2 Channel Pro Gear Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Who is running pro gear in a dedicated 2 channel setup? Curious what would be a good small pro system for small to mid sized rooms. I have a small 2 channel room 12x12 that currently houses a set of Khorns and a tuba sub. I have owned a pair of KP-301's and 201's loved both of them, now wondering what other configurations would work in this space. Never owned any of the pro subs. So if you were building a small pro only system for a room this size what would you get?

Rockhound,

 

I think you need my 362/682 setup......or at least just one pair of the 362's with the 682's!

The Heresy HIP's are my favorite little pro speaker (especially after all of the Crites upgrades) and they provide plenty of output just need a lot of help in the bass department. Set a pair of these on top of a set of the Ultra 2 subs and I'm not sure one could ask for much more..  :D

You didn't say price so, and you did say medium or small room.

The 396 would be my first choice easily.

my second choice.

 

Now do consider I can't remember models of any others I heard (I think it was a couple more) but surely don't remember the numbers. But  the 396 is very surprising, and the HIP's and a sub would work.

I have two sets of KP-362's

One set at my auto shop, the bay is approx 24x24. They fill the whole shop with sound. Power them with a Carver TFM-42. They just sit on the floor in the corners, I would like to hang them at some point..... was running a couple old subs but the subs took a dump.... but those KP's have some real hard hitting bass imho..... "that chest thumping bass" and tool box ratting.... :lol:

 

The other pair spends most of the time in my daughter old bedroom with all my other audio crapp that not used alot. 

I do bring them out once and awhile to knock the dust off the woofers. In my living room they do have better sound that the ones at the shop. The shop doesn't have the best acoustics lol lol. I have used them on my deck also, but I like my EV's better on the deck. The KP's lack bass outside with those rear ports..... but in the house they pound... I power them with a big Carver at the house, TFM-55.

 

I also would love to find some of those little pro Heresy. There was a set on CL a few weeks back. Guy wanted $600 for em. They were the ones with the aluminium trim around the cabs. Just wasn't the right time....

 

Anyway I like my KP-362's:D

 

MKP :-)

Would you suggest this as a center between two Jubes?

It probably would work as I believe they have the same drivers in the HF section.

If you have the space, I"d put a LaScala bottom with a K402 (best scenario) or a K510 on top

 

If you don't have the space, I'd think it would be a workable choice since it's got the 510 on top.

Space is always the issue. With a set up like @bhendrix that allows a "cubby" for the center then yes, the LaSK402 hybrid is ideal.

Nothing too exotic (and everybody's already mentioned them) but I'll always put in a good word for the KP-201s. They're my favorite speakers by far, I got them quick in a craigslist sale after the forum recommended them. After having Synergy towers, RP-280Fs, and KG 5.2s, the KP-201 turned out to be everything my ears wanted from a speaker.

 

I use them in a small room with a Synergy Sub 12, Emotiva A-300 amp and Adcom preamp. They'd like a little more breathing space, but they still image nicely in the corners.

The 201s are amazingly satisfying. My space for them is very cramped, but they overcome well.

I really enjoy my KP-250's. Nice bass response for a Heresy and great overall balance.

Bill Hendrix @bhendrix turned me on to a pair of KPT-904's so I'm going to give those a run and a KPT-684 sub to go with it. I had planned on making the trip up to St Louis to pickup a pair of 456's but these are closer and are passive which is what I wanted win, win!
