No benefits. And it would be difficult because you would have to open up the speakers and modify or bypass some of the internal wiring and crossover.

Thx for the answer if no benefits so no need to upgrade and waste $

I am happy with my system but always love to improve if needed


Another Q: I have in my system 2 Gold sub and my room is just about 2800 cubic feet i feel it nice and the walls shake from the sub's but some told me if i add another 2 gold sub in the back it will reduce the shake and become more smooth

I run 9.2.6

Gold LCR and the rest are gold Omni SE for the surround and heights

I ran the DSP amp 700 on +11

most of the time, two subs, well positioned in the room, are adequate for creating very consistent (not necessary smooth) bass across the seating area. then, some EQ to squash the peaks gets it smooth.

four subs, again well positioned, can make things consistent over a wider area but are not a giant improvement.

i don't know the best online video or demo or setup guide to point you to but the basic research is here:

with this photo summarizing things about best placement (which is far more important than 2 versus 4 subs):

Hello,

below is my new idea (see attachment).

Setup is 5.1, rear speaker are Bronze SAT, front speaker are Bronze LCR.
Is it better to:
  • turn the speaker towards the wall, send the sound against the back wall and use the reflection to get a more diffuse sound
  • turn the speaker towards the main seat
  • install Bronze Surround instead of Bronze SAT or Bronze LCR
Right side is no wall, so an In-wall installation is impossible. Subwoofer are used as an array as described earlier.

Thanks,
David

Looks like all inCeiling speakers? And optimized for one main seat?

I would place the surround speakers pointing toward the main seat, either directly left and right fo the seat (ie, a little forward of where they are in the diagram) or where you have them, but pointed at the main seat or at each other.

Yes, inCeilling speakers (Ceilling height is 8,3feet). It is a living room, so of course we have several seats (see attachment). But, I am aware that only one place can fit best. That is the one you can see in my previous entry. A good compromise is, of course, also acceptable.

As moving the speaker is difficult (lots of wood in the ceilling), I will try to turn the speaker and point towards the seat first.

I also understood that changing the speaker to Bronze Surround is useless.

You don't have a wall on the right hand side of the main seat so a traditional Triad Surround speaker would have no where to be mounted.

In a pinch, you could use the back wall and that would be an interesting experiment, but it's further from "spec". That doesn't mean it might not sound good or even better to you, but it would he hard to predict without being in the room and trying it.
