I am thinking about different setups with PSB speakers and would like your thoughts on them!

It will be used for movies only.

My room is 4 meters wide and 8 meters long. In feets it will be 13x26.

Panasonic PT-AT8000e
Fixed frame 136" screen

Setup 1: 7.2

Image T6 fronts
Image C5
Image B6 surrounds
Image B6 surround backs
Dual SVS PB2000
Onkyo TX-NR1010

Setup 2: 9.2

Image T5 fronts
Image C5
Image B5 heights
Image B5 surrounds
Image B5 surround back
Dual SVS PB2000
Onkyo TX-NR3010

Setup 3: 11.2

B5 fronts
C5
B5 heights
B5 wides
B5 surrounds
B5 surround back
Dual SVS PB2000
Onkyo TX-NR3010
Emotiva XPA-5

Any comments or other ideas would be nice.

When i have saved more money I plan to expand to 4 subs.
The first option (7.2) but with the B6s as fronts unless you want the towers to avoid using stands. If you're only going to use the system for movies and you have a sub the towers aren't really needed. The NR1010 is a good choice and it should have enough power for decent rear surround sound at lower volumes, at least in 5.1 mode.

Sony 5700ES

I have now been to the dealer and listened to the PSB speakers and have now got a new setup in my head. Lol.

This setup will include atmos.

9.2.2

Pioneer SC-LX87
Image B6 fronts
Image C5 center
Image B6 wides
Image B6 surround
Image B6 surround back
Dual SVS PB2000
2 in ceiling speakers for atmos (dont know which yet)

I am more keen on this setup I guess, but not really sure yet.

What do you think?

is the center going under the screen?

optimally you would want B6's for all 3 front channels if it will fit of course

Panasonic 65VT30 | Panasonic AE8000 HD PJ | Denon x4000 | Emotiva XPA-5 | PSB imagine B's | PSB image c5 | PSB B4's | DUAL PSA XS30 | OPPO 103 | minidsp
