Anyone using anything to raise the 52's a bit? Also curious if everyone is using the Sewell deadbolt banana plugs for the speakers?

I use the deadbolts with no problem. The 5 way on the back of these speakers seems a bit short in depth inside, but they still work no problem. Best banana plug I've ever had.

And I also have my 52s raised. I just built about a 4 inch box and laminated it since I work in a cabinet shop, lol. Filled it with sand and set it there under the speaker. Haven't had any problems /shrug

Does anyone have a suggestion for a ceiling mount solution for the SP BS 22-LR?

I'm looking to mount the speaker so it faces straight down

Thanks

Mount some netting on a hook and put the speaker inside the netting.

Anyone using/used these speakers in a room my size? If so, how do you like it?

Pioneer's Speaker Genius Hits Low Price Point

If I'm not mistaken and your drawing is to scale, you are sitting quite close to the TV and you have a lot of space behind you. I just bought the bookshelfs for my basement and I'm sitting about 11ft away from TV. Paired with the Dayton 12" sub I am more than impressed. So impressed I'm moving my blue ray player downstairs from my $3k setup upstairs. Cost downstairs full setup was $630 including receiver. Got the Amazon deal a couple months back woot woot! So crystal clear and great balance with all types of music and movies. Wait for a sale and buy them!!

I'm about 20 feet from the TV. I actually already have a pair of 52's (got them for $89 for a pair), the CS22 center, and a pair of 22's (my total for all was about $237). Just not sure of my purchase. I also picked up the Infinity 363 towers for $107 each. I'm coming from a Bose Accoustimass Series 3 Series IV speaker system with some ceiling mounted very generic rear surrounds.

I have a Denon X2000 I am going to be using to power whatever I decide on and will be pairing with the Outlaw LF-1 Ex subwoofer. Just want to be sure that whatever I settle on is a definitive step up and not end up disappointed.

Easiest way to find out is to hook em up.

For the best sound, you want a immovable speaker.

If you want the best sound dont get a pair of 22s. Dont know how thats significant to the netting idea though.

I understand that. But, don't really want to unbox them without knowing for sure or without having a good idea.

Unboxing doesn't void any warranty or change your ability to return these speakers. Also fairly simple as you just pop it open, slide off the 2 pieces of styrofoam, and you're ready to go. It'll probably take you longer to hook the speaker wire up than to unbox them.

From everything I've learned though, the 52s and the 363 are in the same relative category, the only real difference being a difference in how the upper range sounds to each person. The mids seem to be the same to most people, and the bass is moot for you as you'll be using a sub. So Bond basically boiled it down for you, just need to hook them up and compare in your room.
