Got my front three speakers upgraded to the B&C tweeters this afternoon, but didn’t get any listening in as I had lots more work to do in the theater. I’m lining the walls and ceiling with triple black velvet a few yards at a time, added some more black carpet around the edges of the room and I cleared out some gear to position the S1812’s in opposite corners which should give me a solid response.

The tweeter swap wasn’t too bad if you consider yourself at all handy and took me a couple hours for all three; the center channel took twice as long because of the orientation of the old bolts left little room for turning the wrench. A 10mm and 11mm socket set does speed things when able to be used, but as I posted in the tweeter upgrade page, you’ll definitely want an 11mm wrench for removing the old driver bolts because working so close to a powerful magnet makes it a little tricky.

It was really neat seeing how well the innards of each speaker were assembled; that PSA quality and attention to detail really shines through from every nut and bolt to the insulation, wiring, crossover assembly, and little finishing touches throughout the cabinet.








Speakers: PSA MTM-210T x2, MTM-210C, Volt-10 x2
Subs: PSA S1812 x2; MA’s: Crowson x2
Processing: Denon X4200, MiniDSP 2x4 HD
PJ: Epson 5050UB
Screen: Silver Ticket 106" HC

question for anyone out there....


I noticed that the bookshelf and the tower speakers have the same dB ratings despite the tower having the additional 10" woofer. Is there any sound difference between the tower and the bookshelf? It seems like the bookshelf makes more sense but I know I am missing something.


Also, has there been any talk of speakers with smaller woofers? I'm anal about having a matching front stage and as much as I want to try the PSA speakers, I don't think I can fit that monstrous center speaker anywhere.


EDIT: I just realized I clicked on the wrong bookshelf when looking at the specs. The 110 is 95db and the 210 bookshelf is the same as the tower at 98dB. So the 2nd woofer does indeed make a difference.

That 10" woofer on the center channel is what's currently stopping me from getting a PSA front stage, until I build my AT screen setup

It can be done. TV isn't too high IMO it's perfect for me, I'm 6'1.

Nice! You have the MTM as L&R! One of these days I'll upgrade to those and move my MT for surround duty.

Feel the same, for me a dome tweeter speaker was best for just movies and a ribbon tweeter speaker was best for just music, but these PSA's have given me the best of both worlds, and not to mention the volume levels they can reach.
I popped a few tweeters in other more expensive speakers, also enjoying not needing a power amp anymore.
I had never had a Horn tweeter speaker how do you compare them with the Klipsch?

Some of the older Klipsch (horns) are very bright, the original Hersey has crazy mids...almost like a bull horn lol but it made you feel like the music was right in your face!

One thing i did like about the older Klipsch (with horns) was the wide the sound stage. Unfortunately the horns were very thin and they would resonate... i was thinking about using some dynamat on them ( very popular upgrade) but i ended up selling them for a forte.

Nice speaker list you have there... i always was wondered about goldenear, are those bi-pole?

You are correct the PSA speakers gave me best of both worlds.

The Goldenears aren't bipole, but they were made for music, but needed an amp to get the most out of them. But just weren't good for movies.
The biggest disappoint was the Paradigm, all I heard was how awesome they were, what I paid for the L/C/R setup on those was about twice for the PSA's I have, and I was never happy with the sound and they 100% needed an amp to get anything out of them.

In order to keep my TV closer to the MLP, I have no intentions of wall mounting my TV. Plus, I really like the height my TV is currently at. Very comfortable and is a good height with my towers. Going wall mounted would put it higher than I'd really like.

So after installing the tweeters, I listened to Van Morison's Astral Weeks & Nils Lofgren's "Acoustic Live". Been listening to these albums forever, maybe longer, wore out more than one copy of Astral Weeks for sure.

Astral Weeks has alot of stuff going on at all times. With the new tweeters I could really hear the difference in many of the instruments. Specifically the flutes really jumped out, the violins became cleaner and the mid-register of Van's voice filled out much nicer.

Nils Lofgren's Acoustic Live album is a reference recording, one of the best recordings out there.
The tweeters really shined here. The guitars all sounded better, much thicker, like they just had new strings put on, Nil's presence was much more foward with the new tweeters.

I'm happy, consider the money well spent on the tweeter upgrade.

Thanks for taking the time to give us your thoughts. Sounds like a worth wild upgrade.

Congrats!

Before upgrading to PSA speakers my system consisted of all Klipsch reference II, and I think you’ll be very impressed with the step up to PSA’s. They are truly effortless at any tolerable listening level in most spaces that aren’t an Olympic auditorium.

What are your listening preferences?

What are your listening preferences?

Music? Rock, Blues, Jazz, some Techno, and country.

Mostly movies and TV in a 5.2.2 setup

You are not going to be disappointed in the performance and the amount of volume they can produce.

I see you are using an Outlaw amp try using the speakers for a few days without the amp and see what you think.
I was using an Emotiva XPA9 and after talking to people on here I disconnected the amp tried it out and have never gone back, I can't tell the difference.

Just a random message..

I have a pair of the 110's and they were mounted on stands behind me as my only surrounds. They were located there because of the room layout but a buddy convinced me to try them on sides instead.
All I can say is HOLY ****, I have been missing out on sound. Before I heard the surrounds but now they fill space behind me and above me, I feel like and idiot for keep my surrounds behind me like to for so long.

With what these 110's surrounds are giving me in sound I could never really see the need for 7.1.


Just my 2 cents.

Yes that does make a huge difference. I would go atmos before surround backs if you were prioritizing

Yep, the imaging on the PSA speakers is so good you will think you have rear speakers even when you are just running the side surrounds.

I agree with Imureh, I started with a PSA front stage with the side surrounds (5.2 set up), then I added Atmos (5.2.4 set up) and I just added in the PSA rear surrounds for a 7.2.4 set up. Of all the channels, the rear channels are the first I would give up if I had to. I do like having rear speakers but I feel they are the least important of all the channels.

Subwoofers: PSA TV36 iPal X2 ...Speakers: PSA MTM-210T L/R - PSA MTM-210C Center- PSA MT110SR's Surrounds - PSA MT110's Rear - RSL C34E Atmos... Motion Actuators: Crowson Shadow 8 - X2

Yeah I just added last weekend 4 Klipsch 500SA's for Atmos. Have 2 on wall ceiling height behind me and 2 on the side walls same height.
It's now like sound all around me.

So, I should be able to upgrade my LCR in the next few weeks and have pretty much decided on PSA.

That said, I am still debating which setup to go with, I had originally decided on three MT-110s across the board but have since considered perhaps going with the MTM-210s at least for the L/R....probably overkill for my room but rather be safe than sorry.

As for the center....i have two choices...MT-110 vertically or MTM-210c horizontal. Either way the center will be below the screen(135in) and close to the floor....I have about 20in of room to work with below the screen. Obviously having the three speakers aligned on the same plane is out of the question...unless I go with three 110s and put them all on the floor aimed up with toe?

I am still not sure on if given my room/layout I am better with the vertical 110 or horizontal 210c. 18x12x8 room....two rows of seats...front row(3 seats) ~10ft from screen...rear row(2 seats) about ~16ft from screen raised on ~18in riser.

Have you considered the MT-110C for your center channel?


Are you mainly a movie person or is music important too?
