the more I think about it and take into everyone opinions I might just sacrifice the space and go with a PB12-Plus/2.
It makes sense, IMO.
|I do have a coupe of newbie qu:|
1. what is PEQ?
It is a Parametric Equalizer, any room has standing waves resonances, to compensate those PEQ is a useful tool.
|2. you recommended using a receiver with acoustic calibration feature is this the ability to say small/large speaker size, set xover etc within the receiver? I have a Yam RX-V2095|
Yes, almost any receiver with acoustic calibration has THX modes, those are designed to use electronic crossovers inside the receiver, the bass management is also usually quite good in such receivers, so you can use small speakers with musical sub, such as discussed SVS subs, for example.
I recommend to upgrade your receiver to at least Yamaha 1400 or 1500, 2400 or 2500 or Pioneer 55TXi or 56TXi - depends on your budget. But for such a good sub as PB12 Plus is, IMO it is not fair to use your old RX-V2095 receiver with only Dolby Pro-logic surround mode.
The main point for acoustic calibration is to make the FR flat ... that will benefit to the sound quality.
