Honestly, I'll probably go with whatever Tom recommends and I will be more than happy with it.


Questions:

1. Since the subs could be 20-30ft from AVR, I assume I run Coax through walls and ceilings then use F-Type to RCA wall plates?
2. Since I have about a week or so until I order I want to get a jump start on ow you position and tune these things. I will start with the floor crawl for the first one. How do you place second? What methods can I use to tune? I have seen REW mentioned. Are there clear steps on what to do to get best sound.
3. I will be upgrading AVR and will get either XT or XT32. It depends on price. Do either of these alleviate most of the tuning?

Thanks. Once again, I am hoping to get a jump start on how to make these beasts sound great in my environment

Whatever you do go get Blue Jeans Cables LC-1 sub cable if you are running them that long, it is even wall rated. Excellent cable especially for longer runs.

The room is 23x26x7.5. For once in my life, I wish the room was smaller
SHould I get a USB mic or SPL or both?
Wow that is a big room. I have a SPL and REW with USB mic (minidsp UMIK-1). I use the SPL for some tweaks, but us REW for overall tuning. Dual V1800 all the way! My room is 14x20x7.5 and dual V1800 are great and I still yearn for more, but they easily handle any of my listening and I love the deep bass/lows. Is the room enclosed? I actuall got some decent room gain from mine that even handled the Edge of Tomorrow scene well down to 10Hz. I posted some REW charts a few posts back.

Yes, two subs can reduce nulls and peaks at the listening position, however, I’m not sure why you think you need dual subwoofers without trying one first. That seems to me to be a cart before the horse and a waste of money until you know how one subwoofer performs. Just my opinion….
Although I'm a big fan of dual subs and I think they fill out the room better and create better bass, you make a good point. Sometimes one sub can do beautifully on it's own.

I would audition the PSA speakers by taking advantage of the in home trial. If you can, see if you can bring home the PSB speakers and let them go head to head with the PSA and then keep the ones you like best.
