How do you guys think three 210’s will sound behind a 120” screen? This will mean the L and R will be roughly 7’ apart! Anybody running thing similar! Or do you think I would be better off getting 210t’s for L and R and putting them at either end of false wall which will be 10” across and placing v1811’s on the outsides of those???

If it works with your décor I would go with the 210Ts with the extra separation.

You think this would sound better?, this will be a dedicated space so looks are no matter, just want the best sound, but if I do towers the subs will be on the outside of those! So 210’s on the subs is an option also

I think 10 ft separation would sound better especially with the center. If your seating position is much closer than 10 ft I might reconsider. I can't help with the subs.

I have 3 210 towers behind my Seymour AT screen and so glad I did that they sound is amazing.Having the 3 matched is the way to go and now standard center channel can compare to full tower.

My 210Ts are 9 1/2 ft apart and the rear of my seats are 9 ft. I sit off center about 4 ft to the left. The left speaker definitely dominates over the right. The center channel isn't an issue. If I were in the middle I don't think it would make much difference if the fronts were 7 or 10 ft apart. If I am offset to the left and the speakers were 7 ft apart the left would still dominate.


Multiple seats creates a problem. Thinking about it some more I really don't know the answer. Increasing the distance from the screen would probably help but that isn't always possible.

I have the same 3 X 210T behind AT screen. 120" wide 2.4 ratio.

Absolutely love the sound and cannot recommend PSA enough. Last theater had 3 identical speakers (different brand) LCR as well and I personally would not go any other way if I had the option.

After 5 hours of freeway driving and plenty of time to think about this I would like to change my response. I think 7' is plenty of separation with 10' back of chair distance which is closer to 9' to the ears. It also helps minimize the localization of the left and right speakers when the listening positions are not in the middle. So my vote is for behind the screen.


And yes that is what I spent my time thinking about while driving

I think I’m going to go with the 210 non T, for the front 3. I think in the end this will give me the most flexibility! Being in Canada I can’t just send them back, so as much as I want the towers it’s probably smarter to not! This way I can put them behind the screen, or on the subs at either end of the false wall, or if subs measure poorly in those locations but I like how the speakers sound there I can build some kind of wing off the side to hold the speaker! Thanks for the help

Sounds like a good plan. I have three 210's for LCR behind a 105" wide AT scope screen. They sit on top of 8" Styrofoam cubes on top of the subs at the inside edges of the screen, toed-in to the MLP. As you've said, flexibility will be best with this setup. Enjoy.

Those are going to be great speakers. The towers dig a little deeper due to the larger cabinet size. That won't make any difference when using a sub. I made my decision based on aesthetics and logistics. I like the tower *look* and I didn't want to deal with stands. I am sure you will be very satisfied with the speakers. Flexibility is a good reason for the choice.

Sup everyone! Right now my home theater consists of a 60" TV hooked up to a soundbar. After many weeks of research and lurking, today I pulled the trigger on a 3.1 set with 210Ts, a 210C and a V3611. I need some verification from the experts here, though...will this be an upgrade over my current setup?

In all seriousness, I'm glad to finally be able to post in this thread! Recently moved into a new house that has a 39' x 23' room with a vaulted ceiling going from 8' to 12'. Always wanted to get good HT equipment so I began researching and like so many others had paralysis analysis. Eventually I came across some threads here on PSA speakers and it wasn't long before I moved them to top of my want list. Considering the size of my room and the fact I wasn't ready for a full 7.2.4 setup, I was after a quality 3.1 set that would ensure I was setting myself up for current and future HT success. Spoke with Tom and a few days later here we are.

As for my receiver, I got lucky and was able to get in on that recent 15% off eBay coupon and picked up a new Denon 4400. Should be here on Monday. Also while looking into speaker cables I found the threads for making your own and bought the parts for that (cabling, banana plugs, sleeving, pants boot y splitters). Over time I of course want to complete the 7.2.4 (or more) but I have to come up with a solid plan for this room due to the dimensions and other requirements, plus I'd like to expand into the rest of the house and outside but for now I should be all set.

I'm beyond excited to finally be able to properly jump into the world of home theater with speakers from PSA!

I am not one of the experts. However I can guarantee you without hesitation that your PSAs will be a very substantial upgrade over whatever soundbar you have! And welcome to the thread.

In all seriousness, I'm glad to finally be able to post in this thread! Recently moved into a new house that has a 39' x 23' room with a vaulted ceiling going from 8' to 12'. Always wanted to get good HT equipment so I began researching and like so many others had paralysis analysis. Eventually I came across some threads here on PSA speakers and it wasn't long before I moved them to top of my want list. Considering the size of my room and the fact I wasn't ready for a full 7.2.4 setup, I was after a quality 3.1 set that would ensure I was setting myself up for current and future HT success. Spoke with Tom and a few days later here we are.



As for my receiver, I got lucky and was able to get in on that recent 15% off eBay coupon and picked up a new Denon 4400. Should be here on Monday. Also while looking into speaker cables I found the threads for making your own and bought the parts for that (cabling, banana plugs, sleeving, pants boot y splitters). Over time I of course want to complete the 7.2.4 (or more) but I have to come up with a solid plan for this room due to the dimensions and other requirements, plus I'd like to expand into the rest of the house and outside but for now I should be all set.



I'm beyond excited to finally be able to properly jump into the world of home theater with speakers from PSA!


Congrats and welcome to the PSA family!

Hey fellas and Ladies!

So now thanks to @point1 and @Tom Vodhanel , I am now the PROUD owner of a pair of MTM-210's and a MTM210c! These things :rock:!!!

Had a super easy transaction w/ Point1 and he kept me up to date for every step of the way - thank you for that man! We continue correspondence to this day, and he become the death of my pocketbook via AV purchases, which I am very thankful for

And Tom was super accommodating whether it came to shipping the original OEM boxes to Point1, or selling me the MTM-210c after hours, and giving my buddy and I a tour of the PSA Warehouse (!!!!!!) - 10 stars all around man and really great to have met you and see where the magic happens up close and get the $5 tour haha

But now... my initial audiophile-challenged impressions are...these things are crazy loud, lol. I'm coming from a pair of Paradigm Monitor 9 v7's and these babies are seriously at least twice as loud. And probably five times as clear! I was initially hesitant to use these for audio as much as I did the paradigms and just use them for HT...but I'm seriously in love with the clarity and wide soundstage that many other people have commented on. It really does sound very spread out just listening to 2.0 or 2.1 music!

It really does catch every whisper, lisp, grunt, instrument, cymbal and then some whilst listening to a variety of tracks from A Perfect Circle, Santigold, to Pusha T, Future, Glass Animals, and anything and everything in-between! I've removed my limiter on my AVR from 0 and caught myself COMFORTABLY listening at +5, which is crazy. As the kids say, zero distortion that I can hear! I just hope my FV25HP can keep up!!

Anyhow - I was going to post some pics but I've got these babies up on less than desirable stands right now (milk crates, whoo hoo! lol) until my buddy and I are ready to put our stand project in motion tomorrow. Once I get everything setup real nice like I'll take some pics and upload them.

Thanks again Tom for the courteousness and being a stand up guy all the way around!

Oh, and these speakers are amazing for HT as well! Just watched Mad Max in 4k so far at pretty much reference volume all the way through, also checked out an episode of Punisher, but I've yet to really really test them...coming soon!

Congratulations to both of you. IMO these speakers are among the best speakers available at any price and they are by far the best at their price point. You guys are in for a lot of great audio in the future. Enjoy and welcome to PSA.

Yes, I can also attest that these play loud and clean. I recently switched from a front Projector to a 77” OLED and moved my PSA 210T’s closer to the LP, and I’m finding I have to significantly lower the volume. And as has been pointed out, you could not ask for a better buying experience than PSA provides.

My 210’s are here. Do these speakers need “break-in”? Should I play them at moderate listening levels for a certain amount of time? Sorry for the noob question.

No need. Their moderate level would be loud enough

Yeah they need break-in, the time it takes to get them into position and hooked up.........broke in..let them rip.

Just saw this Javan. Much appreciated. Someday we'll have a real demo room with 7.4.4.4.4 and I can demo things here too!

We measure things here before, during, after assembly so there's some break in associated with that. But I won't say things won't change a LITTLE over time. But as far as "kicking them in the guts" for loud demos---right out of the box is fine. The only caveat is I'd let them warm up to room temp if they we're delivered someone in new-arctic region(most of the midwest last few days).

And I know the tendency is to reach for the newest hollywood blockcuster but don't ignore your fav concert discs. Rush, Led Zep, anything with good female vocals...

I'm looking for opinions and advice on a PSA speaker upgrade I am considering. I currently have a 5.1 setup in a 16" x 24' basement area. I'm in the process of dividing the space and enclosing a 12.5' x 15' dedicated theater room. Amplification is via a Denon 4400. The television is a LG65C7 OLED but will eventually be a 77" or larger OLED. Not planning on a projector at this time. Front speakers are Paradigm Studio 100 V2's, the center channel is a Paradigm Studio CC V2 and my rear speakers are a pair of older B&W bookshelfs. The sub is a PSA V1500. I have had the Paradigms for 18 years and am just ready for a change. My thoughts are a pairt of MTM210's for the front with MT110 rears and a MTM210C for the center channel or just doing five MTM 110's. If I go the five MTM110 route I would probably add a second V1500 since the costs would be quite close. I also plan on using four RSL C34e's for Atmos. Current room usage is about 80% theater and 20% music. Curious if anyone has gone from Paradigm's to PSA for speakers and how they compare with music and movies. Musically I mainly listen to old school punk rock like The Clash, Black Flag, Bad Brains and Minor Threat, classic stuff like Neil Young, The Who, and Zeppelin or bands like Wilco and Muse. very curious as to how PSA sounds with music since I'm assuming from all I have read that they are very strong with films. Thanks in advance for any insight.

James
