Currently the Marquis is on the floor, but after we weld some steel" we'll mount the speaker above the tv

Check out those little B&W 805's on the stands.... I'll tell you what, between the Legacy Focus SE's and the amp upgrade from the Pioneer SC-05 to a Bryston 14B sst.. it's amazing the headroom I was missing. The new amp is there on the floor. Amp weighs 90 lbs and the speakers are 200lbs each.





Great Gravy!!!!!

Those are sweet, and digging the house too!

Our computer is a couple years old, and it recently caught a virus. So my mom wiped everything out with the back up Operating System disk.But now our speakers don't work, and it's driving me crazy. When i go to add new hardware it says the speakers are fine. My dad said he looked into it and we have to download the audio drive? or something. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Drivers are the interface between hardware and the computer. It allows commands from the computer to be interpreted by the component. If your computer has a sound card, such as SoundBlaster, you must go to their website, and download the driver (software) that was made for your device (soundcard) and the operating system that you use.

Does this help?

Now:

Von Schweikert VR4 genIII HSE (mains)
Von Scweikert LCR 40HSE center (custom made by VS )
Von Scweikert VR 3.5 (rears)
Paradigm servo 15v1

Found this old post by me and have added a couple things over the past couple years.

Now have Von Schweikert VR1's as surround backs and added a Paradigm Signature Servo sub.

I am under gunned compared to some of the folk here...haha. Right now I have a Def Tech pro monitor 800 speaker system, Rel T-3, a Marantz 5005, PS3, and Panny 42".

My new sm350s for mains are en route as we speak and I am working on upgrading my sub. SVS and Outlaw have my attention

Legacy, sweet.

With the added firepower, you're going to need to pursue some acoustic optimization. A superb audio experience is all about the room, and the manner in which it interacts with great loudspeakers. You've certainly got the loudspeakers.

I'm a big proponent of how proper dynamics entirely transform the listening experience. You either have it or you don't. Some individuals that haven't really experienced realistic dynamics, typically dismiss their importance in the home.

Congrats on the purchase,...Bryston-Legacy Focus SE's,...you're ready for 2 channel mastering duties

I'm thrilled with my Goldenear Tritons, 50C and the smaller surrounds. Clarity without added distortion. Superb bass with the built in subwoofers. Huge soundstage. Speakers disappear. Great for classical music and home theater. Decor matches the Vizio 553. Both appear as if they were made for each other.

SWEET!!!! Thats a sick setup Bro. Your gonna feel that right through you. Gotta love it!! Enjoy!!!

If you had a mounting/shelving means, you could experiment with them based off the right channel just inside the door,..and thus the left the same amount off the left of the display also. Allowing a little more room outside the speakers allows for a much more natural sounding acoustic perspective. When they're close to a side wall, destructive interferences take place, and can be a problem.

Just because they'd be closer together, doesn't necessarily mean the image width would be harmed either. You may like the perspective. If not, leave them where they are. Just be mindful not to have adjacent obstructions in the immediate vicinity even with, or in front of them. This causes VER (very early reflections) and other diffractive issues, which may or may not be a problem.

Experiment, generally speakers perform best out in the open, away from elements that diffract, reflect, or otherwise affect the sound-field.


Have fun and experiment!


I moved the L/R in as FOH suggested. Audio stage is greatly improved with 2 channel audio voices emanating from the center.

Awesome,....I'm glad you like it.

A couple additional tips, I would experiment with a slight toe in, or pointing the L&R mains just a little toward the center. Don't move them from where they are, simply twist them slightly, so that they point inward a little bit. Typically, this gives the presentation more "air" (10-15khz), and also allows slightly better vocal/dialog intelligibility for two reasons. The increased 10khz and above, is due to the fact that typical loudspeakers "beam" their HF content at the highest frequencies. These frequencies add a wonderful measure of sparkle or air, and without them, the presentation is somewhat subdued. Also, the designers generally design the speaker to be listened to directly on axis, so the upper limit of the mid-woofer is also best experienced directly on axis, because it too "beams", or becomes more directional at it's upper range of response.

So if you angle them inward slightly, you can hear the response curve that the designer intended, and more of what the engineer of the recording intended as well. An added benefit of the inward angle, is less energy is directed to the adjacent sidewall boundaries, so less destructive acoustic interaction.

So all in all, just a little tweak here and there, can make all the difference in imaging and frequency response,... regardless of system size or complexity.

Thanks and good luck


btw; Next, you can concentrate on the center channel, and getting it up on top of the shelf,...and in front of the TV, get it more in line with the others and allow it to breathe naturally.

Wow, I've never seen an equipment rack between the listener, and the speakers like that....how does it sound? Which speakers are you using?

I did have on top in front of the TV before.

This is with my 301's as my L/R.


After reading a post stating that the L/R/C should be better acoustically matched, I retired the 301's and moved the surrounds up front. Don't laugh , but they are Radio Shack Optimus and do the job. All speakers levels are at 0 now. I had the surrounds at 5/10 before.

Been looking at the others speakers and i feel rather inferior but i will post the speakers i built for my 18th birthday, the vinyl is coming off so im going to get them professionally painted.

I just bought these from an older lady off craig's list. I don't believe they been used much. Paid $400. I was going to use them for computer speakers now that my klipsch 5.1 system died or as a budget HT setup.

studiomonitor 350 pair

bp 1.2x pair

clr 2002 center channel

powerfield supercube ii

I'm thinking about adding floor standing front channel and using an onkyo tx-nr809 I found a deal on if I use them for HT. Any suggestions?

My new setup is a Yamaha RX-V871 driving a pair of Polk Audio RTi A3's on VTI UF series stands. Behind the purple sheet on the left is a Klipsch SW-350.
The TV is a Philips 40PFL5505D/F7

3 Seaton Catalyst 12C's for LCR
2 Seaton SubMersive's
4 Klipsch speakers (not sure of model) for side/rear surrounds

Movies & music with this current set-up are an incredible experience time after time, however my ultimate goal is to be fully powered by Seaton, so 4 Seaton Sparks to replace the Klipschs are next in line when funds allow, and then finally an Anthem D2v to replace my Denon 2809 as the final piece of my HT jigsaw!

Oh yes, almost forgot, will upgrade the SubMersives to the HP versions too once avaliable to overseas customers (No it never ends does it!)
