You cant imagine how happy I am to find a 1K+ thread about the adussey system
I have scavanged the audyssey site and read 20-30 pages here and the guides.
Fantastic work - You can never get to much info.Background
I am about to buy the Integra 80.3 pre-amp with Audysses DSX Wide+High.
I am also upgrading the projection screen to a Firehawk G3.
The problem is that those two equations does not add up since I have to make sacrifices in either the audio or picture domain.Goal
Basicaly I want a 3.12meters (10,23 feet) wide 2.35:1 screen image area (as in image attached).
To have a good viewing angle wuthout loosing gain and retain a good visual acuity and also follow THX & SMTP standards the seating would reside at about 4,4m (14,43 feet).
I also want to apply DSX as correct as possible to benefit fully.Question
This is where the trouble begins.
If I am gonna be able to apply DSX the speakers will end up in CRAZY places like in front of the entrance, inside the oven (kakel-ugn in swedish) a.s.o.
So as I see it my options are as in image (Red lines = optimal angles):
0 (not in image)- Reduce screen size and move closer to screen (getting sofa in front of entrance)
A - Keep screen size and put some speakers off angle, but keeping as many as possible according to norm even if it means getting uneven placement.
Non circle shape of speaker placement.
B - Keep image and put ALL speakers off angle (but rears) with the same amount, none according to norm but even placement and closer to a circle shape.
Which would be the best?
For me 0 is not really an option unless DSX gives more impact than a huge screen.
But from the other two which would be best.
Or something in between, in that case can You describe?
Oh, I will never be able to get 45 degree height on the height speakers by the side wall but that I will sacrifice to keep ceiling clean.
