Best Heritage Speakers for 5.2 Home Theatre Setup

Recommended Posts

I currently have two La Scalas for fronts, a Cornwall for center, two Cornwalls for side surrounds and a Paradigm Reference Servo-15 subwoofer for my 5.1 home theatre setup.

 

I am in the process of getting five La Scalas and two JTR Captivator S2 subwoofers for my 5.2 home theatre setup.

 

Your take?

Oh, man! That is going to be one incredible system. I have heard a couple JTR subs (can’t remember the model) and they showed me what true low-end could be!

La scalas as your LCR and your surrounds... You must have great space! La scalas and cornwalls as surrounds seems in my mind a bit much. Personally, I don't think surrounds need to be big speakers, but if you have the space and the money, more power to you! It will for sure be a great setup. Not well versed on JTR subs, but from reading @K5SS answer, I guess they must be good.

I've heard a couple of L/C/R LS setups.  They are seamless and as good as anything I've ever heard, including my local cinema.  The only problem I see is having a pair of LS in your ear as side surrounds.  There may be a preferred way to integrate them but I don't know what that would be. 

 

@mustang guy has a six LS setup, 3 front, 3 rear.  The are in a medium gym sized room and his setup sounds pretty good.

 

 @Youthman in Plant City has an incredible HT setup, anchored by La Scala L/C/R.  You might reach out to him for advice on setup.  He has his really dialed in.

I think that would be a KILLER system. I should be getting some JTR speakers in for review in the next month or so. Looking forward to hearing them for the first time

I had (3) LaScalas across the front, Cornwall sides and Heresy rears. (2) RSW-15 subs. It was pretty good ;)

 

but hate me if you want, I prefer the change I made with RF 7 fronts and sides, RC7 center and rears (same subs). Maybe it's the 7 identical tweeters, I don't know. But I actually prefer it. 

 

LaScala II all day long for 2 channel though

The best Ht I have ever heard was "IndyKlipschfans" Rodger Chase in Indy, he had an all LaScals HT.

Shoot, either one of those setups are most enviable. I bet the RF7 setup is something to behold. What are you driving all of this with, what AVR or amps?

B&K Ref 200.7/Onkyo 5509 Processor. I have all I'll ever need in terms of audio.  So happy to no longer have the desire to chase the "unobtainable".

RC-7 better vs a LaSacala as a center 😲

I would only prefer 3 front and 2 rear in my setup.

I had five Heresies in my master bedroom home theatre system.  In my opinion they are excellent considering only 2/3 of the space is being used.

Heresies are like Baby La Scalas, I have found!!

I want my second one BACK! :-) I;m gonna have my La Scalas out front, and my Heresies slightly elevated in the rear! And I will be WAILING on my Djembe in their midst! :-)
