Something else to remember, the cs8060 uses 4.5" drivers, which can be a little harsher on vocals and spoken word than a 5.25" or 6.5" driver, so balance between the built in Woofer and placement (in the open, in a cabinet) will play a much larger part.

Don't worry about the "rules" as such, pick what settings you like the sound of best.

Oh... One thing besides actual placement is first reflection, depending on how high your Center is and what kind of floor you have will also make a big difference in the lower portion of the frequencies covered buy the 4.5" drivers and the tweeter, a carpeted flour our throw rug in front of the Center at the first reflection point will make a difference in the depth/tone of the sound -vs- ceramic tile or hard wood. This is one of the reasons it's suggested to have your Center out in the open or as far forward as possible if it's in a cabinet, even a couple of inches of wood around it will cause the speaker to sound more harsh and tinny.
It's on top of an entertainment center, ab 10 ft from the Vp and 5.5 ft in the air, angled down. Carpeted living room. Shouldn't the woofer pick up anything the 4.25 drivers can't handle?

You will almost always have better results setting your speakers to Small an crossing them at 80hz or 60hz. The woofer in the center speaker is there to enhance mid range frequencies.

I would never recommend engaging the LFE+Mains setting. This often times will cause bass cancellation issues.
I have. Ran it again this am. Left the center at 12. Audyssey calibrated to small w a 60hz xo. No sub currently so no lfe+main to speak of . haven't had a chance to play w it yet but hoping that helps.

Well, it looks like I am probably going to go with the Studio Monitor 55s for my fronts which would replace my Pro Monitor 1000s. Anyone else using the 55s for the fronts? Impressions? I looked at them at Best Buy/Magnolia tonight and really solid and heavy....impressive looking speaker just in those terms - didn't get to listen to them.

I listened to the 55s when I bought my 65s. They are really close to each other, just slightly more mid level clarity in the 65s, but most people would never know. They will be a great upgrade for you.

Yes it will to a certain point, this is one of the instances that placement will come into play, but more than that, adjustments. (See Below)

Don't just trust Audyssey to do everything, it's great, but adjusting to your taste is also important.
I'm taking for granted that your Sub setting on your receiver is set to No/Off and that you haven't just left it on and not hooked one up, so from there you should try some different manual adjustments.
Try setting the Center to Large, just to see what the difference is, if this seems better then go back to Small and experiment with dropping the crossover level until you find something that helps, you never know, even Large may work for you. (The audio police won't come and get you if it does....lol) also don't be static with the level adjustment on the Center itself, play with it too
Not having a Sub will definitely take you out of the world of what is considered to be "normal" settings.

Should listen to them. I came from the PM 1000's as well . Love my SM65's. They are much more full sounding (after a couple weeks break in) with more fidelity. The PM1000's are pretty good but also a pretty bright sounding speaker. I demo'd the 45's and 55's before my purchase and matched them to a ProCenter 2000 since that is the only thing that would fit in my entertainment center.

I probably would have just gone with the 65s, but they are 3.5" taller which means the top would probably be visible at the bottom of my projection screen frame and might be a little distracting (or it might not). They also are a few inches deeper. The 55s will actually be a bit lower than my 1000s which is even better and given the 55 is not as deep as the 65, I think it will overall just fit better under my screen.


It also appears the tweeter is up a little higher on the 55 vs the 65 which might help me given these will be floor mounted with a 15 degree tilt.

I get the sense the 65s are only slightly better than the 55s anyway - or is this debatable? I will be using these strictly for movies.

I agree the 1000s are a pretty bright speaker. Overall, they are good, but I think used as my surrounds I will like them even better and will be able to get a real boost in the front stage with the Studio Monitors.

In my room, the 55s actually measured a flatter frequency response (via REW at my MLP) than the 65s and I would use either as mains as long as you have a good sub to blend.

Edit: I am using the 65s as my mains and the 55s as surrounds, but had I known how well the 55s measured I might have saved a few bucks and gotten them for all 4.

Good to hear. My video/audio calibrator is Chad B who will do the Audyssey pro cal and REW. I'll just run the regular auto cal until he can do it.

My sub is the Hsu 15" VTF. It does a great job now especially given my room is not huge and its closed.

Speakers and mounts should be in this week!

I ended up going with these: http://audioengineusa.com/Store/DS2-Desktop-Stand-Pair as I wanted as much tilt as I could (they give 15 degree) since these will be on the floor tilted to my seating position (couch).

I might use a little of that sticky tack to help keep the speaker in place on the bottom (if needed).

Hi everyone. Yesterday I posted about a possible craigslist find on a Klipsch rf 7 deal but the seller is unresponsive.

Today, my local craigslist has the following for $450.

Definitive Technology BP-2004 towers (he also has bp 30 towers if that is better)
Definitive Technology ProCenter c2 center channel
Definitive Technology BP-2x rears

My questions:

1 - would this be a noticeable upgrade over my current Sony Core bookshelves and center (with cheap satellite).

2- is this a good price for the Def Techs where I would not need to upgrade speakers for a few years

3 - I had planned on saving up for the Emptek bookshelves and center... how would this compare?

I would appreciate input as if the consciousness is yes, good deal - i'd like to go listen to them tonight. For what its worth, the room is 18x15 dedicated HT used for movies and tv. This will be paired with a rythmik lv12r.

If you can get the BP30's for that price with the center and rear, that would be an outstanding deal and yes, it would be an upgrade from your current set up. I have not heard the center, and it would probably be overpowered by the 30's, but, you could easily sell it and look for a used CLR1000b. The 1000b would match the 30's and they can be found on eBay for less than $100. You need to understand that the 30's alone are worth more than $450 if they are in good condition. The rears would be fine. The 2004's would be good too, but the 30's would be great IMO.

Thanks. I also have the option to buy the Klipsch rf 7 towers and RC7 center for $800. I know this would be a better buy, but its also more than I want to spend... trying to see if the Def Techs would come close in quality...

What's your definition of quality. Do you like the sound of Klipsch? Personally I don't like the horn tweeters, or at least I didn't about 15 years ago when I started buying Def Techs. My biggest lesson learned is get a great front sound stage, but don't worry about how much they will carry. Invest in good subs My sound has improved so much from having great subs.

Thanks. Iv actually never heard Klipsch, especially the rf7. Iv also never heard the Def Techs. But from my threads (trying to get lots of feedback since im running out of time) are saying go for the Klips. I know they are a good price, but also 2x the def techs.

As far as sub goes, Im having my rythmik lv12r delivered tomorrow. Room is 18x15 with acoustic panels on walls. Dedicated HT so no openings to other rooms.

No, I am not saying go for the Klipsch, I am saying everybody is different. I didn't like their horn tweeters when I listened to them, but each is different. The Rythmic is a good start. :-)

I answered in your thread, but I have to say I'm with Lowell on the tweeters, I'm just haven't been a fan of the sound of them, but honestly, it's what you like the sound of.

I will listen on Friday, but I do like the idea of saving 400 bucks .

So the bp30s even though are old, are nice speakers? I had considered getting the emptek bookshelf speakers and center to pair with the new sub before I saw the craigslist post.

BP30s are great speakers. They have 2, 6.5" woofers in front and back. Just like with Klipsch tweeters, you need to see if you like bi polar towers. I have the old 2006s in one room and Studio Monitors in my dedicated HT. Both sound good. Bi polars give a full front sound stage, but some have difficulty getting them set up correctly.

So the bp30s even though are old, are nice speakers? I had considered getting the emptek bookshelf speakers and center to pair with the new sub before I saw the craigslist post.
BP30s are great speakers. They have 2, 6.5" woofers in front and back. Just like with Klipsch tweeters, you need to see if you like bi polar towers. I have the old 2006s in one room and Studio Monitors in my dedicated HT. Both sound good. Bi polars give a full front sound stage, but some have difficulty getting them set up correctly.
Awesome thanks. The seller also has the Bp 2004 towers but it sounds like the Bp 30s are better, especially with a quality subwoofer
