Here is my current setup with the two 15" Rythmik subs under the AV2's and a center AV2 below the Panny 65VT30 that is extended about 6 feet from the corner wall. The Surround are two AV2's and a single AV1 for the rear.
I would like to go up a level with a change to the front and center speakers and leaving the AV2's for the surrounds and and changing the AV1 to a AV2 for the rear surround.
Will one of your new designs work for this configuration as a MTM for the fronts and something a little different for the center? I have a Parasound HCA-1205A amp and a Marantz AV7005 as a Pre-Pro. Any help for the best bang for the buck is appreciated.
One option was a pair of X-Statik kits and and a X-Voce for the center.
The front of the front AV-2"s are already three feet from the wall.
Could I combine a X-Voce and have a modified design of your X-Otica , X-Optima or X-Pro to work with the two Rythmik sub's? The front of the center AV-2 is 4' from the corner at this time.
I would still want to mount them on top of the sub's but I have 4 attach points to make a isolated mount that could move the front of the baffle plate of the new speakers up to 1' in front of the sub cabinet.
The tweeters would need to be at the same height as current ones in the AV-2's but the servo drivers of the new X model could be mounted on top instead of on the bottom if that would work.
Would something like this work and would the new front's match tonally with the X-Voce as the center?
Just thinking of all the options as I do not mind building to go up a few notches from the AV-2's but still have it blend well with the AV-2's I still will be using as the surround speakers.
The other option are two N3's and a N3s? They would be mounted the same as the current AV-2's
With the electronics I am using now what do you feel would be the the best option given the my room and the location of the speakers. I have plenty of height so that would not be a problem. The SPL would have to match or be slightly higher that the AV-2's though.
I currently have the Parasound at 140 watts RMS at 8 ohms driving them.
