Hi all. We just moved to the No. Ga. Mountains and the wife has accepted the fact that i will be moving our living room HT to the basement with a new build out. it won't happen until summer of '18 but i wanted to start planning. At the old house i had a 7.1 setup, see signature below of equipment, that i am good with but it was in the living room of an open floor plan. Now with the opportunity of building a small HT room in the new basement, 11x20 room, I am looking for some advice. I am seriously thinking of the AURO setup. I'm thinking of a 9.1 or 10.1 with a speaker right above the sweet seat. knowing i will need a separate amp i'd like to use that amp for the LCR speakers and the X4100 for the rest. i am also looking at getting 5 more Mini Monitor 7's for the Auro speakers, leaving 1 spare speaker as they are sold in pairs. my budget is on the low side but it can be spread over several months, saving for the cost of what needs to be purchased. So, i am looking for advice on several items.
1. should i upgrade the 4100 to a unit that will do the Auro 10.1 or purchase a separate amp for the LCR? small HT room so don't need lots of power.
2. as i already have 2 Mini Mon. 7's, would purchasing 5 more be a good decision for the Auro speakers?
3. I believe the HSU sub i have will be good for the room size but do you think 2 would be better?
4. room size is set, cannot make it larger, so is this too much for a room that small?
I look forward to any and all thoughts and advise. Thank you.
