I've been humming and hawing for a month now about getting a soundbar, getting on wall speakers... I have finally decided (thanks to the WAF) to get book shelf speakers that will go IN a book shelf. Bookshelf will be 20 inches wide and 15 inches deep (exactly the same measurements as an IKEA Hemnes bookshelf you might say!!).
Our "theater" room is our living room. It's 9 feet wide and 15 feet long and opens up into the kitchen. The whole front of it is covered by an IKEA entertainment unit, and the bookcases will fill in the gap on each side.
Right now, I have Paradigm Monitor 7's, a Paradigm Center channel (forget the model), and Titans connected to a Pioneer 1018 with an excellent Paradigm PW-2200 sub.
BUT - all this is too big.
I will be getting a Marantz NR1403/1603, a SVS-PC12-NSD sub. I will keep my center channel for the time being. The BIGGEST problem I'm having is finding bookshelf speakers that will be fine in a bookcase, and I really need some suggestions. I loved the Paradigm Studio 20's, but they don't look like they will be any good in a bookcase.
Budget is preferably under 800 (damn WAF). Really need some help!
