Home Theater Speaker Questions

Hey guys - could use some help and recommendations for a speaker setup that would work best for the area I'm trying to setup a home theater in - it will really just be used for movies, and sometimes live sports. It's an upstairs bonus room that measures 17x28'. It was pre-wired for in-ceiling speakers (7.1 pre-wire), but honestly it's pretty open/easy for me to re-run anything so don't want to be restricted/hung up by that! I'm a huge fan of Klipsch so would love to stay within their products, and ideally would be spending under $3k just on the speakers, but it can be a rough budget - I do have a Klipsch sub already (RW-12D) and a Sony receiver (STRDN1080) that I'd like to use, but if one/both need to be replaced, so be it.

What I'm struggling with is the storage cabinet we have wall mounted on the front wall (picture attached) - it offsets the screen to the right, but it also doesn't give me great space for floor standing speakers, unless I just set them forward in front of the cabinet. Really open to any ideas/suggestions, and really appreciate any help!

TV or Projector?

If projector I would DIY a acoustic transparent screen using Seymour AV fabric. Then I would do inwalls for LCR. I helped my dad do his and we went with elac debut inwalls for LCR and it sounds great. Klipsch makes inwalls too.

If TV I would still try inwalls for LCR. Possibly bookshelf speakers but you need them out away from the wall and not on that cabinet where it will reflect sound.

- 6 BA CR6 array center channel, QSC AD-S82 L/R, 4 jbl 8330a surr , 8 jbl 12" subs w/Inuke 6000. JVC rs420, Denon x4000, Sony x800 -

Can it be removed?
