bring your LR mains off the side walls, for improved speaker
layout since you have the width.
That's a large volume for a single subwoofer. Walling off the storage area will also ensure nothing in storage is going to rattle, vibrate, or be an issue.

The screen wall
is a structural wall
and cannot be moved. There is in fact a structural beam almost right in the middle, and if I were to inset the speakers the center speaker
will be some what off centered to negotiate the beam. So, I really cannot do a rear projection.
I am not doing perforated screen to reduce cost and need for high gain screen.
I am doing a 148" cinemascope screen. So that along with the flanking columns will take up significant space, leaving me with 36" on either end. I will be placing
both the front R and L on the floor next to the sub, inside the cavity
. So, If I move the front R and L in, then the sub will be on the outside. I thoughts it's better to put the sub towards the middle and the front R and L to the outside. Which is better?
Walling off the storage area is a neat idea, however all my CAT6 and wires are between the center speaker
and the Right front speaker
and my AV equipment rack will be there. Therefore, I don't want to close that whole section. So, instead of closing the whole area, why not have 3 separate enclosures for each speaker
I have Paradigm reference 60's V2 and corresponding center and sub. Will these work enclosed?
P.S: When I say recessed into the wall
, it's not like in walls. Where ever the speakers will be, the studs and drywall will be removed and a cabinet made. The front of the cabinet will be flush with the screen wall
, and thus me saying it's recessed. So, I really don't see a difference between adding an extra wall
vs my plan.
