I’ve been here a while but keep to myself and use the search function.
I wanted to get everyone’s thoughts on this winters project.
Current devices and speakers
Pioneer Elite vsx-23txh
Scientific Atlanta 8300hd
Xbox 360 (slim)
Klipsch F2 (LF,RF)
Klipsch C2 (center)
Klipsch S2 Surrounds (LR,RR) on Heavy duty 3 post Sanus stands
Well the other half wants a vent-less fireplace and the only logical place to put it is where the TV is. So this of course means that I have to mount the TV on the wall and do away with the media cabinet under it.
In order to do that, I will be mounting everything inside of the wall of the adjacent closet. I have a 2 post that I will attach to a stud on each side of it. I will use shelves and component plates to pretty it up, As well frame the perimeter with a wood boarder.
So my question is since I’m doing all this; I’m thinking about going to In-Wall speakers. Currently I’m looking at doing a pair of KL-6504-THX for the front left and right with KL-6502-THX taking up the center and rear channels.
So first off what’s your thoughts of these and will my currently receiver power then decently.
other questions is when doing the rears being that the couch is right up against the rear wall is it best to put rear in walls directly behind you or off to the sides pointing in towards you. I can’t really try and see what works as obviously I have to cut some holes in the wall.
And finally will these be equivalent or better than the old speaker setup. Also been looking at in wall subs but I can’t see how this can possibly sound decent without shaking the crap out of the wall and vibrating everything.
My budget is around 3k for all the speakers.
