Hello,


I currently have a Denon 1610 with Cerwin-Vega E710's up front and RCA's with Linaeum tweeters and Kevlar cones for Surrounds & Center. As well a JBL PSW-1200 sub.


The room is 12.5'X17' TV is the 17' wall. I am wondering which route would be better?


4 Energy CB-5's and a Energy CC-5 OR Energy Take Classic 5.0 I have seen so many review of the Take that says they are awesome! I haven't really seen much of the CB's & CC's.


Thanks!

Haas

The CB's would be better in a room that size. The take classics are very small and best in a small size room. You may also want to look at the Jamo C401 for $80/pr. There some pics and reviews of the Jamo vs Takes in the Jamo Owners thread.

Thanks for the info! Just showed to them to the wife and she hates the wood finish. I am not a fan of it as well. That is too bad it isn't the all black version.
That is a heck of a deal on the Jamo's

yep, when the spouse has to give approval the choices are limited. Oh well.


what's your budget by the way?

$350 is pretty much max. Which is where I would be on the CB - CC combo during the presidents day sale at Electronics-Expo. Just had a guy tell me he would give me $200 for my Cerwin-Vega E-710's so that is good.

I have a similar sized room. It is my master bedroom. I ordered the Taake Classic 5.0 system a few weeks ago and I am a little disappointed. I have had the Polk RM 6750 system in there and I think it sounds pretty good and I would recommend that system over the take classic. I think the TC system sounded okay but I didn't feel like the center was as full sounding as the Polk center. In both setups I did not have surrounds and in the polk set up I had R300s for the front L/R without a sub while with the TC system I had a 3.1 setup. It's funny I came across this post because I was looking at the same sale and thinking about the CC-5 with CF-30s in the front with a pair of CB-5s for surround. I wish I could find these to listen too. In my living room I have the Polk RTiA1s and a CSi3 center. These sound great for HT. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.


I should also mention that I have had the Polk 6750 system setup as the full 5.1 system in a 12 x 10 room and I thought it sounded just fine. I probably sound like a Polk homer but I'm really more of a value shopper and I think the polks sound great for the prices I paid but I've heard good things about energy and I wanted to give them a try since I am moving my 6750s to another room.


If you don't end up pulling the trigger on this sale, I'd also suggest you take a look at HTD (Home Theater Direct). They have some nice looking and sounding speakers. A friend of mine has the middy for rears and surrounds and the look and sound good. I think they are $89/each.
