I am Looking SERIOUSLY (like might buy these Monday, it's Friday Night now) for my Living Room. Currently it has a 42" Vizio in the corner in a built in. We bought a Samsung 65" 3D HDTV at Costco (7050 model) to Hang above the Fireplace in our Living Room and I have a Mantle above my Fireplace and below my SOON TO BE HUNG TV, so I can out my center channel there below the TV.
My room is already wired for 5.1, but never used it and each of the wires are hidden behind a Wall Plate / Junction Box. Guess What? ORB makes Junction Box Mounts, so install is going to be CLEAN and easy! Bought a Denon AVR-X2000 3D Receiver that I am pairing with my Samsung 3D TV and speakers, etc.
OK I am 95% sure I am going to Pull the trigger on the ORB Mod2X Home Theater Speaker System, so That just means I have 2 Balls (Speakers.......LOL) per each surround speaker. I am ALSO Upgrading the Center Channel to a Mod4X (4 Balls) and also going to Upgrade the Super 8 Sub to the Uber 10 Sub. The Sub is my Biggest Question which I will ask shortly!
So I am getting this Mod 2X for all surround speakers and a QUAD for the Center and their Uber 10" Sub Woofer:
2 Left Front
2 Right Front
2 Back Right Rear
2 Back Left Rear
4 Center Channel Speakers
1 10" Uber Sub
I am getting these because since I already have junction boxes covered by face plates, the Install of these will be super easy, and clean, and will go well with the new Samsung 65" 3D TV! Again, I have a Media Room Upstairs, so this sould be a HUGE Upgrade from my prior set up of a 42" Vizio TV in the corner in a built in Cabinet. LOL
Here is my MAIN QUESTION and please guys help me. I HOPE someone reads this soon because I want to pull the trigger Monday. It's the SUB!!!!
I'm OK with the speakers, they are going to be great for my set up, not AMAZING, but for what they are (a little metal ball), and if you set your expectations accurately, and expect to hear a great sounding 3" good looking and compact speaker solution, I am sure you will be satisfied.
I am Upgrading the Sub to the Uber 10" and I am sure it is a decent upgrade, BUT, if another SUB will WORK with these ORB Speakers, I might want to supplement a NON ORB Sub in the equation. I'm not an audiophile and don't understand the technical specs of the subs and how they work with the other speakers, etc.
My Question is Should I get another sub? If so, and I think I want to get another sub, WHAT SUB will work with this set up?
I was looking at an SVS PB1000 or SVS PB2000 or SB1000 or SB2000 (Not sure if I want ported or Non with my ORB set up?) Also to remind you, I have a Denon AVR-X2000 Receiver.
Also was looking at a Hsu VTF-2 MK4 subwoofer or even a VTF-3 MK4 Subwoofer?
Again, I am not sure if I can Add a LARGE Sub with these smaller speakers? What Size can I and SHOULD I Get please?????
Or, would you guys just stay with the Uber 10 from ORB???
