I turn up the rear speakers. Itís almost unheard of as I have not found anyone with the same view. Itís weird, I know, but I feel more immersed. Some say it destroys the sound staging and such and it does but I donít care about sound staging.
I used to be the same way and thought there was no way I'd go without rear speakers. Then I decided to take the advice of most on this forum and put that money toward better front speakers. Then I got a DSP and set it mostly up (it's still a work in progress since I'm learning as I go) and my opinion has totally changed. I've never felt more immersed or "like I'm there" than I do now and my stuff isn't even totally dialed in yet. You may want to give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised. There are a couple nice amplifiers and DSP's for sale right now in the classifieds section that aren't terribly expensive that will do a lot better than that Audiocontrol and Boss. Get some Stereo Integrity TM65's and M25's and I bet you'll be amazed.
