Thanks for checking out my thread.
I'm seeking help in improving the sound in this theater. This room has a 7.2.2 setup with SVS primes all around and dual SVS PB-2000 subs
and SVS Prime Satellites
handling the height channels. I have a few questions about improving my setup that I'll list below...
The sound is okay
on the front row seating, but the rear row has AWFUL echos and reverb to the point where I really dislike sitting back there. The "problematic" area that I have marked on the diagram is a section of the room that's cut in like a really shallow closet, where I actually have a side channel mounted into (SVS Prime Bookshelf
speaker). I'm not sure if sound treatment can actually fix this, as the speaker is ported in the rear, which is behind a wall, which I'm not sure exactly what's happening to the sound... But I know it can't be good... Right? So I'm wondering if replacing the bookshelf speakers with these surround's
would be the solution? The speaker itself pokes out from behind the wall, but the rear of the speaker is behind the wall.
Also, the bass in the rear seats echo pretty heavy as well. The rear row sits on a insulated vented riser, so is this actually helping or harming thesound? Could this have anything to do with the echo's I'm getting back there?
I'm looking to install sound treatment as well but I'm not quite sure where to start as far as placement. I need to do some more reading here on the forums to clear that up, but help would be appreciated.
And the final thing I'm seeking advice on is the height channels. I'm currently using SVS Prime Satellites, which are hanging from the ceiling, but I would like to install a more seamless in-ceiling solution for aesthetics and something that's going to match the sound stage of a SVS Prime system. Any recommendations?
All help with this setup is highly appreciated! Thanks again.
