Hi,

 

Need some advice on speaker selection for Dedicated home theater room in my basement

 

Room Size : 29ft x 17ft x 9ft (ceiling)

 

Mostly they will be used for TV/Movies/PS4 Gaming

 

Thinking about a 7.1 ch unless you guys think 5.1 is good.

 

Its gonna be 123" inch screen, with 1 row seating at 14 ft distance.

 

All the way back, I'm thinking about a Multi-game table.

 

Need suggestions for

 

1) Front speaker pair with Center

2) Sub-woofer

3) Surround -- Should I go in wall ?

 

I already own Yamaha RX-V673 7.2-Channel. Do you think it can do the job ?

 

All great ideas are welcome.

 

 

thanks a Bunch to all experts on this forums.

Big room means big powerful sub. I'd recommend the PSA XV15. They are an Internet direct brand that provides much better value than traditional speaker company subs. And eventually, after you've got your HT room setup and you've had a chance to recover from how much you spent, get a 2nd one smile.gif

Living room HT: Energy RC-50, Ascend Sierra Horizon w/RAAL, Ascend Sierra 1, PSB Imagine XA | PSA V1500 and CHT SS 18.1 | Denon X4200W | modified Dayton SA1000
Other rooms: CBM-170 SE | SVS SB-1000 | Audio-GD NFB-11 | Parasound Zamp | JBL LSR305

Only your ears can decide what sounds good to you, but I did a lot of research when I needed a 5.1 surround system and listened to a bunch of different brands. I asked the sales guy at a local hi-fi shop to play various speaker pairs using the same source, but switching between different brands, all unknown to me. The speakers that I kept coming back to were Definitive Technology powered towers. This was back in 1999 I believe, and I ended up purchasing a complete Definitive Technology system which included a pair of BP2002 powered towers with built-in 250 watt amps for the 12" subs, a CLR2002 center channel, a PF15TL powered subwoofer with built-in 325 watt amplifier, and a pair of BP2X surrounds. I still have this amazing system and it sounds as good today as the day I bought it. You can get a similar system for around $2k, but like I said, go test listen various speaker systems for yourself to see what sounds best to you.

BenQ W1070 front projector, Definitive Technology BP2002 towers, Def Tech CLR2002 center, Def Tech BP2X surrounds, Def Tech PF15 subwoofer, Denon AVR3300 receiver, Panasonic Blu-Ray player, Apple TV, Roku device, Monoprice HDMI switcher
