I think they are fine with a sub and depending on what you are used to, the VGT may sound fine without one. In our case, I think my wife is just used to towers with 8" and 10" drivers.

It's both..one Ultra and one Verus Grand. Thought anyone looking at both brands might like to see them side by side.

This is a good point! Ed Mullen and I discussed cascading the crossovers on the rear subs and it is on my to-do list once I get done with physical therapy and the neck issue is squared away. Right...

I appreciate the ideas joe. The Ultra center is already on the FedEx truck so can't do much there. ;)

I did test the Ultra center with 60-100Hz crossover but not much difference other than I...

Denon X4000. Lightning strike sent it to the great AVR graveyard so the X4100 was a no brainer. Love this thing!

I actually prefer it with the the switch toggled to "stand" and the low end is more present. I can appreciate when I toggle to cabinet mode and the low end gets leaner..I can immediately tell it...

SVS pointed to reflections as the most likely culprit and suggested adding room treatments as many in this thread have. Other than the sidewalls that are about 10 feet away on each side of the center...

Ahh, I thought it was just adjusting the roll off. Ran Audyssey with it in "On Stand" mode then toggled it afterwards. It certainly works on cutting some of the low end and can see it being great for...

I agree 100% with that statement. Part of me is tempted to keep the Ultra towers as I have cats and dread the Verus piano black finish getting scratches. The center is pretty safe where it is.

For me it is.

I am certainly open to it being my room or my ears...or my preferred sound style. I just know, for me, in my room, the Aperion really took the crown between the two centers. My wife...
