Hi AJ et al.!
I have looked at some of the posts on this thread and have some questions, please. I am trying to decide on several speaker options, some of which I have in hand as well as an aver or prepare HtP-1, for my basement 17X14 by approx. 7.5 feet room. I went into the sim on my version of REW but don't see a way to add 16 channels, if that even maked sense for me. Is there a method for me to measure my room that can be used ahead of speaker in wall installation, which is a big step? I have several Apple products, my main is a Mac Book pro 10.10.5 with REW 5-13. I have several mics, all the way from Monoprice to Neumann U87. I have iPad Pro IOS and iPad 7th gen A10 Fusion chip A10.3" and an iPad Pro 12.9" running 13.3.
I have a new basement Theater room approx. 17' X 14'X avg. 7.75'H, with MLP either in a row of four theatre seats at 14-15' or a beanbag style single chain at 10-11' FROM SCREEN. Approx. 1,950cubic feet-lotta irregular headroom HVAC , etc.
I have two wisdom in wall https://www.wisdomaudio.com/products/l75i/
(with SC-1)which I have used in previous theaters as L &R biamped, but now have two DCM Time Windows as L & R https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_li...e-window.shtml
I Hve two Salk Ht3 speakers with back ports, as sides, but I think either the Time Windows, Wisdoms or Salks will be L & R PhNTOM CENTER), while the sides will be in wall Wisdom P6i https://www.wisdomaudio.com/products/p6i/
new in box
I have an old Velodyne FSR15 sub and two Widom in wall S90i subs https://www.wisdomaudio.com/products/s90i/
new in box
I also have three Martin Logan Vanquish ceiling speakers (one still NIB)
I was planning on maybe getting 3 Martin Loganhttps://nationwidestereo.com/product/martin-logan-electromotion-r-ceiling-8-inch-speaker/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwzN71BRCOARIsAF8pjfhfq52EXiYCnSkCmY2 CWcVsHZt_3XdRtSAKowVXSXvxEm81PJ91v48aAtVEEALw_wcB speakers for additional in ceiling due to joists being 10.5" apart, but don't know if the Vanquish can hang below the joists(no hard ceiling planningon black fabric) or if sound bleed is a non starter.
As an alternative, the 8inch ML will fir in beween joists or I could get the Klipsch https://www.klipsch.com/products/rp-...und-speakerfor
optional in ceiling and on/in wall locations. This I know is difficult, but trying to get gi=uidance before I cut into the sheet rock etc..
And using two of the Pradigm L, R & Center, AS REAR SPEAKERS. THE ROOM IS FRAMED IN 2X6 METAL and I mounted the JVC rs 500 projector back of or to the sheetrock painted wall 124"wide 16X9 .
I also have 6 Realtraps Bass traps-4 for corner and 2 designed for 1st reflection points.
Seating 4 theatre recliners and one or two bean bag style chair 11' and 114-15' from screen.
Running a Sherwood rs972 (haven't run the Trinnov option yet but liked it a lot in years gone by BTW, I have a 7.1 Meridian suite back on the 90's, with 5 of the speakers mounte in sights, so sort of got used to that idea. Also have a Halo A51 for biamping the wisdom L & R if I install those, or just as a 5 channel amp. I do have anther Sherwood AVR that I could use as spare amps.
Installing two in wall Wisdom subs, in wall Wisdom Sage speakers (L&R flanking the screen 124"wide, near corners), In wall Wisdom side speakers s a fair bit of work and may not be the best option. No way to put them on the wall BTW. Any advice much appreciated.
Thank you very much
