So I've seen some people start threads to show progression of their $50,000 dedicated theater rooms and I wanted to feel a bit prestigious so I'm going to show the progress of my humble living room/HT setup.
Feel free to leave ANY kind of criticism or advice along the way!
This'll be a 9.2 setup using front wides, front heights, and side surrounds. The setup is completely made of second-hand Triad speakers so this may be a very drawn if I can't find what I'm looking for.
The living room is about 18' x 12'. TV goes on the center of the wide wall.
Old setup was a 5.1 system with:
-(5) Bowers & Wilkins
-(1) Emotiva Ultra 12 Subwoofer
-59" Plasma on low-profile immobile mount
New setup will be (eventually!), * denotes I have it ordered/in my possession:
*-59" plasma on articulating mount
*-(2) Triad OnWall Bronze LCR, left & right
-(1) Triad InRoom Bronze or Silver LCR, center
*-(2) Triad InRoom Mini Satellite, front heights
*-(2) Triad InRoom Bronze Satellite, front wides
-(2) Triad OnWall Bronze Surround, side/rear surrounds
*-(1) Triad InRoom Silver Sub
(*?)-Current sub or new sub?
Until I get all the speakers, we're running with M1s as surrounds and as a center channel. Center channel is definitely the priority right now!
I thought to do this in the middle of mudding the old holes so that's where I'll start uploading pictures.
Here we go! I assure you the mess will clear up as we go along.
