I really don't want to change them out. Might be back to the drawing board.
Yes part of it was the weight and part design of mount. I needed to add the extension on the mount and it used a set screw into the plastic to hold it. After spending my hard earned cash for these speakers I did not like the idea of them falling or sagging. I wanted to make sure all the speakers were aimed at the MLP and the Omni mounts gave me better options. You may be able to use your mounts though as mentioned above check the weight.

I think my JBL's are around 4.5 lbs. I am trying to think back when I got the mounts (11 yrs ago) and I believe they were rated close to 10 lbs but I can't believe it would be less than 8 lbs. I'll get up on a ladder and see if I can see any identifying marks/model number but I kinda doubt it.

BTW if it matters, I used these type of bolts to install them.

Yes those toggle bolts are good! Where I could not screw the mount into a stud I used those and so far are holding well.

SO, you're using front surrounds instead or you also have the side and back surrounds?

FYI,
Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 350 (Pair) for only $160 shipped. Cheaper than ONE PM1000's retail price :-)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882325059

Makes me want to return the 450's I got a few days ago and buy the 350's. That's almost $100 in saving for other toys :-)

I saw them in my Newegg Email. I wish they weren't so big, I would replace all of my SR8080s and hang 4 off the ceiling for Atmos. They are great speakers, I owned them when they first came out.

Thank you.

I am going to try the same setup this weekend. My room only have 3 walls and doesn't have the option for L/R surround speakers placement and I don't want to hang one speaker in the ceiling 😏



Side note for 450's owners: You might want to try move your speakers around and try them at multiple locations. I just tried moving mine around and finally found the hotspot for them. I swear I could hear the details that I never heard when I had my Klipsch RF-82 II's. Maybe my ears are liking Def Tech better. After all, my $250 were well spent on these pair of 450's.

You're getting some 1st reflections off those side tables for the front left and right speakers sitting on the hard surface. Might want to consider 'lifting' the SM450 off these tables with a short stand or insulation mounts/pads. The following seem to work well for the pros: http://www.amazon.com/IsoAcoustics-I...s=isoacoustics

An alternative is the monopads from Auralex: http://www.amazon.com/Auralex-Monito...=auralex+mopad

I am acquiring a pair of BP1.2x to use on my rear wall where my ProCinema 60 surround rears (7.1) are positioned. The PC 60's are mounted with ProMount 90's. What can I do to use these mounts for my BP1.2x? Which have a simple key hole.

My SM450 mains have been replaced with a set of BP2006 with new subs . The SM450 are now on the side surround. I also have a CLR2300 center.

You can try these:
I think their 1/4-20, with an appropriate sized bolt/machine screw for the end that will fit the keyhole.

Hi owners only just stumbled on these speakers and reviews look really good. Currently have Klipsch Quintets and looking to replace with something better, liked the look of the ProCinema 1000. Only issue with my living area is I have to ceiling mount, has anyone mounted these from the ceiling?

Also what amps pair nicely with the ProCinema speakers?

thanks in advance.

I'm running PM-1000 fronts, PM-800 rears & a PC-2000 center with a Yamaha Aventage RX-A1020 & they're awesome!

What is your opinion on using the ProMonitor 800's for music? Moving my main system to a dedicated theater room, and looking for something small like these in the family room to mount on the wall. Would still keep a 5.1 setup for general TV use, but care the most about 2.1 for music (as far as quality is concerned).

Was thinking either the svs sb-1000 or the ProSub 1000 for the sub, and would get the 1000 center that goes with the L/R.

I'm really liking the size of these things, as we want to mount to clear up floor space. What other good options at this size/price?

Thanks for your suggestions a few weeks ago.

I pulled the trigger on a nice HT set-up:

Yamaha RX-A740
PC2000
6) PM1000 (Front/Surround/Rear)
2) LV12R

So far this set-up is smooth and sweet, but I'm having a configuration issue with my subs that seem to be handicapping their output (they just aren't bringing any noteworthy cinematic bang).

I configured the cross-over to 80Hz, but I'm not sure there is enough juice from the AVR to go around. Any recommendations on things to try with this set-up to get more from my subs?

I'm also posting in the subs forum. Just wanted to drop in on you guys since you really helped me quite a bit with my HT decisions.

I am not a sub expert but I have my crossover set at 100 and set my speakers to small. I get lots of bass though my room is completely enclosed and is a dedicated home theater. The Rythmik forum will hook you up. Having 2 of them should get your room thumping.

walkerfodder,

My understanding is that the Yamaha room equalization algorithm (YPAO) doesn't do anything for the sub(s) for your receiver model. If you want to stick with the Yamaha brand of receivers, you'll need an external solution like the MiniDSP 2x4 with REW+USB mic as a means to smooth out the lower frequencies (15Hz to 300Hz). Be prepared to roll up the sleeves and a steep learning curve as one discovers the joys/despairs of the DIY field.

An easier (but more costly) and just as effective sub equalization in a box solution is antimode by DSPeaker here: http://www.dspeaker.com/en/products/...ode-8033.shtml

But the first thing you should be doing is checking your sub setup. Are the subs in the optimal positions? Have you done a sub crawl to determine where these are?

The PM800s are very nice speakers for their price and size, but you do get quite a bit better sound (particularly better integration with your sub) from the PM1000/PC2000, if space and budget allow. Other speakers in the same general bracket would be the Golden Ear Super Sat 3 and NHT's Absolute zero (or Absolute Wall, which is essentially the same speaker, but taller and shallower for flush wall mounting, but not usable with mounts that would allow for angling/tilting).

As an aside, the SVS SB/PB1000 will significantly out preform the ProSub 1000 (The PB1000 is probably the fairer comparison, in that it is ported, and the ProSub's passive radiator is a species of port); however, you should be able to get a ProSub1000 for significantly less that the $500 MSRP, but the SVS price is pretty firm. SVS does have the income audition, so might as well try it out first. If your primary interest is music, most will recommend the sealed SVS, but the Rhythmik LV12R with it's servo technology is a way to get the best of both worlds (output of a ported sub, but still very musical), but the price tag is a bit higher.

The Rythmik LV12R is $569. I own one and love it.

Hey guys I removed the grilles from all of my Def Techs the other night & this morning I noticed these surface scratches on the aluminum dome from my PC-2000. Is this something I need to be worried about???

Thanks so much guys!

Bit the bullet and ordered SM350s for the Front L/R. Newegg price of 160$ was too good to ignore ):

I also experimented with Dolby pliiz during the weekend by adding a pair of old Yamaha speakers and noticed improvement in the front soundstage. I am targeting this configuration after the SM350s arrive:
PC2000 center
SM350 Front L/R
PM1000 Rear L/R
PM800 Front heights L/R
BIC PL200 sub

5.1 speaker setup advise

Hi,

I'm trying to zero in on the speakers for my first 5.1 speaker setup. This will be for my loft 15' x 14' with 8' ceiling. I will be primarily watching movies and sports occasionally. This is what I'm thinking so far:

FL/FR - Promonitor 1000
FC - Procenter 2000
SL/SR - Promonitor 1000 or Mythos XTR20BP or SR-8040BP
Sub - Supercube 2000 or Prosub 1000

For the sides, will Promonitor 1000 be a better match instead of going with bi-polars in terms of sound quality? I have a Pioneer Receiver SC-1522K and after reading through the forums I realized that I have to choose a global crossover setting. From Def Tech website, for the bi-polar speakers the suggested crossover setting is 120Hz or for Promonitor 1000 it's 80Hz will that be an issue?

Thanks,
Ramesh

Also what amps pair nicely with the ProCinema speakers?

thanks in advance.

A little late posting a reply, but I'm running PM-1000 fronts, PM-800 rears & a PC-2000 center with a Polk
DSW550 sub hooked up to an Onkyo TX-NR809 and it sounds great.

FL/FR - Promonitor 1000
FC - Procenter 2000
SL/SR - Promonitor 1000 or Mythos XTR20BP or SR-8040BP
Sub - Supercube 2000 or Prosub 1000

I have the SR8040BP for my sides and rears with 1000's for fronts and 2000 for the center. I have a Pioneer too and cross everything at 100 with my Rythmik sub and love it.

Epson Pro Cinema 6030 | OPPO BDP - 103 | Pioneer Elite VSX 70 | Definitive Technology PM 1000 (L/R) | PC 2000 (C) | SR8040BP's (7.1) | Rythmik LV12R | Carada Criterion Brilliant White 118" | URC MX 780 & MRF 350 | ATS Acoustic Panels | Sanus AV Rack | DirecTv | Roku 2 | Monoprice 12AWG |

I have the pro cinema 600's in my basement. I just bought the pro cinema 1000 center channel to replace the 600 channel; got it for $100 at best buy so I figured why not. Will the 1000 center be too much pairing it with the 600's or will I be ok?

The drivers of Procenter 1000 are larger than Procinema 600 speakers. I would recommend running auto calibration from your receiver (if it has something like Audyssey, etc.). This will adjust the levels of the front soundstage. If not, you can also manually reduce the level of center channel if you find it overpowering the front L/R speakers. Lot of people prefer powerful center channel for dialogue clarity.

In the long run, you may consider getting Promonitor 800s for front L/R which will fully match the procenter 1000.
