Beta 10s are a good compliment, but they can be hard to find from what I hear.

But, in my opinion, it isn't critical to have an exact match with the rear surround channels. Just look for a speaker with the same size tweeter and the same material drivers.

I know the betas use metallic drivers.


These are a good match and a great price:

those look great and most definite great price. yeah i cant find beta 10's anywhere but these will do just great. now would i get two pairs of these to complete the rear surround and back surround? or would i need some kind of different speakr for the back surround?

You could always use another pair of Beta 20's

The only downside to that is the Betas being 13" deep.

You could use them for all the surrounds.
