Would upgrading from the sm55s to the bp6 be worth it. I have looking at reviews and i am not sure.

How could anyone tell you with so little to go on? Besides, you're the best judge since it's your setup and your money :) What do you think you'd gain with the BP6 model over your SM55s?

I don’t know if the bp6 would be better all around. I don’t have experience with tower speakers so I don’t know if these would change much for my system. If I got them I would probably take one of the sm55s and use it as a center which would be much better then my ProCenter 1000 from definitive. Would you think that the bp6 is a good upgrade path?

Couldn't tell you much about DT speakers. Have heard nice things about the SM55/65s and their bi-polar speakers, don't think I've heard either (or they made no particular impression on me if I did). Knowing more about your room, speaker setup, and use might help understand what you're looking for. Why not just three SM55/65 across the front as another idea?

I have a 19 x 9 ft room. Surrounds are sr9040 bipolar speakers. Pro sub 1000 and two pro monitor 1000s as Dolby Atmos top middle speakers. I was planning on the 3 sm55s but came across a good deal on the bp6s.

Personally that DT "sub" looks to be the weak link at this point, I'd get a better sub to start.

Completely agree... I was quickly dissuaded from pursuing DT subs by a DT salesperson!... He said an SVS PB1000 would be way better, and a PB 2000 epic in comparison. He was the first person to inform me about DTs inflated specs on output and FR.

I can imagine moving the sm55 to center and adding bp6 as mains will still require a decent sub. You might replace the sub with a HSU VTF2 mk5.
