I will ask my question another way.

What is the minimum single sub that would provide a significant improvement in low bass output to supplement a pair of Definitive Tech 8040's in a 20 by 20 foot detached garage. Emphasis on "minimum." If making a significant improvement can't be made on my budget, I will reconsider.

UPDATE 4-17-17: Well, after a bunch of research, i.e. 6 woofer manufacturer web sites, hundreds of sub forum posts, and dozens of Amazon and Crutchfield user revies, I answered my own question "what is the minimum sub to supplement my 8040's in my listening space."

The Hsu VTF-2 MK5. The SVS and Rythmik were contenders. But Hsu had a "B" stock price I couldn't resist. Plus, it fills in the 17 to 35 Hz range that my 8040's either struggle with or totally lack.

I will be testing various sub and amp settings over the next few weeks using the Android app call Audio Tool.

So far this sub is awesome with my system, especially hooked into the sub output of my 31-band equalizer where I can adjust the 20, 25, 31.5, 40 and 60 Hz bands.
I would wait till the used market has a reference sub. They pop up at least monthly for me. I have a notification when they do

Default Studio Monitor 55

I am considering purchasing 3 of these to replace my front speakers (energy c-200, c-50). Would these be an upgrade or equal replacement speaker? If I got these I would move my c-200's to the rear to use as surrounds. How would the c-200 work as surrounds with the 55's?

Another alternative would be the ELAC B6 6.5" bookshelf speakers. Any opinions on those? other speaker suggestions?

Thanks for the info but that would be too much money for me to spend on a pair of speakers. $400 max per pair would be all I'd want to pay.

Default Please help

Hi all, how are you? It's been years since I've been on this thread but needed some advise. I can get a good deal on some BP8's and wanted to know what you thought of my idea. Let me know asap cause I'm trying to jump on this deal asap. Here is my current set up:
F/L BP6
F/R BP6
Center CLR 2002
S/L BP1.2x
S/R BP1.2x
LFE 2 x SC8000
AVR Onkyo 777
Oppo 203 4k Ultra

I can get a good deal on 2 BP8s so I was thinking of getting them, and putting them as the front mains and then moving the BP6's to the surround l & r and put the bp1.2x as the back surround l & r. Or is it better to have a matching pair BP6 for fronts and surrounds? Or just keep what I have?

I'm getting a killer deal on these speakers and they are pretty much brand new. I was gonna get another pair of BP6's but these are too good of a deal to pass up, normally I like to match everything.

Also, what is the difference between the BP6 and BP8 and the BP10? Please advise. Thanks y'all.

Default what are your goals?

Hi jcook9196,
you can look at my Sig and see my set up. i Love Deftech, and sounds like you do too. based on my research the BP8's have just a bit more umph!
i wouldn't do BP6 mixed with BP1.2 for surrounds, that's just me.
i would buy the BP8's and maybe sell your your BP6's?
or keep the BP6's for a separate 2 channel set up?
even though i'm not sure you'd really see a big difference.
you're getting an extra 25 watts of power and dropping an extra 2-3 Hz, which if you have you're SC8000's properly configured you probably won't be able to tell.
just my 2 cents

sorry for the 2nd reply, i titled the last post What are your Goals because i was wondering if you're set up is complete or are you planning to change out more of your speakers or change rooms in the future?
the reason i ask is because it took me a while to complete my system because i was picking out larger more expensive models because i've been planning to build a bigger room. i know we say we are never done always upgrading but i feel like my system is complete, the only other thing i'm changing a bigger screen.
if your system sounds Amazing, and you just want an upgrade i'd go for the BP8's and use the BP6's for something else, they are also about 3" taller

Hi SC-27,
Thank you for the reply. So what surround speakers would you use for the BP6? Are the BP1.2x okay for the BP8? What is the best matching for the BP8? I would like to know the difference between the BP8 and BP10 besides the dome size and height and weight. Also I heard about the BPX? Are those good? But hard to find.

Default demand series

Anyone have experience pairing up a center channel speaker for movies with the DT demand series bookshelves ? I'd like good dialogue and Crutchfield is recommending 9000 series center but I'm concerned about the match with the Demands. The rules seem to indicate 1) use same L/C/R (can't with Demands) 2) use the same tweeters (again - can't) or 3) use the same company speakers (ie like the 9000). Just doesn't seem like the best dialogue is going to come from using the 3rd option.
