Our Hangout... HT, Pool Table and a View

Circa 2009.... the beginning

Put an addition on the house with a deck.. arrow points to the new room.


The room is 25 x 25 and I used one side for the HT. Not the best but it ended up pretty darn awesome. I used all Paradigm ceilings.
Paradigm SA-15R for front surrounds and SA-15R-30's for the rear surrounds. The SA-15R is down firing and the -30's are angle fired at 30 degrees.

During this phase I added a Paradigm C5 Center and an SVS PB-13 Ultra sub.

For L/R's I started out with a pair of Definitive BP-8's. Sold the Def Techs and as an interim, used a pair of B&W Maxtris 805's that I had laying around.

You should be proud that you've gotten more satisfaction from your journey. Those Seatons looked really nice, and being a cat whisperer I had to check http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/
So far so good, maybe the cat was just not wanting to get off the woobie blanket.

Yes. Already there from when I had the Seatons. I hear people complaining about that. .. it's no big deal and a good thing to have anyway.

I am interested as well. Also interested in impressions of the Legacy and Triad units -- and most interested in how you are able to get all this to fly with the wife.

I have a very understanding wife.

I am more of a 2 channel listener. The Seatons were a mistake on my part as they did not work with my room acoustics and were more geared towards HT. I also found that I am not particularly fond of compression tweeters. I must add the Cat's sounded great at a local GTG in a well treated HT. Compression tweeters sound better in the correct environment, I think.

The Triad Platinums were very refined. They have real composure even under higher volumes but the tweeter will submit at exceeding levels. You would expect that with a small dome. They aren't a full range speaker so they rely on subwoofers. No problem there. They simply sound great with 2 channel and HT.

For my particular preferences and with an untreated room, the Legacy Focus SE keeps me satisfied. The new Air Motion tweeter is incredible... airy and I have yet to get them to succumb to my love for loud and precise, even now with 1750 wpc XPR-1's. I had the previous Focus SE's with the older tweeters. They sounded great but the sweet spot was a bit small. The new tweeters make a huge difference. I love the fact that they are full range.... 2- 12" woofers each. I run them full range along with the Seaton Submersives. Got lots of down low and I think the Legacy's blend well with the subs, crossover wise. I like the sound.

I will be building some sound absorption panels to hang on the walls and possibly the ceiling which should take the sound quality up another level at high volumes. At moderate levels they sound incredible. Higher volumes you get some reflection from the room that takes away from the overall experience.

Depends on your preferences. You would need to hear both. I personally would put the Legacy's above the 803 for their ability to play full range loud with a tweeter array that is unmatched at this price level.

Integra definitely sounds better. Not sure why. Seems to be cleaner and stronger even though it's older with less power.

Update... just had a failure with the Integra. Zone 2 died. My wife turned the system on the other day and all we got was some relay clicking back and forth. I ended up powering down to stop it. Now there is no Zone 2.

Second receiver in a row that has lost Zone 2.

The one constant, the TV.


Is that wood or laminate flooring?

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Wow, is the end goal here to try and shake the nails loose from your drywall? That's a lot of power and a lot of speaker! Amazing.

Thanks all for the complements.

Updated list..... as of December 2016

Replaced the Paradigm Ceilings with Speakercraft AIM 285's.
The Paradigms just couldn't keep up with the rest of the system. The AIM's can handle nearly twice the power and instead of different 30 deg rears like the Paradigms, the AIMs are adjustable so I used the same model in all four positions. You can tilt the woofer and the tweeter arrays separately to "AIM" them towards the listening position.
BTW the magnetically attached AIM speaker grills are perfect. The Paradigm grills simply pushed into a groove. They began falling off over time. I had to add tape to thicken the flange to stop them from falling off.
