I am not interested in mediocre soundbars, I need a system that can fill a large room. 16'D x 18' W (24' if you count the open concept dining room) x 17'+ H. Fortunately my Micro80's system 8000 can fill a room that is 13'x24'x8' so I know its not a stretch for BA.
What type speakers are you looking for -- bookshelf or floor standing speakers?

what i am actually trying to do is build a 5.2.4 atmos setup and that may be skewing my responses. I was primarily looking at bookshelf speakers for the fronts but I want my speakers to match tonally.

The A series Boston speakers are well reviewed -- The A26 is also a good option to use as a center channel. You can always by a pair from Amazon to test out

Use the A25 for surrounds on the 5.2

They also have the smaller A23

The HSi in ceiling is one to think about for Atmos

Thank you for your recommendations. The specs on the A series are definitely in line with everything else I've looked at so far. I think will pick up a pair of the A26's or A25's and to test. At least I will end up with good pair of speakers for a 2.0 setup or adding to current BA setup for a 5.1.2 system in the den, which will get more daily use than the living room system because it's closer to the bedrooms.

It would definitely be cool to experience the Boston sound in atmos.

Shall I take that as you don't get any level of boxiness from the A26 when used as a centre? My listening room isn't very large at all, but I never could get mine to perform in this position without sounding strained. Could be some acoustic phenomenon pertaining to the room rather the speaker.

Hello,

Did anyone put M25 bookshelf speaker on a stand? Which stand would you recommend?

Best regards,

I'm still struggling with one of the 965s...

The cross-over still won't pass signal. I thought that if I just resoldered the coil that had come uncoiled that would be the last of it. But as it turns out...

Then the amp plate won't amplify. It kind of goes "pop" on power off, but not as loudly, which would indicate that the output does work as such. It just doesn't pass the attenuated high level through. As if that wasn't enought: the low level input seems to be an closed circuit internally. That's to say there is zero resistance between + and -.

Any suggestions on what to do?

Does anyone know if the VR960 features the high-level to low-level conversion thing of the 965? I was offered parts for the 960 for repairing my 965, but it seems that the 960s have a smaller amp board (in size as well as smaller component count) and a completely different crossover network (w. just the two coils, suggesting that the lows aren't filtered out).

Obviously the 960s had some issues which were then corrected in the 965s. But I have this hunch some other features were added or changed as well, so I'd better be sure what I'm in for to avoid nasty surprises.

Has anyone used the 5" BA Soundware speakers in a 2.0 or 2.1 setup, are those only good for background listening. i bought a pair a while back to use in the kitchen as background speakers and really liked them, I have to remove them because of my remodel and I want to find a way to repurpose them rather than getting rid of them. Would it be better to add them as fronts in my home theater setup (5.1 Micro 80) and buying dedicated bookshelf speakers for a 2 channel setup, or use the Soundwares and the sub from my home theater in a 2.1 setup and buy a deeper sub for the home theater? The Micro80pv sub is rated down to 30Hz but it may only reach 44
