You can definitely post those in the "classified" section in the Audio part.. someone will want them... I already have a pair since 2007... and love them .. mine are in mint....i think a mint pair of 7002's probably go for a bit more than a 1000.00 from what i have seen.. thats a very fair price IMO... i personally think they are worth maybe closer to 1500? Hope this helps......

Received my mythos 10 today, by its stats it's exactly like my sm65s only different shape. I'm very impressed with the size, quality and sheer weight of the speaker. Can't wait to test it with movies!

As much as I acknowledge the excess in my speaker layout I was watching a scene tonight that had some rainfall in it and the combination of the upper and lower layer of speakers gave it an almost 3 dimensional feel, even without having discrete channels (Auro / Atmos), I was happily surprised.

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

Mythos Music

Sorry for posting more than once, I'm new here and wasn't sure what the best place to put this would be. I have a 5.1 system with Mythos Ones in front, Mythos Three in the center and Gems in the rear. Super Cube II as a sub. Works great as a surround system for movies, but playing music sounds mediocre at best. I have been wondering about buying a new pair of speakers for the front (something with a powered sub built in?) to make pure stereo possible, and moving the Ones to the back with the Gems as 7.1 speakers. Any thoughts/recommendations?

Not quite, cubic volume is 876 vs 1998. Size really does matter. :-) Different drivers too. Not knocking the 10s, but they are not the 65s. I owned the 8s and wall mounted speakers are just not the same.

Yea you are correct the drivers in the CS line like the CS8080 are more like the SM65s. I really wanted a CS center but they will not fit in my wall unit. Or under my TV. I needed something only up to 6 inches deep and the Mythos fits perfect. I do notice a lot more details and sounds I didn't quiet pickup with a ghost center. I'm happy with my system but the mythos is the weakest speaker. Even so I'd buy it again.

Mythos STS system to BP8080ST system

I mainly watch TV, movies and play games. Not so much music. I have a Mythos STS system bundle (center 9 & gems). My room has cement floors and is pretty big and open. I ordered a SuperCube 8000 but haven't gotten it yet. I was in a Magnolia and heard the BP-8080ST system am was really blown away. I am looking for some opinions. Is it really better or is it just cause I was in a nice controlled environment?

Room does play a huge role in what you hear. They are also very different speakers. The BP-8080ST is obviously bi-polar vs the front-firing STS. The 8080's also use newer and larger BDSS mid-range drivers. The bass drivers and bass radiators are different (racetrack vs. round) and the 8080ST uses a more powerful amp for the bass drivers. All this would suggest that the 8080ST is a better speaker. However, the STS uses an extruded aluminum enclosure.

Basically, they are very different. I personally, I prefer front firing over bi-polar/di-polar speakers and went with mythos.

My room is very stark. Concrete floors, leather furniture, no drapes and very open floor plan. Would your gut tell you front firing or bi-polar would be recommended?

Sounds like you don't have much to control reflections. I noticed a huge different in my room with simple SM65s and the reflections once I put up some sound control. Bi Polar and concrete would not go very well in my opinion.

You're probably right. I'll wait and see how it sounds with the sub hooked up. Another question - I've always felt the sound with the mythos 9 center was somehow small and had to be turned up a little compared to the sts's for dialog. Would I be happier with a 10 as a center? What is the difference between 9 and 10 sound wise?

The mythos 9 and 10 are pretty similar. The 10 uses larger midrange drivers and slightly larger bass radiators. It's possible the mythos 9 will still be better for you because the midrange and tweeters both match the STS making the sound more consistent for your front 3 speakers. the thing is that the mythos 9 and 10 both have pretty heavy roll-off below 100 hz. The mythos 9 -3db is 96hz and the mythos 10 is around 75hz. I would start with a 100hz cross-over when your sub arrives and then tweak from there and see how it goes.

Question 1st post, thanks for taking the time....

I currently have 2 promonitor 800's, a prosub 800, and a procenter 1000 and am looking to upgrade to 5.1 and am considering a few options. The room is 19x12 with 10 foot ceilings but it opens into the kitchen/eating area. Options I am considering:

1)getting 2 additional promonitor 800's and upgrading to procenter 2000
2)getting 2 promonitor 1000 to use as fronts and use the 2 800's for rears.

I do not want to upgrade the sub as I live in a townhouse. Which of the above do you think would improve the overall sound the best. I mostly watch tv but some music as well, probably 80/20%. My other concern was how 2 promonitor 1000's would work with the procenter 1000. Generally these seem to be matched to the procenter 2000. I am open to any other suggestions keeping the cost under $700.

Any thoughts would be appreciated, and thank you again for looking.

PC2000 for sure.
Use the 800's for surrounds.
PM1000'S or any of the Studio Monitors (old or new) for your L/R.

Yep. PC2000 for center with PM1000's for L/R. 800's for surrounds.

Thanks guys, I bought the 2 PM 1000's and the PC 2000 from Amazon warehouse "like new" for $620....they deliver Friday....

Appreciate the info, do you think these will be ok with only the prosub 800? The townhouse thing(with people below me), makes it tough to crank up the sub, the normal speakers are ok louder as it is very well insulated.

When you move to a single home - then you can upgrade to a Rythmik, PSU, Outlaw, SVS, etc and get dual or quads and go crazy.

Yep, I had this exact setup until 2 weeks ago when I upgraded the entire speaker system. Worked surprisingly well in our 17x22 room. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised once you get everything into place and tweaked to your liking.
