I'm actually thinking that the 7002's are pretty drastically better then the 7006's, i'm going to do more listening sessions, but if they really do just keep me there then i'll just wait on the sub, i really don't think i'll have the money, but hey, i'm doing this through a Best Buy credit card with monthly payments, so I guess it's just how much it will add to that bill. Or I'll just get the sub and be spioled and owe them a rediculous amount of money

Thanks for you time!


Speakers definitely set to Large or you are losing the benefits of the Supercube being in there. Once set to Large, that overrides your processor's crossover (for any speakers set to Large). As to LFE, its trial and error. I prefer the overall sound not running the LFE to my 7000s but just to my dedicated sub. But others will run to all three or four (2 in the towers and 1 or 2 dedicated subs) with awesome results. It also depends on your processor's # of sub outputs and how many Y-connectors you want to run to split the signal.

Hi All,
Just ordered deftech system and was stopping in to say hi. ordered pair 7004s, 2500 center, and bpvx/p.

I guess I'm second guessing myself, After alot of reading I am thinking of the 7002 fronts over the 7004's. The 7002's larger and more midranges better match for the rears. Or the 7004's better match for the room size ( 16 X 16). the speakers should be here in a week. I would really like to here some opinions. Decisions! Isn"t this a great hobby.

I would like to hear opinions from you guys with experience with the BPXV/P's for surrounds. I am currently running the following Def Tech 5.1 configuration; BP2000TL front, CLR 3000 center, BPVX side surrounds. Temporarily the system is powered by a Pioneer 1014 that will be upgraded to (?) within the next few months. I have had these speakers for a few years and really like the DT's for both movies and music. My room is very large volume wise and these speakers do a great job of filling it up with sound. The Pio 1014 is a nice unit but I bought it just as an interim step. I will upgrade the DVD player next month and then I will start looking seriously for a receiver upgrade.

I am currently in the process of installing permanent wiring for the system and placement of the side surrounds. I am going to include wiring for the 7.1 surround rears although I don't have any speakers at this time. My question is whether the BPVX/P is enough of an upgrade over the BPXV that I should consider them for my next purchase. If I go that route I will put the /P's on the sides and use the BPXV's for rears.

Unfortunately the rears will have to be mounted quite high, about 5 feet above the seated listening position and only about 3 feet behind. The rears can either be hung flat against the wall or angled downward with a bracket. There is no power outlets available where the rears will hang so for sure they will be the BPXV's when the 7.1 layout is completed. Would you recommend /P's for the sides or just stick with the standard version and get another set for the rears?

I don't know how much of an upgrade it would be because I am using BPVX's for surround speakers but I suspect its a really nice upgrade. I sure wish I would have went for BPVX/P's now. With that being said you would place the BPVX/P's in the surround position and the BPVX in the back surround or Dolby EX/DTS-ES position. That would sound absolutely incredible. Also when you go to upgrade the receiver I would go with separates if you have the money. I have Parasound separates and will never look back. Its the best way to get the most of your speakers. J.H.

Can I get some feedback from ppl w/ Mythos ONEs. Do you have them set to LARGE or SMALL???

I have the ELITE 74 so I am able to PUSH the sub even if they are set to large.

I'm going to chime in about the Def techs. I recently made a change from all KEF
speakers to deftechs. I got a killer deal from my brother in-law that just got remarried and moved into a small house. He had to unload most of them but kept
his bp3000 towers. Here what I bought. 3- CLR2000, 2- BPVX, 2-BP-2006TL all for a grand! While I loved my KEFs they just dont have the dynamics for movie soundtracks. And whats nice is I can run all 3 CLR2000's for movies and then switch out the 2 left and right for the 2006's for music and multichannel music. I find that I much prefer the 2006's for music.

Ive been enjoying the new setup so much that I felt compelled to comment here.
P.S. - Gotta give a nod to my wife for putting up with 2 sets of left and right speakers at the front of the family room.

Gators2001,

I would set the Mythos ones to small, then listen to a 20Hz to 200Hz sweep, and if you are set to small and cut em off at 60Hz and hear a dip in the voume try setting them to 80Hz.

20Hz to 200Hz sweep can be found on the THX Optomizer discs (Star Wars I, II, III, or T2 Dual Disc Set)

What i was wondering is how the subwoofers in the 7002's work alongside the standalone sub. I'm gonna be using the subwoofers in the Front and Center speakers along with the SuperCube II, so how does all that sub stuff get dispersed? I mean there is obviously the channel off for the sub, but how do you wire or set the 02's to get that sub channel as well? lol i'm pretty clueless on this. I'll be pairing it with a Yamaha 5990, and have no idea about these settings or issuses, any info could help

Thats the setup I have 7002's mains and SCII and it sounds great. The low end bass fills the entire room. It covers the entire room with low end. I like having the room filled with bass. J.H.

I have 2002tl's which is an older version of the 7002. I have a c/l/r 2300 and an svs 25-31 pci sub. I have z series monster wire to the mains, no lfe. I have my yamaha receiver set to large for the mains, volume for the built in subs at 12 o'clock. I have the clr 2300 set up the same. lfe is going to the svs, xover @ 60hz. That is the best set up that I found......

No current pics, but my setup is as follows:

3x CLR2002 (FL, C, FR)
2x BP2x (SL & SR)
2x BP1.2x (SBL & SBR)
2x HSU TN1220HO subs
Powered by a Sunfire Cinema Grand (front 3 and both HSU TN1220HO subs), Pioneer Elite VSX-45tx for the surrounds. I also use a Pioneer Elite DV-45A to feed it DVD-A and SACD...

I've got a pair of SM350's in the shop getting new crossovers. Apparently the SM350's don't like playing NIN at reference level when fed with my Sunfire amp... I like using 3 CLR2002's instead of the SM350's and a single CLR2002 as far as sound goes. The CLR2002 is not nearly appreciated as much as it should be, IMHO.

I have been using my BP10's as surround speakers, which is kind of like shooting a butterfly with an elephant gun. Meanwhile, I have been using my Athena F1's in my stereo system (separate room.) I have decided to switch them. Hopefully, the F1's will be sufficient for surround while the BP10's should sound awesome for music.

I'm pretty possotive that I have decided on get a pair of 7002's, a C/L/R 2300, and BPX surrounds, paired with a Yamaha 5990 reciever, however i do know it is overkill for my room, but i am wondering how the sound acustics or sound in general will sound in my room. My room is only 12X11 so i know there is alot more sound then is needed, but basically all that is in my room is my bed and my 51inch Toshiba, and my computer, but there is definatly direct places for them,but will it actually sound worse due to the size of the room or should I be fine with that setup. After hearing the 7002's in comparison to the others, it would suck to have to go down to the 06's due to room size

any opinions would be apreciated.

also would a Supercube II be a good decision on a sub, especially if i'm pressed for space?

ISupermanI for the size room I think that 7002s + 2300 would be more than ample, if HAD to go 7006s Supercube II is suggested to add more power to the sub 30Hz. But with 7002s ina 12x12 room thats more then enough and maybe add a Buttkicker.

My setup consists of the following:

BP10B - mains
CLR2000 - center
BP-2X - surrounds
PM100 - rear surrounds (just added to complete the 7.1 setup)

Only my sub is not a DT which is an OK 10-in Velodyne CT100.

It turns out that the BP8's sound better in my room (18' x 20'). There is such a thing as too much bass, after all.

I am trying to find the right steup for a room which has vaulted ceiling and is attached to a large dining room.

I am considering this setup below

Definitive Technology Mythos Five FloorStanding Tower Speakers (can't afford the Fours)

Definitive Technology Mythos Three Center Speaker

Definitive Technology Mythos Gem


The system will be run on a Denon 3805 receiver. the listening area is about 15 feet. the listening area is about 10 feet from the tv and mains

I think that setup would sound great but you need a sub as the mythos line does not have built in subs. You need low end bass from a dedicated sub. If you can't get a definitive sub I would look at SVS subs HSU subs. Cheap and good bang for the buck. Hope that helps. J.H.
