    What's your preference? I think Long throw drivers are best to get if you don't want to keep upgrading if you get a bigger place to put your audio gear and home theatre...

    Well, I'd say I prefer long throw (high xmax) on my subs and pro style (aka high sensitivity, aka low throw, etc.) drivers for my mains.

    Cool, well most subs are all long throw, however I think it's also good to have long throw speakers, because most Amplifiers and Receiver have a distance setting... Nearfield or Monitors usually don't... However, it would be good to have both, like for zone 2 on my Receiver, I was thinking of getting some nearfield studio monitor speakers :)

    This is my system minus my second sub, which I have on the other side of room. Also, my other speakers for my 7.1 surround...:) Excuse it's a bit messy and my camera not so good lol.

    So, you have two sets of speakers in the front? Is that for a 2.1 system and then separate speakers for a 7.1?

    It's 7.2, however only the 2 front top speakers are the ones hooked up, I might hook the others up for 9.2 as front high speakers :) My other sub is hooked up, but not in the picture because it's on the other side of the room :)
