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?
