AlIIIs for rear surrounds

I have never heard the ALIIIs.

Would they make a good rear surround speaker?

Sure, but it would be one HELLUVA expensive surround speaker~

Re: AlIIIs for rear surrounds

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?

Re: AlIIIs for rear surrounds

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.

Re: AlIIIs for rear surrounds

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!

Re: AlIIIs for rear surrounds

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.

Re: AlIIIs for rear surrounds

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
