Height Speakers - Advice needed!

303 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  ahands

Hi all,



I'm finally getting my man cave, and i'm erring on the side of getting some height speakers for my set up. My question is: Should I, and if so, what should I get?



I have an old (but beastly) 5.2 JBL HT-1THX set-up (3 X HT-1F, 2 X HT-1D, 2 X HT-1S)


I'm running a Sony STR-DN1030 which powers the 5 channels, with the subs powered by some old Yamaha amp taking the sub out from the Sony, and running the subs in stereo (on large).



I also have a 90" projection screen going up with a viewing distance of 3m (39 degree viewing angle), so i want to make use of the wall, and i think that i will be close enough to appreciate the height channels. My receiver supports Dolby IIz, so it's a shame to not use it.


I'm currently looking at some JBL Control 1 speakers because they are small, cheap, and I figure that anything coming out of these speakers will be in the mid-high freq range. Are these likely to be a nice fit or do i need something a bit beefier to match the rest of my set, or should I not bother with height speakers at all?
