They have it here in Austin, too. The sales of the Infinities have been more frequent here in TX. I haven't seen as many in California. They're on sale in the Dallas area much more frequently (almost everyweekend).

If it weren't such a pain to lift my DLP, I would get a P362 as a center, too.

I added a pair of 162's to complete 7.1 setup but these came with black grill. My other Primus's from last year all have silver grills. If someone want to do an exchange of their silver grills for my black ones, let me know. Thanks.

I need a center channel to go with the P362Bs. Im not so happy with the big/bulky Infinity centers. Any recommendation of JBLs / Klipsch?

JBL is also made by Harman and hence i wonder if they will match.

One user said his C2 matched pretty well but that thing is ugly too.

Do you have room to use a bookshelf speaker as a center? If so, get a primus 162 or similar.

I was the one who used the C2 center from Klipsch, but that was very bulky as well. I also had the chance to use my dads JBL N series center channel, but they didnt seem to match tremble wise.

Some slim center that you might look into is the Def. Tech center...forgot which model it was, but it was very slim.

How does the p162 compare to the pc350 as a center?

I'll do it! I have the exact opposite dilemma that you have. Black grills on my 362s and pc350 and silver on my 162s. PM me.

has anyone ever compared the PS212 to the CSW10?

Thanks
post #1122 of 3900
I just picked up the Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K A/V Reciever yesterday and was wondering if anyone was familiar with this unit. Im sorta novice to how all the freq. cutoffs etc mean. I get fustrated when I look at all these settings and all I want is my Home Theater to sound good. I have the Infinity Primus P362 (x2), PC350 (Center), and the P142 (Bookshelfx2) speakers for my setup. My Subwoofer is the Klipsch Sub-10. Does anyone know what the freq is on these P362's? What setting on the subwoofer should I set? 80hz? 100Hz? Also on these Reciever you cant set the speakers to large or small, and set the sub to Yes or Plus. I know this is alot to ask but Im just not quiet sure what Im supposes to set these at. Thanks for all the info.

Anything else you can think of will help.

Just picked up a pair of 362 at my local Fry's (San Diego) for $99/each using a raincheck issued three weeks ago. They sound great and the bass is more than adequate for my taste. I combine those with my 20+ year-old Velodyne sub and the blend is perfect. I highly recommend those 362's , especially if you can get them for $99 a piece.

Get a third P362. Use it as a center. You will love the integrated sound.

I got my 3rd P362 from the San Marcos Fry's (no pair needed to buy).

Thanks for the compliment!

I read this article and found out a conventional Center Channel speaker is a compromise due to space issues:

So, it was a no brainer to pay the same price for three P362's then one JBL ES25 Center Channel alone *and* get a more integrated soundstage!

If you don't mind me asking, what is it about the center channel you dont like? Is it the size? I have the PC350 with my P362's and they blend well together. It's also not recommended to change manf. on speaker within a home theater. If you do the sound may not be equal. Totally up to you though. Just wondering.

Are the p362's always on sale? Or do I have to wait to see it in the ad? I've been waiting for them to hit $99 again since about 4 weeks ago when they were last on sale.

I just picked up a pair of 362's and am wondering if there is a way to purchase black grills for them vs. the silver they came in?

Sorry to hear you guys have no Fry's near by!

My problem is that we have too many Fry's near by! We have about 4 Fry's within 20 minutes drive from each other! I'm in the silicon valley of-course.

I picked up a pair of P362 a couple of months ago for $99 each speaker. I thought they sounded pretty good until my co-worker gave me a set of Pinnacle Gold Classic Reference towers for FREE! These Pinnacles were about 8 - 10 years old, but kick the crap out of the Primus as far as sound quality goes.

Contact AudioVideoSource on eBay. I think they can order for you, $50/pair shipped.

I have a question for you all. So I have the P362's which are rated at 38Hz - 20,000Hz and what I'm trying to figure out is what should I set my Sub crossover at? People in here are talking about fluent sound between the sub and the front speakers, basically making them sound uniform, no drop outs etc. My Subwoofer (Klipsch Sub-10) goes down to 40Hz on the crossover, what do you think would be the best setting? 40Hz or 60Hz? I got the link to that website, but it didn't really explain that much. Maybe I missed something but I just want my HT to sound good!


Reciever - Pioneer Elite VSX-01TXH
Fronts - Infinity Primus P362's
Center - Infinity Primus PC350
Rears - Infinity Primus P142's

One other question, is there some sort of meter or gadget out there that will tune a HT system to sound all uniform?

I know there probably is but does anyone have any good suggestions?

Set your front speakers to SMALL. Yes... they may be able to go down to 38Hz but your subwoofer will do a much better job of covering the low end.

Setting the P362s to SMALL gives it more headroom to reproduce mid and high frequencies properly. Low frequencies tax the amplifier more.

I believe most people crossover their speakers at 80Hz. You can then set your subwoofer to 80Hz or 90Hz. This minimizes double bass (bass from your front speakers + bass from your subwoofer).

Could you please elaborate on how the Pinnacles are superior to the 362. I do not doubt your assessment but would like to hear more details than "kicking the crap out of the Primus". Inquisitive mind would love to learn from the sound expert!
