My 7.1 system currently consists of:
Jamo 707 (fronts identical to the D590)
Jamo C80 CEN
Jamo C80 SUR for surround and backs

I soon hope to complete the C80 series by replacing my 707s with the C809s and my cheap Sony sub for the C80 sub.

I've very happy with all my Jamo's and have a sense of loyalty to the brand, much like one might be a Ford or a Chevy guy.

I also have a pair of 507's, an E8CEN, and a pair of SAT300II

When you upgrade to the C809's you will be very happy. These things sound AMAZING!

I have a Jamo A 10 series (with Sub 200) connected to a Denon AVR-1306

Please could you help me with the crossover I need to set on the Denon as well as the crossover I need to set on the sub to get very good quality bass efect.

Please help with the ideal settings for the following:
Cut off frequency (Hz) .................................... 40HZ-150HZ
Phase : 0-180
Volume: Min to Max

The Jamo sub is kept on the floor.

Thanks.

It depends on what music you are listening to and what kind of bass you like.

The default crossover freq. on my Yamaha receiver was 80hz and I found that to be too low for some electronic dance music. So I set it to 120hz and now I get a lot more bass out of a sub (I have SUB 250). Obviously that means I have to set cut off freq. on the sub to around 120hz.

With phase you have to experiment. I set mine to 180 - all the way to the right because at 0 I get very little bass when I'm in my normal listening position.

So basically you should just sit/stand at your favourite listening position and change phase. See where sub bass is the loudest, then leave it there.

My volume is exactly at halfway point.

With a bit of work and experimenting you should be able to get the desired bass out of a sub.

Realistically you could not use any cutoff and send the entire music signal to the sub. After all, the large driver won't even react to the higher frequencies. For that matter, many speaker designs don't even use a cross-over on bass drivers. They just have a capacitor in front of the tweeter to prevent the low frequencies from destroying the small driver.

there is very little on the net about above mentioned. Can get it brand new for reasonable price however don't know what to expect. My room is 22x18x11, Denon 3808 for receiver.

Hi

I've recently scored a Jamo E7 surround sound speaker system (E750's, E7 sub, E7 surrounds etc) and can find very little information/reviews on them.

As this is my first home theatre system, i'd like to find out peoples thoughts? Is it a reasonable speaker system? I've connected it to a Yamaha 661 amp and I "feel" like the speakers need some more power?

If anybody has Jamo E7's, any news, feedback or opinions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello, everyone.

I have a Jamo HC3 6 5.1 speaker set. I need to fix the spikes on the front spears (S606), but I am unable to figure out how. I could not follow the illustrations in the user manual, which has no text descriptions whatsoever. If someone has been able to fix the spikes on a Jamo speaker set, please let me know how to do it. Your help will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

i got mine fixed from jamo itself, they normally come & do the installation for u but it looked pretty easy, u have to screw the plate first below the speakers,
they provide u with the screws, after putting the plate the spikes just go in the plate holes, its pretty easy,

cheers...
post #73 of 5636
Thanks, insane79. Unfortunately, I don't live in the same place as it was bought in. I didn't find any holes under the speaker to put the screws in. The only thing this means is that I must drill them in. But I am wary about doing such violence to the speakers. I would like to fix those spikes, but I want to be sure I am doing it right. In any case, what do the spikes do apart from holding up the speakers, because they seem to stand firm without them as well.

Thanks, again.
post #74 of 5636
I'm sorry. I did find them after looking closely. I must be going blind. But I would still like to know if they are there only to add to the stability.
post #75 of 5636
the spikes are good if u have a carpet floor, for normal floors they are pretty useless, they do give it a cool look factor for u to show off to ur frds ;-)
u should install them its easy, just screw the plate under the speakers in the holes, DO NOT DRILL any holes that might damage things. after fixin the plate just
put the spikes in the holes of the plates, its simple, it raises the speakers too by a 1-2 inches.

cheers..

I just bought Jamo's 5.1 package which includes

- S 606 floorstander x2
- S 60 CEN
- S 60 surround x 2
- SUB 550 subwoofer (550W/10''/26-150Hz)

I have to say, dark apple looks damn nice together with shiny piano black. Speakers are connected to Harman Kardon AVR-255, so now I can finally start enjoying those true HD sounds!
post #77 of 5636
^^ sweet man, i got the same speaker package except i got the sub250, the sub 550 must be ground breaking :-) hows the bass???
post #78 of 5636
Hey guys I was just wondering how yuou like your C60's?

I was thinking of picking up a set just to check out dipole surrounds to see if I like that type of speakers.

cheers
post #79 of 5636
I just got a pair of these. Does anyone have any info on these?
post #80 of 5636
New to the forum, I have a great Jamo setup, and it sounds great. I have the Jamo D870, D SUR, D Center, powered by an Acurus A150X5 amp, Acurus ACT3 pre-amp with the 7.1 upgrade. Its a great setup for DVD-Audio. I had the older Concert 11 speakers, I had problems with one of the speaker, I sent the speaker in for service, they were not able to fix it, so they sent me a brand new set! They sent me the D870's. I was floored, every since I have been a loyal Jamo customer. I'm currently looking to buy the Jamo Sub 650, has anybody heard that sub?
post #81 of 5636
Well I had the D450's for a little over a week now and they sound amazing. I have a Pioneer Elite VSX49TX receiver powering these in a true bi amped configuration. I am putting about 600 watts to each speaker however the amperage is low. I want to get a 5 channel amp and send 4 channels to the front mains. When money allows I will be getting an amp for these. Overall I am satisfied due to the price I got these for.
post #82 of 5636
I am thinking about purchasing a set of C809's and (2) C 80 SUB's. Any thoughts on either of these 2 would be great. I have had Klipsch RF-7's and Polk LSi-25's before. I have recently sold the RF-7's and have the itch to try the Jamo's. I currently own B&K equipment (REF 200.2 and PT3 SII). I mostly listen to rock. This will be for a 2 channel setup. I am going to listen to them tomorrow hopefully.

Hello to everyone one! (or G-day in Australia)

I also just bought the Jamo S606 5.0 pack, but minus the subwoofer.
I would prefer to get Jamo, because the dealer will give me a special discount on the sub if i get Jamo.

Well i was thinking about getting the Jamo SUB250, but my dealer can also get the SUB300.. Hmm i would always prefer bigger and i can afford the 300. Just thinking also: planey, you have the SUB550, how does it sound? If anyone has the SUB300, opinions would be appreciated.

Cheers
post #84 of 5636
^^ i have the sub250 & sounds very nice, so i guess the sub300 will be SWEET,
the SUB300 has a volume control in the front thats awesome
post #85 of 5636
thanks insane. one question. when you say.. crank up the volume a bit on an action-style movie, how well does it handle the low frequencies? cheers
post #86 of 5636
^^ the low freqs are very nice & very good quality bass, i cant imagine wat the sub300 will sound like, just go for it dude, u wont regret it

cheers..
post #87 of 5636
Btw the front towers give plenty of bass too, so with the sub300 u are on a treat mate
post #88 of 5636
sweet dude. so glad to hear your loving the Sub250.

I may as well go for it then! yeah i think the slight difference is the woofer is larger at 10inch, and the blue rotary volume knob at the front.

I'll give you some feedback when i get it this weekend.. cant wait!!! aaargh
post #89 of 5636
Hi all!
I'm new to the forum and have a question or two

Before I pull the trigger, I wanted to get some opinions on my selection of speakers. I finally settled on a set of E640's for my main speakers. The deal I got simply could not be ignored based on my listening tests with a couple other brands (i.e. I didn't hear something worth an extra $200 - $300) I was going to match them with the C60CEN, a pair of A320's for the rear surrounds and the Sub 200 (8" 200W sub). Unfortunately, I have nowhere around here to listen to the complete set. The reason for the A320's is aesthetics. I can't have anything larger in the location for the surrounds. I went with the C60CEN figuring I would some day upgrade to another front set from the concert series (maybe the C603's). My question is what do people think of this setup? It will be matched with an Onkyo 606 receiver and mostly used for music or concert videos (movies and TV I would guess about 30% of the time).
The second question is about the E640's. Does anyone think they feel rather light weight as far as speaker go? I really expected them to feel more massive, and almost can imagine being able to crush the sides easily! They still sound good (to my ears anyway) so maybe it is not a big deal.
Finally, do y'all think there is a big difference between the C603 and the E640? Other than the design (tweeter on the bottom) they seem to have nearly the same specs and cone sizes. How much better would they be (as in... did I blow it with the discontinued series?)

Thanks in advance!

I got hooked on Jamo several years ago when I started using one of their amps to power my outdoor speakers. Three years ago I buttoned up our two car garage under and began a slow process to turn it into a combo toy room for the kiddies and HT for the big kiddies. With time on my side and patience, I was able to gather a nice collection of Jamo in-wall speakers and a sub, all from eBay for very little money. All /new/ as well, with the exception of the sub.

My Jamo collection consists of a 626K3 for the center, 2 x 892A2 for the front R/L, and a D 6Sub whose 15" driver I swear registers on nearby seismographs. I just fired all these up yesterday (with my Onkyo TX-SR805) for a wiring test and loved the sound (even though the room is unfinished and somewhat echoey). Can't wait for a couple months from now when the room is finished and I can get them tuned.

My side surrounds are JBL SP6 and rear surrounds are SP6C. Not Jamo, but I hope they'll do a fine job for the intended purpose.
