Setting up a 5.1.4 system, currently only have the sub (HSU) from a previous setup. The system will primarily be used for movies, sports. Any music would be for parties etc. not typical sit and listen to music type experience. That being said, I'd like music to sound good too
The setup is shown in the attached diagram. Essentially 12.5' feet from the TV, and 10.5' width between L/R speakers. The trick to this setup is that it's not a dedicated HT room, it's essentially a corner of finished basement, so open on the left and back (facing the TV).
Looking at a budget of $3k for the speakers, but willing to move slightly if warranted. I have a Onkyo TX-RZ830 to drive the system.
For the LCR, I'm looking for in-wall or on-wall. Concerned book-shelfs would be too bulky - will stick too far at from the wall. This room is a family room and with kids on the younger side, floor standing speakers and speaker stands are out,.
Ceiling speakers would be traditional round in-ceiling.
Surrounds would be bracket mounted, as there is no wall on the back/left corner (but there is a column I can attach to (shown as small circle in the diagram)
Thanks for any thoughts you can give.
