speaker selection

by msimmons168 / October 16, 2004 3:23 PM PDT

I am looking into replacing my surround sound speakers with ceiling speakers. In addition I would like to add at least two ceiling speakers in my dinning area for music. I have a decent reciever that I hope is adequate to power what I am suggesting, it's a Yamaha RX V2200. I can run A&B speakers at the same time on this reciever. Where could I go for references on what choice of speaker that I should be looking for. Or should I be looking for other alterenitives to add music to other parts of my house?

You might want to invest in a reasonable 2 channel amp (check out Niles Audio, Sonance). Look for something in the 35 to 75 watt/channel RMS range. Good amps are usually heavier than cheap amps so make sure you don't buy a 150w amp that is lighter that a good 35 watt amp. Your receiver has multizone capability. This means that you can listen/watch a DVD movie in the main zone and listen to a CD in the 2nd zone independantly. If you look at the back of your receiver, right below the AV inputs is a zone2 audio and video output. You will need the amp for this. There is also a 12volt trigger out of your receiver that you will want to run to the amp (if it is one of my recommendations) that will turn the amp on and off automatically. These amps also have signal sensing and will detect audio if you want to do it that way. Both of the manufacturers make great in-ceiling speakers. You should also think about an inwall volume control or IR sensor in the dining room to give yourself a little local control of the level in that room. snmrenn@yahoo.com
