    I have the ASW2500 right now with 7NTs in front 1NTs in the rear. The bass is nice and tight but not knock down loud. Anyone have a SVS sub teamed with their setup?
    Thanks

    CDM 1NT+CNT with the SVS 20-39CS. Best combo of speakers and sub imo [​IMG]
    I've heard the B+W subs, SVS is tighter for music and owns it (and pretty much everything else) for movies.

    I've got 603s2 and CC6 in the front, teamed with a 25-31CS. Sounds great!

    jim:

    how do the b&w inwalls mate with the nautilus line? i am considering 804's (or 9nt) with an htm-2 (or cnt) and some b&w inwalls for rear duty. i have thought about the signature 7nt inwalls but $1300 for inwalls is just too much for me to mentally justify. how well do your cwm800's mate with your setup? what weaknesses / limitations / "gripes" do you have in regard to the inwalls you're using. thanks for your input.

    Hi,
    I don't know yet if i qualify as B& W owner with SVS since i don't have the actual SVS yet. I ordered it last week, it has not been delivered to start the long journey to the Philippines. [​IMG]
    I'm going to pair it with my N805's, HTM2 and soon to be added 601 S3.[​IMG] I can wait to have them.

    Kevin,

    The CWM800s are very good in most respects. Obviously they do not have the Nautilus tweeter or its tube. On the other hand, test tones sound quite similar to the front channels and I've even noticed a decent "side image" when listening to the Steely Dan Gaucho DTS CD.

    However, if I had it to do over again, I would not use in-wall speakers, mainly because of the lack of flexibility. I'm stuck with my surrounds where they're mounted (back wall) When I expand to a 7.1 setup, I'll probably go with the CDM SNTs for the sides.

    thanks for the info jim. i only have a 5.1 system and have no intention of upgrading to 7.1 (even with the fiance would agree). my rears have always been in the same location and i find the effects very good. i need something wall mountable and i don't care for the snt (it doesn't even have the nautilus tweeter) so it might just be inwalls for me. thanks for the insight.

    Kevin,

    One other thing. On very loud surround effects, the metal covers on the CWMs may rattle. Not to worry, as a little foam weather stripping will discretely fix 'em right up.

    A Mirage BPS 400 dual 12inch woofers powered by a 400 watt (1600 watts peak) will match perfectly with your system.
