    I've recently purchased a Denon 3802 amp and the Mission FS2AV speaker set (not yet delivered). Obviously I want to be able to use the extra speaker channels on the Denon but i'm a bit suspect about buying a 2nd set of FS2's to act as the extra surround channels.
    I do have a pair of Mordaunt Short MS25i's which to my untrained ear sound quite decent, and up until my foray into the AV market, were very serviceable as speakers for my old 4:3 28" tv (soon to be replaced with a 32" Tosh W/S tv).
    Question is - can I use the MS25i's as front speakers still, and then move the fs2av front speakers to function as the surround ones without making a muddle of the sound? I obviously wont be using the umbilical and included speaker cable if I do this.

    I contacted Mission by e-mail yesyerday with the same sort of query. I wanted to use my existing FS2-AV centre speaker as my rear centre and purchase a mission m7c? centre speaker for use as my new centre. This is the reply I received,

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for your e-mail.

    With regards to your question, the Mission fs-2 is designed for where discreet, elegant audio visual system is required. The fs-2 offers state-of-the-art sound derived from the nxt surface sound technology. The fs-2 package sound best where all the speakers are matching (ie. using flat panel speakers throughout and not mixing with pistonic speaker). I suggest that you audition these systems and then you will be able to determine the differences.

    Further information on Mission products is available on the following web page: www. mission.co.uk

    I hope this information is of help.

    Kind regards

    So maybe it could be done, I don`t know. Anyone else out there using their FS2-AV with other speakers!

    Well i was thinking, I can but try it and see what its like. If it doesnt work I can get another pair of fs2s and a sub as mission suggests, but if it sounds ok to me then I've saved that extra cash.

    pigwhistler, this has already been discussed a few times.. (search for fs2 + 6.1)

    the mission dolby ex pdf file mentioned has the answer and fully discusses the solutions.. (see below)
    http://www.staff.livjm.ac.uk/cismconn/fs2av-EX-ES.pdf

    basically you dont want to do it with your old speakers mentioned - they will not match sound-wise...

    you can either go for a stereo fs2 pack (including another sub).,
    or the far cheaper route, a pair of Mission bipole ds series.

    you can pick these up from Richer for about £100.
