I also saw the KEF-Kht5005.2
for a little more.
The wall mounts is an interesting idea. My wife was originally against them, but she's coming around, and I think the NHT Absolute Wall Speaker
could work well. As you said, I could add the Boston Soundware's in the rear/ceiling, right?
Those look like some great subs. A couple of considerations:
1) The Yamaha receiver only has a single RCA subwoofer cable out. Does that matter?
2) The width of the space on the left side of the cabinet is just over 14 inches, so I'd probably have to go with a 14" max width sub.
Would a config like the above sound better than the discussed KEF sat/sub systems?
I like the KEF sub/sat systems. I have owned and listened to a few
NHT items, except the on-wall - I am not concerned about their on
wall speakers - they should sound good, I have not heard a bad NHT
speaker yet. For the money HTD is good. I like KEF, NHT and HTD,
more than Klipsch - the Egg speakers can get loud. My preference is
NHT or KEF 2005.3
One sub out option on your receiver, is all you need for subs. I would
stay open to the idea of putting the sub, by the side wall and out of
the corner. If you compromise and stuff the sub in the corner, then I
prefer a front firing sealed design, or non rear-firing ported design. It
can get some what boom and boomy in the corner, next to the cabinet.
If you do not go for sub/sat, then the Boston for surrounds will work.
