As you're going with the Yamaha sub (FSW050/FSW150), please note the upper end frequency response is 160Hz according to the owner's manual here: http://download.yamaha.com/api/asset...asset_id=63946. The low end drops off quickly below 40Hz so you'll start to loose clean output on frequencies below this.

Please also note that the Min10 will need a high crossover of at least 150Hz according to tests done by thread starter Perpendicular. If the Min10 speakers are significantly away from the walls where bass reinforcement is not available, a higher crossover frequency maybe required. Your Yamaha receiver will let you know the crossover frequency when the auto-calibration is run.

Placement of the sub will be key in having a smooth crossover transition between the Min10 speakers and Yamaha sub. If you haven't done so, carry out the sub crawl test (shown in post number 2,634) to find the best location of the sub in the room relative to your Main Listening Position (MLP).

i got that yamaha slim subwoofer,
i need no more than half of it's volume dial but i still feel the shock wave from sofa i love it

as you mentioned, i should set the crossover at 160Hz
so that min 10 handle >160Hz while subwoofer handle =< 160Hz
sounds perfect much

I didn't do the auto-calibration yet, but i think the system will set higher level of subwoofer
becoz, i placed the subwoofer behind the soft (it's firing toward the back wall)
will try the subwoofer crawl test later after really config all the speakers

I have to scarify the quality coz changes are all about my 1 yr old son
sold the sony 5.1 set
brought a new receiver and 5.1 speakers and place them as high as possible
hide the slim subwoofer behind the sofa
i know it's not perfect, but i like the sound (and the shock)

one thing i love min 10 beside 1st see the price tag $37 is the small size:
it made my 9'x9' living room bigger in contrast :P

thank you very much for your advise

You need to use the mounts that are designed for the Minx satellite speakers. Availability and where to purchase is dependent on your location.

Are there any aftermarket wall mounts out there that people have used for the Minx 22?

Quick bit of advice. I own a 5.1 Mission M3 cubed surround system which I'm pretty pleased with, paired with a Marantz NR1607 AVR. Whilst having major house renovations done, some idiot (me) knocked over a speaker stand whilst rummaging through storage and savaged one of the speakers.

Finding it hard to get single replacement M3 satellites, so am steering towards replacing either my two surrounds (on stands) with Minx 22s or my two fronts with Minx 12s (size limited cubby holes), and keeping the other three as M3s. Alternatively I could get a single minx 12 to replace the damaged speaker as the center (again size limited cubby hole).

Has anyone owned/tested both the M3 and the Minx 12s?

Are they similar enough to mix up? Thoughts on which pair to replace? Or replace the center?

Cheers
