Your time is appreciated.
Have you thought at all about how to tame the poor acoustics of the room? You say it is a tile floor what about the walls, If they are hard surfaces your best imvestment will be to add soft surfaces.
Jeff, I have 3 walls which will be well padded on your suggestion.
Most speakers are available in India.
I would not e watching cable in this room.
This is a dedicated room for movies- Blu Ray, etc.
est wishes and thank you for your precious time.
Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
Next if this room is mostly for blurays, you should do some reading on the merits of a 2.35:1 format screen. Historically screens have evolved. When HDTV came into vogue we all went to 16:9 now we try to accommodate the wide scope screen presentations. After you think about format you should consider whether you want an acoustically transparent screen so you can position speakers like a commercial theater, out of sight behind the screen for a clean look. Of you want everything on display sitting in front of the screen wall. You have the depth in your room for an acoustically transparent screen
Couple of examples: both 2.35:1 format screens
everything on display:
There is an acoustic reason for the behind the screen. If it is mounted below the screen it is close to the floor and you will get a lot of reflection off your tile floor this will affect sound quality. Being low the first row of seating may also block the second rows direct sound path, again not a good thing. I am believer in acoustically transparent screens and getting the center channel up in the middle of the screen.
