Hi, I recently bought 4 definitive promonitor 1000 speakers to set up a 5.1 system. I have also taken definitive CS-8040 for the centre speakers. All bought from Best Buy. Will the system blend well? These are hooked to Yamaha RX-671.

I can't imagine it wouldn't. Promonitors are great speakers.

I recently added a pair of Pro Monitor 1000's as the Wide speakers in my 9.1 setup.  My original 7.1 speakers are Def Tech towers (BP7002, CLR 3000, BPVX and SVS Sub).  Needing a pair of direct radiators now, the Pro Monitor 1000 seemed to be the best bet to blend in with the others.  So far, initial testing is very positive.  I notice no timbre matching issues and the wide soundfield is incredible.  If I ever add the last 2 Height channels, I will likely stick with these.

Thankyou. So, the promonitor 1000 and the CS-8040 centre speakers will work fine for my 5.1 or 7.1 (i might add 2 more speakers if required)

You were not interested in the Definitive SM45 speakers?

I have the CS-8080 on the way and need to decide on front speakers and surrounds. I do have a subwoofer as well.

I am considering either Four x promonitor 1000's.

Also considering SM55 for the front speakers, and two 1000's as the surrounds.


Would I be better off with SM55 up front rather than 1000's? Doing a lot of research and having a tough time deciding which the fronts should be.
