  • Anyone with a Front High or Front Wide speakers setup?

    Hey everyone, I'm still in the planning stages and I've been looking into the whole 9.1 or 11.1 setup. I'm just wondering if anyone has a pro/sho-10 9.1 or 11.1 setup and what they think. Thanks.

    I'm not using CHT speakers, nor have I heard them before. I'm running DT speakers exclusively in a 9.2 setup.

    I can comment on heights though. For years I ran a 7.2 setup. With FL, FR, C, SR, SL, and RL and RR. And just recently about 4 months ago finally got an AVR capable of running wides/heights. I went with heights due to just having the optimal setup to allow as such. And I really enjoy the added dimension of sounds from having those speakers up there. I have them about 9 feet high from my 10 foot high ceiling. Even when there's nothing really happening that high, just normal movie viewing, it really helps broaden the front sound stage. It will sound more centered than it did before. And then of course when you have something actually up there like rain, helicopter etc, it sounds awesome.

    If you can allow such a setup I'd highly recommend it. I'd love to add wides to but just can't. :(

    Hope that helps at all. :salute:

      It does, thanks. I'm in the position where I have to think about wiring right now. I think that I'm just going to wire for everything and if I use it, great. If not, it's there if I ever change my mind. The added expense is outweighed by the ability to expand if I want to.

          I just did some quick measurements and it looks like the only thing that I could do is a front wide setup. I have to ask him if he likes it. The Panasonic 65 vt50 on an 11x7 wall doesn't leave much room for much else!

            I took a look at the pics from Husker's thread. It looks like he used sho-6 prototypes, which I assume are no longer available. I worry that the sho-10's are just too big for front wides.
