If so, how well do they work in this application and how do you make sure that you maintain a calibrated signal level with a receiver feeding these speakers via the Dynaudio Hub? Unfortuantely I do not see any mention of using the Xeo speaker as surrounds on the Dynaudio website or in their owners manuals, making me question if Dynaudio does not think that this is a practical application for these models. Otherwise they would have included at least mention of this application and maybe even a drawing of the setup to use these as surrounds as they do for other application.
When using the Excite X34 for L-R and possibly the X18 as center (with no sub), which model of Xeo do you feel would work best in a room that is 15 feet deep in total in a 5.0 installation with a 70db average listening level?
I thought about using xeo's for surrounds at one time(the Xeo 2 was not out yet) but decided against it.What I was not sure about is how would my pre amp control the volume?The Xeo 3 have to use the transmitter to control them...including the volume.My dealer said I could set the volume to 100% and calibrate it with the pre amp.I decided against it and bought the excite 12 instead.I think the Xeo 2 is a little different,in that you can run an analog cable to it from the pre amp.Mr Integration uses the Xeo 2 for surrounds I believe.
