Surround Sound Speaker Systems

AV123 ELT 525 Surround Sound Speaker System


Design and Setup

I configured the system in two-channel with towers, two-channel with monitors, and surround sound with dual subs, only the MFW-15, and full range with no subs. When switching back and forth between my Paradigm Studio 20V.3’s I noticed that I was constantly turning my receiver up after reconnecting the AV123 system. The average efficiency of the system is ~85 dB which means that it will take a substantial amount of amplifier power to fill a large home theater room with these speakers. I would not try to run them with an amplifier that puts out much less than 100 wpc with all channels driven.
