  1. Okay! I think I am going to get the following: Klipsch RP-160M Bookshelf Speakers Klipsch RP-250C Center Channel Speaker Klipsch RP-240S Surround Speakers VTF-2 MK5 Subwoofer I will place the bookshelf speakers on 30" stands (which should place the tweeters a tiny bit above ear level). And I will probably mount the surround speakers on the ceiling on the sides of the couch, facing the couch, angled downward toward the MLP.
  2. Hi! Thanks for your response. Good point about bass efficiency with bookshelves. For the receiver, I am looking at one of the following: Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A870BL Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A780 Yamaha RX-V685BL
  3. Hello! First post here. I am setting up my first 5.1 system. I’ve been using the same computer speakers and subwoofer since high school 15 years ago, and it's time to upgrade. Klipsch seems great, so I will probably will go with this brand; although I am open to other brands and also to mixing brands (e.g. use a non-Klipsch subwoofer). My room is 11’x16’ with 8’ ceilings and 1408 cubic square feet. It is on the second story of an older home. I have a projector with a 100” screen mounted in the middle of one of the 16’ walls. A cloth-covered couch is along the other wall facing the projector. Here are some photos of the room (it's a mess because I just moved): imgur.com/a/Ncd155u. When seated on the couch, the viewer's head will be 10' from the projector screen/wall. The center speaker and receiver will sit on top of a cube shelf I bought from IKEA. I am trying to decide what speakers to buy. Considering the 11’x16’ room size, I am unsure whether I should buy floor speakers or bookshelf speakers (on 24” stands). I will use this sound system for movie-watching and for listening to music (streamed from Spotify over Bluetooth or WiFi to the receiver) throughout the day. I have been eyeballing the following: Klipsch RP-250F Tower/Floorstanding Speakers Klipsch RP-440C Center Channel Speaker Klipsch RP-240S Surround Speakers Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer But I wonder if this is too much for the room. Maybe not? And of course I am very open to other alternatives and suggestions for different Klipsch/other speaker models (e.g. Bookshelf). What do you all think?
