You do have enough speakers!!! I see two pairs in the picture already, but that's beside the point. What are the speakers?
My room is only 16ft wide so not that wide, but being open floor plan it is about 35ft long, so plenty of room for the speakers to unload into.
The Tower speakers are Wharfedale Diamond 9.6 with 2x8" woofers
each in a 3.5 configuration.
The Box Speakers are DIY with CTS 12" bass driver (3-way).
Considering I build them for pretty cheap, they sound very good. I think I originally had less that $100 each in them. But I rebuilt them into the cabinets you see and the re-build cost more than the original speakers and cabinets. (org=1978, rebuild=1983)
You can hear both speakers here, and compare them -
They both sound pretty good to my ears.
As to having FOUR Speakers, that's just the way it worked out. I got a deal on the Wharfedale, but when I considered selling the DIY 12", there is no amount of money I could reasonably get for them, that would allow me to buy anything I wanted or needed. That is, they were more valuable to have then they were to sell.
I had an Onkyo amp on the DIY-12" and the Yamaha on the Wharfedale, but I upgraded the amp to a Rotel RA-1570, and shifted the Yamaha down to the DIY-12".
Makes for fantastic movies, and excellent music .... all things considered.
Just a bit more info.
