I’ve been looking at these speakers and wondering if they will be ok to use as my rear speakers in my 5.1 set up. Thanks

Kind of depends on what your other speakers are.  They're pretty tiny and could be drowned out by larger speakers, especially if you listen at high volumes.

 

And remember, a 5.1 surround setup uses side, not rear or back surrounds.  They should be placed to your side facing inward.  Obviously some rooms don't allow for this but when you connect them to your receiver they should be connected to the 'surround' or 'side surround' outputs. 👍

To add to wuzzzer's comment, 5.1's side surround schematic generally calls for WDST or other multi-pole speaker configurations, meaning that you'd be better off getting a speaker designed for surround duty rather than a monitor.  You want a broad dispersion of sound on the sides.

Sorry, you’re right. I have them to the side. The speakers I have no are really only technics. Only upgrade is the center to RC-25.
