I have picked up two sets of speakers.
for one it's focal 836V + 800V (central) + SW800V (sub) (Will be receiving 2*806V sat later).
The other is a jamo E600 (sat)+ sub 1810 +E660 (front) + central (don't remember the name).
My amplifier is a Denon AVR 3312. (Also have a Yamaha RX-V1600, but AVR is better).
With those two sets of speakers I'd like to make a 7.2 HT.
I got 836V front, the sub focal front, the jamo sub rear, the jamo sat as surround and the Jamo front as surround back.
In fact, the basic Idea was to get all focal front, and all Jamo rear making a standard 7.2.
Result is not that ugly even in hifi, a little weird cause focal is way warmer than jamo with those speakers.
Here are a few things I'm wondering.
1°) I got two central speakers, I can't remember if the best practice is to set the one with the front or with the rear. Plugged the focal for the moment since it is the better sounding one.
Do you think that the placement is good for all my speakers or would you exchange some of them ?
2°) The second question is a bit more complicated.
The two subs run on the same frequencies (32-160, 35-150 with a crossover@110Hz on the amp) but on different power, one is 180W the other is a 350W (I thought that I could compensate with power level and audissey setup).
I know you usually don't use two different subs for a dual sub setup, but having them in the room, you know...
I placed them face to face near the wall behind and in front of the sofa.
Problem is the Jamo is a little weak that way, I think it's better for it to be placed in a corner, which means that if I still want to place them face to face, the line won't cross the sofa.
Would you leave them as it is, change the setup for the corner (still facing each other but not crossing the sofa) or just reverse them so that the powerful one would be rear.
Other possible setup, one in a corner, the other where it actually is, but they won't be facing.
Have a nice day.
