New home theatre

I am new to this forum and new to home theatre systems as well! I need help on deciding speakers. I have a 17 ft x 17 ft theatre room. I have the 80" Sharp AQUOIS 3D HD LED flat panel TV mounted on the wall. The walls are pre-Wired for a 7.1 set up. What do you guys recommend for speakers? Thank you.

Salk surrounds with dual (minimum) LMS Ultra's in sealed boxes handling the Subwoofer duties... Depending on what version of the Salks you get, a flat response (which is always the goal) of about 110db down to 10Hz should easily be obtainable.

I don't own Salks, but I know a lot of other people on the forum do and they can weigh in. I've heard nothing but great things about them and they are very highly regarded in the industry.

The LMS Ultra's are regarded as one of the all around best performing subs in the world. Their may be a few subs with higher output (SPL) and their maybe a few regarded as having better SQ, but i'm not aware if any other sub that can give you the best of both worlds like the Ultra's do.

Thought I'd throw out my opinion based on your purchase of the 80" LED screen... If you can afford that piece of kit, dropping $10K-$15K+ on your speakers shouldn't be a huge deal... ;-)

Or you could tell people your budget so they don't throw out crazy suggestions... Though the suggestions I provided seem reasonable to some degree...

I'd bet you are going to get A LOT of opinions though.

Re: New home theatre

First off - welcome to HTS!

I moved your thread to our Home Audio Speakers forum. If you could, please let us know a budget you have in mind so we can tailor recommendations accordingly.

Re: New home theatre

Yep, budget would help.

The options for 7 channels for $1,000 are different than $20,000.

Are you looking for a sub recommendation in addition to the 7?
