looking to upgrade the surrounds and rear centers.

I just ordered a pair of Wharfedale WH-2MMP's for side surrounds so that's covered. Cheap at Amazon!

So what do you recommend for the two center rears? Not too expensive please.

I have an Onkyo 705 with a PS3 and a Epson 6100 1080p that shoots an amazing 8ft wide picture.

Theater dimensions are 22 long, 10.5 wide and 7 tall.

Edit: I just looked over at my office credenza and remembered I have a pair of Mirage M-190's. ????

Althought it is best to speaker match for all speakers, I think most any good speaker will do. Remember that only surround sounds are going to the back speakers. Have fun. Dennis

Hello,
Your Mirage's are better than your Wharfdale's. I would put the Mirage's where you were going to put the Wharfedale's and but those for Rear Center.
Cheers,
JJ

Even though the Mirages are direct firing you'd put them on the sides and even though the Wharefdales are dipole, you'd put them in back?

Edit: I actually have 2 pair of the Mirages. They were in a classroom in which I was teaching and the maintenance guys were redoing stuff and going to throw them away. I took them, not knowing anything about audio back then, and actually have the other pair in my garage which I have paired with my old NAD 25 watt receiver. Awesome "work in the garage" system, although the NAD is losing a channel, I fear.

Decent speakers?
