I'm about to get a pair of M60ti's, a pair of QS8's and a VP100. I have a room that I have been slowly converting into a home theater. The next couple of posts will describe my room, furnishings and A/V setup. I wanna know if I'm crazy, or on track. Comments?????????

you can't go wrong with that setup.

what size is your room?
will you be using a sub?
what amp/receiver will be driving those speakers?

John, the whole family is certifiable. But we're a hell of a lot of fun.

Here's the room...

So let's take a tour...

Walking along the balcony you enter the room from the northeast corner.

The room is 20' x 20' x 10' with 2' beveled corners between the ceiling and walls. There's a ceiling fan right in the middle of the room.

The north wall has no openings or windows and is an internal wall.

The west wall is an exterior wall with two large windows and a window seat below them.

The south wall is an exterior wall with no openings or windows and is an internal wall.

The east wall is an interior wall with two large openings that overlook the space above the entryway downstairs.

Now here's what's in it...



The east wall has a bookshelf under the openings with a glass corner desk in the southeast corner.

The south wall starts with the glass corner desk and has 8' tall bookshelves all along the wall and wraps around the southwest corner.

The west wall is pretty much unchanged.

The north wall has deep bookshelves that are 6' tall all along until near the doors. There's a section that's low that's offset to the west of center. More about the reason for the offset in the next post.

There's a couch centered on the low section of the north wall bookshelves. Behind the couch is the foosball table.

Pretty good sized room, I think you mentioned a West wall twice, but I figured out you were talking about the East wall overlooking the downstairs.

I would say that would be a prett cool HT room. You may want to look at the VP150 for that sized room, and I would also recommend a sub. What are you plans for movie watching? Depending on your furniture arangement, the North or South walls would be awesome for a front projector to get a true movie experience.

And here's the A/V equipment....



The red thing is a ceiling mounted Infocus DLP projector that's offset west of the ceiling fan (AHA! That's why the offset in the shelves and couch placement!) There's a 76" diagonal screen mounted in the opening in the bookshelves.

The green towers are the Axiom M60ti's

The blue bar on the opening in the north bookshelf is the Axiom VP100

The orange boxes are the Axiom QS8s mounted on the bevelled corners between the walls and ceilings.

The black block with the circle on front in the north bookshelf is the as-of-yet absent sub. I intend to take out a shelf and have it sitting on the floor rather than sitting on a shelf.

The receiver, tuner, dvd player, vcr, etc are on the shelves under the screen.
