Well I finally got the surround set up, im using a marantz reciever and four parts express book shelves for the rear for now. Its ok but lots of room for improvment . I may try some diy ribbon/mid drivers for the center and rear.

Yes, I run AL-IIIs in the rear of my HT, driven by a TFM-55x.

I like it, but you could have an entire other great system in the garage with those AL-IIIs~

Thanks, guys, for the kind words. I just realized I replied to a 2011 thread. I doubt if my "advice" was very useful. :rolleyes:
