My brother-in-law recently gave me a
pair of Edge Audio bookshelf speakers. I've tried to attach a picture. I
understand that Edge Audio is the predecessor to Aperion. I have a couple of questions about integrating the speakers
into my current system. I now have two Verus Forte towers as my
right/left fronts, a Verus Grand center, and Verus Forte satellites for my
right/left surrounds (with a Hsu VTF-15H as the sub). Should I use the
larger Edge Audio speakers as the right/left surrounds and move the Verus
satellites to the back in a 7.1 configuration or should I use the Edge speakers
in the rear? I am concerned about timber matching here as well as overall
sound levels. I'm using a Denon 2112ci with Audyssey MultiEQ XT if that matters (I know the Aperion folks frown upon room correction systems). Secondly, how can I mount the Edge Audio speakers?
Unlike the Verus satellites (which have bolt holes for hanging brackets),
the Edge Audio speakers have no hanging bracket holes so if I am to put them on
a wall or drop from a ceiling, I will have to drill holes into the speaker
cabinet (any concerns about screwing brackets onto the speakers?). Thanks for any tips.
If it were me I would use the Edge Audio speakers, or the 502s as I call them, as your rear surrounds and then use the Fortes as your side surrounds. Since the side surrounds are utilized more often than the rears, it will help keep things more closely timbre matched to use the Fortes in the side position.
As for mounting there really aren't a whole lot of options for them, but here is a side clamp style mount that we used to sell that will work. It will not require you to drill into the cabinet which I don't recommend doing if you can help it.
