I would like to get some input of a home theatre I'm putting together. 95% of it will be for watching movies.
I have a rather large living room 24' x 18' with 8' ceilings. I have been going back and fourth with large speakers or sattelites. Next to my 60" Samsung LED television which is in a small corner, I have about 2' of room before hitting the fireplace. I was thing of using that space for the subwoofer. Don't have much room for front standing floor speakers. Anyhow my budget is around $1500 for the speakers and receiver.
I did alot of reading online of the different speakers (Polk Audio, Klipsch, NFT, BIC), and I was leaning to Definitive Technology. The reviews seem to be great. This the setup I was thinking about getting:
- 4 - Pro Monitor 1000 - front and rear
- 1 - Pro Center 2000 - center
- 1 - Super Cube 4000 - subwoofer
Not sure what kind of receiver Possibly the Onkyo TX-NR717, Yamaha RX-V575 or a Denon. I might even think of going with a 7.1 receiver, but my coach butts up to the back wall. Can't put speakers behind it. Maybe you can give me ideas on that too.
Check out bajawaverunner eBay store. They're the deftech refurb seller and lots of folks have used it with good results, myself included.
Use the money saved buying refurb to get a better sub.
I was just on the website. It shows parts like covers and speaker boxes. I don't see any refurbished woofers. Do you know a certain model other than the super cube which would be good to get? Also is there any particular receiver specifications I would need?
I don't see the PC2000 in-stock now, but check back every so often.
I'm fond of my Denon. Here's a link to the newer models. I'd suggest getting no less than the AVR-E300
Denon E300 = $400 (you can probably get this cheaper on Black Friday)
DefTech PM1000 x4 = $520
DefTech PC2000 = $300-350
Leaves you about $300-$400 for a sub. There are a lot of good budget subs out there but the SVS SB1000 or PB1000 are getting great reviews.
Wow. I really have my work cut out for me. You have given me a lot to look at. Thanks you for your help.
I was reading one of the forums of a guy who kept blowing 1000 speakers. Besides the common sense of turning the volume too high, is there a way avoid this from happening? Maybe a cutoff of some sort?
Newegg and their on-line store partners have all of these available now.
SM 450 = $350 a pair
SM 350 = $200 a pair
CLR 2002 = $350
( Only $20 to $70 more than a 5 speaker PM/PC setup )
I'd get the SVS SB1000 or SP1000 subwoofer for $500.
Total is $1450 plus whatever it costs for shipping.
IMO, this would be a better setup for the $1500 but would also need more robust mounting since they are larger and heavier than the PM/PC stuff.
Blu-Ray = 120 ( 24 Warner red2blu )
just 1 more pair of KLIPSCH Classic speakers...

Anyone have any thoughts on the Definitive Technology super cube III , I like the size of it? 11x11x11 but are those numbers correct. 16-200 hertz? using a bic pl200 now but limited space and this throws everything out of balance. any other suggestions
Unless u get it for really cheap it's not worth it. You could go with a SVS PC sub. They take up only 17 square inches of floor space.
Klipsch RF-62II, RC-500, RS-400, SVS PC12+,
Def Tech SC8000

The SB1000 is only 13x13x13 if you can spare a few extra inches... per the other guys on here that know way more than I do about subs, DefTech is known to inflate their sub's #s.
