Will you toe them in at all, i.e. angle relative to the side walls? Just curious, not sure whether that would make a difference or not. Might depend on where you sit.
Nothing wrong with having the surrounds on the side walls. That is pretty normal.My room is a rectangle 14x20 and unfortunately is not dedicated and I must have my projector on the long wall with a couch up against the opposite wall. This means my surrounds will be on my sided not back.
at least yours is ideal for your center seats.
And here I was assuming a hillbilly like you would have just duct-taped them to the walls. :RI have a pipe running up the wall... with a pull wire. I can drill a hole in the ceiling, which will be much mo betta than trying to cut holes.
Gaffers tape... :TI would have to cut thru 5/8" sheetrock, 3/4" plywood, and 1/2" sheetrock... so a very small drill hole that the round jacket speaker wire fits in will work a whole lot easier for me. I'll stick some black heat shrink around the speaker wire and with the black ceiling you'll never know its there.
Uh... yeah... hillbilly style. :bigsmile:
I luv my duct tape too!
A...M...A...Z...E...D......Great looking room and now that you've had the SVS Ultra speakers for a few months I'm curious as to your thoughts. Still as happy with them since you first set them up? Do you feel there is room for improvement? Any additional thoughts would be appreciated as I'm auditioning speakers and the Ultras are also on my list. I'm also looking into Ascend Acoustics Towers with the RAAL tweeters and matching Horizon center. For the last 16+ years, I've been using B&W 804 Matrix speakers within my system and I'm finally getting the itch to try something new. It's not a dedicated room, but I do have various panels and traps throughout. Main use is HT, but we do enjoy listening to music; however, my critical listening habits are few and far between watching movies. Room is roughly 17 x 19.
Curious what you have in there now and if you have ever listened to the Tekton Pendragons.I don't have the SVS speakers any longer (I don't keep anything very long being in the audio business), but I can attest to the fact they are next to the best speakers I have had in my room... only surpassed by the $10K MartinLogan Montis... and then not by very much of a margin. I don't think you will go wrong with them. Plus... if you are in the U.S. you can try them out for 45 days... it's risk free. As with any speaker... for critical music listening, placement is a key factor. Not nearly as critical for movies, and the Ultras are absolutely killer on movies too.
