Speaker Config 5.1

Dear Sir or Madam

I currently own x2 8030a's and x2 8020a's.

I want a 5.1 setup so was considering purchasing another 8030a for the centre and then a sub either 7050b or 7060b.

My questions are
1. Is it ok to use the 8020a's as the rear surrounds.
2. Also is the larger 7060b compatible with the 8020a's
3. do you think this would be good setup?

I would love to have all 8030a's but just cant afford it at the moment ( maybe one day).
please let me kow your thoughts and advice.

Kind Regards

Hello James,

This is an easy one, yes to all of your questions. :) For the sub I recommend the 7060B because it will meet the SPL requirements for a 5.1 system better than the 7050B which is too small subwoofer for this kind of system.
