  • Re: Beolab 3500 as rear surround

    Well after much consideration I picked up a used lab3500 for next to nothing. Downloaded the manual and slowly set about taking the unit apart. Was quite easy to remove the amplifier and other circuits and then install two seperate crossovers and adjust the wiring. Whilst they may not be perfect the crossovers are 2-way sending >3kHz to the tweeters and a 12db cut off rated for 200w. Hooking them up to the denon avr amp means I can adjust the volume of each channel to match the volume of the lab1s

  • Re: Beolab 3500 as rear surround

    Its one of the options I looked at but cant seem to find the satalitles available. The thing is Im already running 2x 10" enclosed subs with 10" passive radiators so have more than sufficient bass/sub base. All the speaker output on the x3400 is via preout so the built in amp isnt being used. The location of where the rear/surround speakers need to go will make it difficult to get thicker rca cables through which again pushes me down the passive route and using the under utilised amp of

    considering lost of options including Beolab 4s, 4000s as well as 15s. The thing is there is no power in the area to run active which is why I was considering using either ceiling mounted passives or stripping a 3500 and running it as two seperate passives with the amp in the x3400.

  • Beolab 3500 as rear surround

    Bit of a strange one which Im hoping someone may be able to offer some practical advice on as weve moved recently and the layout of the new house has caused a few problems. Current set up is Beolab1s as main speaker fed through a denton x3400. Previously I was using lab 6000s as which worked well but the layout of the new house means there is no way to physically mount speakers on the rear wall due to a slightly offset open staircase running up it!. The original layout of the room had a wall between

    May have stumbled across another option Beolab 12s as they are virtually flush with the wall

    Thanks for the responses so far. Unfortunately because a staircase runs up the back wall, anything wall mounted would be likely to get knocked (it would need to be on the stairs) and the second speaker would need to be mounted on the stairs and also on the wall in front of the stairs in order to space the speakers and this means it would stick out into a another access area. The only option I can think of that gets around this is to go ceiling mounted, but again because of the location of stairs

  • Rear surround sound speakers

    Hi all, After some great responses from this group I sourced some Beolab 6000 and wall mounts to use as rear speakers and match in with my Beolab 1s at the front. Weve recently moved house and have remodelled the living room removing a few wall to make it more open plan. The downside of this is that the rear wall of the living room has stairs running up it so i have no area on the wall to mount the 6000s. So Im now looking for some different rear surround speakers that will fit and as the wall has

    Quick update. There is no need to make any mods to the brakets. the front ring that holds connects the speaker to the wall support has two screws in the back face. You can effectively remove these turn the ring over and resecure. this puts the logos the right way up and the speakers can then be wall mounted hanging down.
