As Dave alluded in a previous post, until the T/S params for this new (special issue?) driver are known, it's rather a bit of conjecture to recommend particular enclosure style and number of drivers per each for this application.

Also note that whenever HT or 5.1 (or beyond) are mentioned, I think a lot of folks (myself certainly among them) assume employment of powered sub(s) that would permit the use of smaller drivers that are more readily accommodated in "skinny towers", or small wall mounts (such as the splayed surrounds mentioned in your other thread)

Or multiple CHR

If use multiple drivers, how to get them to be 8ohm impedance?

Also what is the best solution for the sub-woofer for both rooms? (Close and open space?)

I don't know why you are so stuck on 8 ohm impedance?

I already have 2 AVR that are 8 ohm impedance, and I want to match them.

Is it ok for HT system to use 8ohm and 16ohm together in the same setting?

Yes it is OK. And with a typical AVR higher impedance surrounds are probably a good thing. Leaves more current for the mains.

Thank you for the clarify that for me.

somehow I ended up with the Pensil-10.2 for my first pair of Markaudio's drivers, and they sound very nice.

I'll use them as my front speakers. Then I'll build one sealed box using Alpair-10 as center speaker, and a pair of Pensil R70.3 for the surround speakers.

to be continue...

looking good - sounds like you'll have a very decent "little" HT rig when the sawdust settles
