StevesTivo,

She is a very understanding woman. She considers the theater to be my room and I can basically do what I want with it. She enjoys it but mostly shakes her head at some of the things I've done. The 1000lbs of sand in the stage may have been the most interesting reaction...

Healthy skepticism is the best component for your HT

Ok so would a Paradigm Reference Studio CC V.2 be a major inprovement over my CC-350 ?
I do plain to get a pair of 40's soon & replace my MM.
If I found a used Paradigm Reference Studio CC v.2 what would be a fair used price ?
Thanks The 570 is to large to fit on my tv & $$$$

Yes. Check Audiogon for average rates.

But if you get v.2's, get all v.2's (don't mix).

Lots of Paradigm owners here. The SPOT's Paradigm section is pay only, so maybe a lot of people migrated here to AVS.

Are 40's front ported and 20's rear ported? Would it be better to get 40's then if I wanted to push the speakers right against a wall?

Madcutter,

I know for sure the 20s are front ported. The 40s have a front port but not sure if there is one in the rear or not (never seen one in person). Not sure about mounting them to the wall, though. Hopefully the experts will ring in.

Where better to ask this question than the Paradigm owner thread

I have posted this question in a different thread here. What do you guys feel with regards to Paradigm 100s quality for 2 channel sit down listening? I am driving them with Sherbourn 7/2100 amp. Anyone getting a sweeter top end using any particular amp?

So I'm setting up my system this weekend with V3 60s as fronts, V3 CC470 as center, and V3 20s as rears.

As I mentioned earlier, I don't have a sub yet. I'm assuming this won't make much of a difference with music, but what about movies? Also, should I set the receiver (Arcam AVR300) to amplify the CC470 and 20s as large or small speakers?

That's basically the same set-up I've got, except that I'm using Paradigm Reference SR15's in-ceiling speakers instead of the 20's as rears. Anyway, I'm in the market for a new subwoofer, too, so let me know if you audition anything good.

What's your budget for the sub?

(Apologies from me for asking a different question during this giant thread)

I am expecting to purchase a couple of S2s to use as back speakers in a 7.1 set up. I want to mount them on a wall, without drilling into the speaker.

Does anyone have a recommended wall mount?

(I would ask whether the Arcam AVP700 + P1000 would make a good separate amp plan for a Signature surround setup (S8, C5, ADP, S2, Servo), but I don't want to hijack the thread!)

Cheers

$500 to $1K. Can I get anything good for that "little?" I'd like to get the Paradigm Servo, but $1,500 seems a little steep for just the low notes.

s2silber,

I know these are not Paradigm subs, but they are in your budget and both go to 20Hz or slightly below. Good tight bass on both.

Save your pennies there is a difference.

But, if you can't wait tons of folks on the forum love the SVS or HSU subs so you can get by with something in your price range.

What size is your room? Mines is 15 x 20 and I'm quite happy with my HSU VTF-2.

If I were buying now though, I'd get the VTF-3, which wasn't out yet when I got mine, and I couldn't wait. It was well worth the $450 I spent though.
Check them out here.

The size of the "dedicated listening area" is much like yours -- 21 (L) X 15 (W). I put it that way because, beyond a half wall divider on the lengthwise side, the space extends into the kitchen and then through a door into the dining room (don't know if all that makes any difference....)

It would be impossible for me to judge without seeing the room, but Hsu has a 30 day no questions ask, return policy. You do have to pay for shipping it back though.

SVS subs are also well liked, but I don't care for their shape. You can see them here.

There's a difference in cabinet density, finish and I believe they upgraded the mid and tweeter. Not sure about the bass driver.
In my opinion the most noticable difference in sound is a top end "refinement" in the v3's. I think it makes it a worthy improvement over the v2's. The room they're in should play a part in determining what would be the best for you. An absorbtive or "dead" room might benefit from the forwardness of the v2's whereas a reflective or "lively" room might benefit from the v3's refinement and you can flip a coin for a neutral room. There's nothing "wrong" with either they're both exceptional for the money.

I've just gone from a Seismic 12 (which I'm going to sell by the way) to a DYI "Infinite Baffle" sub. For half the price of the Seismic or Servo I've now got the best bass I've ever heard. The diference is astounding, it affects the entire spectrum. If you've got an large enough area attached to your room that you can build an "IB" into you should seriously look into this option. I, for one, am overwhelmed by how good it sounds.
