Just got a C/L/R 3000 from E-Bay, can't wait to hear it compared to the 2300, now I'll have full driver match on everything but the heights.
6.5's all the way around and 5.25's up top.

The link does not work, but you can see it by doing a cut a paste and doing a search.

Either way the community would love to see picture and so do I.

Speakers are custom designs using KEF q100 uni-Q drivers that I was able to purchase crossed over to 8" woofers in PE cabinets. AJ from Soundfield Audio designed and built them. Subs are DIY 4cu/ft cabs with 18" Dayton HO subs and 500 watt Dayton plate amps. Sounds great. I'm really happy with everything.

Hey Dan.

Nice little set-up you got!

I like what you use to inlcine the center speaker, custom made?
Look a little steap too me (up wise) but I am not the one sitting in room!
Are the tweeters fom your main and center at the same level?

What I do, is using a laser from the speakers (main and center, and do the math difference [using a ruler] for ading or subtracting the difference of tweeter hight from the different speaker).

But the end result is if your Happy like you said, IS all it matter!

Just a little trick, in case you did not know-it

Those subs look Awsome!

Thanks Ray. Those are door stops from Target tilting my center channel up. I went in looking for the regular wedge kind and was surprised to see these.

The tweeters from the left, right and center speaker are all equidistant from my main seat on the couch--10.5 ft.

The tweeters on the left and right speaker are at ear level when I'm sitting straight up on the couch. They are each toed in a bit past the point of firing directly at me.

The center's tweeter when tilted up with the doorstops, is just slightly firing over my head. That's okay though, as coincident drivers tend to be a bit smoother about 10 degrees off axis. So I'm getting that from all three speakers--horizontally from the left and right, and vertically from the center.

The subs worked out well, thanks. I'm getting extension down to a solid 20hz. And having them in front and back like they are was the smoothest combination I could achieve. I measured them in every possible combo that was feasible. Plus, I really like the way one sub looks under the TV without any electronics there.

Thanks
Dan

Too bad they don't make a smaller version.
From the pic of the center, you have space to experement if you want a lower angle, not sure about stability!?

Anyhow nice little space you got.

Sounds great, voices seem fuller and slightly more natural, going to put it through its paces this weekend but from what I can tell so far, I understand why these aren't so easy to find used, and no-one wants to part with them.

Guess my C/L/R 2300 is for sale...lol

Are you in San Francisco? Based on the layout of the room I could swear I've been in this house before, or at least one with a similar design.

Just picked this up off Craigslist
It's my first true 5.1 system.
Well its actually a 7.1 but reciever only allows a 5.1 at the moment

RF-15 fronts (2)
RC-25 center (1)
RS-35 rears (4)
RSW-10 (1)

Got it all for $200!

Wanting to upgrade the sub already. Don't get me wrong it sounds great but I have a very large living room and it just can't fill it.

Kenwood VR-5900, PSB M2 and Velodyne SPL1000R.
Still thinking should I get the PSB c2 center or not, since watching movies in stereo the 3D soundstage is great already.

I am using the Sony bookshelf's for surround and surround back duty. Again these need proper placement but i hate to have wires cutting across my rectangular shaped apartment living room. I will think of something soon though
I came up with something for the center channel. I posted it. It's got potential to be a great idea.
