    I'm curious to know if any of you are using more than one ST-line REL in your setup. If so, how do you have them arraigned?

    I currently have one Strata III. I think I would like to add 2 more to my setup so that I could use the high level connection and run all my B&W N805 speakers as full range speakers. (My reason for doing so is that I spend a lot of time listening to multichannel SACD and DVD-A's)

    So, with 3 RELs, would you...

    a.) put one in each front corner and one in the back corner for the surrounds.

    b.) line them all up in the same corner

    c.) stack them all in the same corner

    d.) other... please elaborate.

    All ideas and suggestions welcome....

    Thanks,

    Lowrider has two Stratas and has one behind each of the stereo pair.

    I think two Strata III are enough, particularly with xover less than 80hz, I use 60hz...

    Everybody who visits is amazed with the good, perfectly integrated bass... :cool:

    Thank you for the replies.

    Follow up question on your setup lowrider.

    In your setup, do you have 1 REL for the left-front speaker and 1 REL for the right-front speaker...

    or, do you have the left and right front's going to 1 REL and the center channel going to the other REL...

    or are you crossing over in your pre/pro, have all speakers set to small, and using both REL's as LFE only?

    I use all speakers as small, xover 60hz, and connect both subs with a Monster cable T-splitter to the LFE of a Krell Showcase...
