I just purchased the QX900 front floor speakers,QX900 rear bookshelf speakers and the XP 10inch 150w subwoofer.
These speakers were added to my existing Energy take 5.2 set-up.
Both the Energy and the PA's have 89db sensitivity so I figured they might do the trick of filling in the empty speaker spots created by my Yamaha HTR-6090 purchase. Adding 4 more speakers to my already way over budget theatre system was a scary proposition.
I am running the PA floor speakers as my front, the PA bookshelf as my surround, the Energy's are now being used as the center, front presence and rear surround. I have the Energy 8" sub behind my Panasonic PT 53x54 TV and the PA 10" sub located behind our couch.
I let the speakers "burn in" over a 40 hr period with a steady sound feed and last night I turned it up for the first time.
I was always impressed by my little take 5.2 Energy speakers and I have nothing bad to say about them now, but for the price these PA speakers are a steal. The front speakers I got on sale at 65 Canadian dollars each, the bookshelf ones were on sale at 49 for the pair and I got the sub at 175.
They absolutely blow away my energy speakers and I have to say that it shocked me that they would. Now I am kicking myself that I didn't outright swap out all of the Take series speakers and go PA all the way around, especially now that the speakers have doubled with the sale ending.
The sound is clear and the "fullness" to music is something I didn't hear before I did the swap. One thing for sure the front full range floor standing speaker design has changed my enjoyment completely over the small speakers I had before.
I can't say enough about these speakers and if a person is looking at building a $5k home theatre from scratch, you couldn't go wrong with these.
Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're correct!
