I'm in the early planing phase of my new dedicated home theater. My new home construtcion should begin in early/mid September.
My question is something that I've pondered before, and I've recently come accross it being mentioned in another post (can't find it). What benefit would I gain by using full towers in my front sound stage as oposed to bookshelfs? This is my old set up (I sold everything with the house).
My new theater will be in a bonus room on top of the garage. 25x14x8.
Since most good towers can handle low end pretty well, but we cut it out and let the subs handle that part why not save some money and get really good bookshelfs for the LCR?
I plan on doing something similar in my new room (speakers and subs behind AT screen). I don't really care if it looks a bit wimpy back there as no one sees it! I used to love the look of three massive towers behind the screen but as I get older and wiser (not according to my wife), I want the best bang for my buck!
Secondly, what Direct sellers would you recomend? I've purchased from HTD.com before and was satisfied with the quality and service. I've come accross Chane Loudspeakers... They look impressive and the prices are great, but has anyone had experience with them? Any other sellers? This time around, I'm really not interested in brand names. I just want good powerfull speakers/subs for the best price I can find!
