Yeah, I know Klipsch has a reputation for being amongst the brightest speakers - I think they'll perform perfectly as surrounds, even though they're not the highest-end Klipsch speakers.

They actually arrived as I was typing up this response.

I have a 2-family home with my tenant below me. She's a 75 year old single woman and is such a good tenant that I totally respect her and don't ever want to do anything to make her move out. I have both a 12" sub in my living room above her (SVS SB2000) and a 10" sub in my office that's above her bedroom. I keep it modest, and the most she hears during her waking hours is a heavily muffled hum or mild thump. When I see her car is gone though...it's "game on."

You can use a base such as an Aurelec SubDude to help even more.

The benefits of adding something like that are enormous, and not to be dismissed.
Ken,

Interested in the Auralex base that you mentioned. Would this provide additional benefit if I'm already using the SVS isolation feet here?

I wouldn't be able to tell you for certain if the two isolation system used together offer any additional benefit because I own neither one. Sorry.


I do think that together they would but cannot confirm it.

Hi Folks, Just found the forum and this is my first post. I've looked at some of your setups and am amazed. Unfortunately, my budget is much more modest.



But I've managed to setup a reasonable system, if it IS sort of Frankenstein setup. I had a pretty good room to start with for a dedicated home theater. It's 16 1/2' by 22 1/2' and only has one large window at the long end of the room. With black drapes and the screen coming down right in front of the window, I can make that room pitch black even on a bright sunny day.



Here's my current setup:


Theater Room

120" Da Lite Cosmopolitan powered screen
Optima UHD50 (Yes I know it has a light border, but the picture is outstanding)
Sony UBP-X1100ES Blu Ray player
Onkyo TX-RZ830 reciever

9th gen Core i7 PC for gaming and large display browsing
Fire TV box

Digital OTA converter and antenna for local TV
Pioneer HPM 1500 front speakers

Pioneer HPM 100 surround speakers

Yamaha NS-C444 center speaker (Soon to be replaced with a Klipsch RP-504C)
Two BIC Acoustech PL200 II subs



Living Room
65" Samsung 4K TV (Can't remember the model)
Sony UBP-UX80 Blu Ray player
Onkyo TX-NR686 receiver
Fire TV box
Yamaha NS-777 tower front speakers
Yamaha NS-C444 surrounds
Some crappy Panasonic center speaker from my old home theater in a box (Soon to be replaced by the NS-C444 that's currently in the theater room)
JBL PB12 Sub





The Pioneer speakers the theater room were a HUGE surprise. I originally had a 5.1 setup in the theater room with the Yamaha's that are now mostly in the living room. I bought the Pioneer speakers WAY WAY back in 1979, and they have been in storage for about the last 30 years. Vintage audio has become pretty valuable in the last few years, and I pulled all my vintage equipment out with the intentions of refurbishing it and selling it to finance my theater room upgrade. I had to re-foam the woofers on the HPM 1500's, as the foam surrounds had completely disintegrated while in storage, but everything else was still in perfect condition . Before I listed the speakers for sale, I decided to hook them up to my new home theater receiver just for the heck of it. My wife and I were simply blown away! Those 40 year old speakers sounded SO much better than the Yamaha's. The clarity of the mids and highs, and the base was MUCH harder hitting (15" woofers on the HPM 1500's). So the 40 year old speakers are staying, and now I only need to look for right and left surrounds and a set of height speakers to round out the system. I want to take advantage of the full 9.1 capability of the receiver. Any recommendations for side surrounds and height speakers would be appreciated.

Home theater:

MB Quart QL C 404 fronts
MB Quart QL C center
MB Quart QL C 54 x 4 sides and rears
(relatively recent purchase - small due to size constraints)
KEF in-ceiling Ci130QR x 4 in-ceiling
SVS SB-2000 subwoofer x 2

I do have a bit of an upgrade bug. I need a center in my bedroom setup and I'm suspicious that my main setup could use a better center. And you know how that gets you thinking of upgrading the whole set up. (Maybe to KEF? What's the bee's knees these days in a $2k budget for centers and mains? $3k?) However, I suspect the whole thing is … just fine.

I do own, and love, a pair of MB Quart QL S 830s. I've loved MB Quart since the late 90s. One thought is to just update the front three speakers with QL S models and call it a day. Or just update the center to the QL S.

You should tow your speakers in more. You are really close to that left wall and towing in will probably help a lot. I would also recommend pulling that center channel forward to the edge of that cabinet. You can put it on some felt and slide it back for the WAF if needed when not watching movies. I suspect those hard boundaries are causing issues. Give it a try and see if things improve. Looks like a fun and cozy room - well done

Thanks for the advice. Since the pic I actually did tow the l and r in a bit. I would pull the center to the front but with my ocd the wires would show. So I am sacrificing a little sound quality so I dont go crazy haha. I wanted to also move the l and right up closer but I have a 5 year old and Im paranoid hes gunna knock it over!

Yeah, I get the OCD thing 100%. My wife is a mechanical engineer and she drives me bat chit crazy at times with her OCD. That is why I suggested putting felt on the bottom so you could slide it forward during movies and back into its symmetrical, non-wiring exposed position when the lights are on
