Personally I'm very happy with my Triton 1s & a super center XXL, but there are quite a few people around who don't think it's possible to get proper bass when the sub is co-located with the mains.
Yes i think i want the bass spread all over the room with clear deep pure bass , i think ill go with F-LR T1 Rears T3+ with the Cs XXL

3- It's hard to find a decent comparison of the 8802a to the 7702mkii, however, there is a thread here that discusses it at length. https://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-rec...-7702-mk2.html
- From that thread:
4- I haven't used an Emotiva amp so I can't comment, but the reviews have been very good.
1 - My Room is 7*6 meters and the height 3 meters ,, there is an open hall in my living room
2,3,4 - im still confused about which processor and power amp should i buy. anthem, marantz , or emotiva,, which model.. i dont know ;/.

I would also suggest Marantz in terms of separate processors. In terms of amps for HT systems, the sky is the limit, depending on your budget. You may want to also look at Parasound. All the Best, Sandy
I think ill go with t1 ,, marantz 7702mkii look very good comparing to anthem avm 60 and 8802a , what do you think ?

In regards to your questions I have some personal experience comparing the 8802a and the 7702mkii with T1's and the SuperCenter XXL as I've owned both. I upgraded from the Denon X4000 to the Marantz 7702mkii (using the Outlaw Audio 7700 amp). The sound quality of this combination was great. No complaints whatsoever. Two months into owning the 7702 I had the opportunity to purchase the 8802a at a highly discounted price so I jumped. The build quality on the 8802a vs the 7702 is apparent, but honestly how these things look isn't nearly as important as how they sound. The 8802a does a better job with high def music sources, the soundstage was more open and dynamic vs the 7702. I was able to do a direct comparison with the pre/pros in my own home with well known source material so it helped with the comparison. The differences were not nearly as apparent with movies. Both processors sound great with movies and are very dynamic. Speaking for myself, if I were building out a surround sound system for use in a home theatre I'd use the 7702mkii (or Anthem AVM 60) over the 8802a and use the savings to dump into other components (in your case better surrounds or a second amp and height channels for Atmos). If you plan to listen to a lot of high quality HD music then the 8802a may be worthwhile.
I do not run an extra sub with my T1's, it is plenty of Bass for me. So much so that I have the gain turned all the way down on the subs (so it plays nice with Audyssey calibration). You can generate a LOT of bass with the T1's if you are in a moderately sized room. I'm happy with it, others add additional subs (using T2's or T3's for your rear surrounds would allow you to add two more powered subs to your LFE channel).
I have no experience with Emotiva products, I'm using the Outlaw Audio 7700 and am VERY happy with it. I've not compared my processor and speakers with another amplifier so I could be missing out, but I imagine I'd have to dump a crap ton more money into an amplifier to get an appreciable increase in sound quality.
I hope that helps. Feel free to pm me if you have any further questions. Cheers!
well , im trying to pm you i have to many questions but the forums not allowing me to, i dont know why

You would normally choose the 60s if you wanted one that disappeared more and mounted on the wall.You could also use Triton Two+ in the rear and run a four way split out of your LFE and get the benefit of four LFE subwoofers.We have done this with great success and the benefit is beyond just adding a separate sub. The whole question of how much "sub" you need really depends on the size of your room and personal preferences. We have one customer that has six Triton Ones and two SuperSub XXLs! Normally the bass on the Triton Ones is more than sufficient, but it is sort of like cars: if you got a Porsche 911, is the standard engine enough, would you want the S, or do you need the Turbo? We have used the Marantz 8802A and it was great. I know it is better than the 7702, but can't speak to the specifics on that. In terms of amps, I have heard good things about the Emotive, but have not heard it. You may also want to consider Parasound. All the Best, Sandy
Thank you sandy for your support. still confused about the proc and amp.

I just hooked up the Triton Two+ and ran the same test, and you can still feel the bass in the main floor, to me that is more than sufficient coverage, but tastes may vary. Spectre and Rogue Nation both have scenes that rock the house. I really suggest anyone interested in these speakers audition them at their dealer. I was heavily considering and leaning towards the Def Tech Mythos ST-Ls before I auditioned the Triton Ones in person, at which point the decision was made for me. Every set of ears is different, but I am very happy with my decision. A good pair of speakers should last a lot longer than video equipment, and/or receivers, so I factored that in when I made my initial purchases.
thanks for your support , i was between def tech and GE , i ended up with GE .
