+10

Object oriented audio programming is one of the best new concepts in audio in a LONG time. I don't think people realize how much difference this will be able to make in 3D sound immersion.

I disagree because I don't think the Pioneer center is particularly worse than the left/right speakers. I guess it's because I don't have that great opinion of them either. (lol)

No one on the forum that talks about timbre matching says to buy a crappy center. Buy good left and right speakers with a good matching center.

Moving on.

The PSAs are not rated half space and have a much higher sensitivity rating. 95 vs 89 if you convert the HSU to full space.

Meanwhile, the PSA are built more like pro audio speakers designed for...

The HSU speaker sensitivity ratings are for half space. (http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/hb-1.html) Subtract 3db for full space. So likely not any more efficient than some other comparably priced...

Now you just have to figure out where the next two subs you buy are going. Maybe you can get rid of some extra seating :D

Do you already have a sub (make/model)? Do you like bass heavy music genres? If so, might be better to use a sub with the Sierra 2s for the same budget. Otherwise, the towers make sense to me :)

Like mthomas47 mentioned, you could see if the WAF would let you put the PC sub over in that corner which is really limited on space, and then the PB-2000 over on the other side. Since the PC sub...

Going from 5.1.2 to 5.2.2 can certainly provide some good benefits as long as you have some placement options to experiment with for the 2nd sub. As someone with a 5.2.2 setup, I think you are...

Based on what information that you have???

Do the math. I gave you the numbers. Doubtful that's going to happen that it will reach 100db at 20hz. The CEA 2010 measurements at 20hz are 92db at 2...

Room EQ will often set some speakers as large because some people like to run speakers that can play lower large. How does it know what your preference is? Same with crossover settings.

With your budget, allocating a few hundred more for the X3300W with MultEQ XT32 and Sub EQ HT is not a bad idea, IMO. It provides better overall room EQ for the speakers and sub than MultEQ XT in the...
