If I were mounting two rear surrounds, I would probably do this (based on what I see in the photos).

Then put the right rear surround symmetrically on the other side. But you could also mount them higher than the Camaro sign. But in your room, it looks like you could get away with pretty close to ear height.

That's the same exact setup I'm gonna have minus the subs.. I have a 12" Klipsch and a 15" Jamo.. I can't use both.. The Klipsch is downfiring and has nice tight bass.. The Jamo is a monster but more boomy..side firing..

That's exactly what I was thinking.. Picked up 100' of 14 gauge speaker wire.. Gotta put my emotiva banana plug on them

If your looking to work out your subs go get the movie The Last Airbender

I was thinking more like 30 degrees off center from the fly swatter.

Completely agree with shadow jack. Great room set up. I'm totally jealous. My couch is up against the back wall. :-(

Bajawaverunner has them listed for $2000! Clearly I'm in the wrong profession!

Hi guys,

I noticed on Craigslist someone is selling a pair of BP8s and C1 for $250. They seem like a solid speaker, and I have been looking to upgrade my old Infinity Reference 2000.4. Let me know what a fair price for them is, these are what looks to be in good shape, just need a little feedback! Thanks,

Not if you win 30% off in a raffle

I've had a pair of BP8s for +10 years and they still sound great. Added 4 more to run 7.1 full range. The price would be based on condition. If they sound good and don't have obvious damage, get them. You can always replace drivers as needed. Not familiar with the C1.

[quote=JAMES MCHUGHES;21779657]32 is even better [

My record was 28, I'm down to only 18 now. I moved my 7001's to the rear and sold my bp20's. Put Carver ALIII's up front. The ribbon extends 6' up. I had 450's as heights but with 6' speakers, heights were no longer necessary. To Be honest, in my room when I had the 7001's up front I did not think the height channels added that much to the effect. May be because I only have 7.5' ceilings in my basement.

Let's scratch that word out of our dictionaries!

The reminds me of a previous employer that kept sending me full paychecks for months after I left them. Every time i received a check, I called them to remind that they need to take me off their payroll, and asked for an address to send the checks back (for which someone was supposed to get back to me, and no one ever did).

Finally, I called and said "the total amount of these checks is now getting too tempting. If I receive another one, I am going to deposit them all " and then they stopped coming.

Office space situations do happen in real life

You may want to move your 7006s back a bit. They should be around 90 to 120 degrees - basically directly off the sides of the couch or a little back. That may however not be possible in your room.

I have similar space issues with my room. My side surrounds (BP2000s) are just back and to the sides of the couch positioned so they are pointing directly at the ears of the sweet seat. Not in the corner of the room yet only about two feet out from the corner. My rears are direct radiating inwalls about 5 ft apart and 3-4 feet behind the sweet seat. Not optimum yet sounds great and as they say, we all have our space limitations and compromises.

Cheers

Look'n good however. :-)

Huh, I thought he was running the 7006s as wides. If running as surrounds, I agree with KJSmitty, get them to the sides or behind you. If wides, they look to be about right.

Like KJSmitty mentioned, this is about as optimum as I can get without removing some furniture and remodelling the walls. The right side is a doorway and hence I have to have the 7006 further up a bit. But trust me, the Def tech has awesome imaging and it sound just as great because they are angled towards the prime listening area.

I'll throw up some pics after I get the def techs set up and then you guys can give me some opinions.. Won't be til later tonight..

I just picked up a pair of PM1000s for front heights yesterday as my BP2x, being bipolar, do not seem to work well for that duty. I was debating between the PM1000s and the sm350s which I believed matched my 7004 mains better but went with the 1000s since they seem much easier to mount (using Hercules hooks).

Do you find they blend well with the Bp line?
