Got my 163's today. Bigger than I anticipated. Looks good though. Trying to figure out if they are going to be able to handle front mains properly.

I blew my tweeter in my Primus center channel (don't know model). Where can I buy replacement speakers?
post #3213 of 3900
I was able to get a replacement tweeter for a Primus 360 tower direct from Harmon (Infinity) at about $24.

Super easy replacement

I am really enjoying the P163's and the PC351 I got. I still want to get p363's and move the P163's to surrounds.

I too have the P163's, PC351 and P162's for the Surround and am continuing to really enjoy these speakers!

Purchased a pair of P362s off Craigslist with a blown tweeter. Looks like part number is 85DA20AJ-DT05-E.

Anybody have a spare tweeter that they'd be willing to sell or know where I can get one for less than $30? Harman is out of stock and only alternative I can see is buying single P153 and replacing tweeter that way..

Thanks!

Just got off the infinity website and they have raised the price of the 363's. They use to be 199 and now they are 329.

Why is it so hard to find a PC351 up here in Canada? O.o I'm just missing that center to finish off my 5.1 setup!
post #3221 of 3900
These speakers seem to be hard to find everywhere. I am having difficulty finding the primus 363's.

Given that the P362 is identical except for color and model, have you considered that?
post #3223 of 3900
Yes I have. I just don't like the looks of the 362. Maybe I should look at the 360.

Any suggestions on a wall mount for the P153?

Seems like it's pretty heavy at 13 lbs and I don't think attatching it directly to the wall will be a good way to put it. Need to rotate, angle down slightly...

Look at this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details
post #3226 of 3900
thanks a lot. I was looking into those. Do i have to screw the speaker to the base or will the clamp, alone do the trick?

I'd like to avoid drilling holes in the new speakers if possible.

Yeah, so the 153s got delivered today. I guess i should have paid more attention to the specs. These things are really massive and my wife doesn't want them mounted on the wall in our living room. I'll have to probably give them to my brother or something. no point returning them, they are more than worth the low price i paid on newegg.

lesson learned... set up your home theatre before you get married.

Any recommendations for something smaller? the 143s don't seem like they'll be any better (and they are more expensive). I was looking at the TSS-SAT800. Any other recommendations are welcome. Thanks.

They look smaller the higher you mount them. Just like the moon!

13lbs feels heavy to the hand, but your wall can handle it. Put in a couple of dry wall anchors (like these http://amzn.com/B0051IALCI) and you could hold 5x the weight (or get a screw into a stud). Rotating and angling is just making some calculations. I mounted my 153's in a corner last weekend and went though the same thing. I attached a terrible drawing of how I mounted mine. I wanted them to fire directly out of the corner, so I made 45 degree angle cuts on a 7 inch piece of wood and mounted the speakers flush with that piece. By bringing the screws out, I could adjust the angle that the speaker fires. This was in the top corner of the wall, so they were pretty much flush with the ceiling also.
Edit: Now I'm adding pictures.


While I had the saw out, I cut up an Ikea shelving system to hold the TV over the massive PC351. Wife almost killed me when I brought that thing out, this seemed to placate her.

I kept showing my wife pictures from the dedicated home theater forum. When all I wanted to do was put some 163's on my walls, all of a sudden it seemed perfectly reasonable!

I am surprised by the price increase of the primus line. I got my 163's for $85 per speaker two weeks ago. Now the cheapest I can find them is $140. Does not look good for me finding the p363's for less than retail.

Crutchfield has them in stock at $85 right now.

The prices seem to be cyclical. I have bought most of mine from Electronics Expo, and they have great prices when the speakers are in stock. Over the past year, I've seen them go in and out of stock quite a few times. When I was looking to complete my set, I bookmarked Crutchfield and Electronic Expo's Primus pages, and check them once a day until I saw the prices I wanted.
post #3232 of 3900
I see the 162 at those prices but it says $140 for the 163.

Ah, fair point.

Anyone know if Infinity is going to come up with new series for this spring? Like P364s? haha.

Not likely. There is nothing mentioned on the Infinity website and the current top line Primus is the P363. Strangely enough, there is a picture of the Cascade Nine which has been discontinued, as well as the Prelude 40, another line that has probably also been discontinued (although you might be able to get one @$6K).

Hi Guys,
Looking for some advice, I tried it as a separate thread but didnt get any response so I thought I should try here.

I have Infinity interludes in front IL10 and IL25C for center and a Velodyne DPS-12 Sub-woofer, I was wondering if Infinity Primus p143 will be a good match for the surround. Looking for small speakers to go with the front speakers. Any one running this type of setup with success or have opinion?

Currently I am using Acoustic Research AR215PS speakers for surround.

I see no issues. They will probably be a better match than my Interlude IL-60s, IL-36 fronts and Cambridge Soundworks The Surround 5.1 side surrounds. I found my rear surrounds beside the street that someone had put out as trash. If you manage your Large /Small and crossover frequencies the 143s will work fine. Got my daughter a pair of 142s a few years ago to use with her IPod. Right out of the box I was amazed. I don't think matching surrounds to fronts is a real high priority in most households.
post #3239 of 3900
Thanks GLBright, Yes I have denon 1712 which has separate crossover for center, front and surround. I was just not sure how MMD tweeter will play along with CMMD ones on interludes.

Hey guys, looking at upgrading my old Infinity Reference towers to some of these Infinity Primus, likely the P362. I am not against buying used, and wouldn't mind saving myself a little money. I plan on keeping an eye out for any of these on ebay/craigslist, what would you consider a fair price for the P362 used?
