I’m finishing up the basement with a 7.1 movie theatre. The room length is 17 (L), 14 (w), 9 (h). I’m struggling on what in-wall Klipsch to get. The stereo I’m using is 125-150 watts per channel. I’m far from an expert and need assistance on what in wall speakers to get. The person helping me has suggested the following speaker type set-up.
center - any 2 way speaker (will use my ref-52 center, I’ll use this till I determine optimal screen hight.)
front left/right - 3 way speaker
Sides and rear - any 2 way speaker
base - reusing from my ref-52
when looking at the following speakers my friend helping suggested the 75w rms is too low for the stereo I will be using. Can someone elaborate on this?
For my left and rights
I've been looking at
R-5502 (Power Handling 75w/300w)
Pro-250-RPW (Power Handling 75w/300w)
THX-8000-L but it’s overkill for the room size and too pricey right now.
i have no clue on the sides and rear, please any suggestions that would make this theatre sound spectacular. I did build a riser and I’m anticipating 5 chairs on the back row back against the wall and 3 chairs neon the riser.
thank you for your help in advance.

I’m finishing up tiling the bathroom today will get a pic of the full room loaded up later today. For now all I have is this.
