I thought you said he wanted $400.00?   Either way, good score.

Side surrounds of course.  You want the better speakers in place where the most surround information is mixed and that is in the surround channels.

That is a very kind thing to say.  Thirteen years ago you would not have been able to say that about me with a straight face.:lol:

When he told me $400 the other person interested said he was coming to get them that evening told me that i could take em if I brought him $400 and cane right away (I kinda was begging him lol) I said naw it was all good ... played his game with him then got a message day or so later saying the guy backed out and they were up for grabs I said $300 ! And he stayed at $325 glad I got them

Listen to them first and get used to them before any surgery performed.

Guy didn’t budge got em for $325 now need to make a decision I’m currently using my Rs-3ii as rear surround and rp-51 as surrounds do I put my rs-7 as rear surrounds or surrounds? Do I dump the 51s or the ra-3iis

It's generally recommended to have bookshelf or direct radiating speakers such as your 51s as rear surrounds.  That said, I'm using wide dispersion-type speakers as rear surrounds and I really like them.

About the only thing would be better capacitors in the crossovers but I'm not sure how much of a difference it would make.

You're always helping someone with questions, and you're pretty good at helping people spend their money 😁

What I like about this place, not a lot of condescending attitude sent to someone with a basic question, like my questions. Their is a lot of knowledge here.

So I think I’ve decided that I’m gonna use the rc7 as sides and the RS3ii as rears I have them I might as well lol gonna ditch the 2 112sw subs for a SVSPB3000 or 4000 haven’t decided and put my chorus II’s up front and take and move the 280fs use them as my front wide channel idk it’s so loud and crisp clear I fall into Coma toast state listening to some real good Hi-Fi recordings Thanks everyone it’s taken me some time but I’ve finally almost done!! (For now 😝😝😝)
