You may want to try 4, 8040s. I will tell you though, my room was 12.5x21 and I had sound bouncing everywhere. You may need to look into some sound control at some point. I just think the 1000s are a better woofer the 3.5 inch woofer in the 8040 aren't close to the same size as the 1000s. There are trade offs no matter what you do, you just need to decide. You might just look for some used BP1.2Xs to go with the 1000s up front or trade the 1000s for some SM350s that can be found dirt cheap. There are so many options for you. If you want to make the wife happy with cost I would do the SM350s with a 2002 center and the 1.2Xs. You will get great sound and it should be less money. The upgrade bug never stops though so be careful.



I just checked, New Egg has the SM350s for $250 a pair, free shipping. Unless your space limits you I would put them above the 1000s.

 



Chet at Def Tech suggested going with 4 SR8040BP's as surrounds and rears as his first choice, 2 SR8040BPs as surrounds with 2 PM 1000's as rears as his second choice, then 4 PM 1000's as surrounds and rear as his third choice. I am leaning towards the 4 8040BP's and am now entertaining doing 3 PC2000's across the front as L/C/R in lieu of 2 PM 1000's and a PC 2000. I am wall mounting all my speakers so cabinet space is not a problem. I just need to figure out how to vertically mount the Pro 2000. There have been a few people on the 600/800/1000 thread that have done just that and stated they loved it.

The upgrade bug is BAD right now....the nice thing is I have not bought a single thing yet. I started with PM 800's all the way around and now......well, you know...

Sounds like a good plan. I would also look at the new SM45s for fronts. I don't know if they can be wall mounted though. I have the SM65s in front and run them as a phantom center. I prefer that sound to a CC. I even tried moving by BP2006s in the room and used one SM65 as a center but just don't like it. The SM65s image so well it sounds more like a wall of sound and you can't pinpoint the center, but it pans excellently.

I am on my phone....I hope the link worked out. If not just Google search home theater geeks 177. Absolutely fantastic episode on room treatments. I followed most of the advice and the results are stunning. Made panels with oc 705 equivalent and diffusers from auralex and achieved much at a fraction of retail. It does take quite some time in diy work and planning but it is well worth it. Many thanks to Scott Wilkinson and anthony grimani. Another person to Google that I have learned a tremendous amount from his writings is Ethan winer. I basically applied Ethan's thoughts on bass trapping and Anthony grimanis layout ideas with a diy budget and went to work. The results of properly treating my room have had more impact than almost any other piece of equipment I have put in my room. Much better imaging, tighter bass, much more clarity, and much better defined surround sound.

Cool Yosh, any pics? I just have some tritraps right now with by BP7000SC. I really need something for the sides.

Sorry, I have never tried putting pics on the forum. I guess I need to give it a try. My panels are mostly 2" Knauf ecose 6 pcf insulation board (equivalent to OC 705). My bass traps are either 4" Rockwool and 2" OC 703 FRK glued together with loctite spray (6" total) or 2 2" Knauf 6 pcf ecose boards together with loctite (4" total). For the wall panels I used cheap 1" x 2" furring strip reinforced with metal L brackets in the corners for frames. I covered with a black inexpensive fabric from JoAnne fabric and attached with staples. I tried to straddle every corner/ceiling junction I could with a 6" thick 2' x 2' bass trap. I also used 3 4" bass traps mounted so there is a 4" air gap behind them on the back wall. These are 2' x 4'. I made a total of 9 bass traps. I also have about 11 total 2" 2' x 4' absorber panels for the mid/high frequencies evenly spaced out on the side walls with a bit of emphasis on the early reflection points of the bp7000's. I have auralex diffusers mounted in between by absorber panels and also a few diffusers on the back wall. I have to say the weak point of my setup are the inexpensive auralex diffuser panels I chose. I did not have the budget or time to diy my own diffuser panels or buy better quality retail diffuser panels - this will have to be down the road. Keep in mind that my room is about 25' long and 15' wide with over 9' ceilings. It is also in a basement and is solid concrete behind thick pine paneling.

I have to say I would also like to make even more bass traps but with bi-polar speakers I am hesitant to over-treat the front wall behind the main speakers as the sound is very nice right now. My bass is much better, but it seems to get even tighter and cleaner with each bass trap I add. I could also invest in an omnimic to do some measurements, but I don't have access to a laptop for that (we have a billion desktops and Ipads floating around the house but no laptop!). I have been depending on my ears for final judgements which honestly seems to be working pretty well.

Again, I used a mixture of advice from Ethan Winer's websites and Anthony Girmani's "Home Theater Geeks Episode 177". I did a rough calculation and would say I have covered about 17% of the side and rear walls with absorption and roughly 10-13% with diffusion. I have concrete floors covered with thick 8 pound padding and carpet as well. I have left the ceiling un-treated so far mainly because of aesthetics.

Yosh, thank you for encouraging all of us fellow Forum members to think about the room as a component of the system.
A high-end friend of mine used to say "Anyone who pays more than two grand for a pair of speakers, but isn't willing to address the room and the system's power, is just wasting his money." I would only add that experimenting with moving your speakers, and / or your listening position, can also pay huge dividends. Best, Joe

However, my father has a DT SC2000 in his other home in the family room. Maybe a 16x19 room. I cannot believe the output coming from this little thing. And it gets such a bad rep. No one on the AVSforum can EVER admit anything other than ID brands are good subs.

Although it doesnt stretch down to the lowest of frequencies, the thing sounds absolutely excellent during movies for how tiny it is. Keep up the good work.

On another note, how much more output does the SC6000 have? I know the 14hz figure is wildly untrue from such small drivers, but Im expecting the -6dB point to be in the low 20s. This accurate Joe?
Hello TV Man, thank you for pointing out that some of the posters get engulfed by ID-brand fever. It's much easier for a manufacturer to make a large box that gives loads of bass output, for as one engineer told me, "Technically, a big box equals free amplification". Creating a small, cosmetically attractive, easily concealed box that has legit low-end beef is a true engineering challenge.
This is also a chance for me to praise poster RD Clark, who approaches subwoofer advice with a balanced view to both sheer output and cabinet cosmetics.
I don't work for DT anymore (I started a sales company in the fall) but in my view, of the loudspeaker vendors who also make subwoofers, DT is doing a really good job.
I honestly am not sure of what the 6 dB down point is for the SC-6000, but for a grand, I think it's an excellent combination of a compact, good looking sub with very healthy output - plus adjustments on the remote that help you blend it with your speakers. Chet, Adam, or TJ may have more data for you (info@definitivetech.com).
BTW I don't mean to suggest that those who buy a big ID sub, and get the most deep bass output for the money are making a mistake, either. There's nothing wrong with that approach. Good bass rocks - I love it! It's just that some folks like beef, others fish, others vegetarian... and it's good to acknowledge that another's requirements and choices are also valid.
I hope this helps - best, Joe

Has anyone made the jump from Audyssey XT to XT32 with their bipoles? At first I wasn't much for Audyssey, but now that my room is more a little more treated, it sounds great with it. The bass is way better and the mids on the BP7000SC improved. Everything sounds much more seamless between the front and surrounds. I can't wait to upgrade to XT32 and DSX/Neo X smile.gif I figured with the additional filters the mids should improved even more. I noticed that you just have to be very careful and set the bass level properly on the tower before running Audyseey, however, I also seem to have issues with blending the mids between the woofer. Seems like the mids cut off before 100hz and the subs don't really pick up till 80Hz so there is a gap and I can't fill 100%. I might try to plugin my minidsp between my prepro and amp to bump up the lower midrange then try to run Audyssey again. Just still learning how to use the minidsp...

I did look into the SM45-65 series but they can not be wall mounted. I bet they sound fantastic.

Good stuff Yosh! Thanks for sharing this information and yes the YouTube was very informative. I shot you a PM asking some specifics if you don't mind. Thanks again!

I upgraded my Onkyo receiver this year. My old receiver had Audyssey XT. My new receiver has XT32.

XT32 does improve the sound of my 7001s considerably, especially the bass.

However, I'm using the LFE inputs on the towers. I feel that I get better control over the subs that way.

I also have a SC Reference sub.

The receiver has two sub outs, although they are providing the same signal.

I use a "Y" splitter from one of the sub outs and connect those to the towers. The other sub out goes to my sub.

I set all of the subs to 75db which is required by Audyssey XT32. That way I know that the sub levels are balanced.

I then set the crossover in the receiver at 80hz for the towers and the center (CLR3000).

I just use the speaker inputs for the center.

I don't have any frequency gap that I'm aware of.

It sounds very good to me.

Even if you don't want to run the towers with the LFE inputs, you can wire it that way to set the sub levels like I do with Audyseey, and then
leaving the gain control alone, just go back to using the speaker level inputs. That way you know that the sub levels are correct.

I have been thinking of replacing my 9 year old Polk RTi6's and I had been looking at some RTi8 towers from Polks ebay store, mainly because of price.

This past weekend I decided to stop at Best Buy just to see what they had and while there I had the chance to demo
some Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000's, and liked what I heard, though they did seem a little bright to me and asked
to hear the Studio Monitor 55's and was very impressed and now I am considering switching my RTi6's to the SM55's instead
Polk towers.

The sales person did say that once the speakers break in, about 15-20 hrs the sound would be even better.

I would be powering these with an Onkyo 809 receiver and my room is roughly 14x20 with 10ft ceilings. Will these speakers
be enough for my room or would I need to go larger?

Thanks, but it is hard enough to convince my wife on the RTi8s at 41 inches high much less the RTi12 at almost a foot taller:)

Did BB have the SM 65 on site? If so, give them a try. They will be able to fill your room nicely. Do you need a new center too? The 8040/8060/8080 are solid centers. You could add the SR8040BP as surrounds too for the ultimate HT. smile.gif

I did listen to the SM65's and they were very nice, but a little more than I wanted to spend. I did have a chance to talk to someone at Def Tech and he said the 55's would work well and if price and size are a problem the PC2000 center would
work well with them.

I demoed the SM55s and SM65. It was hard to tell the difference at first, but I thought the 65's were better all the way around. I have them now and I am extremely pleased. I have played around with the position. They are not supposed to be the best in corners, but I have them about a foot from back and side and they fill my 12.5x21x9 room. I have to do that because of my 120" screen and the equipment room door, otherwise I would pull them further away from both.

I have an old pair of BP2006s the I keep hauling in from the family room because of the whole "there has got to be something better" obsession, but the 65s sound better. I even run them phantom center and the imaging is incredible. The sound just sounds like it's coming out of the screen, not a speaker directly in front. I would highly recommend them. I picked them up dirt cheap from Bajawaverunner on eBay. He sells factory refurbished stuff; I bought these and SR8080s and have had no problems.

I have 4 SR8080s paired with these and a SVS PB12NSD and I just keep grinning every time I demo something. The only thing I want to change, "right now" is getting some ULF Sub. My wife just looks at me like I am crazy. :-)

I am going to go with 4 8040's for surrounds and rears. I am glad you like 4 8080's. I was hoping 4 would not be overkill. I am going with the SVS PB 1000 because my room is not as big but the 12SND would be sweet to have.

Nice, where did you demo the SM65? I was only able to demo the SM45 and SM55 at Best Buy. I wish they had the SM65. I'm curious if the mids where a little more forward. I'm hopeing Def Tech releases new non powered towers. I don't want to deal with stands and don't need the extra woofers at this point. Also looking at Revel F206's. I demoed them and they sounded great with all different types of music, but it's hard to beat the sound and price of a Def Tech smile.gif Before I replace my BP7000SC's I'll wait till I get some more room treatments and XT32. They are great for games and movies, but lack a little with music that has lower mid range frown.gif Anyone with a mic and a computer can see that.. I tried the minidsp last night and got the sound pretty flat, but honestly I find it takes way to long and the auto calibration of XT works as good if not better. I also don't want another device inline all the time.

My BB Magnolia store had all 3 of them. I had Boston Acoustics VS224s wall mounted and also tried Atlantic Technology FS3200. I am putting up with the speaker stands. Well actually one of them is on my subwoofer.

Hello Tru, some of the better Magnolia locations stock the 65's, but not all. I think it's a great speaker though. DT may re-offer new non powered towers at some point, but there is nothing coming in the short run. Best, Joe

Hey guys new the thread but have a question. Would Pro Cinema 1000's L/R and a Pro Cinema 1000 Center be adequate for a 16 x 15 x 12 room? I currently have older Klipsch L / R and a mismatched cheap Polk Center. I know the Def Tech's would be better than what I have upstairs currently, but would it be adequate as a long term solution?

I will be running PM 1000's as my left and right with a Pro 2000 center. Do not get the PC1000 as the PC 2000 is a much better upgrade for your room. Def Tech has stated the PC 2000 is one of their best overall speakers in that price range. I will also be using SR8040PB's as surrounds and rears with a Rythmic LV12R sub. My room is 12x18x8.

The SM 45-65 speakers for fronts would be a step up from the PM1000's. Depends on your price range. Lots of good things being said about the SM series. I would check them out as well in the Best Buy Magnolia section.

Here is the thread on the PM600/800/1000 with tons of great info.....

The PM 1000 is $219 and the SM45 is $199 MSRP on Def Tech's website. Both can be used as bookshelf with the PM 1000 being abkle to be mounted on the wall as well.

No base radiator with the SM 45's in the specs.

Check newegg.com. Sometimes they have the SM350 for about that much and the SM450 for a little more than $200 and that's per pair!
