My speaker setup is as follows....
L&R - JBL 4333A 3-way near-field monitors
Centre - JBL 4315 4-way near-field monitor (this one was salvaged undamaged from a studio fire, it's mate was lost).
Surround - JBL 4301 2-way broadcast monitors
Back surround - Advent hi-fi bookshelf pair
Front height - Wharfedale Brick's (not much bigger than a house brick but incredible sounding tiny things now just coasting in this role)
Sub1 - JBL JRX118 Musicians Sub
Sub2 - DIY 15" folded horn (with a small peak at 45Hz)
Coming - Klipsch sides - RS 62II or RS 52II (for 11.2 setup)
Room is 7.2m x 5.1m (we view down the long axis).
Main seating pair is about 4m from screen (I like to be immersed in the scene)
A 2-seat lounge is behind the front pair on a riser
Lighting is side scones with IR remote dimming
Walls are have heavy sound insulation
Room entry via double doors (2nd used for wide access as necessary)
The doors are standard internal off-the-shelf things but I added heavy sound proofing to them on the theatre side and commercial housing expansion joint strips that scrub the floor for sound seals on the bottom edge.
I will soon be adding wireless remote scene/mood lighting and can't wait for the home version of Atmos to come.
Hope that is enough
