Hi. New member here.
You guys have a lot more knowledge than me so I'm trying to get help.
I'm finally upgrading my home theater. Speaker wise, I've always owned a mish mash of brand names and varying quality. I wanted to come up with something better. I still don't want to spend too much but know I have to pay more for something decent and reasonably matching.
The mention of Phase Tech speakers here interested me. I own some 14 year old 7T's that I'm happy with. I also own a 1 year old Polk SW111 sub. I never owned a sub before so you can see I'm just getting into this. I'm happy with these two.
Now I want to upgrade my center speaker and rear surrounds. I presently own an old Infinity Video1 cs and some old Yamaha NSA202's rr's. I imagine you guys might be laughing but like I said, I'm here for help.
With my limited knowledge I'm trying to reasonably match my 7'Ts and Polk sub. I've called PT about the Velocity Series cs "V-6" and the "V-Surrounds". The sales head there, Cheryl, said they would work well with what I have. To be honest, the surrounds are quite a bit more money than what I thought I'd ever consider for surrounds but I'm willing to get them. The V-6 seems like a good choice too but I want to be sure.
Does anyone here have experience with the V-6? Is it a good choice? Some question it's design because there's a woofer on one side of the tweeter and a passive radiator on the other. PT says there will be no perceived "imbalance" of sound because they've designed it well to eliminate any comb filtering effects this design could give. Any experience is appreciated.
Last, I really don't want to pay even more but wondered if the PC33.1 would be the wiser buy. I know it costs more and should sound even better but if the V-6 is a good speaker then it should be fine for my needs. The PC33.1 is in a different class of speaker quality so I think that it may have less chance to be a reasonable match than the V-6?
I'm fairly comfortable with my choice but would feel better if someone here could vouch for the V-6 's sound.
Sorry for long post. Thanks for any help.
