Right... i have been given a huge task. I need to design a 7.1 system for a small private cinema for the budget of about $10000. I will be making the speakers out of MDF because i can get that for free. I already have an idea about how i am going to design the speakers but i need help with parts.
SO, here is the plan.
all the speaker points (7 places) will have 2 sets of speakers. 1 bottom set point to the middle of the bottom row and one pointing to the top row. This means that the top row will usually be a little further away from the centre and pointing more in towards the middle (if that makes sense). I will try to do a diagram below
The front speakers will be laid out like that for example.. with the top speakers being a little further out and pointing at more of an angle towards the centre so that it hits the middle of the top row.
I plan to have 2 midwoofers, 2 high mids and 2 tweeters per speaker point except maybe the centre speaker at the front. So i need to know about what parts go well together and will fill the room with sound (which will have sound dampening all over btw). I also need to know how to put them together... The box design i get, but i have never used crossovers or make Active speakers before. My experience is limited to subwoofers for cars.
The room size is about 23 deep x 29.5 wide x 10 tall in Feet. It will have about 30 seats on 3 rows. The rows will start at 8 feet from the front wall and go to about 14.5 feet from the front wall meaning that there is about 8.5 feet of space for the rear speakers. From the sides there is less space... There will be about 2 feet each side maybe for the L/R back speakers.
The screen size is about 85 inches (i think) so with that all in mind, anyone got any suggestions? any tips or tutorials on how to make crossovers and make active speakers properly?
All the sound equipment has to cost no more than about $10000 (including receiver, amp or whatever else i need)
