This is my current setup right now. Still using Sony rear speakers for surround. Don't have budget yet to change to Mission.

My room has limited space. So, have to place the sub and front speakers like that.

Do you feel boomy as the sub near the wall & Speaker port (back side) too near wall too.

Not so boomy. I just use the ACCUEQ calibration that comes with Onkyo to ensure the sound is just right. Although this calibration tool not so accurate. It suits my ears. The Sub volume i adjust manually.

I prefer a bigger room but living in a condo, this is what i can do with what i have. This is actually my man cave. The living room is just to watch Astro and for guests.

Your sub can move to other location as sub can be place almost anywhere the sound from sub is non directional

I have a 20-year old Mission 753 with a pair of Arcam Delta 290/290P collecting dust inside my store room. Bought the speakers and amp in 95 when I was a student in the UK.
Last time Missions speakers were quite popular among Malaysian students studying in the UK.

Any idea if there is any hifi shops in KL that can resurrect these old speakers to new lease of life?
I know of a hifi shop in SG that can modify the 753 by chnaging the capacitors, cross-overs and internal wiring to keep the sound "up to date" with the competition.

Hey WTA did you manage to fix your mission 753. Where?

I got a pair of mission 753 with one side missing tweeter.

Hey, if you still haven't fixed it I can try taking a look at the speakers. If only the tweeters are faulty then its relatively easy to replace.

your tweeters are probably blown... try to play them loud, then cover the tweeter, see if the sound changes, it does not change much, means you know its blown... I have the same exact problem on one side.... perhaps we can hunt together. I am looking around for ppl who can repair the tweeter

The tweeter so easily kaput ?
I don't play my music very loud.. That's why I suspect electronics rather than a blown tweeter
And it's exactly the same on both sides.. Tried different amplifier already too..
Do update if u found a Doctor that's able to remedy the situation.. Or at least diagnose what's the exact problem...
Then can start hunting for exact replacement parts
Gonna try playing them loud tomoro and cover the tweeter as u suggested ..

The 753 tweeter has ferrofluid and dries out over many years. This locks up the tweeter voice coil

Sending the 753 over tomoro to have him check them out

Sent my 753 over to repair man
Preliminary testing shows tweeters still working
So it is most likely a crossover issue.. Will definitely be much cheaper than sourcing and replacing tweeters

Faulty crossovers are uncommon. Bad connections to the tweeter do happen.
Muffled tweeters, where the dome has not been pushed in by a kid, is often the ferrofluid pooled at the bottom and congealed into glue. Blown tweeter coils go open and don't work at all.

Mr Oh knows what he is doing.
