Hi guys, I worked really hard to save some money for a HT upgrade. I'm looking for Paradigm first here is my setup.

1- Front : Definitive Technology PB 2006TL ( Powered)
2- Center: Definitive Technology CLR 2500 (Powered)
3- Surround: Definitive Technology BPVX (Powered)
4- Back Surround: Definitive Technology: BPX
5- Atmos: RP-140SA
6- Subwoofer: Definitive Technology SuperCube 1
7- AV Receiver: Onkyo TX-NR3030
8- Blu Ray: Denon DBT-3313UD
9- TV: Panasonic Plasma 65"
11- Room: My room size is 2150 Cubic Feet. Room floor Tiles, Walls are Concrete and Ceiling is Gypsum board. My listening distance is 11 Feet from front and center

I feel my front are no match for the rest of my system and I got a great deal on the Paradigm Prestige 95F as fronts and Prestige 55C as Center. I found them for a great price of $4,525.

My Question are they too large for my room, should I buy the 85F & 45C instead.

Kindly advice and as I have saved for the past two years to be able to upgrade.

Many thanks for your help in advance.

I would keep your speakers and get a better sub. The Def Techs are darn good loudspeakers, and for the $$$, the subwoofer upgrade will astound you.

Great, Any recommendation on a good subwoofer that will compliment my setup, FYI, I corrected the info, my fronts are the BP2004TL, not the BP2006TL.

I love Paradigm speakers and as an owner of a 7.1 studio reference set-up I agree that you should keep your Definitive Technology speakers. Your money will be better spent on a new sub or possibly even two... Check out SVS and post back if you have any questions about which one or two subs you should add to your room. You can't go wrong with the PB series.

Based on a $4000 plus budget for new speakers, here are some ideas on subwoofers:

1. Dual Powersound Audio S-3601 - under $4000 delivered.
2. Dual SVS SB-16 Ultras - again, under $4000.
3. Dual Axiom EP800's ... list price is higher, but calling them would get you close to $4000 for duals.
4. Dual Rythmik FV-18 subs - $3400 delivered.

Any of these - even in a single - will make a MAJOR improvement in your system. The "1-2-3-4" is not a ratings orders by a "ranking".
