  1. Speakers
    Hi, I install rear height on wall speaker for the Atmos(my receiver support that Onkyo Tx-NR7100). Is it better to point the speaker down but alignment with the listener or point down but alignment with the front speaker? I post a picture of the setup, and I pointed then directly on the...

    Hi all! I hope I'm posting in the right place. After quite some time I finally pulled the trigger on a pair of Polk R100. I'm very happy with that (😄), but since I moved I'm not sure on how to position them in my new studio/gaming room (🤩). I plan to expand this setup to a humple 4.1, so...

    Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to HT but have been reading as much as I can on this forum. It's been such an amazing resource, so thank you all! I've been planning out a new HT in our new house as much as I can. We haven't moved in yet so I might be getting a bit ahead of myself since not having...

    Looking at revising my theater room and going from a 110” screen to a 135” screen. I have two rows of seating with the main viewing position 9’7” away. The updated view angle would be 56 degrees (see picture/sketch). Curious if this will be too big of a screen or if anyone has additional...

    I am looking to install in wall speakers in my open plan kitchen/dining/living room. The room is approximately 20'x30' with 10.5' concrete ceilings. I cannot install ceiling speakers. I currently have a pair of Focal Chorus 816 in the "living room" third of the room, but I would like to not...
  6. Speakers
    Hello AVS members -- I have been lurking for a few weeks and am stoked at everyone's insights and advice. My girlfriend and I just moved to our tiny NYC apartment and I'm deciding on which speaker setup to go with our space... We listen to a lot of music in the apartment (so music and movies...
  7. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I have a medium sized rectangular room. To the left of the screen is a door that would force me to position a ported sub so that it's facing the other sub on the opposite side of the screen, rather than having it front facing. In other words, have one sub front facing and the other facing...
  8. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hi, I am moving to a new house. One that has a better home theater layout in the basement that what I currently have. I have a Hsu VTF-15H MK2 subwoofer, which is relatively massive as far as floor space is concerned. I know that most people have their sub in their room. Since this room is in...
  9. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hello! I am building a 7.1.4 system in my house as part of a remodel! I am doing all in-wall speakers from Monolith by Monoprice and they are all set in place already and nearly invisible. The last piece is understanding where the subwoofer would go and my wife wants it to be as discrete as...

    Is the speaker by the door fine having a open space behind it? And should the one by the wall have an acoustical panel behind it ? I saw on a few websites the speaker should be about 2 feet from the wall but i dont have space to move it farther away.

    Hey yall, This is my first post here, and I am sure these questions have all been asked before, so please forgive me. I've been avidly reading through the forums and there is a TON of info to digest. BLUF: I need help with placement to create a theater in an aircraft hangar, and I'd like...
  12. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Is there a way to know the minimum/optimal distance to sit from a speaker? I really need to invest in a whole new home setup (50% music, 50% HT). Like many, I have side-speaker placement issues and they are going to end up very close to the seating position. But I'm also thinking about the...

    My first post on this site! I am going to build some ported studio monitors, based on one of Troels Gravesen's designs, however I am unsure about placement and whether I should build with a front or rear port for this scenario (either or is fine according to the build page). Below is a basic...
  14. Speakers
    Hi everyone, I'm new around here but found lots of resources and advice. After some months of lurking, I've set my eyes on QA 3030i + the 3090ci center for my small living room (10' x 12'). I'm looking forward to their described signature (couldn't test because COVID), their bass, but I fear...

  16. Speakers
    Hi All I hope my clickbait title attracts enough attention to you guys. I have assembled a pretty decent surround setup (I think) in my living room. It is used for music, games, movies and tv shows. Details: AVR: Onkyo TX NR 676e Front L/R: KLIPSCH R-26F Center: KLIPSCH R-25C Surround L/R...
  17. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I'm wondering if there's a better way of setting up my tv and speakers. I have a 55in tv with 3.1 speaker setup. The center channel is an Infinity ref RC263. I was intending to put the center on the top shelf, but the steel bar covers about .25in of the tweeter. So I'm thinking I should get a...
  18. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hey, all! I’m new to the forum, but have been doing a lot of research (probably too much) about how I should position our basement home theater/family room. As the title states, how much can an AVR overcome speakers that are near the seating? To give you an idea on what I’m thinking, my...
