Hi , A kind person on the US side knows him and asked him for me.
He said it's tough choice but he'd give the edge to the Arendals if you want more dynamic sound.
I can't help think though is that 9 months later he has kept with the B&W. Maybe its a preference thing. Annoyingly impossible for me to compare.
Looking at REL subs 1505 and a 1205 how do the compare to the SVS and monolith ?
Thanks for the links price might be the decider.
Pretty sure I didn't get a reccomendation on what size speakers to get. They didn't say it was a problem when I mentioned possibly get the full size towers up front recently though.@dts197 probably remembers which size room Arendal recommended the full fat 1723?
Below is member dts197 1723S system with dual PB16U in 5x4 room! It`s not really small, huh?
AVO has new refurb units from SVS with full warranty and in mint condition. Only outside box "damaged". They go for 1279£ so good saving!
The PB-3000 delivers reference subwoofer performance at a breakthrough price. Features all-new, first-ever 13-inch high-excursion SVS driver and 800 watts RMS, 2,500+ watts peak power Sledge amplifier with fully discrete MOSFET output for crushing bass bewww.audiovisualonline.co.uk
I would re-think the poweramp choice unless you own it already. You could save some easily with Emotiva example.

No, but i`m looking the smaller ones at later date. New house has smaller room, but still neighbours.Thanks real bargains to be had.
I have 3.6m width to play with looks like it will be a wall of sound. Save and monolith They are actually similar size just totally different weight.
Something appealing about a 75kg subwoofer.
Even the 1723s dont exactly look small. Think I’ll have to measure it though. Was planning an 8ft screen.
I’ll look into that power amp main reason for it is playing my vinyl.
Do you run the Arendal setup ?
Think it going to be x2No, but i`m looking the smaller ones at later date. New house has smaller room, but still neighbours.
Monoliths are real deal no doubt and for such good price! Amazing!
At last! It's here! Our review of Monoprice's monster subwoofer, the Monolith 15" THX Ultra! This 130 lb. beast might look like it's all muscle, but there's at least as much brains as there is brawn.www.audioholics.com
I got a reply from Arendal
They saying the additional cost is UK VAT + 2,5% which I pay to DHL.
Space wise they said:
Usually we recommend to put the Towers 20-30 cm from the back wall and similar to the side walls. Toe in.
We have several tips regarding the placement in the Handbook.
Must be good having those PB16U double front. Do they work well in your room ?
Thanks. I've actually just decorated in here this week and managed to move the surrounds back and down a little. So I'm sat at my preferred distance, with the surrounds a touch behind me. Hard to capture the colour in a photo.Always loved your setup
Are those S towers ? For some reason they look so tiny in the pic.Thanks. I've actually just decorated in here this week and managed to move the surrounds back and down a little. So I'm sat at my preferred distance, with the surrounds a touch behind me. Hard to capture the colour in a photo.
The wall keeps whispering projector to me.

I wasn't aware there was a difference. As far as I know, I used what was called the spikes kit. I think they're really good, although I still have used REW to see how it all looks.Oh I know why they look a tad smaller .. you are using the rubber floor things instead of the spikes ? Also how do you like the pb16s with the arendals?
Yea there are two options in the spike kit .. rubber ones and the larger metal spikes that sit in the little metal discs if you are on a wood floor. I originally used the rubber ones but Arendal said the metal ones are what they recommend even on wood floor .. just use the included little discs under the spike. The speaker sits higher as well.I wasn't aware there was a difference. As far as I know, I used what was called the spikes kit.
