I've been snooping around for a while on AVS; and am now finally ready to build out my first set up. Based on some reading over various forums; it seems to me that going the 3.1 or 3.2 route would be more beneficial for me[due to my budget constraint]. I do plan on eventually [6-12 month time frame] converting to a 5.1/5.2 set up. Here are the room details:
175" L x 114" W x 108" H
The room will be a dedicated media room. Movies, Shows, Football...etc.
My budget right now is $1,500 for speakers/sub[s] and receiver. I definitely prefer speaker quality over speaker quantity.
The seating distance will range from 96" - 146". The audio set up will be joining a 106" Projector set up.
My questions are basically coming down to:
1. Whether I would benefit from the purchase of 2 subs?
2. What speakers / subs?
[I know this is opinionated but I'd like the feedback. Yes, I have already done tons of searching. Lots of threads are dated and I'd like some information dated as of 10/2013]
Any help and feedback will be greatly appreciated!
