Hi, all! I am just getting into the home theater arena and am a little confused as to what I would need to fill my room. The room I'm using is actually a converted living room. It measures 19x17x10 LxWxH roughly. The TV is placed on one of the short walls. The wall to the right of the TV is completely open to a foyer type area for about 12 or so feet in the center. The wall to the left is made up of floor to ceiling windows for it's entire length. The wall in the back has a standard door-frame on the right which opens into another very large room. The floors are all hardwood but there is a rug covering essentially the entire floor in the room with the TV. I know this isn't an ideal room, but it is what I have to work with. I was wondering whether I would need tower speakers to effectively cover this space? Also, what size/wattage sub? And how many watts/channel on my reciever? I know it's a lot of questions but I don't have much knowledge about this. If this should be split up into the reciever and speaker forums, I'll try and move it or PM a mod. Thanks so much! Patrick P.S.- Having been a member of another forum for a few years, it is refreshing to find such a knowledgeable, courtious, and on-topic forum such as this one. Kudos to the owners for making it such a great place. I've been browsing here for a few weeks now and it is truly a wealth of knowledge presented in a non-threatening atmosphere.
