This is my setup, used the Audessey setting to determine Large or Small
Samsung DLP HDTV
Front- Infinity Primus 362 Floor Speakers
Center - Infinity Primus 350
Surround - Bose 501 Floor Speakers (left over from old system - 10 yrs old)
Sub - Mirage Frx-S10
The bose speakers sound good, but wonder how the Infinity 252 floor speakers would sound as the back surround. That should be a good match to the Infinity 362 and 350 center. I have been pleased with the Infinity speakers so far, and was curious if anyone had heard the 252's as back surround, and how good they sounded.
Audessey setup of Sub- the instructions say:
set volume to center
Crossover Frequency - maximum
Low pass filter and standby mode - Off
My Mirage Sub is one that I bought 10 yrs ago, and don't have the same controls. It has a Level Control, and a LP Filter Control. How would you set those in order to best maximize the Auddesey setup?
The results of my setup are: Front - Large, Center - Small, Surround - Large
FL - 14.9ft channel level -3.0db
FR - 15.0ft channel level -2.5db
C - 14.3 ft channel level -2.5db
SW - 14.0 ft channel level +6.5db
SL - 7.5 ft channel level 0db
SR - 8.6ft channel level +1.5db
Crossover Frequency : 80HZ
I would choose the 252 over the 362 for my rear surround based on size. It's give and take with the wife. She almost freaked when I wheeled in the 362's for the front. I can just imagine if I wheeled in two more for the rear. The 252's are only about 3 or 4 inches shorter than the 362. They are still fairly large, and should provide good surround. I also considered the 162 on stands, but felt the extra cost of stands made the 252 an attractive opton.
