Current setup- Denon avr-s720w, LG 4k player and a roku ultra 4k, want the nvidia shield. LG 75" 4k led tv. Ac infinity on the Denon. Google assistant. R+L are the polk audio monitor 70, center is a polk monitor 60ii, dual polk audio psw505s, side surrounds polk monitor 40ii and atmos speakers are the polk omen3 satellite speakers. Reference set at 75 db. Subs bumped up about 3 db. I'm just not happy with it. Think I need better subs first. Any ideas or suggestions?

5.2.2 setup no amps. Just what the avr has to offer

Placement?
Spread it out so you get an actual wide front stage and maybe move subs to more optimal spots. Its very very bunched together now so everything probably sound like its coming from the same fairly tight space.

Better subs would be a good first purchase. Just from that picture it doesn't look like you have a lot of room to spread things out. Do you mainly watch TV/movies? Your speakers seem fine. I suppose if you wanted to upgrade the AVR with a new TV that each have HDMI 2.1/eARC that would be a good option.

Yes unfortunately for this little house I'm renting right now that's all the room I have. But I do see how that will help later on. What do yall think about my decision with center speaker vs. A traditional center

So far I'm leaning towards the dual svs pb2000 pro for like $1,700.00 but need to make sure thats the way I want or is best. Not going to keep it that bunched up once I move to the next house

I think you need to do something about your sub situation. Also, all those speakers packed together like that have to be causing some issues. I don't think a traditional center is going to do much outside of aesthetics for you right now. You really need to figure out a way to position your speakers and subs more optimally. That's going to help more than any upgrade. That said, the glaring weak link in your chain are those subs.

SVS is awesome. They make great speakers too. I'm with you on wanting matching speakers but a good sub is a good sub. I think you get some more bang for your buck with HSU. Right now tho, SVS is replacing their PB/PC2000 series with the Pro series and have dropped the price. I think a pair of those would be plenty for a small to medium, or even getting into larger rooms.



Holy crap. I just now saw SVS is upping their customer service game with a 60 day trial period and automatic refunds!

SVS would be an excellent option. I have a 505 somewhere in my house. It’s just not good... but for the money....
Anyway, yeah the single best thing you can do that’s free is move those speakers out. Subs too. Can you share a wider shot of the whole room? Iirc you have your .2 speakers too low as well. My memory ain’t what it used to be though...
One thing going for you for sure is three towers in front!!!

Just to give you some very cost effective and still aesthetically pleasing ideas for organizing your stuff. I wouldn't mind having any one of these in my setup.
