OP here, thought I would post an update on my audio system research. After much reading and research I think I've finally made a decision that makes the most sense.
When someone first suggested I go the DIY route and build some waveguide kits I was initially pretty intimidated by the prospect of such a project.... but looking the diysoundgroup website and countless build threads, I think I can do this. In fact, it looks like it will significantly reduce the money I had previously allocated when I was thinking JTRs all around. So here is my current solution and my only real concern is whether or not this setup would be overkill for my room. Again, the dimensions are roughly 22' x 15' x 8' ... I should also make note that (per the wife's instruction...) I did NOT decouple or DD+GG the room. 3 of the four walls have concrete foundation behind them, but soundproofing was never a concern for the wife or I.
Moving on the equipment
TDM12 SEOS-12 (x3) for LCR ~ $1600 not including shipping
Fusion 8 Alchemy Kit (x4) for surrounds ~ $750 not including shipping
Dayton RSS460HO-4 18" (x2) for subs ~ $750 not including shipping
Behringer iNuke 3000 to power the subs ~ $400 not including shipping
Dennon X4000 Receiver ~ $1000
That puts me at $4500. I know I haven't accounted for painting the speakers etc, but those project items won't break the bank... This seems really doable and I'm excited about starting this project, again my only concern is that the walls don't come tumbling down on me because of sound system going in.
