Manu paji, you are getting all these big bad speakers:clapping: and subwoofers, but why are you still sticking with the onkyo 5100 avr??

Its high time you went in for a much more powerful avr!:yahoo:

Are you using the two sub set up even now with the tsi 500?

Answers:

1. Pro FX website mentions depth as 14.75 inches. You will need to measure with front grill on. Profx - Advanced Audio Solutions

2. With your new crossover setting of 40HZ in your AVR, the sub will play freq only below 40HZ. Your towers handle frequency from 40HZ onwards. So you may have selected correct setting for now, more over you can hear it's sounding good...

But what actually you need to do is get a more powerful AVR to drive these monsters.

My question:
Isn't this speaker little too big to be installed in your car?:eek:hyeah:

Not if you remove the steering wheel. Fits in the front row ... :D

Cheers

Why not install on back seat instead?
Or you think 2 towers will be installed? One on back seat and one on front seat?
I was confused because I saw only one tower:D:D

I don't have much idea on AVRs. 6 months back I was once impressed with Pioneer 1018 selling for around 32K in grey market.

I think so. That's how we always used to listen to stereo.
In Onkyo AVR even if you choose "Stereo" it plays 2.1:confused:

no brother when i choose stereo only tsi 500s play not two polk subs :)

thats because of your crossover settings for your front speakers. Try listining to your speakers with the crossover setting of Full band for the front speakers and turning the double bass on,also set the Lef frequency to 120hz, in this mode the low frequency would go to your front speakers as well as your subwoofers and you would hear double bass.

The other way of doing this is to turn the subwoofer option in your amplifier to off or none then instead of connecting your subwoofer to the sub pre out, connect them by running a pair of speaker wire from avr's front speakers terminal to your sub speaker in terminal and then connect your front speakers from the speakers out terminal of your sub and use the crossover settings on the back of the subwoofer to optimise the bass settings.

Why cant you try separate monoblock poweramps for powering the front L/C/R and the rest with the avr. I think this will be better than another avr. I think you can get get good ones in 50K to 1L range. Experts comment required about the pricing. Also what are you going to do with the existing towers, try for a separate 2 channel music setup or use it for surrounds.

my 595 onkyo has a DIRECT mode that runs only L/R speakers and in STEREO mode it kicks up the sub as well.

regards
