Was hoping someone could help with ideas for diy LRC speakers for this space. The room is a dedicated media room thats 12.5ft x 20ft. It will be used for 90% movies, 10% music. I have the challenge of not having much space between the open doors and the TV/Entertainment Center.



The door on the left is a closet door. The larger door on the right is the entry door. The challenge is that I only have 11" of clearance between the entry door and the entertainment center. There is 17" on the other side. I would love to build something like the Fusion-12 Tempest kit, but obviously thats way too big. Even the Fusion-10 is too big.

A center speaker is not as much of a challenge since i could modify the entertainment some if I needed to.

The ER18MTM I think are only 9" wide, so that might be an option. Any other ideas?

What width do you have?

Zaph has an MMTMM that might be worth a look. It's only 8 or 9" wide but quite tall.

The ZA5.5tt does look interesting. A concern is the space they seem to indicate you need around them for the baffle to operate (front baffle 2ft from back wall, 1ft from TV) I can get close to that, but don't have the room to be a foot from TV (maybe 6"). Is this something to stress over?

Unfortunately that would be worse, there is a closet from an adjoining room protruding into the space at the rear.

The ZA5.5 is a very nice speaker, and I would highly recommend it for your application. The boundary distances that are listed on Zaph's site are the optimal distances, but if you are off a little here or there its no big deal, they will still sound excellent! I really like Zaph's designs, and have personally heard 2 of his designs that both sounded absolutely great!
