    Ok my Budget just got alot tighter on my theater, Just found out I have to put a new septic system in at this house I bought so....well nuff said..... I was looking at Paradigm and Polks but after some research I came accross the Fluance Speaker system, Now I will be adding the Bi-Polars to this as well as a subwoofer since I am going with a 7.1 system. My question is how will this set up handle a room that is completely soundproof with measurments of 22' deep by 18' wide and a ceiling height of about 7' 8". first row of seating will be about 12 feet back from the front speakers. I wish I didnt have to mess with this dang septic but it would be dumb to have a great theater in a house that smells like poopy

    I guess, it depends on what your willing to spend on speakers. and what your running them with. I have the SX-HTB's and I love them. They arent flawless, but for the price they are superb, and suit my needs extremly well. I would think they would due well in the environment your talking about, though I dont know anything about the Fluance Subs. Sorry I cant be of much help

    Travis I would go with the separates like I did. but if you want the packaged deal I would go with the
    AV-HTB. I love my speakers. They sound great. Movies and for music. I went with separates for the different center channel. The AV-SC sounds smooth and it does not sound muffled like some low cost speakers. They are very well built. if you are going with a 7.1 let me know I have three AV-BP2 for sale if you want them(smartinez@vmetro.com). If you are married then you know why I'm selling them. WAF!!! I hate to part with them. I loved the way they sounded with my sacds. You will not regret the purchase of Flaunce speakers.

    My room is about the same size as yours - not as wide (13ft) but the ceiling is 12ft. (but definitely not soundproof). I have the SX-HTB. I replaced the center with the AV-SC and added the AV-BP2's for the side surrounds. Add to this an old Velodyne CT-80.

    This system is more than enough for my room. I would not hesitate to get this setup again. I'd say get it, and when you get your poop together, upgrade (sorry, couldn't resist). [​IMG]

    I think I am going to go with the SX HTB and add the Bi-Polars to the deal for now, only drawback I can see is I MAY have to paint them black if I dont like the way they look in the finished room, but that is an easy fix.

    I had wished my SX-HTB's were black as well, but once you get them, You will find them sort of elegant. the vinyl beachwood finnish is really done nicely. I havent upgraded any of the speakers, but eventually Id like to, I just dont feel the need to, these speakers are more than sufficient. I listen to movies and music 50/50% of the time. and I must say, DVD-A titles just sounds so incredible.

    HEY Travis. You don't have to paint them black. They look really great. I bought three by mistake, but I kind of liked them set up all around. In 6.1 setup. If you could put the extra cash for the AV_SC(center)it will be well worth it. Ya suround sound music is the best. if you need a sub parts express has tiny mity(model# 300-632)on sale right now. this sub get alot of good reviews on this site. There is a thread on right now about it. Look it up.

    Hey Travis,
    The pictures for the SX-HTB really don't do them justice. They really do have a beautiful tint to the finish, and the build quality is great. If you do go ahead with getting the SX-HTB speakers, I'm sure you'll reconsider painting them once you pull them out of the box.
