Hello davyo and everyone,
This is my 1st post on this forum and am grateful for the abundance of knowledge that is available here!
We are currently undergoing massive renovations throughout our home and have a situation where a typical 5.1 home theater system is not feasable due to poor speaker locations and wiring issues with the limited options that we have. I have done some research the last 2 days and have found the YSP-1100. It seemed great till my cousin linked me to the up and coming YSP-4000! I can also just layout one of the new Yamaha YST-FSW150 subwoofers right underneath my sectional.
Here is the problem...My 52" Sharp Aquos will be mid air over a BDI cabinet (52" wide), centered between 2 walls. Basically in a "cove" type location. My sectional will run alongside the perimeter of the living room, by the windows, till it eventually turns across the living room. Directly behind the sectional on the far end is the dining room table. The space behind the sectional into the dining room is about 8'. Is this TOO much space behind the listening area for the YSP-4000 to perform properly?
There is a 12' open gap going into the kitchen between the end of the sectional and the dining room table about 15' away from the YSP-4000. Other than that, there is all walls elsewhere. The overall size of the living/dining room is 24' X 11' in which there are walls all around, except for the 12' opening into the kitchen furthest away from the YSP-4000. Also, the situation where there is 8' behind the sectional into the dining room space. Maybe TOO much open space behind the listening location?
I know it is a little confusing, but what do you guys think as far as the sound generated in this envirement?
P.S. Sorry for the long post...hard to explain.
