Hsu Vtf subwoofer
2 Veritas 6.2 floor speakers
1 veritas 5.2center channel
2 veritas 5.1 front presence

2 veritas minis rear presence

I've really enjoyed this setup it literally shakes my house great detail, and clarity for the speakers!! The yamaha Receiver really matches the energy speakers very well. Subwoofer is amazing!

I second the Panasonic plasma and also a Samsung plasma. Samsung LEDs are just as overpriced as Sony. A properly calibrated Sharp LED offers good bang for the buck, can't compete with plasma PQ wise.

Hi all,

i am new to this forum but i have been reading a lot in this forums for the last few days to find out if i can use speakers that i had in my car. These are a pair of component speakers from VIBE ( Black air 6, all the components are present with it. i was looking forward to see if any body can guide me. I was looking forward in using them as my surround speaker with the Yamaha 3064.

Also, the specs are available but i am not able to get few parameters that would help me in designing the speaker box for my surround.

Please assist.

Thanks,
Hemant.

Consumer Reports rates the Samsung PN60E550 at the very top in every performance category, and it lists for only $1300.

Personally I LOVE my MItsubishi DLP 60-inch, but they only make the 73-inch and 82-inch models now. Excellent performance in every way (Amazon has the 73-inch model).

Short answer, need to measure the drivers response in a box to design a xover that will work in a box.

Also, take this to the DIY forum, not the post your speakers sticky wink.gif

Updates are going into my signature. Cliff notes:

Denon AVR-2113CI is replacing my Onkyo TX-8050 for two channel duty. I need better subwoofer integration/bass management and 2 channel receivers aren't cutting it. The Denon has two other priorities - networked with Spotify app and preamp outputs for different zones.

Kef Q300 are going up for sale, being replaced by Ascend CMT-340 SE. The Kef are great speakers, but are lost in my huge living room. I'm hoping, based on feedback, that the CMT-340 will be a better fit.

Oh yeah, I installed an ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card between my computer and 2-channel receiver. I have no idea whether it's made a difference or not, but I suspect I will benefit from cleaner sound, and guessing that the DAC is slightly better than what's in the Onkyo. I probably just wasted my money. biggrin.gif

The best place to ask this question would be in "Receivers, Amps, and Processors". IMOP I would start looking at the Marantz nr1403 or nr1603 for good quality & low price.

Other tv locations are either klipch or speaker craft in wall from a dedicated Sony es amp

Whole house audio is still a work in progress...but speakers are speaker craft crs8 or aim8/dt's

And some evid outside too...

Actually, I am getting excited for the new Triax's!! I cannot wait to see what they have got!

The 228 is actually very small compared to the 212's, but this picture really makes everything look small. This section in allot bigger in person.

I really need to find a new entertainment center that can hold all this stuff along with a 60" TV mount. This is really the only place in the room I can put this stuff,
so I cannot mount the TV on the wall considering the corner. The entertainment center here has been modified to hold all this stuff and it looks kind of stupid. I am hoping to get my
theater build in action by the fall so I can get all this stuff out of this room to where it can be opened up as they say biggrin.gif Then I can start working on my 2ch system.

How do you like your Verus Grand Tower's for HT?

They were in my top 5 when I was hunting for my previous speakers. I think there was a one or two month wait for the Verus, I think because they were new at that time. I did not want to wait and went with the Monitor Audio RX8's. Loved the RX8's, but I like my Noesis better smile.gif

My room is 25 x 25 and I used one side for the HT. Not the best but it ended up pretty darn awesome. I used all Paradigm ceilings.

Paradigm SA-15R for front surrounds and SA-15R-30's for the rear surrounds. The SA-15R is down firing and the -30's are angle fired at 30 degrees.

Nice set-up
I see my cats are not the only ones to like to sit on top of the PB13.
Mine never bother the speakers other than siting on top.

Wow! what a beautiful cat you got.
Is it a Bangle?
