Right now I have a 2.0 system with Paradigm Studio 10s with the eventual goal of going 5.1. My question is what is the next logical step to take, do I add a center, a sub, or surrounds first? Does it matter or is it just personal preference? Any help?


Thanks.

Personal preference. I'd add a subwoofer first, then the center speaker.


Surrounds would definitely be last.

Plus 1. I have Paradigm Monitor 9's and I just bought a Rythmik FV15. Awesome sub and works great with the Paradigms.

Well I think you should add the surrounds first.

Your fronts can probably do good bass and create a phantom center easily, but only the surrounds will give that extra dimension.

Frequency response of Studio 10's is 62hz - 22khz. I wouldn't call that good bass. Decent at best.

With small front speakers like the Studio 10, your system is definitely bass-shy!


I would want to get a decent subwoofer ASAP!


I suggest either the NHT B12D or the Rythmic FV12.

I agree with most above....


I would definitely add the sub next as your fronts are pretty small.....


Then, if your fronts create a decent phantom center, I would add surrounds as the second upgrade....


If they don't, I would go center channel second on the list to upgrade....


Thats just the way I would do it.....

I take it back, I wasn't thinking. I agree with your speakers you should go with a subwoofer first. That's what enticed me to get home theater in the first place.

You can get some surrounds pretty cheap too.

Be sure to research and ask questions in the AVS subwoofer forum . There are some good values in subwoofers out there--and many more that are way overpriced for what you get.
