If you want to, get more opinions here first.

Maybe they will not be too shy.

stay away from bipole and dipole -  that's correct.

 

i would use the r41m  for your side surrounds.  - you don't *need* to have the surrounds match the LCR.   It's not likely you'll have timbre issues with such ambient sounds compared to having matching LCR.

Ditch the R14S and use a monopole.  Since you bought some R41Ms, get another set to finish off the side and rear.  If timber match is a concern, watch something with the 41Ms you have  on the side and see if it is an issue.  I have RP8000s and a RP504C. I once used R51Ms and R15Ms for side and rear.  It was fine.

i think timbre matching is truly only a concern for LCR -- i matched my front and rears.    RF7ii for L/R   and RF7ii for L/R rear.   then i added R5800w into the side columns and CDT5800 for ceiling.... i can't tell during movies which is the  8" driver and which is the RF7 with dual 10's..... the rear's matching the front is WAY overkill.   it's quite a statement when you walk into theater - so that's worth something.  but timbre matching - i think is best left to LCR.    if i did it over again - i'd use a wall mounted  or  in-wall for my rears,  like another set of  R5800w.
