5.1.4

  1. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I’m trying to decide between these two options. I currently have one Defiance X12 ordered for a 5.1.4 setup in my basement den, but I’m wondering if I would be better off with two X10s. The X12 has a significantly lower frequency extension at 15 Hz, so I hesitate downgrading to two subs whose...
  2. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    I've now a huge fan of this forum! I've got so much great advice for designing a dedicated home theater room. I'm currently finishing my basement and want to have a home theater room that will work. The room I have available is about 14.5' W x 15.5' D x 7.5 H. The problem is that I have a duct...
  3. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    My home theater room is small (1300 cu ft.) with a LG 65EF9500 TV, a Denon AVR-x1400h receiver, streaming content through Apple TV 4K, three 12"subwoofers, and the normal complement of FR, FC, FL, SR, SL TMR and TML speakers placed exactly as Dolby recommends for 5.1.2 ATMOS. The sound is great...

  5. Speakers
    Hi, I am planning to build a 5.1.4 system around the Holiday sales. I have a budget of around $1000-1100 for the speakers only. I'm set on Klipsch speakers but I'm confused by the sheer number of models (everytime I think I have an idea of the line up, I see more models pop up in sites). I...
  6. Speakers
    Hey all, I'm moving into a new house and want to set up a 5.1.4 system in the living room, which is pretty large and open. There is currently a built in unit along the wall, which I plan on taking down and replacing with drywall. My couch will end up being about 15 feet from the tv, slightly...
  7. Speakers
    I’m running into a placement issue with my speakers. I’m planning on using KEF in wall speakers for front LCR, side surround speakers and ceiling atmos speakers. For the rear speakers, will use a pair of KEF bookshelf speakers. The issue is the side surround speakers. Because of a window on the...

    I'm building a house and need to decide what wiring I want to have installed in the Media Room. The room is 10.5x11.5. I would like to be able to sit at least 6 people in there which would require 2 rows of seating with the back row against the wall. The attached diagram shows what 2 rows...

    From the AVS Forum archives (posted June 2017)... Dolby Atmos is understandably popular with the home theater crowd, thanks to the height effects 3D immersive audio provide. From flyovers to raindrops on a roof, having sounds come from above is more realistic than traditional two-dimensional...
  10. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    So I have bestbuy out in my house right now. They are installing a 5.1.4 atmos system and its not making much sense. 1) I got the Martin Logan ElectroStatic speakers. I understood that these have to be further from each other than the couch is from the wall. Is that correct? If so, they did...

  12. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hi everybody, So I'm pretty new at this whole thing, but I've pre-wired for a 5.1.4 setup and also have two ceilings in a second room ran back to a central point. I'm trying to identify a receiver that can handle this for not too much money (
  13. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I'm in process of building a new home which has a dedicated media room, which in my opinion is not ideal in it's layout or shape. I'm wanting to fit a 5.1.4 setup in there but am struggling with where to place my rear surrounds. I'm contemplating doing in-wall speakers that would be placed...
  14. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    This is my design for this small dedicated home theater. I'm doing a 5.1.4 setup, but I'm just seeking some guidance on whether or not my speaker placement is good. Specifically if it's a problem for the right surround to be so much farther away than the left, and if the atmos speakers are...
  15. Soundbars
    You can count on Vizio to offer an excellent soundbar system at a very attractive price. And now, that includes three models with Dolby Atmos compatibility. Vizio has announced pricing and availability on three new Dolby Atmos soundbar systems. The company's 36" 5.1.2 system is...
  16. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hello and thank you in advance, I know there are countless 5.1.2 vs. 7.1 threads out there, so I'm not intending to start another one of those. But I am looking for some help as I plan out my entertainment room. The wife and I are finally building a house and I delightfully opted for a...

    Hello All, Long time reader first time poster! :) I was hoping to get some advice on the attached speaker placement. The image is NOT to scale and is very rough, but it gives the basics. I know the published specs call for the atmos speakers to be inline with the front left and right...
  18. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    AVS Forum members, Would like you to share some of your expertise. I have large great room that is 23' deep, 20' wide and '10' tall. Would like to put in a 5.1.4 Atmos home theater audio system. A 7.1.4 system won't work because of the adjacent kitchen and lack of a side location due to...
