Nothing like an outlet sale to force me to rethink everything I thought I'd figured out . . . ha!
Our living room is 20x13, so a touch over 2000 cubic feet. Viewing and sitting distance is the 20 foot side . . . and about 2/3rds of that right side wall is open to the rest of the house. Had myself convinced I don't listen loud like I used to . . . mostly music and the kids movies, so just get an SB-1000. Which morphed into well, maybe a PB-2000 . . . which turned into eh, maybe dual SB-1000. Which turned into . . . you know, just get two SB-2000s and be done with it. And now there's the PB12-Plus in the outlet for $999, less than dual new SB-2000s . . . and of course a boat load of SB13-Ultras in the outlet for $1199 . . . again, cheaper than two new SB2000s. And the realization that I'd be more than willing to crank it louder for good measure . . . Blu-rays, SACDs . . . I used to rock out, I swear.
So back to the drawing board. Not sure if I am venting, thinking out loud, or looking for suggestions, hahaha! In case it's the latter . . . starting to think having a single Ultra at that price is too hard to pass up . . . although knowing I could get some benefit with the dual setup. But I am caught with placement . . . so if I did duals, it would be between the mains and that's the only spot possible (picture attached for reference). JBL L-890s currently up front, with an LC2 center . . . and L-820s for rear speakers. Denon 4100 to power everything . . . which means dual outs, and XT32 is available to me if needed.
