I don't have pics but my system is 7002's for mains which just replaced 2004's. I have BPVX's for surrounds,CLR2500 for center,BPX's for surrpund back channels and a SupercubeII. Its all powered by Parasound amps and controlled by a Parasound processor. Overall a pretty good system from just building myself with no help. I likes what i hear and bought all the equipment in my system. I hope more people respond I know lots more have DTs around here. J.H.

I don't have pics either, but I have BP2006TLs with a CLR 2300 center. I have BPX surrounds and an M&K MX-125 subwoofer. I actually don't use the sub anymore - not because it's not a good speaker, I just don't need it with the 2006s!

Hey Definitive guys I got a question for ya. As my post said I have 7002's for mains that recently replaced 2004's. I have BPVX's for surrounds. Do you think it would be an improvment to just put my old 2004's in the surround position? What do you think or are the BPVX's just a better speaker than the 7004's? Just in sound quality. Thanks guys J.H.

I would say go for it, Powered Towers as rears were used for some old review (can't remember which mag). IIRC it was a BP3000, BP2006, CLR3000 review.

BP-6 mains
clr2002 center
bp1.2x surrounds
Sub is an svs pb-10

I had bought a pair of studiomonitor 350's to use as mains but I returned them. I did a head to head comparison with my bp-6's and although the 6's weren't quite as clear I preferred their sound, filled the room better. I've got a bead on a used pair of bp-8's and if I get them I will use the bp-6's as side surrounds and probably one bp1.2x as a rear.

BP8 mains
Mythos 7 center
BP10 surrounds
Athena AS-P4000 sub
Yamaha electronics

Yeah, I know, the bigger speakers are in back. This is because the BP8's are crossed over at 80hz to blend better with the center, and the BP10's provide surround-channel bass. Awesome for movies and no slouch for music (though I mostly listen to music on my Athena F1's in another room.)

I just bought the same system for my new HT, except the sub. Just wondering, did you not find the subs in 7002's and 2500 enough? Does the addition of the CubeII really help that much? My room will be large (20w X 32l), but the HT is the front half and I am adding 2 BPX's at the far back wall simply for 7.1 use later. Thanks.

I used to have BP20's, CLR, and BP1's for surrounds. They made a great surround sound setup. Awesome soundfield.
I was less impressed for music-only listening, which is why I eventually sold them.

Flint350 I bought the supercube because I was using protower400 for mains for a while and that was not enough low end for sure. I really,really love the SCII though so no regrets. I think the blending of bass of the 7002's and SCII makes for a very big wall of low end bass. I like the combination.J.H.

Ya know i havent dragged them out of the basement yet but I really want to at some point. I think it will be a winning combo because powered speakers all the way around can't be a bad thing. Although the BPVX's are sweet speakers. Now it makes me kick myself for not spending the extra cash on the BPVX/P's which is the powered version of my speakers. What a dummy I am. J.H.

It's all changed now Came across a good deal on a pair of BP-10's and a CLR2000 for half of retail so I couldn't resist. Now I 'll be moving the BP-6's to side surround and one BP1.2X as rear surround, don't have the room on the rear wall for both of them. Now that I think about it, I shoulda kept my old center channel speaker and used it as a rear surround, but it's already sold.

I own a pair of Definitive SM450's and a CLR 2002. I love the setup and got a great deal on them! I bought them used from a fellow member on this forum.

Personally, I am thinking of selling my definitive set up and switching over to triads. Still in the thought process though. The def set up I have is very cool, but the triads keep piquing my interest.

Current configuration is under final construction. I haven't had a chance to hear them in the room yet. Working on a IB sub setup before I test things out. The room is my greatroom as well as my HT area so stealth was the name of the game.

UIW-75's for L/C/R
UIW BPZ/A for side Surrounds
UIW BP/A for rear Surrounds

I've got BP-10 mains, CLR1000 Center, BP-8 surrounds and BP-1's as back surrounds. Picked them all up on Ebay and Audiogon for a total of about $750 including shipping. Couldn't be happier!
