We are currently designing house plans for a new home that will include a dedicated theater room. Currently, we have the theater room drawn up at 16 X 27 with 9 foot ceilings (See image below). This room will be over a garage. There should be attic space on each side so side sub placement is possible. I'm going to use an acoustically transparent screen. I'm leaning toward Klipsch THX speakers for the fronts/surrounds. I was strongly leaning toward dual SVS PB13 Ultras. However, many on this site say that dual Submersives would be an upgrade. The new master/slave option makes this an attractive option due to pricing. I'm potentially interested in dual HP+ or F2+ (Master/Slave option). I was thinking that one in the front and one in the rear would work well in the long room.
The fact that Seaton seems to be more of a guy than a company bothers me a bit. I sent an email to email@example.com and never got a response. I sent a message to SVS and got a response in a couple of hours. It scares me a bit to consider spending that kind of money when the Seaton company doesn't seem to be reachable and there isn't even a website.
Any suggestions on room design, sub/speaker/company choice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Being on a suspended upper floor you may want to decouple the subs from the floor underneath. You can use a finished product like an Auralex Gramma/Subdude or make something yourself. If the floor is concrete you might not need to worry.
Also - you might get more feedback on your subwoofer options if you post in the subwoofer section.
