    Hello,
    I'm planning on treating my family to a home theater in our family/great room and I could use some help. I need a speaker setup that will do well with both surround movies and stereo music. I think I can budget $1200-1800 and of course prefer staying on the low side unless we're talking about magnitudes of difference.

    My family room is 26'x15'x9' with an effective 22'x15'x9' listening area. Its paneled with bookshelves and a brick fireplace on one long wall with bare wall, pictures and mirror on the opposite. We have two sofas and a recliner besides a few small tables and an area rug in the middle of the hardwood floor. The short walls are an irregularly shaped entrance/traffic area and opposite are picture windows flanked by two large cabinets (this looks out onto the patio and pool and will be where the tv and other components are located, Quite a bright backlight but I think I can handle that). The ceiling has faux beams running the width of the room spaced about 4' apart.

    I'm currently favoring either Cambridge or Polk theater systems as I'm wanting to mount the speakers to the sides of the beams (with a downward cast) to keep the room looking as uncluttered as possible and preserve domestic tranquility[​IMG] .

    Thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.

    Have you looked into the def.tech. procinema 100's.I have a room thats 22.5x19.5 and had the procinema's for about 3 yrs.They were great for me.The only thing i did was get the better center the c2 and the 200tl sub.They can be mixed and matched to your liking.They only come in black or white.They vary between the procinema 60's which is a complete setup to the 80's,100's and 200's all which can be mixed and matched.
