There was a thread on here about 5 yrs ago about this. Would love to get this started again.
My setup - room is 17.5' W x 21.5 D with false screen wall and stage. Framed for 120" 2.35 screen, non-AT. Design by Dennis Erskine.
B&W 802D (FLR, FLL)
B&W HTM2D (C)
B&W DS8S (LS, RS, RLS, RRS)
Seaton Submersive HP (not purchased yet)
Integra DHC 80.3
I'm about 75% 2 channel and 25% theater. Here's my plan. Place the 802D's lateral to the screen and cover the large areas seen in the picture with GOM. There will be a frame built and magnets placed so the covers are removable for access behind the screen.Will this make the imaging for 2 channel impossible with the FL and FR being 10 feet apart?
Listening position will be 13 feet back.My other problem right now is the length of run for wire. Length to FL is ~40 feet, FR is ~35 feet.
I've thought about moving the amplifier to behind the screen, but it just isn't feasible. So I've looked into an above average cable $5-10/foot for these runs to the FL, FR and C. I have 12AWG from Parts Express run for now. I've decided I'm going to scrap that for Canare 4S11, so that I can bi-wire. Anyone with any better suggestions for a speaker cable for this length in that price range?
