Why not match the fronts and go with the 1000's for the rear? Especially if you're planning on the 2000 center channel. JM .02

because i have a small room. the 800's are a better fit for the room as surrounds. also, surrounds aren't used as much as the fronts so i think the 800's will work nicely.

here is my room layout , my ceiling is about 7 1/2 feet tall:

Bar is going on one side, projector on the other, is this system going to do that room justice or do I look at other options (towers)???

That is going to rock!

Now that you guys know what I have, can you make any suggestions on placement for the front left and right speakers? The 4 surrounds are going to be mounted higher, closer to the ceiling, the center will be mounted below the projection screen, but the front left and right, I do not know where they should go.......Do I mount them on the side of the projection screen in the middle? Or do I mount them up in the corners on the wall that the screen is on?

Do not, under any circumstances, mount your mains up in the corner of your wall. They should be as near ear level as possible, and as near on the same plane as your center as possible.

I just got a set of ProCinema 600, one of the Magnolia stores in my are is closing and I got a good deal on some of their demo stuff. Now I'm waiting for my receiver to arrive (Onkyo TX-SR605) but meanwhile I'm collecting setup advice in this thread:

Thanks for any tips & tricks you may be able to provide.

I listened to procinema series in Magnolia and liked the sound of it. My room size is 20x14 . Do procinema 600 is enough for that room size ? kind of tight on my budget.
I've Onkyo 605 receiver and mostly watch movies.

Thats pushing it I think, at the very least you should upgrade the sub to the 800.

My first impression would be that they may be a little small, but this is my first experience with satellites (I'm picking up the 1000+ system tomorrow). My room is 15x10.5 with a listening/viewing distance of 6 feet.

I'm also driving them with a Rotel receiver so I wanted to make the most of the power I had available but maintain a small overall footprint.

Second that. Me thinks tweeters should be kept at ear level.

I'm thinking about getting a 5.1 system consisting of a prosub1000, 4 promonitor1000's and a center. The only center available anywhere near me is either the PC1000 or the smaller one. I want the 2000 but cannot find one near me or online. So would the Prosub1000, 4 promonitor 1000's, and a PC1000 be a fairly good system? I will be using it mainly for movies. room size is about 15x14ish
post #73 of 7193
i bought my 1000 l/r setup today! they sound really nice! i have them hooked up to an onkyo 605. i am looking forward to getting the rest of the speakers in the next week or so. i am watching star wars now and the sound effects are awesome. i am really liking the onkyo so far too.

Is BestBuy's website the only place you can find the Definitive Procinema 600 online? Their price seems a bit high, unless that's the price they sell it for at the stores.
post #75 of 7193
I don't think you can get any discounts on the PC600 unless you find some unauthorized dealers online. Your best bet right now would be to find a Magnolia store that's closing and you can get a good deal on the PC600 and maybe some other extras. That's what I did this past weekend, I got a discounted PC600 package (open box but it's in perfect condition) plus they gave me about 70 ft. of high quality 14 gauge speaker wire almost for free.

There is one other internet site which sell them for less, but I had a 12% off coupon and the assuredness of a B&M return policy swung me to BB even though it was still a little more costly.

Per my previous post #57

Abt.com. Much cheaper than any I could find, free shipping,no tax. 30 day money back guarantee.

Did you call them to get a better price than the $799 (for the 600's) listed on their site? Because at $799 + tax you can get it from local shops. Is ABT an authorized DefTech dealer?
post #80 of 7193
Sir Dracula,

I got the pro800 system(all 6 speakers) for around 800$, 600's would have been mid 600$ Again free shipping and no tax. Yes they are an authorized dealer per Def Tech Web Site.


Sorry, went back and looked at my numbers...Upper 600$ for 600's and upper 800$ for 800's. Still saved well over 100$ not incl. tax.
post #81 of 7193
I see, so they do discount over the phone .. tricky.
post #82 of 7193
Volume, likely. Most authorized internet sites will sell for less than msrp if you ask or press them. Call Robert at Abt and see. Tricky why?
post #83 of 7193
Well I've got the 4 1000's hooked up as well as the 2000C and 1000 sub. Have them running through the receiver and the LFE to the sub. I'm wondering, has anyone experimented with both, and what are your thoughts? I'm not sure why Def Tech recommends running through the sub except for a smoother roll off of the bottom end. My Def Tech dealer at the Sound Room in Vancouver told me to run them through my Rotel. So far so good, they sound incredible, and not even calibrated yet.

ive had my 1000 fronts for about 4 days now. i am loving em, can't wait to get the rest of the speakers. i can't decide if i should get the 1000 or 2000 center now. i was leaning towards the 2000, but the 1000 fits perfectly under my tv. i would have to place the 2000 on the middle shelf of my tv stand and it might effect the sound. what do you guys think i should do?

i cranked the speakers with gears of war today. they sounded so good. music is nice with these speakers too and the onkyo 605 works great with them.

I had a 2" high computer tower base stand that came with my desk that I put under my 42" aquos. Works perfectly for the 2000C whereas before the 6.5" height was directly in line with the bottom of the screen. If you can swing it I think the 2000 is well worth the extra cost considering how much the centre channel is used. If you can jimmy a solution to the height issue Bob's your Uncle.

yeah, if i could find something suitable to raise my tv up another couple inches, it would certainly work. i have a samsung lnt 4665f lcd. it has a pretty large base stand. maybe i could have a piece of thick wood cut the size of the base or something, i dunno. what would you suggest? my tv is about 5 1/2 inches from the stand to the screen , so really something a little over an inch would probably work. the base of the tv stand is 24"1/2 inches wide and 12"deep.

I live about 5 miles from their hudge store and have bought from ABT many times even big ticket items like washer/dryers, refrigerators etc. They will price match and you can deal with them for discounts from most things listed on their website.

They are very consumer oriented and are great company to buy from.

Some MDF cut to size would do the trick. Cheap too. My set overhangs the extra stand by an inch or so on the left and right, but is still totally stable. With the 2000 being 17" wide you can't even see it in behind.
