    Default Polk Audio TL1600 AND DEFINITIVE BP6B ?

    hi guys.first of all i'm sorry for my english.

    5 months ago I bought TL1600.i'm very happy with it. i use marantz sr 7400.the sound excellent...but now i wanna buy a pair of definitive bp6b tower speakers to create a 7.1 system.but i have no idea if they work well together...i'm confussed about Frequency Response Curve.as you see below:

    Polk TL 1600's Frequency Response Curve is 120 Hz - 20 kHz
    Definitive bp6b's 25 Hz - 30 kHz

    Welcome dezan!
    Polk TL uses small satellite speakers with a subwoofer so the subwoofer gets everything below 120Hz.
    Without the sub, those satellites won't be nice to listen to as there won't be any good bass.

    BP6B's go all the way down to around 40 Hz (that 25Hz spec is just in the paper) and pretty good sound even without a sub.
    So you can use BP6B's as front mains and the TL 1600 as everything else.
    I just sold BP6B's last week and they sounded very good for their slim size.

    To add, usually, it's preferred to have a center that matches the fronts, same brand, same drivers/tweeters etc...
    If that's not an option, just try things out and see if it works.
