I am putting together a home theater in the only room I have available, my living room. It is 19X19 with 10ft ceilings. To complicate matters it has a 5X7 opening to the kitchen / dining area, a 5X7 opening to the foyer, and a louvered door leading to the hallway.
My goal is to have a powerful low end for movies and may be used 10-15% of the time for music. My receiver is an Onkyo 805, and my LCR setup are some discontinued Klipsch SLX wall mounted speakers. (I would like to eventually replace these) and for rear surround I will be installing some ceiling speakers to keep the wife happy.
I have an entire corner I can use for the sub, and was thinking about a sonotube model. My brief experiments with sonosub an winisd were using a 15" Dayton Titanic III in a 10 ft3 18" sonotube tuned to 18Hz. Total hight was around 7' tall. However, I am open to any suggestions. I would like to keep the driver cost under $400 or so. For an amp I had planned to use an EP2000.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide in selecting a driver and an enclosure.
Here is my layout, the green box is the TV, the orange box is the couch, and the brown is a normally closed louvered door.
