We are building a new house that comes with a Media Room. We are planning to convert this into a dedicated (small) theater. The room is 14' x 14.5' with sloped ceiling to 9'. I am attaching a drawing and looking forward to your critique.
The first seating row will be at approximately 8' viewing distance and the second row will be against the back wall. Due to the small room and seating arrangement I believe we need to go with dipole speakers for side and rear surrounds. Currently looking at Triad Silver LCR and surrounds. For subwoofer I am planning a 500W A5-350 Elemental Design that already own.
Given the short viewing distance for the front row I decided against an AT screen thus having to place the center speaker horizontally below the screen.
The raiser is 10" tall and 5.5' deep, a compromise again due to the small room dimensions.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
