1. Need help in finalizing Aperion 5.1 speaker system. Here are the details
2. Room size 15.5 feet * 11.5 feet (about 178 sq feet total). This is an entertainment room, rectangular size. I will have a home theatare configuration in this room. There will be nothing else in this room apart from a home theatare and sitting arrangements.This room is a bed room converted into entertainment room hence it is a compact room with one door for entrance and one window.
3. I do not know how to post an attachement here as this is my first post but my room is rectangular with lenght as 15.5 feet and width 11.5. TV will be in one wall and sitting sofa will touch he opposite wall so the seating distance will be about 10-12 feet. Hence the rear/surrond speaker will be close to the sitting position(there will not be gap between the back wall and sofa)
4. I looked into aperion web site and the 10th anniversary home theatare system with 6B, 6C, 5DB and 10D looks good.
Is this configuration too much for size of my room. Would it feel heavy for this room size. Should I go with this or a lower configuration like 5B,5C and 4B which is part of 5B fusion SD pack). I will be using the home theatare for 60% TV/movie, 25% music and rest for gaming.
Please help to identify the right configuration as I an mew to this area and do not understand the technicalities.
Thank you for the help.
Hello Ben and welcome to the forum!
The 10th Anniversary system is a great deal, but it might be overkill for your size room and another thing to consider is that the 6Bs are fairly low in sensitivity and need a good amount of power to get the most out of them.
I would bet that in a room of that size that the 5B Fusion SD system would be plenty for your needs, although you might consider moving up to the 4Ts, as they would outperform the 5Bs for music. Although at that point you would be at $1759 and only $240 below the Anniversary package.
So here's how I would break it down:
If you want to get the most bang for your buck and will have an AVR of at least 120 wpc or so then get the Anniversary system.
If you don't think the 4Ts are worth for the bump in performance for the 25% music portion of your usage go for the 5B Fusion SD package, which is significantly cheaper than the Anniversary system.
If you do think that the step up to the 4Ts for music is going to be worth it and you also think that spending $240 more for a bigger package that you might not need in that space isn't the best idea then I'd go for a custom system of 4T/5C/4B/8D. You also might consider going up to the 4BPs if you buy before the sale ends this weekend as they provide a better surround effect and are only $50 more than the 4Bs right now.
Hope that helps but please let me know if you have any other questions!
