Hello everyone!\n\nAt the moment I am waiting for the 3 front speakers for my new Home theater speaker which are custom but I haven't confirmed my order for the surround ones yet since I am having some doubts about their size, power and quality. To be clear, I am not worried that they will under-perform but that they are overkill.\n\nThe surrounds will be using the same twitter and cone as the front speakers with the only difference being that the front ones will have 2 cones. All the speakers will be active with separate 100W AB amps for each cone and tweeter. The good thing about that will be that the surround sound will match the rest of the system and I can always use them as a "portable" stereo system whenever I move to my other house since they are "smaller".\n\nAfter watching a video by zreviews on surround speakers though I started worrying that they might be overkill. He recommends using the cheapest speakers possible for surrounds when it comes to movies and I am planning on buying speakers that cost as much as the front ones minus a cone and an amp and they are quite big (W23xD30x35H)...\n\nThe difference in my case is that apart from movies, I truly enjoy good surround music productions so I am wondering If better surrounds are a must when it comes to music. If I go with smaller on-wall speakers I will be saving both a lot of space and money since they will have cheaper components but the quality will be considerably worse. Does this really matter when it comes to surround sound or will I see a big enough difference to justify the extra space and cost?
