Ed, afraid I'm gonna be no help for a couple reasons 1) Nothing is set up yet, all still in boxes. 2) I'm really new to all this having only had a HTIB set-up in the past. At present I am running a Yamaha sound bar with my 65" Panasonic's ZT60.
So this is my first attempt at something much nicer than the HTIB. I can tell you what I have so far that I would really like to add a couple of your subs to. Everything below is still in their boxes waiting to be set-up.
Ascend Acoustics 340SE for LCR
Ascend Acoustics 170SE for L&R surround
4ea-Cambridge Audio Minx Min 12 for Atmos
And finally subs........you tell me.
I definitely like it loud when i listen to action movies, but not omg loud, just loud enough to really feel involved.
I know looking at the diagram above I am only sitting in less than half of the whole room, but also understand that the whole complete room has to be considered with regards to the subs. And as previously stated I really want to hear and feel everything that is intended. So while I am leaning towards the dual PC-2000 because of budget and waf, I want to make sure they are enough to do what i want, otherwise i will wait until i can afford what you recommend because anything more than dual PC-2000 right now will be out of my budget. Thank you in advance Ed, I look forward to your recommendation.
Ed,if you read my updated post above because of my subterfuge/lying we could go with a box over a cylinder, but i know she would prefer the cylinder.
