Why not the Elac C5 for center duty? You're kind of pot committed at this point.

Keeping the front l/r/c as similar as possible (timbre matching) definitely pays dividends if you're looking for a uniform soundfield from your front stage.

I've posted my gear upgrades over the year here but lost my account because the password recovery thing for this site is broken and has never worked for me...and so am forced to log in with facebook now.

Here is my system in it's final ( for now ) form.

New ( first house I bought ) theatre room, my monitor audio, rotel gear I had previously but with an added second 15 inch sealed monitor audio gold sub, a new yamaha RX-V3081 ( A3060 equivalent ), sony X93D 55" and samsung 8500 UHD player ( I want to frisbee it into traffic ).

My plans for the next phase is to get monitor audio platinum in roof speakers that come out in september, they have the platinum tweeter which is very similar to the gold but not exactly, I was told that the FX speakers for the gold series cannot be roof mounted and there is no gold series in roof speaker with the ribbon tweeter.

After that it will be a new receiver, tv and player when hdmi 2.1 has been released. PC gaming is a big factor and bandwidth for RGB 444 10/12 bit at 60hz or above is not possible currently. I hope tvs in a few years have a legit 120hz refresh rate, but I won't hold my breath.

Anyway here are some pics and a link to a vid just over a minute long to show you my room.

My names Blake and I've got two Klipsch RF-82 II's, Klipsch RC-64 II, and Klipsch R-115SW. I'm thinking about getting two more 82's or a couple bookshelf/surrounds to finish it off!

Welcome Blake. You might look into Fry's. They had RF82lls for around $280 each last week.
Nice system you have there.

Nice


Your pictures do not show up
But the video are nice to see.


I prefer the look of the speakers, without the grill, they look so sexy
Any reasons of having the grills on, other than young children or pets?

I've made a few upgrades since I last posted here.







Main l/r: SVS Ultra Tower Speakers
Center channel: SVS Ultra Bookshelf Speaker
Surround speakers: (2) SVS Ultra Bookshelf Speakers
Subwoofage: (2) Hsu VTF -3 MK5 HP 15" subwoofers
Receiver/prepro: Marantz SR6011
Amplifier: Monolith 7, 7 x 200wpc
Monitor: Vizio D58u-D3 58" UHD LED
Sources: Xbox One-S, DTV and a retired laptop for HTPC

That took me a couple of years to put together. I upgraded in stages (Not recommended. If you're gonna go, go big right off the bat with some good homework first) and was lucky enough to buy my gear cheap enough to not sell at a loss. I even made a few bucks here and there. I think my weak link is my monitor now. I went into this adventure with audio first in mind. I'm really happy with what I ended up with. SVS' Ultra speakers are legit. I just couldn't afford 2 PB16's or I'd have those too!

*Edit: I attached files too, since I don't see the images in my post... I used Image Shack?

Looking good!! With all that bass, and all those upgrades, I'd highly recommend a bit of attention on your listening room. Maybe some corner bass traps and some absorption and/or diffusion at the first reflection points on your walls.

A little bit of money and effort spent treating your room can really maximize the sound of all the nice equipment you have in there. Room treatments can really be the cherry on top of a great system.

GIK acoustics treatments have done wonders for 2 of my systems, but there are lots of reputable companies out there, or you can go the DIY route for much less expensive if you're handy.

As far as room treatments, I'm handy enough to diy it, but honestly I don't really see a need to. This is my bass response right now without.



To me, there's not a whole lot of room for improvement, so I'm leaving well enough alone, lol. I put a lot of time and effort into getting them positioned to where they sound best in the space I have. Somehow or another my big, odd shaped space seems pretty friendly with a pair of good subs. It helps that I'm carpeted throughout and have some nice soft furniture in the room.

Right now I think I've reached a stage few audiophiles ever do. I'm happy with what I have. I don't think I want to dive into the next rabbit hole!

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.

If it were me I would move that REL sub to the back corner of your room and corner load that other woofer of yours.

Lol. Dual (sub)woofers, eh? I thought about it. Problem is, while I know the REL is fast enough to keep up with my speakers, I just don't have the same level of confidence in the other one..
