To match your studios you could do the Pros instead of the Elites to save some money. I would do 4 instead of 2 if your processor can handle it and you have enough amps. Depending on your layout, I might consider doing the angled version for better coverage.

Bought a used pair 4-5 years ago for HT, along with a 690. They sound fine and look nice, but are narrow and top-heavy. The oem spike/feet setup is crappy, replaced with outriggers from Soundocity.

While I don't have the 60s, I've had a full v5 system comprised of 100s, 590 and 20s for six years and I have been very happy with their performance. The imaging of the 100s is so good that for music sources I prefer not to engage the center channel. Another forum has a good review of the 60s in a $2,500 speaker evaluation.

I have had the Studio 20 v5's before and liked them. Also had the Sig 2 V3's and liked them. This is a bed room setup and so size was a worry. Got the 60 V5's home and will run the AVR setup later. They work fine so far.

The 60 v5 were very nice. If you liked your 20s, they will simply be fuller sounding and not require stands. I personally loved the V3 series best.

They sound good, but i have yet to run the AVR setup as it is setup for B&W speakers now so i am sure they don't sound as good as they will later,.

True, Atmos was engineered and is mixed based on direct radiating speaker. The use of Di/Bi - pole speakers does not translate well.

The plastic feet are not screwed in, just press fit.
I am reluctant to pry it out and damage the cabinet unless that is the only way.
Hope someone has experience with this.
Thanks for your help.

ST Dog was spot on in his guidance! Loved the old PS1000/PS1200 series sub; but what version do you have? When I sold them, I remember the PS and PW subs having butyl rubber surrounds.

My brother has 60's and I have 20's for our frount left and rights. Same centers,CC-470's. We once traded for a few weeks. I fell in love with the 60's. Some say you don't need large left and rights if you have subwoofers, which we both have in a 5.1 or 7.2 system. (mines 7.2 ,his 5.1 ) That thinking is wrong. Even my wife noticed the difference with the 60's.

I had studio 100's in the front and the 40's in the rear . Can't remember the centre , but it wasn't the biggest in the V2 series .

So I wanted 100's for the rear to , but they changed the drivers somewhat , so I sold all my V-2 generation speakers , tand bought the last generation studios made , I think V-5 or V6's?
Anyways, I now have 4 Studio 100's ,and a CC690 centre .
I have an older Paradigm sub , the PW 2200 I believe it is , a 12" woofer . Wish I had ordered two of Paradigms matching piano black subs to match the other studios , but to late .

I am driving these with a Marrantz av7005 prepro and a Marrantz MM7055 amplifier .
Recently , I was going to purchase the Anthem AVM60 and a P5 amplifier , but I have lost interest in the Anthem prepro after hearing about so many Ethernet connection issues .
I do really like having a built in music client on my prepro also , as opposed to using my iPad to access my NAS music drive .

I like the way my harmony remote interfaces with everything right now , and it's going to be hard to accept change .

I wanted the bigger amp , as I believe the studios deserve better lol .
The Marrantz is said to 140 watts per channel . I suspect that's two channels driven when lightning strikes . The Marrantz draws 660 watts peak , where as the Anthem P5 draws a max of 3600 watts . Quite a significant difference.
I was also looking at Arcam amps , but not sure of that decision either . Seem way to pricey for what you get .

Was debating to keep my Marrantz prepro for now and buy Anthems A5 instead of the P5 .
I figure 225 watts per channel will probably give me tighter midbass etc , than my Marrantz amp .
I'm open to suggestions. Btw , I'm pissed they quit making the Studios

I have 100's v5, 690, 60's v2 and 20's for the other 4 speakers. I went from using a Pioneer Elite SC-85 to power everything, which was rated like your Marantz, to an Anthem MCA 50 and P7, the difference in sound was spectacular...then I went to the Anthem AVM 60 and it is even better! You will be pleased should you choose to add the external amplifiers.

The AVM60 is very tempting. I have a pretty good audio dealer here in town , and he came up with $10,000 for both the Anthem P5 amplifier and the AVM60 prepro.
Thought it would be nice to keep everything Anthem if I could . If all else fails , a person could add an additional music network with a better dac .

My main concern right now is having a decent amplifier to drive the Studio 100's .
I am going to turn my living room around 90 degrees , so maybe while I'm at it , I will have three 20 amp recepticals installed . That way if I ever get the P5 , I'll have lots of headroom current wise .

What's wrong with the much cheaper and matching Anthem MCA 525 for the Studios? The P5 seems like total overkill. The speakers cannot handle that much power. It's also the majority of the 10K cost. 10K man, that's Persona 3F money.

Studio 100:

Maximum Input Power
230 watts

Yes that does make sense , and will probably be my final choice .
What had me considering the P5 , was when I read at a forum that a guy had tried the A5 , then the dealer let him try the P5 . He claimed with his studio 100's , that there was no comparison, as he claimed they sounded much tighter in the bass/midbass .
The P5 is a PITA to me , as it's 130 pounds and requires two recepticals to run it properly .

I kind of like the older A5 also . It would be nice to have everything Anthem , seeing as there Paradigms parent company . Kind of sucks , as they don't make a blue ray player anymore . I like to match my components somewhat

I owned the Anthem Blu-ray player. It did not compare well in the end.

If you want to keep everything Anthem and keep the costs down I would do AVM60 & MCA525 or MRX1120.

I agree, Paradigms are fairly efficient. I've used many amps with my signature series and while some of the more powerful ones provide slightly more bass, I've never considered using the weaker one as a time I missed out on anything.

Oh really? I have the Studio 10V5 and always wondering if the newer 15B sound better. What setup did you ran the 15B? I have my Studio 10V5 running in bi-amp mode using the Anthem MRX 510 which sounds refine and very musical.

Subwoofer Match for Monitor 7 v.6 Towers

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone would know what the best/most appropriate Subwoofer match would be for a pair of Paradigm Monitor 7 v.6 towers. Currently running with a Paradigm PDR-10 v.4 but think it's not enough. Would like to stick with Paradigms since the entire system is in the same series and brand.
Open to any feedback and advise. Would like to make an appropriate decision and. Or anything that is over powering.

Thanks in advance!

Subwoofers really, truly do NOT have to be from the same maker and model series as the main speakers. There's no "timbre matching" to be had at those frequencies. Your Monitor speakers wouldn't be in such a class to need the high end of Paradigm's subs, and in their appropriate price ranges you can get far better performance out of Hsu, Rythmik, SVS and others.

How big is your room, where are you and speaker placed in it, and how loud do you listen to movies?

I totally agree. I had the 3F before upgrading to the 9H. The 3F with couple of decent subs > 9H by itself.

So are the Pros a better match sonically to the Studios? Let's say V5? Or are the Elites a better match? I am looking at getting 4 ceiling speakers, and I want it to match as closely as possible.

How big is your room, where are you and speaker placed in it, and how loud do you listen to movies?
Room Dimensions: Living Room, measuring approximately 18' x 12' x 9'H
Primary Uses: 75% HT / 25% Music (typically EDM style)
Listening Habits: Mostly listening at modest volumes (5 year old in house as well), but when empty, I listen at high volumes (measured at around 102 DB in the room with current setup).
Appearance Requirements: Needs to look nice. Somewhat utilitarian is okay, but nothing brutally ugly. Does not have to be a piece of art either.

Definitely liking the look of the SVS line up...the HSU and other I don't really like the appearance TBH

I was thinking of replacing my Studio 60's with either the Prestige 95f or the Persona 3F...I know they are different lines and one being the top of it's line and the other the beginning, but can someone convince me of which ones I should get ? I'd say it's 85% movies and 15% music in my case.

JVC DLA-400RS, Elunevision 120" 2:35 Cinemascope AT screen, Marantz AV8802a Pre/Pro, Samsung UBD-K8500 UHD player, OPPO UDP-203, NAD M25 amp, Anthem PVA-4, 4x Paradigm CI Elite E80-R ceiling speakers, Paradigm Studio 60 v5, Paradigm Studio 20 v5, Paradigm Prestige 15B, Paradigm Studio CC-690 v5, Paradigm Studio Sub12 X 2, Richard Gray 1200c Custom power conditioner.
