I need to raise it for the new center speaker to sit below the tv and on the media center. I'm hoping to place each of the towers on each side of the media cabinet, and as far forward as practical. Since they're 16" deep and the front of my cabinet is 26" from the wall, I'm hoping 10" to the back wall will work well enough for the bipolar elements. The media cabinet is 25" high and my CS9060 will sit centered on it. The cabinet is 6'-8" long- so that means my towers will end up being placed about 7' apart...not much, but I think it will work out for me.

Still not sure what to do about the surrounds and rear heights....money's not there to do it all at once anyway.
I am doing the same thing as you! I just had my Sony mounted last Friday and also raised it 8 inches higher to accomodate the CS9080 center channel. Having owned bipolar speakers in the past I know that the further out they are placed the better the soundstage imaging.

That's the thing with bipolar speakers, if you have the right space, the right room for them and place them right there is no better soundstage around. It's quite incredible, the parameters have to be right though and that's tough for a lot of people. Awesome if you do though.

I have no more WAF to deal with so I am okay with placement wherever needed.

I have a wife, I just don't care when it comes to the home theater. She can do what she wants with every other room, but I do what I want when it comes to the home theater. I don't have bipolar speakers and I don't miss them. I have an all Def Tech non-bipolar system, other than the sub which is SVS.

I'd like to try going without a sub and using the BP9060's 10" subs as a separate LFE input. But, that doesn't seem to be the "preferred" method according to the manual.

Does anyone forgo the use of a separate sub and only use the two towers?

(Haven't yet received any kind of email from DT as regards my order placed yesterday. Hopefully I will get some kind of receipt tomorrow and some idea of shipping/arrival dates.)

I did just that for years and it was ok but nothing like having a real sub. I wish it would have been but it's not enough. Then I was dumb enough to buy a DT sub which is overpriced for the performance. Years down the road I smartened up and have an SVS PB-1000 and this how a sub should sound and perform.

I have a pair of BP-8060's and have been using the LFE RCA cable on them for the past 15 months. I'm considering getting a SVS PB2000 if not 2 of them. Still looking at HSU or Rythmik but leaning more towards the SVS. I know one will fit in front where my mains are, I don't know if I can squeeze a second upfront due to the placement/area restriction that I have now.

Just biding my time till I round up enough cash to buy one (or two).

Question for all those in the "know", I currently utilize a DT Supercube 2000 as my one and only sub (the rest of my system is noted in my signature as well). I would really like to add an additional sub to lessen the load and to smooth the response in my room. My room is approximately 16'W x 22'L x 8'H and is partially open (8' open doorway) to another room. I know for the most part the def tech subs are considered over priced for their performance yet If I had the opportunity to add a 2nd def tech SC2000 for a pretty reasonable price (say around $300) do you all think that this would be a sensible route to take? Also not sure if this is the best place to post this question yet I haven't been steered wrong by you all yet . Thanks ahead of time for your opinions and experiences.

Great words from Nigel Tufnel.

Personally I think you'd be better off with one SVS PB-1000 and forgetting about the SC 2000. That's just my opinion. You could try a second SC 2000 and see.

If you can get a used SC2000 for $200-$250 then your dollar -per- performance ratio will be in line, but....
The real question is "how big is your space" this will tell you if it's even worth doubling up on such small subs.

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

adding a second identical sub will smooth out the bass response in the room and seating positions but make no difference in frequency range.

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.
