Well I'm finally in a place where I can begin planning to build my next dedicated HT. I have a 12' x 18' space with 7.5' ceilings to work with. I have a number of questions right off the get go, so let's begin!
Here is an overhead look at how I see the room laying out:
Here is a list of gear that I have and gear that I'm considering:
NEW - Projector: Sony VPL-HW45ES
Currently using: 5.1-channel home theater receiver/amplifier with 375 watts of total power (5 x 75W)
Considering: Denon AVR-E400 - 90 Watt - 8 Ohm - 20 - 20000 Hz - THD 0.08% - 7 channels (surround)
125 Watt - 6 Ohm - at 1 kHz - THD 0.7% - 7 channels (surround)
L/R Front speakers:
Currently using: Klipsch Synergy F-10 - 8 ohms compatible 100W RMS / 400W Peak
Considering: Klipsch RP-280F - 8 ohms compatible power handling: up to 150 watts RMS (600 watts peak)
L/R Surround speakers:
NEW: Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-502S
NEW: Amplifier: Outlaw: The Model 7000x
NEW: 110" screen
My first question is, am I going to be overpowering this space by going with a bigger receiver, amp and speakers? I have always had lower end Klipsch so I don't know what to expect with the Reference line vs. the cheaper Synergy line.
