Yesterday my P363 came in! I am using a Denon X1000 with a Sony SA-W2500 Sub. I am a bit confused to what HZ to set the p363 to. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Hi beebee5, just run auto setup. The Denon may set the P363 to Large, if so you want to reset them to Small and raise the crossover point to 80hz so the lower frequencies are passed to the sub.

The binding posts on my P363's snapped off in a move. What is the best way to replace/repair them either with aftermarket or OEM parts?

Any decreased performance at all in using aftermarket parts? Opinions are nice.

Also, does anyone have the rubber feet that came with their P363's and don't need them? I installed the plastic feet when I had carpet. Now I have hardwood floor and could use the rubber. If you have them and are willing to donate them.....or sell them, please PM me.

I've been enjoying my Primus set for 5 years. They represent a truly great value in speakers and I've been very impressed by their sound.

But I am curious. If you were to say what speakers would be the "next level" up from these, what would they be?

Knowing how much you like the Primus line, you might consider Infinity's newer "Reference" series. Not in Revel territory but derived from them.

Would you say there is a big difference between the Primus and the Reference?

A review of the Reference is here http://hometheaterreview.com/measure...also-did-full/


I would say that they are probably more like the Beta and Interlude line than the Primus, substantially superior in every way.

Question P363 Replacement Part

Hello everyone. I am the new owner of a pair of P363 Primus Towers and a P351 Center. Love them so far. I purchased these off ebay and one of them came with a blown 6.5" woofer. I have tried calling Harmon and they say they are on back order. Does anyone know where to look for a replacement woofer? or does anyone have a 363 tower that is no longer working but may have a functioning woofer? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

p.s. the part number is 16PR85BZQ-HW04-E

Thanks again

Chance

When I do room correcting programs with various receivers I get a crossover set at 80Hz for the 363s. Both my onkyo and my yamaha have chosen this crossover for these speakers. Hope this helps.

Hmm, Audyssey in my TX-NR809 crossed my P363s over at 40 Hz. I changed it to 80 Hz.

Regardless of what my receiver set the crossover frequency at I generally change it to 80Hz as a starting point and adjust to preference. I will never lower it below what the receiver set it to initially though.

Reviewers say that you can, but it may take some work.

Either use the holes where the speaker wire would go into or remove the red and black plastic plugs and insert banana plugs there.

I think it was the Audioholics review (can't remember) where the guy said he had to drill them out. So if there is the will, there's a way

Drill? Really? Just slide a knife edge under the lip and they will pop right off. I've done this on all 15 of the Primus speakers I've setup and it takes about 5 seconds per speaker. Make sure you use a real knife and not a butter knife. It has to have a sharp edge to get underneath the flush mounted plug lip.

These things are a steal at that price. A bit trebly for me, but still a very detailed full range speaker.
