Re: boom speaker problem

Hi ray, and welcome to the Shack.

Well, tell us a little about your goals -- what are you listening habits, how loud do you want it, will you be only movies (or also music)?

What's your budget?

Most people probably aren't going to have anything nice to say about Bose; you should easily be able to get more performance for less money that you'd pay for their products.

Hi Ray and welcome to the Shack!

Klipsch is in a completely different league than Bose and the JBL package you are considering. If you have a dedicated HT room, I'd probably go with something better like the Klipsch. You could step up to the JBL E Series, E90, EC35, E20... or whatever took their place. If you can afford the SVS package, I'd opt for one of those... SBS or SCS with either a PB10-NSD or the PB12-NSD, because the subwoofer is going to be so much better than what you will get in many of these lesser expensive packages.

What are the dimensions of your room?

Any openings into other rooms that are not being shut off?

What is your budget?

Hello,

Please whatever you do don't purchase that system. Of just send me the $700 bucks if you want to throw your money away.

What is your budget and what requirements (Size of speaker, wall mount, ect.) are a must for your new system.

And speakers sound so different from one another. Have you auditioned anything yet?

Re: boom speaker problem

Thank you Otto and Sonnie for giving me that warm welcome, advice, and for replying quickly. I have a room that only has a door and a window. I will be watching movies, listening to music, and gaming. I donít know the dimensions but it is in a shape of a trapezoid. I donít care about money because I am planning to spend 25 grand overall on my new home theater system. Iím spending this much because I donít want to upgrade for another ten years, so I want the good stuff.

You state your spending 25K on a new home theater system, but your also looking at a $700 speaker system? What are you spending the other 24.3K on?

Re: boom speaker problem

So you haven't even built the room yet? If not, the first thing you should do is go over to Home Theater Design and Construction and figure this out. This will have somewhat of an impact on what else you do and how much else you will have left over for equipment. From the ground up it helps to know how much room you have to work with and it would help to see some design plans, etc.

You need to break up your budget for each item your looking to purchase.

This isn't written in stone, but a good guide line for your spending. Speakers are the most important in achieving good sound quality. Electronics second. Room acoustics third.

Speakers-50%
Electronics-25%
Acoustics-25%

The only way anyone can help it with accurate numbers. You can put a system together for $1000-an unlimited amount.

Re: boom speaker problem

It seems that so many people are underselling the importance of good audio these days. I tend to focus on a lot of audio issues on my podcast becasuse we are constantly inundated with advertising for new TVs. Even the people reviewing HDTV tend to talk soley about the Video quality, and never touch on the audio.

Do not underestimate the importance of audio in your setup. Bose does something right in it's acoustimass presentation, which is show a beautiful video with high and low quality sound (well, as High quality as Boise gets anyway). As they say, the pictures show you where you're at, but th audio gives you the feeling of actually being there.
