I've been posting in a thread I started this weekend on an issue I'm having with my current setup. I currently have Elemental Design 6T6 3 Way Towers for the front and the 6T6 MTM for the center. Quite large speakers. I've never been happy with the center and recently, with a new Denon AVR-X3400H receiver, and a new calibration, I've realized how weak it sounds. Talking with folks on AVS over the last few days, it appears Elemental Designs had issues with Mid Range frequencies and a bad crossover. I'd like to upgrade, but will most likely just upgrade the Center channel first to get a little more "UMPH" to my system as the center sounds a little Tinny for now. I've done many of the suggestions from posters and nothing has improved it, so sounds like I need an upgrade.
My room is 13' Wide and 19' Long. It's a Dedicated HT room, yet a budget room. The Suspended ceiling is only 7'4" from front wall to about 11' back, then it drops down about 8" to get under Duct work and I have a riser there with a second row, so the ceiling would be less than 6' from 11' back to the back wall that is 19'. I have Absorption Panels at the first reflection points on my side walls. My PJ screen is a 120" screen. Due to low ceiling and a large screen, my center speaker sits low to the ground and is angled up. It's the only choice I have with the screen size I have.
I do NOT like bright sounding speakers or Harsh sounding speakers. I was told the Elac are "Neutral", is this correct?
I'd like to get the Debut 2.0 C6.2 Center Speaker. For those that have this Center, is the Dialogue clear and does it produce some umph to it with Deep voices?
Not sure if I should go with the Debut 2.0 F5.2 or 6.2 Towers. I listen fairly loud. Not quite to reference level, but depending on how the movie was mixed, I can get it close to Reference. Thoughts?
