I am considering purchasing your studio monitor speakers for video work. I am working in 5.1 surround sound, and wondering if the center channel could be the E44 on its side. The Left and Right would either be the Eris 3.5 or 4.5 pair. (Same for rear.)

In case it matters: Feeding the monitors using a HDMI audio extractor/converter (HDMI > RCA connections for all the embedded audio channels) and Resolve software with BlackMagic Decklink output card, which outputs LPCM multi-channel over HDMI.

Working in a small basement area. (I almost worry the E44 is too big.)

Thanks for any pre-sales advice.

A follow up, and maybe I answer myself. What about 3 of the E5XT's for the Left, Center and Front? All matched, still on the small side. Wide enough for center, even standing up. Thoughts?
