|My room currently (though i dont own the house so will probably change in near future) is about 18 feet by 35 feet. With the tv and couch against opposite 35 feet walls.|
yeah is a bigger room, you need bigger speakers. I'm in a very simmilar boat excet I don't care how big or ugly the speakers are.
my suggestion would be
2-Polk Monitor40's Front L and R
matching center (cant remember number)
and maybe a BIC F12 sub
that should be just over $800 would be decent "bones" you can do as I did, reuse old speakers for the surrounds for now. when you can upgrade later (and you mentioned larger room) you can the the matching Monitor70's as the fronts, you center will still match, and move the monitor40's to surround, that would give you a decent system IMO.
but, the speakers are not small by my standards.
also, you don't realize it yet, but if you get a larger room you will want more than 1 sub, that onkyo reciever is a 7.2 so you could upgrade to 2 subs eventually.
