Well, we are working on the basement framing as we speak.
The room is about 15' x 50' or so.. (the 50' is a guess) its half of our entire basement that will be entirely open.
One end will be the movie area.
About 15' wide, and the chairs (where our heads will be) will be approx 13.5-14' back from the screen.
(92 inch wall mounted screen for projector)
Wiring will be coming up soon and I had some old accoustimas bose system that I was planning on using, but the wife is putting a bug in my ear to maybe consider ditchin the bose and putting in some front wall speakers, sub and ceiling speakers in a 8' drop ceiling for the rears. (I dont have walls behind furniture to put rear wall speakers)
Depending on what the cost would be for a new speaker set... maybe. But I have a feeling that this could be a bigger cost than what we have $$ for right now.
If I said that I would want to stay under $600 or $700, is it possible to get a good set of 5.1 speakers for that amount?
(2 front, 1 center, sub, 2 rear ceiling)
Not even sure what speakers are good when it comes to wall/ceiling speakers.
Can anyone suggest what brands to start checking out? And what price range is going to give me some good sound?
I dont need top of the line, but I dont want it to sound like my cheap home theatre speakers we have in on the small living room tv.
Middle of the road here.
What do you suggest?
