You can't be serious.

I know you didn't ask me but I have a 7.2 system and if I didn't use the rears(instead of the side surrounds) when I listen to 5.1 music, I wouldn't bother.
I think you'd be taking quite a step down from the Performas plus the loss and hassle of selling speakers.
I'm assuming you can't use a F208 for the center.

I'm looking at a pair used of Revel F30 speakers on craigslist. Question what is the recommended distance from the backwall on these speakers? The speakers are a great deal at 400 so Im very tempted. The tweeters are dented, so I have contacted revel for a replacement cost... Is this a good deal for Revel F30s?

Current Setup
Denon X4000 with Outlaw 750 Amplifier
Selah SSR as mainsCustom custom Sardonyx with with scans-peak drivers
Usher 721 and 711
SI 18D2 Sealed Subwoofer
Overnight Sensations desktop speakers

The further out from the (all) walls, the better the soundstage. Both in width and depth.

Custom, one of a kind pair, MJC212 mains, mod PT800 center, PT800 surrounds, SUB1500s. Parasound P7, Citation 19, Parasound HCA2205A, HK AVR3600, Marantz TT, Denon disc player, MacBook Pro w/ DragonFly usbDAC.

Yes I have a console so I need a horizontal center channel. I wonder how much of a step down it is though...same material drivers, similar designs.

I do agree the hassle is a deterrent, but it would be very minimal cost if the resale of the F208/C208 is decent. I still have the plastic on my speakers .

If I knew where you lived I'd come over and rip that plastic right off!

Check Audiogon for price comparo.
$400 sounds very good but the cost and lead time for the tweets might erase any price advantage.
Looking at your existing system I'm guessing you're adding a system and not replacing what you have.

I just kinda wanted to play with having towers. Ive seen them sell from 750-999 on ebay so I understand the value. I will call revel on Monday for the costs of the tweeters.

Nakid Revels

So the wife hates the aluminum polished sides on the Salons, so I took em off and I'm kind of enjoying them nakid. I have 3/8" plug covers coming for the bolt holes that will hopefully look somewhat stock. Anyone else do this with their v1 Revel Ultimas?

Based on history, that'll be next. Probably in a couple of years.

just purchased a pair of F208 for my bedroom, have had it for about 5 days. So far, I like what I'm hearing. The sound is lively and revealing, a slight bit forward sounding, the soundstage coming just slightly pass the plane of the speakers, but nevertheless the mids are intoxicating. Just have to experiment with taming the highs just a smidgen, maybe due to my room acoustics and/or equipment.

I'm building out a living room HT setup with Revel speakers. The room is 15' wide x 25' long with a cathedral ceiling that slopes from 9' to 18'. The TV is on the long wall. This room is open to the kitchen/breakfast room and dining room. I recently purchased M105's and a C205 for the front LR and C. I'm looking at the S12's for surrounds and a JL Audio F110 for the sub. I can get a great deal on a Denon X3100W AVR, but I'm open to suggestions.


Will the surrounds, sub and AVR play nicely with the mains I've already purchased?


Should I plug the ports on the M105's? They will be about 1-1.5' away from the back wall and about 6-12" away from bookshelves on either side of the TV.


Any other guidance would be appreciated.


Thanks, Nate.
