Thanks. Worked just fine.
Peace.

Does anyone know if the c25 would be a good match for the older rs525 towers?


rs525 specs:
Frequency Response: 52Hz - 25kHz (+/-3dB)
Crossover Frequency(ies): 2.8kHz
Sensitivity: 92dB (2.83 volts/1 meter)
Nominal Impedance: Compatible with 8 ohms
Power Rating: 20 - 150 watts/RMS into 6 ohms
Woofer: 6.5" IMG
Tweeter: 1" ferrofluid cooled polycell

Primus C25 is specifically designed for primus series of speakers. Even though, I have no experience with RS525s, but I doubt that C25 will be a good match for them.

Perhaps you should call or email Infinity, they might be able to suggest something.

Hello people hope all is well. I have a question regarding the Primus 150's. I have the 360's up front matched with the C25 center and the 150's taking up rear duty comprising a 5.1. I want to put the 150's up on my wall as rear speakers are supposed to be. Do any of you have a similiar set-up? If so, how did you mount the 150's? I also want to be able to angle them. Anybody know of any brackets I could buy at a reasonable cost? How high should the 150's be placed? I was guessing say 5'-6' off of the floor. Is that a good idea? Please help if you can. Thanks and have a great day.

Cheers,

Phil

I have exact same setup with 150s for surround. I am using these speaker stands (in case interested)

http://www.amazon.com/Sanus-EF-SATB-...799932?ie=UTF8

From floor to the top of 150s, is about 4' 8" in my setup. General guideline for surround speakers are placing them above the ear level, so anything between 1-2' above ear level should be fine. Try out different hights and see which one sounds better to you.

Count me in as a huge Primus believer. My 360s with Onkyo 703 just ROCK the house with beautiful music. Just added an SVS 25-31pci and the music is just HEAVENLY. I am falling in love with music all over again!!!

Hey audiofreak,

This is waht I used to mount my 150's on the wall. I bought them at futureshop (since i live in canada).

http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pro...84&catid=10014

Most wall mounts that I saw were flimsy could only hold 10 pound speakers. these are heavy duty & can hold up to 55 pound speakers.
post #129 of 3898
Question to you Infinity 150 owners. If you buy 5-7 speakers from circuit city online, can you actually get 5-7 $20 rebates? Sometimes rebates are limited to 1 per customer.

Anybody know for sure?

vann's has a huge deal on primus speakers. no tax, no shipping. I just picked this set up:

Yeah those are nice BUT I am in US. Need to find something here and more affordable. But, thanks for your help.

Tried to order the Infinity Primus 150s from cc website today, but order would not go through. Called their 800 number and was told the warehouse doesn't have anymore and that I could not order them because they are on closeout and will not get anymore in. The only way to get them is if a cc store still has some. Of course, no store within 100 miles of me had any.

Anyone else have the same experience.

They are nice, but kind of expensive for $30-40 speakers.

If you don't need to angle them, they mount flush using wall anchors and screws for the keyhole slots. I have mine about 5 ft. up on the side walls, and some 140's in back mounted the same way. I also tried them on stands, but like the sound better up higher than the stands.

The package prices are quite good - did you go with the 7.1 or 5.1 setup?
post #137 of 3898
5.1. I ordered at like 3 pm on tuesday, and had the tracking numbers by 5 that night. +1 for vann's.

Hey Axs,
You are right but, they are cheaper & more stable than speaker stands that i was looking at. Also. most stands were only 36" high. I needed the speakers to be higher than that. I did buy them before i started to read this forum.

I tried to order the 150's on tuesday but the website cleared my cart when I tried to order two. I called the 800 number and was told they were on closeout and they only had 1 left.

The wed site said none were in the local 3 stores But

I happened in my local CC today, In the speaker area they had a set so I asked them if they had any in an unopen boxes. I lucked out and walked out with what they said were the last two.

So I would check the local stores in person or at the very least over the phone

Got mine in CC (Chicago) last two days but they said they can't match the online price with the mail in rebate instead they offered me for a pair $82.++ so I grabbed it coz its $6 dollar difference compared online. And they have 4 spkrs left. When my onkyo 504 arrived next week and if sounds good I'll will get the last pair.
post #141 of 3898
OK Primus owners, thought I would mix it up a little and see what kind of music you guys listen to. I'm mostly an acoustic rock type, like clear and crisp sound.

Tonight the wife dropped in a Black Eyed Peas CD and said "let's see how this sounds on those speakers of yours" and turned up the volume. Simply incredible. For movies I know I needed that PS 12 sub - now I know what it can really do for music.
post #142 of 3898
Just to let anyone searching for primus know. If you visit CC in person they still may have the display models in stock sitting on a shelf somewhere. In my case they did and I got 150's for rear surrounds @ 30 a pair. A few dings on them but they sound good.
Its probably already stated here somewhere but their moving to Kef, Boston and Dennon lineups.
post #143 of 3898
Even though I'd ordered onkyo 504. I still have a second thought for pioneer 816 to the drive the primus.And if pio 816 used for primus 150.It would be ok even if pio 816 has 110 watts?

It will be fine. Just don't crank up the volume all the way up (max).

Great point BUT my couch is against the back wall so I really need to angle the 150's inward. Stands wont work becuase I want to be able to place them higher than what most stands go. Kinda looks like I may just have to put them on the back-wall and fire them straight out into my room. I may experiment w/it and see how it sounds.

For 5.1 setup, generally speakers are placed on the side with 90-110 degree angle in to main listening position.

If possible, use some make shift arrangement to place speakers at different height and see what works best for you. As I mentioned earlier, I use a stand which is about 43-44" (I think it can be increased another 2-3", if needed) and 150s are placed on top of it, so total height from floor to top of the speaker is about 56-57". If that works for you, that stand was something like $45, when I got it.

Putting these on back wall perhaps not a good idea for 5.1 setup, but if it works for you nothing wrong with that too.

Yeah I will experiment and see what I can come up with. Right now am so busy w/packaging gear because sold some of my stuff. Still got more to sell and trying to get it ready for shipping as well.
post #148 of 3898
I've had this Primus set up for about year in Cherry I purchased from Circuity City Powering it with an Onkyo 603 Rcvr. It does well enough for my viewing and listening needs. Nothing extraordinary by any means but is plenty enjoyable


post #149 of 3898
I have been using 150s up front, along with the C25 center. Overall, I have been very happy with this setup. However, I always felt the center channel could be a little better. When I bought a new sub (Infinity SW-12), I really did not need my Mirage FRX-S8 (8" sub) anymore.

Rather than sell the Mirage, I tried using the center channel pre-out, and directing it to the 8" sub. I found this added that little bit of extension I thought the C25 was lacking. I am fortunate with the ayout of my viewing room, because I can put the 8" sub directly under the C25, which sits directly under the screen. This gives me a 3-way center - and really improved the lower frequency dialogue. You really need a musical sub to do this - boomy ones would not work.

Just a tip if anyone else feels the same way about the C25. I bought my mirage sub years ago for $40, and I still see them & it's energy 8" counterpart sell on ebay for < $100. They are quite good subs, but don't have enough output to really amaze in low freq LFE.

I have heard this a lot about the C25 and I love my 150's. My solution was to go with the Beta C360 as my center. My plan is to get Beta 40's or 50's to replace the 150's up front and use the 150's as surrounds.

Any suggestions or comments about my planned solution or other folks' experience with the Primus line matched to the Beta centers (C250 or C360)?

Thanks.
