I can totally picture dual 800 and lfr Center channel plunked right in the middle of your setup there.

Those 800 in the refurb are vertical oriented.

Where in the room is your 800 located right now? Or st least where do you put the 800 when you’re stacked lined that?

The 800 is one foot behind my head right on the back wall. My head is right between the two drivers. The bass out of that thing is liquid, silky and makes me wanna rub myself all over it. It is AWESOME!

I don't care how much Ian thinks the 600 is just as good as the 800. I've got two 600s and four 500s and I'd take one 800 over all those.

I had a grade 10 student listen today who knew nothing about audio systems but she's been playing electric bass for many years. She was astounded with the growling and articulate notes spilling out of that behemoth. She also couldn't believe the stage and imaging she's been missing listening through headphones.

Oh nice. That works right into my symmetrical plan for your room. An 800 up front on Center duty and you’re set.

Are the sub channels all dsp’ed too via the LFR system ? HOow do you manage all the bass so it’s not overloading the room ?

The LFR DSPs manage the front left and right 500 subs.

The QS10s' 500 subs are fed directly from my Onk surround pre-outs. These get the same full range signal as the QS10s. The subs are set to 150Hz using the 500's cross-over knob.

The LFE subs (800, 2x600) are fed from the Onk's .1 channel.

Managing the bass has been experimental. I can't be sure it's been optimized because I lack instrumentation and granular adjustments. But it sure sounds incredible.
