I have a pretty small room (11 x 13) that I will use for HT and also live in a condo, so can't disturb neighbors too much
TV is Panasonic 50" 9UK.
I've read all the posts on Gallo and Orbs but still not sure which one is a better choice. 50% movies / sports , 30% just watching TV, and 20% music.
I am down to the following choices:
Orb: 4 mod1 and 1 mod2 for center + super 8 sub
Gallo: 5 Adivas + TR-1 sub
Value: Gallo system is about 1/3 more expensive than Orb including 5 wall mounts and shipping
Orb has a better sub (although I can't play my system that loud, so may not be a big advantage). I did install base shakers in my couch to compensate. Orb is also a few hundred cheaper
But for Orb, need to do a crossover at 150, worried that may be an issue especially for music and not all receivers support that. Thought about getting mod2s instead of mod1s but they don't really improve the crossover frequency.
With Gallo Adiva, can do crossover at 100 and feel better about it (80 may be pushing it).
Based on specs, Gallo Adivas should give me better overall sound since they go down to at least 100. In practical terms, don't know if the Orb sub can compensate enough to hide the high crossover.
Am I missing anything?
