I’m looking to install a 7.2 system. In your opinion what would be the best set up using these in wall speakers. Studio 2 8IW Studio 2 5IW Studio 2 6IW I also need 2 subs and a center channel speaker (The center channel and sub can't be in wall)

Asked by: airkong23
Ideally the best surround sound setup would be to have the speakers all around (i.e 6 pieces of the STUDIO 55IW). Since you would like to keep the center channel and subwoofer non-architectural, you ought to stay in the same speaker series/brand. I would advise going with the STUDIO 225C for the center, and for STUDIO 250P or 260P for the sub. Also, make sure your receiver/amp is able to provide adequate power to the surround and center speakers.

What is the difference between Arena 8IC, studio2 8IC or studio2 6ICDT? I am looking to replace my front speakers, I already have two JBL rear and a central speakers.

Asked by: GeorgeR
The ARENA series speakers have different materials used in construction compared to the STUDIO series speakers. The ARENA uses Polycellulose for the speaker while the STUDIO uses Polyplas® for the speaker. The ARENA 8IC and STUDIO 2 8IC have the same input power handling of 100W RMS while the STUDIO 6ICDT has a rated input power handling of 80W RMS.

Different materials - understand. But what is the difference in performance in the Arena and Studio? I am looking at them for surround and back surround.

Asked by: TriCitySam
Apart from the driver materials, both the Studio 2 and Arena architectural speakers are quite the same. However, the Studio 2 series does deliver better high frequency versatility, thanks to the pivoting and level adjusting feature for the tweeter. The pivoting feature allows you to position/direct the tweeter toward the listening area.The level adjusting feature allows you to tune the high frequency (Zero to -3dB) as needed.

Is it possible to do a set of 5 ceiling speakers (Studio 2 8IC for center, L, R, rear L, rear R) to create a sound system for my TV or is this discouraged I. Favor of wall speakers for C, L, R?

Ideally the best surround sound setup would be to have the speakers all around (i.e 4 pieces of the STUDIO 2 8IC). Since you would like to keep the center channel and subwoofer non-architectural, you ought to stay in the same speaker series/brand. I would advise going with the STUDIO 225C for the center, and for STUDIO 250P or 260P for the sub. Also, make sure your receiver/amp is able to provide adequate power to the surround and center speakers.
