    Looking for advice on power

    I've been looking at the Klipsch R-820F speakers lately, as they seem to be right on the middle of my budget. I've never owned Klipsch myself, but those I know who have them seem to be very please. I know they tend to have the reputation to sound a bit bright, but the ones I've listened to...

    Looking for advice on power

    This is definitely the first time looking into separate components. I haven't settled on speakers yet, I'm still researching. Regarding the Emotiva option, I certainly like the price compared to the others. If I do decide to go with separates, do I necessarily need a 5 channel amp to drive the...

    Thanks Dave, your HT looks awesome! I will have to crunch the numbers to get a new budget amount, but I am looking at 9 channels for a 5.1.4 setup.

    Looking for advice on power

    Dave, Do you, or anyone else on this thread for that matter, currently have separate components? Since your last comment, I have been looking into processor and amplifier combinations, as well as simply buying an AVR now and adding an amplifier in the future. This looks to be a great...

    So in looking at the spec sheet for this speaker, do the dB level and distance variations indicate that a speaker's efficiency rating vary depending on how far away the listener is? Efficiency rating is not necessarily a static number?

    Thanks Dave, and howdy neighbor! This is indeed very helpful. It's one of the more understandable explanations of all power and how it works. I haven't chosen any speakers yet. I've always been drawn to SVS, but I'm also looking at some from Yamaha, just to match brands. One question on watts...

    Looking for advice on power

    Howdy from Texas folks. As I mentioned in another post a few weeks back, my wife and I are in the process of building a home with a dedicated media room. It will be wired for a 5.1.4 setup, and the size of the room is 14'-11" x 17'-6" x 9'. As the completion of the house draws near, I am...

    Question on Atmos and surround speakers

    That's exactly where they will be. I stated they were "rear surrounds" but they will actually be on the side walls directed towards the viewing area. I'm also going to relocate the sub to the front of the room, as you mentioned earlier.

    Question on Atmos and surround speakers

    Thanks! I'm going to keep the two wall speakers as the rear surrounds. Based on what you shared that looks to be the best option.

    Question on Atmos and surround speakers

    Hi John...I can place the sub anywhere in the room, the location noted on the pic is just where they run wiring by default.

    Question on Atmos and surround speakers

    Greetings all. Long time member, first time poster. In the next few months we will be moving in a house that has a dedicated media room. The room is 14'-11" x 17'-6" in size. By default, the room comes prewired for 7.1 sound, which originally included two front wall speakers, a center channel...
