    No idea how you would control them. Why one RP10 though?


    It would probably sound pretty good.

    . . . . 4 krk tops? 1 Sub..... 4.1? O_o
    Besides, thats a bit overkill for home theater and probably not gonna come off as wonderful, it's gonna be LOUD
    Best idea for home entertainment stuff IS an actual home entertainment setup

    in my studio is 2 krk rokit 8's wouldnt want anything bigger dont want to totally screw my hearing up, id use the rp10 on its side as a mid field for the soundbar type thing, obe the sub behind the seating, and the 4 corners with rp8s too give good issolation, thinking of using a bass managment system with an optical or hdmi input

    you want speakers, not powered monitors, for home theatre setup. And a decent amp/receiver that will manage the power between them appropriately for you. You're trying to find software to do something nobody does.

    for starters an RP10 for center... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY overkill since thats mainly used for only voice in movies and games. Also the speakers are extremely directional for optimum hearing. They're meant for studio use, not home entertainment use. I would suggest looking at some other forums dealing with home theater audio. Also THESE MONITORS ARE HUUUUGE!
