Just got 4 chorus 706's and 700 center. Big upgrade for me. I ran Audyssey and it set the crossover with my SVS SB2000 sub at 40 hz. The SVS site suggests a crossover of 100 hz. That's a big...

Ordered the Focals. We entertain a lot in the den for sports events and those PA speakers didn't pass the looks test. Don't judge. I guess the deciding factors were that both the Focal and ML systems...

Sorry to show my ignorance again but what are pro/PA speakers? I'm guessing the tiny Minx satellite speakers don't qualify as pro/PA. LOL!

Well, I just got the SVS sB2000 so sounds like I'm good there. Have you heard the Focal 706's? The Martin Logan's are great but the Focals are a little larger and have the 6 1/2 inch woofer, plus...

Focal Chorus 706v2 vs Martin Logan LX16

Debating between these 2. About the same price but the Focals are 8 ohm which would allow me to safely use my current Onkyo 616. Don't mind upgrading the receiver if the ML's are better. Can also...

Accessories4less recommended the Focal chorus 706 v2 and the cc700 for the center. 8 ohm speakers so I'm now leaning toward going that route so I don't need to replace my receiver simply to get the 4...

But if the minx are 86 db and the Martin Logan's are 91 db, shouldn't that make a difference? You're making me think way too much for a Saturday morning.
