My basement is nearly finished. My entertainment room is 13'x20' with 8' ceilings. Walls on all 4 sides. The listening area is in the center of the long wall across the narrow dimension (13'). That puts me 10'-11' from the TV and fronts.
We watch some DVD's. Depending on who goes to the video store we typically end up with action or drama. We don't typically listen loudly but enjoy a "full" sound experiance. I'm most concerned about clear voice than loosening mortar with base.
We listen to a fair amount of music. Mostly Rock and Pop. Occasionally loud (when my wife is out)
but usually at what i'd call moderate levels. Music quality is more important than Home Theater.
$1,800 is the top end I can spend on speakers. The big question, What should I get?
My thoughts based on little knowledge are M60's, QS4's, VP150, EP175. I'm not bound to this so if you have a better idea let it rip.
My concerns/questions with this selection:
1) room size. It's a relatively shallow room. What problems am I likely to encounter? Is this a real concern?
2) Sub - Do I need one with the M60's?
3) Would M22's be more appropriate up front?
Thanks for your input.
