That sub is awesome, it's such a monster to see in person. It will dwarf the the smaller floorstanders that you purchased. Even next to the RF 7ii's it is still huge.


What is your avr powering them? And can you answer the above questions by ack_bk so we may be able to assist

I meant the low-range drivers, they are small. I doubt that I am able to set crossover for the towers, since its build-in the speakers. No EQ. I am using now DENON PMA-655R amplifier. Speakers are set properly... in the same positions like the Infinity speakers.

Next week should come new DENON AVR X2200W.

Sorry when I meant set the speakers to "small" I meant in your amp/AVR. I also meant to set the crossover for your speakers in the amp/AVR. I don't know enough about the Denon PMA-655R but I can tell you the AVR-X2200 will allow you to tweak that.

Something to read for you that can help:

Unhappy

655R is simple amplifier



So I will wait for the new AVR... thanks for now...if it wont be fixed... I will sell them probably..


//edit:
I've mesured the diameter of Infinity Alpha 40 and RP-260F ... the size of drivers are the same... 14cm, but I am missing bass production and MIDs production... I believe that the DENON AVR will fix it digitaly with some EQ settings...but why are they worst then the Infinity Alpha 40 in stock settings???? So now I know , that next time I will buy again 3 way speakers... its much better difference

So I'm contemplating getting the 280Fs and wanted to know if the 250c is a capable CC? I don't know if I'll have enough to go with the 450c. Still deciding between these and the Empteks.

R115SW is monstroooouuuus SUB... even on min gain, and low freq. everything is bumbing in my room poor pooor neighbours. I am affraid I will not be able use it often





Cauves, Congrat's to your new speakers and sub. I love look 15" driver !!!! Hope all will works well for you on the end with new AVR. Many of us had or still have 6" or 8" towers and as long as you will set them up as small on your new avr, crossover start with 80hz they should sounds amazing with your sub!!!

With your towers I will go 450c no question about it. Center is really big deal for movies so get the best you can. Better to wait and get right one then get 250c and when lose $$$ and upgrade to 450c.

I think the 250c would be fine to start with. Only difference between the 2 is the extra two 5.25" drivers.
You can always upgrade in the future
Although it is best to get the biggest one you can even if you have to stretch your budget a bit in the begging.

How do you guys toe your mains? If you imagine a line coming straight out of the tweeter on your mains, do you toe them so the lines would intersect at your head, in front of you, or behind you? Have you tried playing with different toe settings?

If you picture our seating area as a 3 person couch, with the MLP being the center cushion and my wife and I sitting on the outer cushions, I have my mains aimed at our inner shoulders/arms. That way they cross behind the MLP, not aimed directly at the MLP.

If I put my laser pointer on the outer side of each tower, it hits about mid seat back where my wife and I are sitting. So effectively the towers are aimed at our inner arm rests.

It's a VTI DFC. I had to put some brackets on the back of it to keep the speaker from slowly sliding off.

Interesting. Did you experiment with angles or just started with that and liked it?

I ask because I had my mains aimed to cross right at my head and discovered that when I leaned forward or even got up off the couch, the stereo image was much better. So i re-aimed so they now cross a bit behind MLP (similar to what you are doing) and the sound is noticeably better.

At least my RP-280 mains seemed to benefit from some experimentation with toe in. I was surprised what a difference a small change can make.

I'm curious if others have experimented with toe angles and have similar observations?

I have mine angled at each of my shoulders. I did try, in front, at, and behind. For such an easy trial and error, everyone should at least try it and see what they prefer.

I have a pair and they are excellent. I originally had them as my wides in 5.1 setup. When I bumped up to the 82's to replace my 62 fronts so I moved my 62's to replace the 61's. I am currently running the 61's combed with a PB1000 in my loft (secondary setup).... They are very good speakers.

How are you planning to use them?

Thanks for the input.
I almost went for the 81 II's but figure these will be plenty.
