    A bunch of old names were "banned" in the forum upgrade. I forget why, seems like something got botched to me but whatever. They weren't really banned, though. It was just how inactive accounts got handled.

    If you want your old account back, send a PM to @KennethSwauger and he can get you straightened out.
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!

    biggest concern is that I would have to move my components for a larger screen.

    Nice room J. I have one small suggestion - get some absorption panels to put on the wall next to the RT55's. This should help with extending the soundstage to the left/right even more and with the tonal balance of the speakers.

    That is on my list of things to add along with bass traps after I finish painting.

    The back wall, is that an actual black or charcoal?

    you know that danged black paint's hard to source.
    Probably pastel black.

    Micro analytics of the photo shows the color to be a deep charcoal, but not a true black... the search continues.

    Nice "tone", too.
    Plus, they were meant to speak through a movie screen. Poifect for a projector system!

    Not yankin' the OP's chain per se -- your setup is beautiful.

    I am just being a smart aleck in general terms.

  • Np, the cs400i is plenty loud, but you can always go bigger. CS1000 if can be found.
  • The important question I'd like answered is: what are the show times ?
    And do you offer a Senior Citizen Discount on tickets ?

    Very nice.

    Honestly, I don't think searching for a cs1000 is worth it, when you can get something like a Martin Logan Dynamo subwoofer (the original version with speaker line level inputs and outputs) for $200 or less shipped on eBay. Run the cs400i through the dynamo (it has a built-in 70hz high pass) and you have a killer full range center channel. I have done this with a lesser sub and it was awesome. On killer bass scenes like in the Dark Knight that sub would pound!

    I personally really like that series of speakers. I would probably just upgrade subs and call it a day. But if you are going to upgrade, go with the mains. This would be my choice out of current polks: https://slickdeals.net/f/10492764-open-box-polk-lsi-bundle-pair-m705-floorstanding-midnight-mahogany-m704-center-midnight-mahogany-1150-free-shipping?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

    Thank you. Will take a look. My biggest issue is that towards the 3rd row my guest say they cannot hear the center as well. Plus trying to decide if I want to do atmos or just keep what I have with front and rear presence speakers.
