About to finish my basement and setting up a home theater area. The room is 25feet long by 16 feet wide 8 feet ceilings. I'm open to sugestions, for speakers, and receiver.
I'm leaning towards a 7.1/2 setup depending on how it sounds. may be add the secon sub later.
I'm planning on getting polk rc85i (inwall speakers) for front LCR and surround left and right.
and 2 rc80i round speakers (inwall) on the ceiling.
they are on sale at amazon, with a free psw111 sub from polk.
i have read mixed reviews on the sub, but i guess thats where the 7.2 setup with 2 subs would come in to play in case i ever need it.
now to the receiver, I'm looking at yamaha a720; pioneer 1122k; onkyo nr717. not sure which one.
Would love to hear from you guys on what you think of the setup.
I'm not an audiophile by any means, my current setup is a 5 yr old sony home theater in a box setup and i think its pretty decent haha. So obviously i dont know much.
My budget, I was planning on getting Bose lifestyle 5.1 speakers with onkyo receiver for 1199 at costco. Heard all the bad reviews of bose, I guess its atleast not worth the money.
So there you have it 1200-1500 budget for everything, speakers, sub and receiver and i prefer inwall.
