    Greetings all! Which would be the better speaker for my situation? I have a Denon 3801 and will have a SVS 20-39cs+
    next week. Since my Denon apparently does not have adjustable crossover points, or I'm an idiot who couldn't find them, would the 6.1 be a waste if I were to set the mains to small and let the SVS handle everything below 80hz?
    This will be my first subwoofer so I'm used to letting the mains handle the bass. I just don't want to lose the oompf
    around 60-80hz from my mains. Please help![​IMG]

    If you are going to go with a sub (specialy an SVS) then you wont need the 6.1's. I have an SVS 20-39CS and it is more than enough bass for me. My room is pretty large too. I have just ordered the Divas 5.1's, 2.1's and C3, I didnt go with the 6.1's because of the SVS sub. Good luck on what ever you decide.

    First of all, whichever option you go for, don't worry about losing anything in the 60-80Hz range. I'm more than certain both speakers can go down far enough to make the crossover at 80Hz a non-issue. The SVS will be able to satisfy all your bass needs. Just set the Divas to Small and be happy.

    That said, I would wager that the 6.1 will sound better than the 5.1 (not taking price into consideration) because of the dedicated mid-range woofer, which might give you a more articulate sound. And yes, you will get deeper, more powerful bass. But as I said before, your SVS ought to handle the bass very well by itself.
