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.

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.

What’s the difference between this speaker and the”arena 8ic”?

Asked by: Blat
The only difference of the Studio 2 8IC with the Arena is that it has Pivoting tweeters that let's you target audio directly to your desired listening location and the Tweeter Audio Level Adjustment The High-Frequency Level control lets you fine-tune the speaker’s high frequency output to compensate for various acoustical environments.
