Baja has the 2002 as well. I'd buy from them just for the cust service and warranty/return policy.

Def Tech BP7001Sc Towers. Def Tech Mythos 10 center . 2 Velodyne Subs HGS 10. and 8 Mirage Omni Pole Nano stat surrounds for my 11.2 set up . I had run source technologies for my surrounds but wanted to save space and these sound great in that set up

I am currently using the PC2000 with BP8b mains and PM1000 surrounds and rears.

IMO the match is near optimum. The PC2000 uses the same size and similarly-voiced drivers as the BP8b, and is an amazingly robust speaker that plays loud and goes plenty low to work very well with an 80Hz crossover.

I wouldn't consider a PC1000, however, unless the system was not going to be pushed very hard.

Watch e-bay for one of these:
PC-2000
C/L/R 2000
C/L/R 2002
C/L/R 2300 (powered sub)
C-1
C-2

Any of these can be had at times for a pretty good price, shame I didn't catch your post earlier, I just sold a PC-2000, any of the above should be a good match.

Should I change up my surround speakers?

I currently have a 5.1 system consisting of 3 SM 65's across the front and SM 45's as rears. I like the 45's as rears just fine but I like the idea of wall mounting the surrounds the the 8040bp or 8080bp would be much easier to do so. As far as voice matching the 65s do I have anything to worry with either the 8080bp or 8040bp?

I have 8080s with my 65s and they are just fine. Def Tech will tell you they will both match.

Soft dome tweeters are the old, non-B versions. The newer B-versions have the metal tweeter.

Hello all,

Just starting to think of the next phase of my HT. I just moved and will likely be knocking out a wall in the living room, so I'm not even to the point of actual measurements or dimensions yet...regardless...

I currently have a 3.2 setup:

SM45 (L/R)
SM65 (C)
Dayton 1200 SW (x2)

all powered by a Denon AVRX1000

It was a starter setup last winter and I'm very happy with it vs my old HT system which consisted of a sammy soundbar/SW lol. However, I really do want a lot more visceral experience here. I want a lot louder and more detail/depth. well, as much as i can get within budget and a 5.1.

I'll likely be moving the 45's to the rear. I'm trying to decide if I want to get a new L/R (floor speakers now that i have the room) and keep the 65 as the center, or if I should just get another 65 and use those as L/R and buy a new center...

I imagine I'm going to run out of AVR with the X1000 at some point...but honestly i have no idea when that will be.

If we are talking new L/R i'd like to stay in the 1500 range for the pair.

Regardless, I'll be reading a ton over the next few months and trying to better define what I need/want. This setup is pretty much 60 TV/Movie, 35 Game, 5% Music...

Thanks for reading!
