From what I've read here, this question gets asked a lot but I wanted to bounce this off everyone just to make sure I'm making the right purchase decisions as this is my first swing at doing a 5.1 speaker setup outside of buying a HTiB system.
I'm putting together a projector based theater in my basement and have a relatively compact space (12 x 14'). The system will be used for movies, games, and music. I've already purchased a Denon 2113ci receiver to power the speakers and now have about $700 left in the audio budget for speakers (plus some money for wires and mounts). Because of the tight space, I was originally looking at buying a Definitive Technology Pro Cinema 600 system and calling it a day. After reading other forums and reviews that mention systems like that having smaller sound I was wondering if I should try to piece something together myself or buy another system. The other option I looked at was going with four Infinity Primus 143 speakers plus the center plus a Klipsch RW12-D sub. My only concern about bookshelf speakers like that is that A) I might not be able to wall mount them and B) If I can wall mount them, would they even look ok by a projector screen or would they stick out too far? Can anyone speak to the ease of mounting speakers like that? With a somewhat tight budget I don't expect this to be the best system in the world, just something that will be a solid start in the home theater world and let me upgrade the pieces over time as I can afford to.
Given those concerns I'd love peoples feedback on my options above or if there is another 5.1 system I should consider.
Thanks in advance!
