    I'm honestly not too familiar with either speakers, but I don't see why you couldn't use one for the front mains and one for the rear surrounds. Just make sure the receiver/amp you're using will not overpower, or underpower, the rear speakers.

    Depending on your gear, you could hook up a subwoofer too. I don't know about multiple ones, however. For that matter...why would you want to run 5 subwoofers at once? That's just overkill. And trust me...of all people, I'm probably among the most least likely on this site to use the term overkill. haha

    I'm afraid that in order for us to help you, we're going to have to know exactly what you have. So yeah...that list you speak of...we're gonna need that...

    ;)

    Boy, pawnguy, that's quite a list!

    I'm no expert but I'll tell ya :) :

    You've got your work cut out for you. I'd try both speakers (both thought well of, apparently) and use the ones you like. They are very different types of speakers. You could even try them with different amps (I sure would!).

    Ditto for the subs. For HT I'd be tempted, very tempted, to go over the top with them. Heck, if it ends up sounding bad you can always cange your setup.

    Is the Sansui a DD/DTS processor? If so I'd think hard about that Carver amp. If the Sansui isn't, and your Pioneer doesn't have preouts, think about selling some stuff & buying one that does, or a seperate processor. I don't know a thing about the DBX. The cd players don't seem nec. for HT.

    Really, it all comes down to you fooling around with the stuff. I'd be in heaven!!

    Good luck. Maybe some of the wiser ones here can toss in their .02.

    Pete
