Thank you for the advice! Now you've got me reconsidering the entire speaker solution. Oh boy...lol
I know this subforum is dedicated to subwoofers, but how inappropriate would it be for me to use this thread to post my entire speaker plan for feedback? I guess it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission, so here goes...
I've got $2750 to work with for the entire 5.1 or 5.2 speaker arrangement in this large volume room. This system will be used primarily for loud HT (action movies), but the owner will also play a lot of music at low/moderate volumes (primarily classical and classic rock) every day. The entire setup will be powered by a Pioneer Elite SC-LX701.
Here's my current plan, but I'm open to any/all suggestions:
: Hsu VTF-3 MK5 HP ($760)
: Emotiva Airmotiv T2 Towers ($1000/pr
: Emotiva Airmotiv C2 ($370)
: Emotiva Airmotiv E2 ($460/pr
) (planning to experiment with di/bipole setting to see which works best in the space)
TOTAL: ~$2590 + shipping
Please note that any alternative solution involving bookshelf speakers will need to include the price for stands/wallmounts in that $2750. Also note that I can't wait for parts on the used markets, as this entire system needs to be ordered in the next few days.
Any ideas would be much appreciated. Please and thank you!
