Just got our Panasonic 65V10 mounted this weekend and had the new audio system setup and calibrated. Because our TV is in the Great Room and not a dedicated theater room we had to make "esthetic" choices in regards to the speaker system. We are really pleased with the sound quality given our high ceilings, windows and hardwood floors.
  1. Onkyo TXSR707
  2. Artison Masterpiece LCR-UMB Speakers attached to sides of TV
  3. Episode A6-LCRIW-4 In Wall Rear Speakers
  4. Boston Acoustics CPS-10Wi Wireless 10" Subwoofer

As for the 901s, they are powered by a separate amp by necessity due to the Bose equalizer and the need for a tape monitor hookup. I need to isolate that signal from regular speakers as regular ones sound like crap EQ'd by that. I used to further EQ them with a SAE parametric EQ back in the day but one of the channels failed in that unit.

BTW, these are fairly newer units as my original Series IV speakers had the foam rot out. Contacted Bose and they sent me new Series VI units for 1/2 price with return of old ones since I was the original owner. This on speakers over 20 years old, I was impressed. That is how much I liked those speakers. I have owned 901 speakers since 1981. I do not necessarily like all their products and particularly their surround setups. The 901s are my primary stereo listening speakers and I pimp them out for other uses in surround as well. They can really fill a room with sound.

12x12 room is not a problem. I have had them in smaller rooms over the years. A great stereo speaker for room filling sound. A tad pricey now for me and I would not have them without the support/deal I got from the company factory direct. Of course there is no need for them in a surround mode in a 12x12 room. There are far better options out there that are more cost effective.

I have a set of indestructible 901 Series Ones. They have the fabric surrounds that don't rot. I used to set them up outside on Halloween playing scary sounds. I live off the main road and people out there used to tell me how creepy it sounded. Those things can take a beating. During our honeymoon in New Orleans there was a fellow in one of the clubs that used Series Ones on top of a big bass bin. He was a one man band using a guitar and a bunch of programmed sound. The power coming out of those things was remarkable considering they are 35-40 years old. No wait.... been married for 20 years so they were more like 20 years old.

Sure they don't come close to matching todays higher end audio reproduction precision but they are fun.

For the past 15 yrs I have been listening to Infinity Kappa 6.1 Towers with RV center and RS bookshelf infinity speakers.

I replaced them this weekend with Klipsch speakers. I had been yearning for Klipsch Floorstanding speakers since I got a set oof Quintets back in like 2000.

Anyhow I purchased a set of RF-82 fronts, a RC-52 center, and a set of RS-42 rears. I had been running a Klipsch Sub-12 already.

They are better than I imagined. Awesome speakers. If youve been thinking about these, Dont. Just get em.

On a side note. Forever since I bought those Infinity Kappas I had a very annoying bass to my sound. Always thought I coulddnt get the sub right. Turns out theose infiinities had alot of bass but it was mussy bass .
Had I reallized it was the kappas I would have gotten a new set of speakers long ago.

Surround sides: SA-15R Ceilings
Surround backs: SA-15R-30 Ceilings
Sub: Velodyne SPL-1000 Series 1

I may replace the BP-8's with Paradigms or possibly B&W 805's that I currently own.

Panasonic 65" Plasma TH-65PZ850U
Pioneer Elite SC-05

Advice?



Pictures finally.

Had to downsize my speaker system due to unexpected space limitations, originally had a Yamaha HTR-6160 with JBL 5.1 CS480 speakers with 16-gauge wire, which was great, but...somehow, I figured that the A/V Receiver couldn't even fit into the shelf unit, so I downsized to a 2.1 system that I could hook directly into the television unit instead (no, not the Bose Cinemate system). I went and picked up a Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system, I know they are PC speakers, but as good as they sounded, I knew that those would work very well as television speakers, and come close to the same quality as a mid-range 5.1, supposedly. It's working out okay, that I know of.

Upgraded two of the subs up front. I installed these two TC Sounds drivers.

Here is a pic of the front stage as it is right now.

I have to adjust the picture just so that you can see anything since the room is all black. Sucks for pictures, but is graet for the black level of the image.

Since I just got my sub, I figured I could post up my basic setup from a recent college graduate:

TV: Samsung 32" LCD
Receiver: Harman Kardon AV 247
Media: Xbox 360 (FLAC stream), Sony BDP S350 (Blu Ray)
Front: Paradigm Titan v5 Monitor Bookshelf (grills removed)
Sub: eD A2-300



Next thing up is either a center channel or a TV upgrade.

Have you experimented with placement on the Titans or sub at all? I bet pulling the Titans out into the room and toeing them in a bit would be a considerable improvement, and if you put the sub in the corner, you'll pick up the rooms gain and thus be able to run the amplifier gain lower which means more headroom.

I'd love to and I understand my picture illustrates a weak acoustic setup, its just my small living room is just plain awkward to deal with.

The right speaker almost cuts into the doorway in the right of the picture, and the sub is to the left alot of open space from the entry and kitchen. I would love to put my setup on the opposite side of the room since it has a long even wall, but unfortunately there's no cable jack.

This might not look so pretty but I will argue that it could be one of the best sounding bedroom systems...

3 jtr quintuple 8's
1 jtr captivator (with 1 more on the way) - powered by an ep2500 and ep4000
2 x jbl 8340a's

111fd Kuro
AS-eq1
onkyo 805

I love every part of the setup. The captivator is a STAR on music and with the second one I think it will be all I could ever dream of for movies by having another woofer to move more air although I have not been able to get the passive to move ha. I have owned a vtf3, pb13 ultra and epik dynasty and this is the most musical so far. The quintuples are amazing speakers all around and the JBL's were the best bang for the buck /i have ever gotten

I need more acoustic treatment and maybe more amps power when I can afford it.

Grew up in ma. Being above average size might help but I have never run into a problem. Light hearted jostling but nothing that escalated (even when I wore an "I'd rather be at Fenway" shirt to Yankee stadium haha)
