There really is no "good" wireless solution for rear speakers though SVS might be worth a try. The transmitter package is $120 and the rear speakers would have to be powered and you'd still have to deal with either two long RCA cables going to powered speakers or two long speaker cable runs going from the rear amplifier to the rear speakers.Hello all, looking for some help picking out a sound system for a large basement room (about 14' x 40'), I don't have huge interest in getting perfect sound to the later 20-25' of the room, but I know the overall size will impact the setup. In the future I would hopefully port this system to a different more normally sized room after moving (in a few years). I'm considering Atmos in the future, but not interested in doing wall speakers presently. Would prefer rear speakers to be wireless.
1) Your budget - around $1500
2) Your listening interests: relatively equal mix of movies/gaming/music
3) Your existing audio equipment (make/models): None, new to the area of real sound systems
4) The size of your room. approximately 15x40, TV and furniture on one end setup to be about 14x20. Ceiling is 8.5 ft
5) Any placement restrictions - None
6) Any aesthetic or size concerns - None
7) Any equipment you are already considering (or would not consider). Interested in Emotiva T1s (look to be on sale for $500/pair presently)
8) Any particular audio sonic signatures you know you prefer - None known
Mostly looking for advice on a receiver to power the T1s, center, (preferably) wireless surrounds. Likely start without a sub but I imagine I'm likely to add one. Thanks in advance.
If the rears must be "wireless" or nothing I say go with nothing.
Running rear cables can be done alongside the baseboards, (there are even "hider" kits to cover them), or under carpet.
