    hurrah!!
    i am off today to go and pick up my nice new 3802(was gonna mail order but music matters price match!).
    but there is a problem.....boo........hiss......
    i have the acoustic energy speaker package with 3's at the front and 2's at the rear.
    what in the blue hell am i supposed to use as a rear centre?
    the room is approx 12' square but at the rear there is a chimmney breast which sticks out about 2' and is 5' wide.
    so if i bought another pair of aegis there would be 2 pairs about 2' apart.
    any ideas?anybody make a wall speaker that might match?

    How about a pair of Aegis Ones wall mounted on brackets??

    Dont forget you need some depth behind you to benefit from EX/ES systems. With the Denon you can connect either a pair of speakers or a single speaker for the rear centre/s.

    You may find placing them either side of the chimney breast and angled down towards the listening position will work well.

    The distance between the main surrounds and the rear centre surrounds is important, if they are on the same plane, you´ll not get the system sounding like it should.

    That's a well kept secret. No mention in their ads and they are my local shop but I don't bother with them as they are too expensive.

    The depth mainly. A few feet behind you and the side surrounds.

    I´ve also got the rear centres higher up than the side surrounds as well, works well for my setup.

    Not sure about brackets, long as they´re strong enough to take the weight of the speaker and have the ability to be angled up or down (& left or right wold be handy!) so you can fine tune the position.
