I have a family room that is contiguous with the kitchen (see picture below). The entire room is 26x14, but the family room, where the TV/Stereo exists, is 13x14. Will a LFM-1 Plus work? I plan for us to watch HT 75% and use stereo 25%. The music is 70's rock, classical and blues. Our receiver is a Pioneer VSX-1120-K and the speakers are Infinity RS5's. The room is setup, while not optimal for HT, is optimal for out family right now and probably will not be changing - unless the entire family falls in love with having the sound "just right".
Originally I wanted to get a LFM-1 Ex, but now I am trying to find the smallest "box" that would fit. The Ex (and other similar or larger boxes and cylinders) . at least on-line, were seen as "extremely unattractively" by my wife. However, after measuring the space and much discussion, the dimensions of LFM-1 Plus will work. But I want to make sure that it will work technically for this room. Here are the other ones, ordered by size, that we have found:
As you can see - it can get quite pricey! So, if the LFM-1 can possibly work - then I am more than happy to go in this direction. While I do really care about cost and functionality, the "size" and "attractiveness" issues have come to the forefront for us.
Your thoughts would be very appreciated.
