Anybody know anyone looking to get rid of 450 surround sound stands? I need two more stands for 7.1 system.

Thanks

850 + cost of shipping. I always loved the wood look of the 370s over the glossy 450s

I've had both and the 450s sound better.

I just wish my 450s could be in the wood finish instead of the glossy one.

What are you using now Jim?
post #757 of 865
I'm using 8200 LRs in 6 position with the 8200C for center channel duty.

It's the original ones that were "no compromise."

I had gone through several other speakers including 370 and 450 series which I thought were pretty good. Once I moved into a larger house, they just didn't fill up the room. I wanted a set of speakers that I could buy and keep a very long time without any interest in upgrading. That's when I got the 8200s. I've also been through several subs and currently have a Seaton Submersive HP. I have an itch that I should have gotten the dual front mount sub rather than dual opposed, but then there is a space issue.

Wait a second. You're saying that you own/use 3 pairs of 8200LRs and that 2 of those pairs are for surround duty only?

Yes...pure madness. lol that sounds like an awesome set up Jim! Currently planning a dedicated build and was going to go with 3 8200e for the fronts and maybe 6200s for surrounds. The alternative was to use 3 Tekton Pendragons for the front too if I can make space for them. All will be behind an AT screen.

Regarding your experiences with the 450s, what crossover settings did you use with them? It seems like a few guys here who have em used 110hz. Audyssey is setting the L/R to 110hz and my center to 80hz in my room. Not sure if it could be a placement issue.

Also wouldn't mind checking out those new HPAS speakers from Atlantic. Concept looks interesting
post #761 of 865
It's been a while since I used the 450s but I think I had them crossed over at 80hz.

Audyssey doesn't always get the crossovers right.

One suggestion someone made to me was to try different crossovers and just go with what sounds the best. Can't beat that logic but I found it hard to tell the difference.
post #762 of 865
The 450 series are THX certified so unless I'm mistaken that means that requires a spec of an 80 Hz crossover.

But what about in room response. I will take time later this weekend to actually measure my in room FR to see if audyssey is right or wrong. I just find it funny that it reports the center at being 80hz while the L/R at 110hz

Not at all! Whatever you can swing baby! But until your post I thought I was being extravagant with my Atlantic Technology 8200e LRC+SR with 1400 SR-z Heights & FS-3200s LR for Wides & Rear. Now you've got me thinking about speakers again. wink.gif

Stop bringing reality into the equation!
post #767 of 865
Just bought 3 8200e LR for behind my acoustically transparent screen and 4 Triad Inwall Silver4 surrounds from AVS.cool.gif Basement won't be done for about a month, but I couldn't resist ordering them already. Oh and if you are looking for AT speakers, give AVS a call. They have amazing pricing.

I have an Emotiva XPA-5 right now, but since I decided to go 7.1 I'll need to decide if I want to get an XPA-3 and have 1 unused channel or get an XPA-200, which has 50 less watts.confused.gif Also, I don't get why these speakers don't seem to be too popular on the forum. They look like quality speakers and are THX Ultra Certified. I know THX is a bit of a marketing tool, but it should convey atleast some standard of quality. I was looking at Triad Gold LCR's, but just couldn't justify the extra cost.

I've heard the Triad Gold LCRs in a treated room and was wowed by them! The original Gold LCR was THX rated and the new one blows the old out of the water!

Regarding your amp issue, I doubt the extra 50 watts will make an audible difference if you are really using all the power. 3db difference would require 400 watts instead!

If we keep posting maybe AT will get way more popular biggrin.gif


Jim,

Since you went from 450s to 8200s, could you explain the differences? Like mentioned earlier, I am using 450e's for my front stage and was seriously considering going for the 8200e's.

Keep in mind that my room size and distance from speaker(s) to primary listening position increased. It's very much like the difference between someone standing 4 feet in front of you talking versus that same person being across the room talking.

With proper amplification and a good preamp with everything properly setup, it's more like the person is in the room with you than listening to a recording.

I'd try to be sure that all amps have the same power rating and be from the same company.

Manufacturers have gotten so bad about power ratings that I wouldn't presume 200 watts from one company necessarily equals 200 watts from another company.
post #773 of 865
By the way, does anyone need an 8200 center channel?

I have an extra that's not being used.

Wonder how dual center channels would sound??????? biggrin.gif

Well....I got what had to be the world worst home theater demo when I drove to Atlanta to audition the 8200s. Ordered a used center channel from somebody else so I could hear it in my home. Liked it a lot and reordered it new along with the LRs. After using the original 8200C to demo, I put it in the upstairs room thinking that I'd eventually put it to use. It's still sitting up their and I kind of lost interest in setting up a dedicated home theater with front projection. I can see where having dual 8200 center channels would work well for a large front projection system.

I doubt I'll be using all of the power, but my rears are 7db less sensitive than my fronts, so I'll need to be pushing them harder than the fronts. I'm hoping the 8200e's sound as good as I think they will. I like that they have that switch to compensate for being behind an AT screen. I would think that audyssey would take care of that, but it's nice to have it there.

Hi,

How do you like the 4400 system?

Question to all experts,

My Home theater (under construction) is 11 x 22 x 8, and I am considering the following for a 7.1 system, mostly for movies:

- 4400 L, C, R
- IWTS-14SR as the sides (not enough room for on-wall speakers)
- AT 642 (or SVS or Velodyne)

questions
- what to pick for rear L/R considering the medium room size
- Is the 14SR sides sufficient?

thanks.

Do you like to listen loud? Also IMHO I feel that the ID subs will offer better value for you.

Actually not very loud, except a rare movie or two once in a while.
(not familiar with ID subs, but will look them up)

ID = Internet Direct like SVS PSA and HSU etc!

Hmm 11 x 22 seems to be a big room (compared to mine!) and I'm worried the 4400 might not cut it for you. I would say maybe push your budget up for a 6200 which uses 6.5 drivers over the 5.25 drivers that comes with the 4400s. But if you don't really listen loud you might be able to get away with the 4400s.

Also do you like the sound of Bipoles/Dipoles? That's something to consider before you purchase your surrounds!

The others will chime in soon on their thoughts.
