If you wanted a timbre match you could set up some SM65s back there on stands. Are another set of ST-L towers an option?


Are you going to do surrounds AND rear surrounds?
I'm not sure another set of ST-L would sit very well with my fiancee LOL. Yes I plan on doing surrounds and rear surrounds. I have been thinking about getting 2 BP9020 and 2 SR9080. Not sure if those would complement the fronts well though

From the looks of your layout you may have outlets near where your rear speakers would be. Timbre matched, powered loud speakers for rears are a real kick in the pants.


The guy I bought my 2006's from was running a 5.0 set up with 4 2006's. He let me test drive them prior to buying and it was a very enjoyable experience.


I definitely wouldn't skimp on your rear channels if youre running ST-Ls up front. Just my 2 cents.

Well I have a Procenter2000 on its way from Bajawaverunner, can't wait test drive it. Hoping it lives up to everyone's comments. Although just looking at the specs compared to my current Procenter1000 it should be an improvement (fingers crossed)

I was looking at making the same change and ended up with a CLR2002 instead of a PC2000. For me it was a massive improvement and no reason to think you won't experience the same. The PC1000 is fine but I always felt like it was a bit congested and boxy, particularly with male voices, and switching it out took care of that.

I hope you are right. I originally went with the C9060HD but it did not pass the WAF and to be honest it truly didn't fit my space. The PC2000 will fit like a glove and should tide me over until we get my last little sponge out of college and then I can go really crazy ( 9 BP 8080ST for the bed layer sounds like it should do nicely.... )

Hey guys, was just curious, if I go ahead with the UIW RLS II for LCR. Would I be better off using the RSS II or the RCS II as my surrounds, since they will be installed in the rear wall at either end of the couch? Since I don't have side walls not sure if it would be helpful to "aim in" the RCS from the couch edge rather than have the RSS pointed straight.

I attached a pic to illustrate. Def tech's are marked as blue dots. The Red dots would be for the RSL C34E's I'm planning to use for a future 5.1.2 atmos set up. Thanks for any help!

Hello all,

Sorry if this question has been asked, but the search function is not helping me to search for this question.

I'm strongly considering getting a 7 speaker set of the 9000 series lineup.
Specifically I'm looking at two BP-9040's for Front L and R with the A90 atmos modules. The CS-9040 for center, and two SR-9040's for side surrounds.

My primary question is in regards to matching a receiver to this set up. But I'd also really appreciate any thoughts, suggestions or feedback.

For my receiver, I'm looking at the Denon AVR-X4300H IN-Command because it supports 9.2 channels with HDCP2.2, HDMI 2.0a and Atmos, and I like its bluetooth and spotify features. The main reason why I was looking at this particular receiver, beyond being a fan of and used to Denon products, is because it supports a 5.2.2 setup, whereas other atmos enabled 7.2 channel receivers that I've seen do not allow 5.2.2.

BUT - now that I've done some more reading, it appears that if I were to use the integrated subs in these speakers (BP-9040), and set the speakers to Large with no LFE connected, then I would be running 5.0.2 and would not need to spend another $500+ on an extra 2 channels I do not plan to use. Is this assumption correct, does anyone else run a set-up like the one I'm looking at?


For some background if interested:
I'm moving to a new home and have a preferable max $4,500 budget, before the wife kills me (keeping it towards 3,500 is preferable). I'm coming from a 5.1 setup with some old Infinity speakers with ribbon tweeters that I've repaired and refoamed. Front L&R are Reference Five series, side LR are similar era bookshelves (no ribbon tweeter), center is an Infinity PC351, sub is some random front firing hand-me down. Been happy with these speakers as a hand me down from my father for a long time, but they are bulky and will look ugly in our new home. I know I can do better now and want atmos.
