Good times, good times!
Excellent A/V store and one of the best in the country. Their service is exemplary. I've been his customer for 30+ years.

BTW, my Triton Ones sound even better in my home than they did in the store. You are welcome to hear them in my home environment.

So I am looking at the Supersat series again. I have demod them in person a month back.

Current TV size 55" and room is 11' 6" deep by 12' 6" wide.

My thought would be the Supersat 60 for a center for sure.

Would the Supersat 60 look odd as Mains as well since they would be taller than the height of the TV? Would it be better to go with the Sat 50 as L/R Mains

I would go with Supersat 3s in the rears.

These would be replacing my current setup of - 5.0 setup. Front/Left NTL3, Center N3s, Rear Left/Rear Right AV1RS Gr-Research speakers.

Only other on wall considering is Martin Logan Motion SLM & SLM XL or Paradigm Millenia LPXL.

Hi cburbs,

You'll want to consider a pair of GoldenEar subs to take care of the lower octaves that the Supersats can't reproduce. A pair of GoldenEar Supersubs will enable a higher crossover frequency that will minimize sub location, blend in with the SuperSats, smooth out the frequency response and help deal with those pesky room modes below 300Hz.

Marantz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, aTV, Harmony Home Control remote, KEF E301+T101, MiniDSP (2x4)+(10x10HD)+(DDRC-88A), Emotiva 2xXPA-5 (Gen2), Rythmik 2xF12G+2xF8, HiMedia Q16, LG 55EC9300.

Oh I forgot to mention I have 2 15" SI subs so I am good on that part.

Anyone with thoughts on the following -
Current TV size 55" and room is 11' 6" deep by 12' 6" wide.

My thought would be the Supersat 60 for a center maybe.

Would the Supersat 60 look odd as Mains as well since they would be taller than the height of the TV? Would it be better to go with the Sat 50 as L/R Mains

I would go with Supersat 3s in the rears.

I don't think it would look strange with 60s. I have larger towers that far exceed the TV size, so at some point, yes, it does matter, but I would also consider upgrading your TV at some point as well. When UHD becomes more prevalent, a larger screen is needed to get the maximum benefit of that technology.

Are you against a Super Center X with Aon 2's all around?

2's won't work for rears. Need to be able to hang on wall. Trying to clean up space as now that the floor plan changed the room is smaller.

Also trying to avoid speakers and stands. Interesting thought with center x and Aon2s though. Might have to listen to them.

You could use something like this to hang all of the bookshelf speakers on the wall. They work well. I just think you'll get much better SQ this way.

Too bulky for the layout do use those as rears.

Speakers have been ordered.

I went with the supersat 50s as L/R mains, 60c(center channel), and Sat3's for rears. They only had the Sat3s in stock so they had to order the rest.

How would you mount the rears. see rough drawing of back of room.

Again room is 11' 6" deep by 12' 6" wide.

1 - sidewall
2 - backwall
3 - corner of wall - probably not a good idea

My current speakers are on the back wall. I don't recall if I ever had small speakers like this for rears so reason I am asking.

Since they are only sold through their Dealer network, I would check with your local dealer.

I'm looking to buy the two plus but I'm wondering does that make sense since I have dual rythmik vx 15 inch subs. Should I just go for the five instead? I listen 70 percent music and the room is about 2700 cubic feet with the room opening up to the stairs to the upper level. I really want to get the two plus but I don't want to overspend if I don't have to. I'm a bassaholic and I'm coming from the Polk Lsim 707's .
