Space: full room is 34+ feet by 12 (HT portion is in the center of that - 14 x 12). Roughly 10 feet on each side for wet bar and open area. Hopefully that makes sense. Front is built-in entertainment center wall/back is a wall, right and left are open. Ceiling is 7 feet from front wall to end of soffit (about 6 feet) then 8 foot ceilings rest of way to back wall.
Budget: not positive yet but likely around $4K
Wants: HT (60+ inch TV, receiver, DVD/BluRay, full compliment of speakers)
Style: I'm a huge sports guy - lots of football, basketball, golf, etc PLUS tons of movies. Music quality not a huge priority but would be nice to have decent quality.
Time Frame: Drywall goes up Feb 3rd! I need to have wiring in by then.
Yesterday I went into BB Magnolia. Listened to Definitive ProCinema 600s and Speakercraft along with a few others. I was pretty impressed with AIM7TWOs with Martin Logan sub. I think the center was a Definitive. Receiver was Denon AVR X2000.
I'm kind of torn right now on the type of speaker I want. I think I want in ceiling but would probably be ok with just about anything.
I'm in early stages of research but my time frame is closing in!
