I posted a while back looking for good on-wall / in-wall. After some review of pre-sheetrock + stud finder, I've arrived at the conclusion I absolutely cannot do in-wall speakers due to a diagonal brace to the right of the TV. TV will ultimately be mounted to the wall, I've been waiting on a speaker setup before pulling the trigger.
This is where it gets tricky, my wife will not allow floor standing speakers or bookshelf speakers. Ideally I'd have L/R on the wall and a proper center in the piece of furniture, or on-wall dual center that can handle 90%+ TV / Movie admirably for the type of space.
I thought about doing either:
- concerned about the 150Hz xover; or
Artison Masterpiece Dual Center LCR
- Assuming same low frequency limitations
Totem III - but could not use a Totem III on wall center. The center has to be either incorporated in the L/R or in the furniture (25" internal width)
Martin Logan SLM XL - if all is lost and I go the budget route.
With the above I had planned to do dual SVS-SB2000 subs getting both the L/R and LFE to allow them to augment the speakers on each side of the TV Again the wife through a wrench in this plan as I'm allowed one sub, to the right of the TV stand. I could do in-wall subs behind it, but that feels like I'm just over complicating things.
Unfortunately based on all of the options I've thrown out to my wife, this has now become a largely aesthetic decision. I'd still like something that makes movies as enjoyable as possible as this will be the primary room for us for the foreseeable future.
Previous setup was Episode 700 LCR in-wall + Sunfire HRS-12. If I could get back to at least that, or exceed it I would be happy.
