AlIIIs for rear surrounds

Post by bsturgeon89 » Sat Oct 10, 2009 6:46 pm

I have never heard the ALIIIs.

Would they make a good rear surround speaker?

Ok just asking. I know some people on here use them on fronts.

So there are probably better alternatives for the money I take it?

Beemer....Ok but not great?

They would do well but it would be a waste. However,three AL-III's running the back end could be fun. Plus, two for the Front L/R. and one on it's side for the center. Add in a pair of sunfires. :-k :-k :-k That would be cool.

LOL...that gives me an idea.

Use them with my Plats.....throw in a couple or so true subs.....not only would it probably sound nice but have a nice look also.

Sure they would work just fine but I don't think I would do it. That is one heck of a speaker to only be used 10 to 20% of the sound coming from your system.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Well, if ya got 'em, use 'em. I will do exactly what Steve did if I ever score some Plats for the fronts. Notice they aren't REAR surrounds, they're just the surrounds. Rear surrounds (i.e., 7.1), I'd probably go with Sunfire CRM2s or CRS3s.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Any one care to school me on these?

Whats the difference between the CRW and CRS and then the ones that have (c) with them?

I know some of them are in walls and some are on the wall and some are stand mounted. Is that the difference? I also see that some have extra drivers.

thanks
