Hello all,


I recently purchased Bhazards 30" seos towers to be used in the media room of my house, whenever we get around to finishing the basement.


I've already started thinking about options for the center channel. Obviously I could build a 3rd SEOS 12 / TD12X tower to match the L/R. However, I'm not sure that will be possible due to size/height.


I've been looking at some of the other options that are out there (i.e. the malcolm, potentially a volt coax) but wanted to get opinions from the more experienced DIY guys. Ideally i'd like to have high efficiency and it would also be nice if i could match the great characteristics of the TD12x (anything around using 2 6" drivers from AE?). Matching the AE drivers is the main reason I'm wary of the malcolm and the volt.


Finally, for surrounds i will almost certainly use the Volt Coax's, not sure on the 8 or 10 yet, but it would likely be the slanted surround build. Any comments on whether the ported 8" or the sealed 10" would be better in this role?


All comments / suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Get a projector and a acoustic transparent screen. Then build another identical speaker. Problem solved. Congrats on your new speakers.

Thanks Jon. I've considered that, but due to the layout of the basement it might not be possible. Its going to have to be a mixed use room and not just a dedicated theater. Because of that the tv may have to go on the long wall of the basement rather than the short wall, and an AT screen sticking out an extra foot to accommodate the speaker behind it will not only be visible, but take up much needed space.


Actually, looking at your build thread, your room is not that different in size from what i have to work with, though i might have to have the tv on the long wall in your schematic which is why i'm wary of an AT screen setup.
