What would people use as surrounds to match 2245/2226/2247/2405 at the front?
I asked (with more detail) in the technical forum with no response - but maybe this is more of an opinion type question and better here? because I can't believe that the enthusiastic opinions of JBL fans don't extent to _surround_ speakers!

Your asking a very hypothetical question based on components.In order to answer your question one needs more info as to speaker cabinet design.
size of room, processing equipment etc...

Well, it's all pretty much what you'd expect from familiarity with the components. 2245 subs in 11cuft bass reflex cabinets with 2nd order Linkwitz/Riley cross over at 66Hz to the 2226s. Then the 2247s kick in at 666Hz on custom horns that are an intermediate between the 236x (used in JBL pro cinema) and the 235x that actually fit the 1.5 inch throat. The 2405s cut in just below 7 kHz.
Room's about 8m deep 3.6 wide and cathedral roofed 3.6m tall.
