    Hi all,

    I'm quite new to this stuff and I was wondering if I should go for these speaker.

    Ikon-audio
    CM6200
    Description: 2 ½ - Way Dual 6.5" Powered Tower Loudspeaker
    with side-firing 10" sub
    Tweeter: 1" Resolution Soft Dome
    Midrange: Dual 6.5"
    Woofer: 10"
    Impedance: 8 ohm
    Sensitivity: 92dB
    Power Handling: 200 watts
    Frequency Response: 37hz-20kHz
    Amplifier Power: 200 watts

    My main worry is if it's a good thing to get the sub in your colums. There are no RCA plug behind the speakers. So the sub will be feed with the wire that feed the mid and high. The only thing the sealer told me I would need to do is to deactivate the sub pre-out from my amplifier.

    Can this be a good technology?
    Would it be compatible with the dolby 5.1 or higher?
    Would it be best to get a separatesub that would use the sub pre-out.

    The reason I'm looking at these is that I want a great sound when I'm listening to music as well as movie.

    My amp is a Sherwood R-863-T.
    Do you have any proposition as which s^peaker I should get?

    thank you for your helps.

    Mike

    In the specs it says powered tower, so the 10" may be powered. It doesn't need to have a preamp input to be able to use signal from the speaker level inputs. The incoming power will be used for the mid/highs and the bass driver will use the signal it needs but not the power from your receiver.

    But will it be compatible with the Dolby 5.1 or should I go with a separate Set like then CM650 with a sub like the CM10S? So that later I could add a central and to back.

    Waht is the best to do both music and movie?

    thanks

    I don't understand what you're asking? If it accepts speaker level input, it is compatible with pretty much anything. In nearly all cases, I still recommend going with a separate sub for a system that will do both music and movies. For a stereo music only system, a tower with a built in sub is not a bad idea, but for movies, the impact of a good sub is usually best.

    That's what I was wondering if it was better to go with a separate component instead of in the same unit for the sub.

    So it probably best to go with all separate for music and movie.

    Thanks John
