Barrie, Ontario, Canada

Klipsch RF-82 II, RS-52 II, RB-81 II

In a few months I'll have JTR triple 12's L C R

If you're posting subs, Seaton SubMersive HP. I also have a SvS PC-13 Ultra, and a Polk PSW-125.

And as I have been saying on the subwoofer thread.........How come this thread is not a sticky???

I have given several demos to Forum members lately. Not sure if this specific Thread was the impetus or if it was just general posting in the speaker & subwoofer areas.

I agree, this and the Subwoofer Thread should be Sticky.

First post updated. It's official...We're international now! Thanks crabalocker!

For everyone asking about this being a sticky, Someone will have to recommend it by sending a PM to one of the moderators for the speaker forum. They are the ones needing to update this.

I'll jump in. posted in the 'sub demo' thread already...
I have HSU HB1 mk2 for front and surrounds, and the HC1 mk2 for center.
Also have a Polk set ... Monitor 70's for L/R, 50's for surrounds, CS2 center

Jonesborough, TN (Tennessee's oldest city- our 2 high schools are Daniel Boone and David Crockett !! ... and no, I'm not from 'round here )

I would say the Polks are 'brighter' with an emphasized mid/upper range, and the HSU's are more 'laid back', with more detail and clarity across the board.

We never grow until we're pushed outside the boundaries we are comfortable within...

I live in Jonesboro Arkansas, which is around a hour and 15 minutes from Memphis. I have a Definitive Technology set up and an Ascend Acoustics set up that consist of:

Definitive Technology BP-30's (L/R)
Definitive Technology C/L/R-2000 (Center)
BP1.2x (side surrounds)
MFW-15
Anthem AVM-20 pre-amp
Adcom amps
Sony BDP-360 bluray player
Emerson 32 inch flat screen tv

My Def Tech BP-30s are identical to their top of the line BP-7000's, with the only difference being that the BP-30's do not have a built in sub. They do have 4 mids and 2 tweeters in each tower. Same thing with the C/L/R-2000, it matches their top of the line C/L/R-3000, only difference is mine does not have a built in subwoofer.

My other setup is mainly for 2 channel, it consist of:

Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1's
Ascend Acoustics Sierra center
MFW-15 subwoofer
Powered by a Yamaha RV-X663 receiver
NAD 514 cd player

If your ever in the North East Arkansas area, feel free to stop by for a listen!

Archea...I live in Iowa City. I don't have much in the way of "high end" gear...but do have some decent speakers. I have a 5.1 which currently has a mismatched center, which I need to correct and a 2 zone 2.0 in the bedroom. As soon as I get another 5.1 AV-r, I will have a set up in the basement.
1. EMPtek E5ti towers
2. Def Tech SM450s
3. Polk M40s
4. SLS Q line gold satelittes
Retired and in the closet
5. Cheap-o pyle pro L-C-R set
6. Even worse set of Bose computer speakers

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub

When is the last time the master list was updated? With great thread come great responsibrity...

Here is mine:

Chantilly, VA --- Klipsch 5.1 RF-7 II Home Theater System: RF-7 II x 2, RC-64 II, RS-62 II x 2 --- popalock

I intentially put in the link to the "Manufacturers" website. I figured this practice would assist others (newbies & the like) in their research. Of course you can take it out if you like.

WHY IS THIS THREAD NOT A STICKY...?

Middletown, RI ---

My list of speakers is ever changing as I am constantly building new designs. Happy to demo here anytime or even bring systems to enthusiasts in New England for setup in 'familiar surroundings'.

I only own one "off the shelf" set (Sonance Director 20 monitors) but usually have 3 or 4 different 2.0/2.1 systems that can be set up in short order.

HT LCR system currently consists of active, in-wall line arrays (12 - 5" midbass flanked by 30 - 3/4" tweets in each module). These are known as "The Compensators" and are in a state of evolution at the moment.

Currently have 3 floorstanding designs completed (one using HiVi and Vifa drivers, the other 2 are Dayton Reference Series), with a fourth in process.

Also have a small fullrange desktop that can double as a rear channel for more 'intimate' theaters, and small a 2-way standmount that has often prompted the question..."where is the sub?" Two different standmount speakers, and some in-walls.

Yes, I like building speakers!

12 year old Yamaha receiver, amps from Carver and Behringer, and a few different Bluray and CD players round out the mix.

PM sent!

You have the EXACT set of speakers I have gotten an interest in after doing research online and it would be awesome if I could actually hear the setup.

Additionally, if anyone in the DMV area has any mid-high end setups and would be willing to demo, please PM me or post in here! I am going to be in the market very soon and would love to hear setups. My primary driver is to get as close to movie theater like sound as possible for movie watching. And I will be listening to music too, just not as important to me as the movie watching experience.

Thanks!

Your room is pretty damn big though. How high was your ceiling pre-buildout? I need to take the time to read through your thread.

How does it sound?
