I have just recently finished building my home and had everything done for a 7.2 home theater system. I bought a Denon AVR-X4000 to push my Definitive Technology speakers. I actually bought the DefTech BP8060 5 speaker system. I am going to add in the side speakers and subs (if advised) here soon, but one step at a time... Here are my concerns and questions...
Since this is my first system, I must confess, I know a little, but I am unaware of what I do not know... I dont know anything about Ohms or any of that, but I know I like DefTechs, and after reading the reviews on the X4000, with 125w per channel, I am off to a good start that will make me happy (Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... i know some people dont like DefTech). Can you guys help me as to how I need to set up my system to get the most out of my speakers? I asked a Denon Rep and he said that even though the X4000 is a great receiver, those 8060's can handle much more. So what do I do to get these speakers to where they need to be at for a SAFE optimal level of quality sound? Also, this is a 7.2 system. Can / should I put in subs when these towers already have subs in them? Im on the lines of I love feeling CLEAN/CRISP bass. Sound you can feel deep... The towers are amazing, but a little extra clean bass couldn't hurt right? Well with hooking that up in the receiver, am I robbing my towers of their power? I am in total darkness here.
I know this thread is a little everywhere, I just want to turn to some people that appreciate audio like me, but have the knowledge to help me get my system to where I want it to be. Clean, rich, loud audio that will not damage my speakers.
Also any advice for the side speakers to complete the 7.2 would be appreciated. I was thinking Polk RC85I, but then again, it would be ncie to keep it all DefTech
Thanks in advance guys!
