I am putting a HT setup together with Paradigm Studio 20v3s for mains, 470CC, i just need the surrounds i have decided to go with the ADP's but im having a hard time finding the 370 used anywhere and i cant afford them brand new, My question would the ADP 170's work and still give me a good surround experience compared to the ADP 370's. Any expeerince with each would be appreciated room size is 16x20

I haven't auditioned either yet but I'm in the market for the same surrounds as you.. I've heard the 170 does an EXCELLENT job for HT surround but for 5.1 DVD-audio they aren't the best you can get but still very good.

I'm sure the 370's would be great for everything but like you I can't justify the price.. the 170 is half the price, smaller, and lighter (only a factor if your wall mounting I suppose). plus the 370 would be overkill for me I'm still just running old Cerwin Vegas for mains and my center..
