Been using a Sony Soundbar/sub HDMI switcher system with my Panny 60GT50 plasma and the switching is starting to falter in it so it is time to move to a 2.0 or 2.1 system using the new Yamaha RC-V673 I just received. House is steel framed and on slab(with no easy way to pull wires) so I just want to run a 2.1 setup using Tower Speakers and a Sub.
Problem is I'd have to get a tower speaker that has a max width of 6" and that even rules out a set of Mythos 4 open box I can get for 600. I can not move the TV as the will not allow it. I will post a few pics and you will see what I am talking about. I really wanted to Bi-Amp a set of Fluance XLF7's for 429 shipped but they are 8" wide and won't fit.
Please look at the pics I have posted and LMK if you guys can recommend some small speakers I can wall mount and I will run a Sub with it.
I bought a Pinnacle SubSonix 10" 200W(pinnacle makes these for Amazon)sub for 119 but am thinking of returning it as I have not opened the box and am interested if there is a better sub to be found for 120. I think the Sub is fixed at 100HZ- not adjustable. So....http://www.amazon.com/Pinnacle-Speakers-SubSonix-10-Inch-Subwoofer/dp/B003IT70B2
1. Any towers I am missing that will fit 6" w/base max? This is only for HT viewing with some pandora music at lower levels.
2. Barring towers...Any small bookshelfs that I can wall mount(no in wall) that will do a room of 400 sq ft to 90-100 db with the Sub.
3. Should I return the Pinnacle SubSonix for something that is adjustable from 50 to 150HZ? Or can the receiver do that? I am very ignorant to the capabilities of the Yamaha 673 except I can bi amp it and it will do 4 ohm(to a limited degree for sure).
4. Do no want to spend more than 1000 for speakers and sub-we are not audiophiles the the open floorplan has the TV reoom dumping into a total volume of 1670 sq/ft w/12' ceilings. Money is an issue to the wife. I would prefer towers and a sub or just towers and since it is a 2.0/2.1 setup the position of the TV is driving the options.
The TV prevents speaker stands as the top of the TV is 54" high.
I'll shutup and attach a few pics.....Please LMK what you guys would suggest in a Slim tower, Swivel mountable wall monitors and whether to return that sub or not.Thanks so much for the groups expertise
PS...if you look in pictures in my OP., you can see the white atoms mounted up high on the 16" pillars.
