I am an audio newbie trying to setup a decent home theater in my basement. I am on a skimpy budget ($1000) for a good audio system (receiver + speakers). I spent $700 ($300 fo Onkyo receiver + $400 for speaker system) but the audio output is very mediocre.
This is my setup today:
Space - 13 ft (width) x 33 ft (length)
Projector - Optoma HD 33
Receiver - Onkyo 7.2 TX-NR515
Audio - Klipsch 500W HD 5.1 (Speaker - 2.5" woofer, 0.75" tweeter for L, c, r and 100W/8" on the sub)
I think these are the problems I am facing:
- The Klipsch speaker set is too small for my 13 x 33 sized room
- The 100W subwoofer is also small for my room. Think I need at least 200W
I am seeking your advice on new/used system that will give me good sound output for $1000 tops (does not include receiver). What options do I have?
If I choose in-wall speakers and sit 25 feet away, will I feel the impact of the Front, Left and Center?
Please let me know! Picture of my setup attached
