Hoping to get someone's advice on these two issues.
First, I am going to upgrade my front channel in-walls (pinnacle WAFR CT 525) which are currently part of a 7.2 surround system using the center WAFR flush 606 rears and center BD 3000 in a 25x15' theater running off a Denon AVR 331 3CI receiver. Instead of swapping everything, I thought this would be decent bang for the buck instead. One reason is to get more mid base frequencies. (I know these are good in-walls but I know there is still plenty of room for improvement w/ box speakers). This time I'm going for a good box speaker. Will cut into the wall so they can be recessed somewhat. Most any size could work I guess. Hoping to not spend crazy $ but would like it to invest enough be an obvious improvement. Someone mind sharing a couple of your top couple speaker recs for this scenerio? I assume leaving the rear 4 in-walls would not be a huge deal? Would be mix-matched but I assumed this not big deal?
Second question relates to investing in an equalizer for the system. The subs are two SVS NSD subs. Vs. relying on the Audyssey w/ the Denon, upgrading to a good equalizer that can offer improvement for the system including the sub responses. Im willing to invest enough here.
thanks so much
