side surround choice

Hello all,
I'm replacing a Polk wireless F/X surround unit that was damaged in a flood. I have $350 with which to replace it, although I can go a little higher ($400). I'd prefer to go the non-wireless route this time. I have attached a rough drawing of my family room. This issues I run into in this room are that the couch must be placed no greater than 1.5 ft from the back wall which has windows, and the left side of the room is open to the kitchen, forcing me to mount the side speakers on stands. The ceiling is 8 ft. My current setup is as follows:

FR and FL Polk Tsi400
Center Polk CS10
Sub Polk Psw 505
Marantz NR1602 receiver
JVC 61" DLP tv

Usage will be 85% movies and gaming and 15% music. I haven't been able to test any speakers, but have been looking at discussions and reviews of Polk F/XiA4 and FXiA6 as well as the Klipsch RS-42 II. I'd really appreciate input on this decision. Given my room layout, would bi/dipole speakers work best? I can place them up to 4 ft away from the primary listening position (couch). If not, do you have any other suggestions? I will be moving in three years, so this is not a long-term setup.

Thanks!
Kim

Side Surround Placement Help - 2 options...

AVS'ers: I'd like some opinions on the best way to implement side surrounds in a great room that is being built. Details about the room and equip are at the bottom. I'd like some advice/guidance on is how to best choose the in-wall location for my side surrounds. The Left Side Surround has limited options given that on the L side of the room (orientation from the listening position), there is a 15' x 7' opening to the dining area so the only area mounting location is 110º from MLP above the...

Advice on Side Surround Speaker Placement

I moved to a new house a few months back and have finally gotten the living room set up for the household home theater. I'm satisfied with the location of the front speakers, but I don't know what I should do for the side surrounds. This is just a 5.1 system because the sofa has to be against the rear wall, so there's nowhere for the additional rear surround speakers to go. :mad: The side surround speakers are Polk M40s and they're just on tables on either side of the sofa. I'd like to wall...

Side and rear surround placement

How important is it for side surrounds and rear surrounds to be placed at the same height? I have a riser in the back of my room and will likely need to lift the rear surrounds higher than my sides so that the rear row doesn't hit their head on the speakers. The speakers in question are volt 10 coaxials in the angled enclosure. Thanks ...

How Is 633 Side Window Surround Trim Removed?

I need to remove the RH window surround trim from a '84 633 to replace the damaged pieces on mine (which have already been removed, though not by me and perhaps not correctly). Inspecting that damaged trim it is apparent that it screws into clips on the gutter rail, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to remove the delicate bright metal strip down the center of the trim which allows access to those screws (#4 in the illustration below) without damaging it. Apparently, the forward tri...

1st surround system-Yamaha RX-V677 good choice? speakers?

Hello, I've never had a surround system or an audio receiver before. I took a look at some more recent models and am currently thinking of buying the Yamaha RX-V677 7.2-channel Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver with AirPlay. My living room TV setup is in a medium-sized room. I'm not sure what speakers to get. I thought maybe Yamaha as well, and was looking at these, Yamaha NS-P40BL 5.1 Speaker Package (Black, Set of 6). I like to watch action-oriented Blu-Rays, that have Dolby 5.1 and 7.1 and DTA-MA m...
