Have been combing the forums for a few weeks now, and appreciate the time everyone puts in to help.
I am in process of finalizing my speaker list and could definitely use some help with rear surrounds and subs. Below is what I had in mind and it seems from the forums, it is ok, but I was looking for the preferred option.
Room is 18' x 16'6" in a basement. MLP will be about 36"-40" from the back wall.
RP-280F (L, R)
RP-250S (Side surrounds)
RP-160M (rear surrounds)
Request 1) Keeping LCR same, what is preferred for the rear surrounds? RP-160M, RP-250S or RP-250F? The reason I ask is all 3 choices are within ballpark of each other after I consider cost of stands for the RP-160M
Request 2) Is it better to have 2 R-112SW vs. 1 R-115SW? (having 2 R-115SW will basically blow my budget)
Layout attached. The 8 boxes on side and back wall are columns.
Thanks in advance for your advice!!
