    Need Help Please - Testing Speakers.

    Hello Everyone, So I have a chance to buy a set of, USED Def Tech BP-8 or Def Tech BP-10's locally from someone. He does have power I can use there, but no Amp. Any thoughts on a way I can test the speakers to be "somewhat" certain they work well? I have a 7.1 Receiver but I would really...

    Using two Centers as front left & Right

    Cool, thank you John. I think I can "McGuyver" the mounts a bit, so the speakers get positioned vertically. What you said about the sound dispersion being better vertically is more important to me than having an easier installation. Thank you again John, really appreciate your expertise.

    Using two Centers as front left & Right

    Thank you JohnRice & iraweiss, really appreciate the info. :rolling-smiley: :rolling-smiley: it's crazy, I hadn't even noticed the angled sides. So the wall mounts I have do allow me to position them horizontally. However, just to be sure, there is no drawback to positioning them...

    Using two Centers as front left & Right

    Thank you everyone. Appreciate the help. I asked about orientation cause a couple places I read: "The main difference is that a speaker that's been produced specifically as a horizontally-positioned center will need to have its tweeter rotated 90 degrees when positioned vertically...usually...

    System setup & Speaker help Please. Thank you!

    Thank you very much Al.Anderson. I appreciate your input. I would love to setup the 7.1.2 you mentioned, however the small print of the reciever stipulates that I can only do a 5.1.2/5.2.2 or a 7.1/7.2 but not 5.1.4/5.2.4 or 7.1.2/7.2.2. I am using a subwoofer, a Defintive Powerfield...

    System setup & Speaker help Please. Thank you!

    Hello I would appreciate some help. So I followed [Dave's] suggestions and setup the Definitive Technology Pro Cinema 60's as a 5.1 system with the VSX-1131 Receiver. Got rid of the other (mismatched in respect to brand) speakers. I then made an impulsive purchase (open box so much...

    System setup & Speaker help Please. Thank you!

    Thank you Dave. Although the receiver setup allows me to chose crossovers individually for each speaker, I have no clue how much that actually fixes, if anything. And more importantly, the part of your explanation " While you can tweek the digital eq that will not change the sound you get...

    System setup & Speaker help Please. Thank you!

    Thank you Dave, much appreciated. Since the ProCinema are from a 5.1, if I wanted 5 1.2 or 7.1, would even purchasing 2 additional speakers not be an option due to "tonal" issues you mentioned? Additionally, excuse my ignorance, but can "tonal" issues be mitigated at all via calibration or...
