Hi! I've got a dedicated home theater room being built out of part of what used to be my "man cave." The completed room will be 10 x 19 with 8 1/2 foot ceilings and I am using a 119" Diagonal Dalite Cinema Contour High Contrast CinemaVision fixed screen. This leaves me with tight room for speakers basically only 5" on either side of the screen. My previous speakers featured a front stage of three JBL 8340a professional cinema speakers ceiling mounted but pointed down to the listening position and 4 JBL Control 1 surrounds and I'm using a Boston Acoustics HPS 12HO Subwoofer. I can't both install a ceiling and use the 8340's so I had to go with something different and I went with Definitive Technology. I have on the way 2 Promonitor 800's 1 Procenter 1000 and 2 Promonitor 600's for surrounds. I would probably not have chosen the 600's on my own except they were part of a deal too good to pass up.
I have the ability to do 7.1 with my Harman Kardon AVR 2600. This leaves me with a few of choices to finish the set:
1. Buy two more 800's for main surrounds and use the 600's for back surrounds.
2. I read some earlier posts of people using 3 Procenter 1000's as a front stage, and I thought about buying 2 PC1000's and using the 800's as main surrounds and 600's for the rears. (I imagine this would give me the fullest sounding front stage but I might be wrong.)
3. I have found some good deals on old Promonitor 60's and I could least expensively buy a pair of PM 60's and use the 600's as main surrounds and 60's as rear surrounds. Would they match ok timbrally?
I had thought about getting PC2000's as a front stage but I don't quite have room to mount 3. It's really a tight fit .
