I'm looking to purchase 6 speakers to mount on the walls, 3 on the left and 3 on the right (see image). The size is approx 40x20. I'd like the speakers to sound good and have good loudness. They don't need to be as loud as lets say DJ speakers, but they need to serve a few purposes:


1. Two of the 6 will be switchable to surrounds

2. Using them for whole house audio at moderate levels

3. Need them to have decent volume and bass for when I have parties, a DJ station (Serato, Serato ITCH) will be hooked up to them.


So I was wondering if you had any suggestions? I was looking at getting JBL Control 29AV's but don't want to spend $400 per speaker. I was looking to spend maybe $4-500 per pair x 3.


I'd like them to have a decent look as well, more long rectangular than a square box. I can get good deals on Canton & Boston Acoustics thru a friend so I was looking at maybe the Ergo 610's or GLE 410.2 because they are really low profile. I'm just wondering if 100w per speaker will give me what I need in that room. It's also very echo'y because its a concrete floor, tons of windows, etc.


Oh, I do have a sub location setup for that room as well, in the middle of the bench on the right hand side, so that will help out with the lows.


Any help appreciated, thanks!

one sub will probably not be enough, or cover enough volume - you might consider two or three spaced out within the space.


some internet direct companies you might check out are Ascend Acoustics, Emotiva, and SVSound

you might also consider "in-wall" speakers, and some very efficient ones are Klipsch
http://www.klipsch.com/na-en/product...tural-speaker/ you will need to look for decent sales to keep them within your budget


with all the hard surfaces within the room, you will also need to consider some acoustic treatments to tame the echo and reverbarations down, as well.

Thanks,

I didn't want to do in-walls because I was planning on being able to angle the speakers down towards the floor, instead of parallel to each other. Plus it will be easier to fill in holes from mounting brackets if I ever decide to sell the home (the bamboo wall)


Thanks for the sub suggestions, I'll prob see how it feels with 1 and then move on from there.


I'll checkout those dealers.


I'm not sure what to do about the echo, I don't want to put in any treatments that is going to mess with the look of the room. So its going to be tough. I'm sure once I have furniture it won't be as bad but who knows...
