@pmeintel ~ Thanks for the response.

Was just wondering since I already had BP 90's in place, would these be able to use those, or will I have to remove and replace.

Thanks again!

Sony STRDN1030 AVR


I recently put together this system, upgrading from my old school Bose Acoustimass 10 setup (I know it sucked compared to this. For some reason, it seems that the Procenter 1000 cant keep up with the rest of the speakers. It sounds low compared to the rest. I played with the adjustments for the Center on the AVR and it still is low. Would the CS-8040HD be worth buying to replace this? Is it any better?? Thanks in advance.
double check the center placement,and wiring connections, if it isn't pointed directly at the listener ear height it can sound off
you have 16 or 14 gauge wire, 18 gauge or thinner is not recommended
no stray wire strands touching each other

your center should have no issues keeping up

what are you testing with?

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.
Marantz SR-5010
Def Tech ST-8060 towers, CS-8040 center, SR-8040 surrounds, Pro Monitor 1000 heights
SVS PB-2000
65" LG UG8700
Harmony 1000

im running 12AWG Sewell 259 Strand 6 ft. cables with banana plugs for the L/C/R


14 AWG wire for the rear 4 promonitor 800s


I just used the standard Sony AutoCal to set up the speakers. Maybe I need to fine tune them.

Well finally pulled the trigger and should be receiving a CS9060 sometime next weekend (A pair of SM65's arrive tomorrow ) . My initial intent is to try the CS9060 set to small with the cross over set to 80. Also will try the CS9060 set to large and see how this sounds. Just thought I ask everyone eases thoughts and or imprecations and perhaps what has worked well for them. I understand that every ones ear's are different yet I'm under the mind set of there is no such thing as to much data.

P.S. If I don't reply it's because the purchase of the center speaker has pushed my wife over the edge......

"These go to eleven."
Great words from Nigel Tufnel.

Gear:
Sony KDL55, LG BD570, Pioneer SC-95, FL/FR - DefTech SM65, C- DefTech PC1000,
FLH/FRH - DefTech PM1000, SL/SR - DefTech SR8040BP, Sub - DefTech Supercube 2000

I have no problem with my Procenter 1000, but just for kicks bought a new CS-8040HD to see if it would improve anything for my 5.1 system and it did not. No difference between the PC1000 and CS-8040HD. Both have the same drivers in them. Personally i think they make the CS-8040 to match the towers and the PC1000 to match the pro cinema series speakers. You might want to get it just so it matches your BP8040 towers.

Living room; Samsung PN60F5300B Plasma TV, Marantz SR5008 AVR, Sony UHP-H1 UHD Blu-ray, Definitive Mytho 2's fronts-wall mounted, Definitive Pro Center 1000 speaker, Definitive Di 5.5R in ceiling for surrounds, RSL speedwoofer 10s , Comcast Xfinity HD DVR box.

Garage; Sherwood RX-4105 2 channel stereo receiver, Samsung DVD-C500 CD player, Klipsch KG 2.5 med Oak speakers

I've read this a few different times. Interesting. Wonder why that is.

I don't remember, you can't do height speakers instead of modules?
Do you think you perfer the 450s over the sm55s or sm65s?

At the current moment they are serving front height duty, as I went with PSA Mt-110's for my l,c,r.
They are great speakers though, no doubt about that.


If PSA comes out with a smaller surround type speaker I will be selling the Sm55's, Pm1000's and Pm800's that I have in my mix.

65's first, and 55's & 450's pretty even, I personally just have a soft spot for the vintage cube shape....
Plus they have a keyhole mount for hanging.

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