Talk me out of it!
InVeNtOr posted a topic in Home TheaterHello fellow K-heads! i've had a complete 7.1 setup (RF-7/Emotiva) , dual amps, total blow your hair back set up.... i had to move and box it up for several years.... i've recently started back over but i can only do a 3.1. it's set up, tuned in, and still sounds good when i run the THX demo. here's my thoughts...i'm thinking of putting the entire 7 series away. i already have 1 amp, and 4 RS-42's boxed up. i doubt i can sell my set up due to all the mods. my mods don't come with a "name brand" just me, my word, and the caps i chose (which differ from the norm). i'm thinking of going with a G42 because it's very clean and i can mount it below my future 75" TV. i would leave my entertainment system alone, because i would still use my UMC-1 with XPA-3. i know, the XPA is a little overkill, but it's what i have. this way i can still use my Sunfire Sub and not need to do any additional cabling. my concern... the G42 will sound so much worse than the 7 series. i've never heard one but i know it can't compete with any reference speaker. i was also thinking of 3 G-28's, but they are $350 each. just a bit much for what you get. i know that series is about performance with a certain look (which i like), but i don't want to run all the wires in the walls. (i know, silly reason). so what does everyone think? is this just a dumb idea? will i regret the switch? oh, the G42 doesn't come cheap. it's $550 new from an authorized dealer. (Sound Distributors) posting a pic of the 3.1. it's not "finished" but it gets the point across. the 42" looks super small, and No, i wouldn't normally set a TV on a RC-7, but i really have no choice. the speaker wire is just Mil Spec 12awg twisted pair. i had it laying around i knew it would "work".
