Main speakers: Reynolds Advance A-2's (circa 1980)...Peerless soft dome silk tweeters, 8" long throw drivers, 10" passive radiators...they pull down to about 27 Hz +/- 3 dB. Weight: 70 lbs each.
Center: Boston Acoustics C-225. Nothing special unless your trying to match timbre to the mains. Both New England makers, both with heavy construction, identical specs and soft dome tweeters.
Surrounds: Precision Acoustics Cubes. Who? What? Why? Don't laugh, these little dudes integrate seamlessly with the rest of the speakers. Please note, they are above ear level and behind the listening sweet spot - as Dolby suggests.
Subwoofer: SVS PB12-NSD, the Widow Maker, pulls down to 18 Hz and explodes pets and sandbags..now in storage along with the Genesis II's that were the surrounds pre-condo.
Comments: Moved into the condo, Bought a highly positive reviewed HTIB from a well know audio company and...it sucked. Even the dog laughed. Sold it on Craigslist for half what it cost.
With the help of my friend, Altered Dez, an audio engineer, we took some of my old school stuff, matched the specs with the new stuff and dialed it all in.
The result is big speakers that push big air and sound terrific in a smaller space at any volume.
Thanks for reading.
