I tried 3 identical bookshelves so 1 came alone, the styrofoam is pretty rigid so it shouldn't fall over in the packaging, my single bookshelf was fine.

I agree and to add to what David said, another plus for bookshelves in my opinion is you can use 3 identical ones up front, no need to worry about timber or sensitivity matching a different center...

Prime bookshelves go down plenty low to cross over to a subwoofer so unless you like to listen at very loud volumes or have a large room you aren't giving up anything by going with the bookshelves. I...

Thanks for the recommendation, I may have to give the diamond a try. My only problem is I like to use identical speakers across the front so I'd use one on it's side for the center and I see they're...

I've thought about giving the Ascend 170 a try, I'm sure I would enjoy their sound, I'm just not sure I could get over their shape, they seem unproportional to me. And I assume you mean the Energy RC...

Arx A1 vs SVS Prime B/S vs Deftech SM45

Hey guys, I compared these 3 bookshelf speakers a few months back but haven't had a chance to post impressions yet. I've had ARX A1's for a few years now but I wanted to check out the Primes and I've...

I have ARX A1s and I might not listen as loud as some people but I've had them at 85 dbs before and they still sound very composed to me at that level. It could also be your amp clipping though, but...

I wouldn't worry about dolby atmos and your receiver is fine, just make sure you get speakers that are 6 or 8 ohm and you'll be good to go. I haven't personally heard any on your list but I've heard...

Are you not going to have a center channel? I would think with home theater you really want a center and with a $1500 budget for all 5 speakers that should be no problem. Most people will chime in...

I use an emotiva UMC 200 which has a built in parametric EQ. You really need some kind of measuring system though to properly use EQ, I use REW which is pretty easy to use.

I have a set of 505's as well and just like any subwoofer and most towers for that matter they will sound boomy if not setup right. The room has more to do with frequencies under 100HZ sounding boomy...

Looks like the mic was the issue, it's pretty consistent with the new one except the 60hz area has the big spike.
