So here's the situation - we're building a new house and I'm getting a dedicated theater space for 100% movie viewing. Will be 16x21 with ceiling probably 11ft. Current theater has B&W CM9 fronts, CMC2 center, DS3 surrounds, Submersive HP+ sub. As this will be a dedicated theater, I want to do a false wall and AT screen. That means I can switch to 'ugly' speakers, and I am considering 2 paths: JTR 228 LCR with Single 8 back/surrounds vs a Klipsch Ultra2 setup. The submersive will stay :-)
The decision point is that the Klipsch setup is only 56% of the cost of the JTR setup, so it is compelling financially to go with the Klipsch setup. Even more compelling is sticking to the B&W's, but I think in the long run they simply won't provide enough volume for the new room, and I'd like to get the setup right the first time (dont want to install speakers only to replace them soon thereafter as this room will be built soundproof).
For those who've had experience with these systems, what would your recommendations be? I am not able to audition these setups anywhere locally that I know of.
