What's not to like? Both subs are blasting output directly into the couches. Isn't that what a buttkicker does?
tripplej and Blacklightning like this.

Number 16 looks nice and clean. With those huge subs, they must make not only the room shake but the house as well. I also like the poster and the wall colors are good.

Agreed. I'm not a fan of those personally.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I'd like to see the subs properly located.(if that's not the best location already lol). I'd also like to see the center channel off the wall. I think that might make vocals tubby, and give audyssey and the like some trouble. I also agree the left side opening would probably mess up imaging. Treat the right side? I'd also like the surrounds higher. Unless of course this would be upgrade to atmos, etc. that's all I got for now. Looks nice. Warm and inviting.

All in all not a bad space. The open space to the left might be an issue for acoustics/imaging and I also agree those two subs are very different from each other and may not play well together. The cylinder is an SVS not sure what the other one is.


The "other" to me looks like a klipsch. I agree, they might not play nice, but it's possible they could. I'd use the SVS first and then try to incorporate the klipsch(if not sell it for another cylinder).

#16 looks good, nice big towers on front (a 3rd tower for center channel would be nice), or at least a bigger one.
As for the subwoofers…maybe in that spot he measured the best results and decides to place them both (but I don’t think so )

#17!!!

Thoughts? Looks like a nice use of space... but that couch might be a tad too close to the screen (given the screen size?)

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Nice use of space. You can never be too close to the screen, this way he will notice 4k.
I understand why he did the surround speakers so high up and I guess I could live with that. On the plus side this owner could add surround speakers at close to ear height and keep the ceiling speakers for atmos.

And again what is up with the center channel. I'm starting to hate center channels even more. Also I have no clue what is up with the speakers on top of the speakers. My guess is the small speakers match the center and he upgraded to towers. In any case the owner could use those as sides and do a "nice" 5.1.4 system.

This room will be very live, but since it looks like neighbors will be on the other side of the wall, I don't imagine movies will be played too loud.
