For a center, was thinking the Pro 2000 or the def tech 2002. The fronts and backs would be the Pro 1000's. The room size is 22' x 22'. All of the speakers are hanging from the ceiling and pointed down. I need your thoughts on this plan, is this system going to sound good for the size of the room. Also, I need advise on a good Sub and a good receiver for the system that will pass through 4k and all the latest technology. I want a good quality system and willing to pay more to get it. Hoping to get best bang for the buck. Thanks
As far as the speakers go, if you have to hang them, then the PM1000's would be your best choice, if you could go to stands, I'd say look into the Studio Monitor line.
Centers - Either of those centers would work, personally I think the CLR2002 has a slightly fuller sound but the PC2000 is an exact aesthetic match.
Receivers - the 4 biggies right now are Denon, Marantz, Yamaha & Onkyo, you need to decide exactly which features are impotent to you, how many channels you want and would you ever want immersive audio, these are the important things, don't get caught up in how much power a certain receiver has, it's actually the least important factor of any receiver that is more than entry level.
Sub(s) - also need to know ceiling height, if the room is open (can't be closed off with a door) to any other rooms and how many seats (coverage wise) are "important" to you to get the proper bass. Usually if you only care about one seat (or two next to each other) you can get by with one, but my room is close to that same size and I'll warn you now, your most likely looking at 2 Subs, because if you only wanted one it would have to be pretty large.
