8250 surround options

Sorry if this has been asked a million times but I couldn't find it in the search engine.

I currently have a pair of 8250's and I'd like to expand it a surround setup.. On a budget. I'm looking at the 7260 sub. My mix room is on the small side so I'm hoping it will do. I'll add 8240's for surrounds and another 8250 for the centre.

Any thoughts?

Hi Thorpe

So you know that you'll be restricted in SPL, what is it you want to know that you don't already know?

7271 is the optimal solution to your setup for any room size.
7270 is the logical choice if you are financially pressed.
7260 will work at limited SPL as it is sized for 2 x 8240.

In your situation I would go with one 7270, the markup is too small not to.

In case you move to a larger room and need the SPL, get another sub and put one in each front corner.
Actually two 7260's should be big enough in this setup.

Play with the Speaker Selection Tool @
See what you come up with.
