Hey guys, I'm Dav!
So here's the deal: I just got house after a long time of being in an apartment. Last month I purchased an Epson 6030 projector with a 135" screen, it is amazing. I have no real audio system at all. I have the projector set up in a long narrow room with an 8 foot roof, the projector screen is on one end with the couch in the middle.
When I was younger I built a few SPL systems for car audio competitions, and I thought I knew alot about audio, but after a week or so of lurking the internets I'm lost when it comes to a home theater setup.
I don't plan on modifying the space for soundproofing or anything, but I want decent sound to go with this projector. So not professional, but good enough to not be unprofessional... if that makes sense? I would say somewhere in the neighborhood of 3-5k, maybe less or more if there is some sort of price/performance plateau like there is with projectors.
Anyways, what do you guys recommend for an audio system in a room like that? It will be used for movies and gaming, not music.
