When I first got the MA Vectors, and I didn't do much configuring and I just set the Crossover to 80Hz, I watched Lone Survivor and during one of the helicopter scenes my Right Rear Speaker made like a crackling noise, as if too much treble and I thought I had popped the Speaker.

I did a test tone afterwards and it's fine. But, I now realize that, that happened because the Crossover was set to 80Hz, it's too low for these Speakers.

YPAO set the Crossover to 120Hz, I watched I Frankenstein the other day and it sounded ok.

I watched a Bollywood flick and in those films you have 5-7 min songs during the film, I noticed that the Subwoofer was giving out too much bass during one song, it may be the crap authoring of the bluray as bollywood blurays aren't that impressive but maybe I was thinking, I could set the Satellites to give out little more bass so instead of 80Hz, set to 100Hz instead of YPAO's set of 120Hz?

Is a 10Hz jump considerable? If I heard that worrying noise from my Surrounds during that Helicopter scene, I don't want that to happen again it could damage my Speakers.
If missed this I apologize, but what kind of sub are you using?

Hello, I currently have a pair of RX2s and an RX Centre and I power these with a Marantz SR6007. My room is about 25ft x 20ft and I sit about 10ft away from the speakers. Do you think I will benefit from adding a power amp to the RX2s? I was thinking of an Emotiva XPA200 or older UPA series. Thank you in advance for your input.

The best thing you can do to improve your setup over the long term is to improve the sub. You would be amazed at how much it helps your overall system. The sub you have may seem like it sounds great, but the reality is that it's not a very powerful sub with clean bass at high volume. Subs typically require a much bigger box to produce the bass you need and want unless you spend a good bit more money to buy a smaller one with a much stronger amp. You're definitely in the ballpark in terms of the crossover. 100-120 seems about right for those speakers. I think you really need a bigger and better Sub to really improve that system. 100 watt subs won't give you that clean mid and lower bass that you need to complement those speakers unless the room is on the smaller side. You'll need to spend a min of $500 to get a decent sub from one of the internet direct companies like HSU, SVS, PSA, etc. The other issue of volume is likely due to a problem with your settings in the AVR which I think was mentioned previously. Hope that helps.

I'm trying to decide on the finish since it wouldn't match my RX centre, what part of Southern California are you in? I'm in San Diego.

Ok, I have read too many conflicting comments about having presence speakers. I have heard some of the same things about rear surrounds.

I plan to contribute to the mass of post on the subject real soon. I have decided to use some RX1’s in this test. I do have a bit of construction to do for proper placement, but I do look forward to hearing it.

Currently I do have my AVR Onkyo 5008 powering the front stage, with (2) separate 2channel amps for the side and rear surrounds. I won’t take away from the AVR amp in this setup, but add another 2channel amp just for the front heights.

Onkyo 5008 for front stage of RX2’s and RX center
Onkyo 2channel amp for side surrounds
Onkyo 2channel amp for rear surrounds
Onkyo 2channel amp for the height speakers.

Monitor Audio BX6

OK! So I fell in love with Monitor Audio today in a store showroom (thx to this forum).

The BX6 seem to fit my budget.
If there are any owners of this set on this thread, how do you like them??

Any suggestions for a center or sub to match this set?

I'd go with the bx center or bx2 for the center. Look at internet direct (ID) companies like hsu, svs, power sound, etc for good subs. Personally I have a hsu vtf 3 and it sounds amazing for movies and excellent with music too.

How big is you room? Budget?

Thanks, the bx center looks excellent. I'll check out the subs you recommended.

The room is 21x17, but it has an open air layout with the kitchen (for music).
Budget $2500- with $1200 being set aside for the BX6 and receiver.
So i have to squeeze a center, sub and two rears out of the remaining, or do the unthinkable and not finish the rears until later.

Your room is roughly the same size as mine. The vtf3 mk4 is on sale right now for $639, but not sure how long the sale lasts, just call. They're really nice and can help with any questions.

http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/vtf-3mk4.html

The bx1 would do well for rears. $379/pr
Center is $299

http://saturdayaudio.com

That should get you right at your budget. If you call they may give a discount ordering multiple speakers. Never hurts to ask

If you like to build stuff, you could always DIY a sub for a little cheaper. I'm about to give it a try myself just to see if I can do it.

Hi. I have the BX6, BXFX, BX center, BX1 (FRONT HEIGHT) and 2xSVS SB12 na di like it very much. The subs blends perfectly with the BX6...my room is around 1600 cubic feet...i am a little more on music then movies but for movies i would like ported sub for a little more shaking . I am just on the fence if i will sell my 2xSB12 and get on PB12 PLUS...but i think for now i will keep this combination...i will see.

How do you like the BX1's as front height speakers? Do you think it was a waste or they are too much speaker for the job?

or

Do you feel they work perfectly for you? How much information are you getting from the front heights? Would you recommend the front height timbre matching to someone else setup

I'm in the process of adding some RX1's for front heights.

Hi...i was on the fence buying them or not for almost half a year...and then after a numerous thread i read i have decided to buy them...and i would say i am not sorry for buying them...i listen to neo:x with height processing as i found that neo:x gave more use of them as audyssey dsx or dolby plZ but that also depends on movie, music...sometimes with audyssey the movies sounds odd because also the speech is coming from height channels sometimes not...for now i am listening to neo:x but i will experiment futher. I can almost instantly hear if they are not in use so i would say that there is a difference between having heights or not..and i mind you i dont have perfect location for them as they are only around 0,4 m above front speakers but the sound is fuller in front..i like it so if you have a space for them go for it

Thanks for the input. I've been on the fence for much longer then you. while I thought about doing it, I bought a few things I may need to install them, and now I am ready to try it out.

I do not have a high ceiling so I suppose you can say, mine won't have proper placement either.

Thank you!

No, I wish they were the PB13 Ultras... lol

They are the PB12Pluses, and I have 2sets of RXFX's, and I love those di-pole speakers.

I hope I have them all installed before the weekend is out. I am looking forward to a nice 9channel setup.

I thought they were PB12+ but i wasnt 100% sure . I wish i had a few cm of place to put a PB12+ on the left or right side...if i exchange bx6 for bx2 that would be possibility . I had a ported sub before mirage omni S12, very very nice sub but it seemd boomy in my medium sized room so i exchanged it for 2xSB12 and what a difference but a little short of impact. I like the sound very much but i think i miss a little more impact and shaking when watching movie. I had one SB before but it wasnt enough for my taste so i purchased another one and it was better. They shake but not that much. I was thinking 2xpb1000 (should be plenty for my room) or 1xpb2000 (about same as 2xpb1000) or my favourite PB12+ (that is what i want, nice to have a little headroom ) i didnt know that i am such a basshead LOL . How you like your PB+ s ?

How far apart are your main speakers?
How far apart are your wide set?

I had a ported sub before mirage omni S12, very very nice sub but it seemd boomy in my medium sized room so i exchanged it for 2xSB12 and what a difference but a little short of impact. I like the sound very much but i think i miss a little more impact and shaking when watching movie. I had one SB before but it wasnt enough for my taste so i purchased another one and it was better. They shake but not that much. I was thinking 2xpb1000 (should be plenty for my room) or 1xpb2000 (about same as 2xpb1000) or my favourite PB12+ (that is what i want, nice to have a little headroom ) i didnt know that i am such a basshead LOL . How you like your PB+ s ?
I love'em

I no longer describe how they sound, but how they feel. I am amazed at time that they seem to shake the floor, but that isn't possible since they are sitting on concrete.

That type of spacing wouldn't work for me. My room is 13ft wide, and I sit 9ft from the screen. I do have my speakers 9ft apart.

I don't think wide would work for me even if I had the room, 20ft apart is just too much unneeded space to me.

You don't need 20'. My setup is on the long wall of my room. The only reason mine are so far apart is due to the French doors. You could put them near the wall and maybe a little closer to you to create more of a circle around you. I just work with what I got.

Here's a pic, ignore the mess. We're prepping for out of town guests
