Hi,

A buddy of mine is looking to do in wall in his basement home theater. The area is for the home theater is 18ft wide, 25ft long and 9 feet high. He is looking at focal 300 and PSB W-LCR2 for LCR setup.Budget is around $2500 for the LCRs.

Do the gurus here feel that one of those set of speakers will do the job well or are there other speakers in the same price range that would be better then the above two. I also recommended the KEF ci4100qls as I have been happy with those but somehow feel that focal and PSB may be better as my HT area is a little smaller than his.

Also whats the best place to buy these speakers as online very few retailers show up.

Please suggest.

Revel W893. Easily.

3 Way design with an 9” woofer designed for flat listening window response. I don’t think much can touch these.

$1000 each, but you could easily find a dealer to discount them 20% or more to bring the price to $2400 or lower.

Thank you.

Also noticed the triad bronze 4 LCR in the same price range. How they rank when compared to revel, focus and psbs listed above?

Triad makes some good stuff, and will not be a wimp

You could Atlantic Technology to the list, their THX systems are really nice.

+1 for Triad.

Their IW Silver LCRs would be a great choice for the room size you mentioned. Depending on your dealer you could get close to your budget. Triad will also paint match the grills to your wall color.


Let me know if I can help.

I auditioned the paradigms CI pro P3 LCR and also the focals electra IW1003 BE speakers yesterday. They were being driven by an Anthem mx720 avr and 1 svs 16 inch sealed sub. I loved the clarity on the paradigms. Focals were not as clear. They felt too bright.
