I'm reposting my issue here in hopes of getting additional advice.
I have a dedicated media room in our new house. 12 ft wide, 17ft long
The builder prewired the room for 7.1
All 7 speakers are located aprox 10ft from the floor
Three across the front, two on the sides and two in the rear.
I have a Sony STR-DN1030 7.2 ch receiver. that will be used in this setup
A recommended Home Media Installer suggested the following setup with speaker locations remaining unchanged.Projector
: Epson Procinema 6020 $2,700
Includes 2 pairs of 3D glasses and comes with an extra lamp
Screen: DragonFly 120" Fixed screen with Velvet border
High Contrast Grey screen with 1.1 gain $650Speakers
: Episode 300 series In-wall speakers with 6.5" woofer
Model is ES-300-IW-6 7 of these speakers for $545
Episode ES-SUB 10-200 Subwoofer: $289
The installer swears it will sound awesome but it seems as though everyone online thus far has said the speakers need to be located near ear level or it won't sound right.
What say you?
