One of my Supercube III's arrived today, looks so funny having this little 10" cube sitting where one of my 18" cube PF1500's used to be...works just fine though for what I'm doing with it, but the III's are definitely going to end up with the rears and going to at least II's for the side surrounds.
Didn't know how much I really missed using more than one Sub until I put this one back up front, whole nother animal again, walked outside and you could tell the walls were shaking...lol.

*Warning* None of my suggestions, ideas or even thoughts have any WAF, in any way!

Cools beans, do you already have a Atmos AVR? It will be a while before I upgrade to one so I'm curious how it works out with your system.

I am considering upgrading my current setup and was thinking of ceiling speakers and in wall speakers to get to ATMOS and possibly improve my current system. I would like recommendations based on my room configuration and limitations. Room is 209 square feet, 1672 cubic foot. Main viewing area is in the dual recliner and occasionally someone will sit on the couch. My wife can not tell the difference in upgraded speakers in an automobile so my upgrades are not Wife approved normally so i just install and ask forgiveness later. So far the only issue has been the larger sub.

I have a 7.2 setup currently but based on my room configuration i do not have the speakers at the ideal heights. I am considering going to an ATMOS setup in the near future. Current configuration:
I have a 65 inch flatscreen with the speakers on each side and underneath center using:
Promonitor 1000 Front left and Right
Procenter 2000 center speaker.

1 subwoofer is on floor below front left it is a BIC PL200
another sub (Prosub 600) is on floor behind dual recliner below rear surround right.

surround left and right are Promonitor 800's located on wall at junction of ceiling aimed at dual recliner
back surround left and right are just to left and right of dual recliner at junction of ceiling aimed at recliners.

I am thinking using DI 5.5S for surround back left and right just to the outside of the dual recliner
I was going to use the existing pro monitor 600 in current location for ATMOS height back
I was thinking of using DI 5.5R for ATMOS height Front

I have attached the drawing in pdf form of my room so if you have better recommendations i will be open to them. My wife is already unhappy with the sub size at the front left floor level. And i have slowly gone from Promonitor 600 system to what i have now slowly. She didn't notice the upgrade of the Procenter 600 to Procenter 2000. Got lucky.

I am open to other speakers that would match my fronts better but it would just be a step at a time so surround back in wall if recommended would be first to be purchased and installed. Based on my room limitations i am looking forward for your recommendations.

Long time lurker, first time poster. I have been out of the audio game for a long time, but we are building a house with a media room. The media room is 17.5 feet long by 13.5 wide. I want to upgrade my speakers from an old JBL HTIB system. I noticed Newegg has the Def Tech SM350s on sale for $159.99 a pair and the Def Tech BP8B on sale for $179.99 each. I was thinking about either of the following set ups.

SM 350s all around... front left, front center, surrounds and rears
or
BP8B for front right and front left and then the SM350s for surrounds and rears.

I would obviously buy a sub and center as budget and sales permit. I will not be able to use any of them for about 4 months as the slab is about to be poured.

I have an Onkyo TX-SR606 that I have been using as my receiver.
Specs for Onkyo receiver - onkyousa.com/Products/model.php?m=TX-SR606&class=Receiver

Which set up do you guys think would be best? Would the Onkyo 606 be powerful enough drive either of these set ups?

Thanks in advance.
