I am looking to upgrade only the sound portion of my home theater system and would like some input on what my weakest link is or where I should invest money next. I just finished adding 7 acoustic panels which helped to tighten up the room. The room is 12’ wide by 25’ long and 8’ ceilings. The theater room is setup lengthwise as expected.
Receiver: Pioneer VSX 1122
Blu Ray: Panasonic BDT220
Subwoofer: JBL PB12
Speakers: JBL North Ridge NSPii series W/ NSP center channel
Cables: All cables are above PAR to high end.
Power Conditioner: Monster NHT 1700
My initial thought is that either my subwoofer or at least my main speakers need to be upgraded? Does anyone know how this center channel ranks? It seems to perform well?
I was thinking of maybe replacing the JBL PB12 with the SVS PB12 @769.00 dollars.
Or what do you all think?
You need to state what you think is lacking or you will get all kinds of answers.
There are posters that don't like a particular brand so they will tell you to get rid of it without even hearing what increase you are looking for.
I think the SVS will be a better sub than the JBL.
But before you do that have you tried moving your speakers away from the walls and try a slight toe in if you have not already.
Speaker placement will change how a speaker sounds.
