My first home theater setup

Recommended Posts

I am most of the way done with my home theater setup. My room is not ideal but it is all I have to work with. The main room is 12x8 with a kitchen connecting to it in an "L shape." Please forgive the messy cords and cinder blocks as I am still setting up. I still need to choose a reciever that will run 4k and my rear speakers. I have to mount them to the back wall. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Klipsch recommended rs-42ii or the newer 402s speakers for the rear. Do I really want to do that? I thought those were more designed for side channels in a 7.1 setup. I currently have a pair of 160Ms, a 62ii, and a sw112.

@SnakeOil,

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

Looks like you are on your way to some AV enjoyment.

Looks like good choices for that size room.

Their main design function is for side surrounds but can also be used as the rears.  If you go just 5.1, then I would place them on the sides slightly behind your ears in your main seating position.

 

Enjoy.
