8331 Surround set up

8331 Surround set up

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 3/19/18 Recent Posts

Hello.  I am looking at the possibility of upgrading one of my rooms to an 8331 (LCR) setup.  My room is small (13x9x8), yet fairly well treated.  I'm trying to maximize the little space I have in this room, and thought this form factor of monitor would work for me.  For surrounds (Ls, Rs), I'm thinking of going with 8330's, but also wonding if 8320's would do the trick.  Which of these monitors would be reccomended for surrounds?

Additionally, which sub would be reccomended for a system of this sort?  I'm thinking the 7350 would be fine, particulary given the size of the room, or would be going up to the 7360 be more beneficial and future-proof?

Thanks in advance.

We are recommending the same size monitor for full 5.1 systems, but you can have surround monitors one size smaller without noticing any big difference on the monitors performance, so 8320A's will perform well on the rear channel. I would recommend 7360A subwoofer to be used with such setup in 5.1.

For more information, and local support I recommend you to contact your nearest distributor. You can find our distributors from link below:
