That is a hell of a sub, it will compliment the EMPs very well.

In this case you should probably stick with monopole surrounds.

This would be a last resort, mounting them up high and angling them down would be my recommendation.

I think it's just the opposite, the industry is moving away from bipoles/dipoles because with ATMOS coming, you don't want overlapping sound. I think with a speaker that creates a large sound stage,...

Excellent movie to put your surrounds to work, not many movies are as immersive as that one.

With 5.1, I would stick to using side surrounds if possible. Can you post a picture of the area so we can get a better idea of what your limitations are? I would probably try and mount the speakers...

I would focus on making the surround effect the best at the main seating position, the sectional.

Given your close proximity to the rear wall, 5.1 is more appropriate here. I would mount the...

I just popped in my Barenaked Ladies Maroon album, and it's a great listen. The 90s were really a great time for audio, CDs were in their prime and there's just so much more quality to the...

Sure it will output something, but you are over 20dB down at that point, which is not usable.

Is your seating against the back wall? Generally with 5.1, you go with side surrounds, not rear surrounds.

HSU makes quality subs, which one did you end up with? I think the EMPs are an excellent option, I have heard a good number of speakers in this price range and above, and am very content with mine.

You could probably get one of those flat panel speakers to use at a center instead, give HTD a call and see how it would match.

For a small sub, the SVS SB -1000 is a good place to start.

Having them closer together makes for a smaller sound stage and your imaging can suffer. I would say if you can at least get them 6-7 ft. apart, you are doing well.

Okay here is a second idea, build off what you have now, but create a false wall where the TV is. Put all three speakers in line with the TV like you would if you had the wall space. This leaves a...

Yeah I was speaking with regards to speakers, since the OP already has a good sub and was concerned about bookshelves filling a room.

Neither sub is going to give you that kind of bass experience. What you are seeking is probably closer to the $1000 price point. The PB-1000 will be better for HT, it will dig deeper, play louder,...
