I'm looking for up to three Definitive Technology UIW BPZ/A speakers (the bigger version of the BP/A that has the 6.5" drivers). These were made from early 2000s until maybe around 2014 when they were clearanced out. Anyone have some to sell, or is anyone considering an upgrade to something else and would be willing to sell theirs? I've scoured Google, craigslist, eBay, and I have had no luck finding them.
I currently have a 6.1.2 system that uses 2 BP2000s, 1 C/L/R 2000, and 5 BPZ/A speakers (FHL, FHR, SL, SR, and SB) and I am looking to upgrade to a 15.2.6 system using the Denon AVR-8500H and would like to use more BPZ/A speakers for the additional speaker positions. Unfortunately, the cutout size of the BPZ/A is 7.3125" x 13.625" and that is larger than the flange of any other bipolar speaker that Definitive Technology currently sells (UIW RSS II, UIW RSS III, DI 5.5BPS). So changing out the speakers to a different DT bipolar speaker is not an option without lots of patch and paint work. I could always change out the BPZ/As to the DI 6.5 LCR speakers, but I love the way the Definitive Technology bipolar speakers make the soundfield sound so huge the room disappears. My room is 15' deep by 22' wide and has 12' ceilings. I am installing UIW RLS II for the SL, SR, SBL, and SBR, and would like to use BPZ/A speakers for FHL, FHR, TML, TMR, RHL, RHR, CH, and TS speaker positions: my existing 5 BPZ/A are already in position for FHL, FHR, RHL, RHR, and TS, so I would be adding 3 BPZ/A speakers for TML, TMR, and CH.
Does anyone have any leads on where I might find some UIW BPZ/A speakers? Or does anyone have any suggestions for changing out speakers that would work with my existing cutout sizes?
I am also looking for any opinions on replacing my BPZ/A bipolar speakers in any of those speaker positions with the DI 6.5 LCR speakers instead (i.e. do you think I would like it better with DT DI 6.5LCR directional speakers for the six Dolby Atmos speaker positions and/or the Auro-3D TS and CH speakers)?
Thanks in advance!
