I've been trying to make a decision on which surround speakers to build. I plan to build a set of 6pi corner horns and a 3pi center at some point, but I need surrounds now.

I'm leaning towards one of the Fusion 10 models that use an Eminence Delta 10A and SEOS waveguide. Might be overkill for surrounds, but I like the idea of having the same bass driver all around. I figured the voicing would be more similar using the exact same drivers for mid/bass in mains and surrounds and similar drivers and horns for the highs.

What I don't know is how much different the Delta 10A will sound baffle mounted in the surrounds vs. horn loaded in the pi's. Any opinion would be much appreciated.

I use my HT probably 60% music (with Dolby prologic 2) 40% movies.
