Hi Guys I am planning a new home contruction with the liberty to have a dedicated room for my 2 channel setup (Forte IIIs). I am planning a basement of size (36x54 feet) Planning to reserve around 25x15x10 for the room. I would like to know your suggestions on how should the room be designed, starting with the size first. Is there anything like ideal room size in terms of LxBxH?. Do I defenitely need acoustic treatment for 2 channel system? Also, on the rack built in the wall or free standing racks, what would be a good option. If you could suggest something or post some pics of yours dedicated rooms, that would be great. Thanks a lot.

Question on room size and potential modifications regarding Klipschorn speakers Hello Folks: (Hope this is the correct Forum) I live in New Orleans and I am thinking of buying a house (finally). So where to place my “babies”? Top contenders so far: One place had 2 adjacent rooms that were roughly 13 x 13 feet. Not certain of ceiling height, perhaps 11-12 feet. Just a divider that juts in about 18-24 inches on both sides and the top. I would likely not be inclined to take out the mini divider here. So, in a sense, a 13 x 26 foot room. Would do corner horn (3 ft width), space (2 feet), Belle or LS for center (about 2.5 ft), space (2 ft), corner horn (3 ft). Would likely have to put electronics to the side and turntable too. LS rears (I have 4 in place in NOLA now and 2 more LS2s elsewhere). No clue yet where subwoofers would go. No ATMOS set up nor receiver for it (yet…LOL). Would put couch or chair(s) just behind cross point of Khorns (I think). Rt triangle h = ab/c =81/13 = 6.23 ft, or c/2 = 6.5 ft. So the couch or chairs fit in the room with the Khorns. Not sure how far back to put the LSs, if it matters. Other place is larger, but it is more complicated My measurements were different vs realtor in part due to fireplaces and also the built in tables and bookcases in the foyer side of the living room. Etc. My measurements are true usable space. Ceiling height about 12’6” in both rooms. About 9’6” through the divider Usable width is 15’ 5” or so in the dining room and 14’ 6” max or so in the living room. About 75 inches through the divider. Length: about 15’5” in the dining room and about 14’5” in the living room. Main issue, I think is the room divider with roll out doors between rooms. These take up about 48-56 inches per side (due to doors jutting out about 8 inches per side) and 43-47 inches at the top (variation due to architectural moldings). It is a great house and as a “guest” in this 170 y o house for the next 20-30 years (if I am lucky), I would prefer not to cut into or cut out the partial partition at the sides and top. Not sure which room would get the Khorns, but likely the living room up against the front wall and windows. Couch or chairs would be about 7.5-8 feet back. LSs would be in the dining room I guess, but unless placed a few feet to the center of the room, or angled in towards the couch, would I just end up with an acoustic “hot mess”? Is this how folks would do it, please see diagram (approx scales for Khorn, Belle, and LaScala cut outs)? Thx in advance From NOLA with love Possible set up for Khorns Belle and LaScalas at 813.ppt
Good morning all, I currently have an older Klipsch soundbar. (I believe it is the r10b) This room is fairly large (20x20 w/ 10'6" ceilings) and has large pocket doors on either end that open up to the rest of the main level of the house. The current setup sounds fine as long as I am the only one home. When my wife and son are home there is always background noise that I can't overcome with volume from this sound bar. My question is, will one of the new higher end soundbars perform much better in this situation? (RSB-11 or RSB-14)
Greetings everyone! I'm new to this forum, but I've really wanted to give it a try. About 10 years ago we purchased our first Klipsch 5.1 setup for our living room: L/R - Synergy F-1's (bi-amped on a 7.2 Yamaha) C - Synergy C-2 Sur - Synergy S-1's SW - Sub-12 Open floor dimensions: 24' W x 28' L x 8' H (living room, kitchen, dining room) The setup is great! No complaints, and the sound is amazing in our open floor-plan living room space. I'm very aware that in today's Klipsch world, this is considered entry level into the "floorstander" world. A single 6.5" woofer on the floors, dual 5.25" for the center, and dual 4"' for the surrounds. But this sub I got for a steal and really fills the whole open floor area... even beyond the "living room". NOW... with that said, we are finishing our basement and will have a dedicated family room that is completely separated off from everything else. It has a 5' wide hallway that enters the back of the room. This will have a huge, solid door to close if needed (for sound). The new room will be 16' W x 18' L x 8' H...... So my question is this: How small of a room is considered TOO SMALL for bigger speakers like the RP-280F? I want to maximize my bang for buck. Not just get the biggest speakers because they "fit". We are strongly considering upgrading to the RP line for the basement. I'd like a great home theater experience, but I don't need an overkill. If the biggest, baddest speakers won't sound great in a small room, I don't want to waste my money on them. Does that make sense? We'd like to be able to maximize whatever purchases we decide to make. Thanks in advance! I love the Klipsch sound. :-)
