  • Purchasing home theatre system, help

    Hello Tech Talk Forum,

    Today I am here because I am starting to plan the set up for my home theatre system starting with the system. Now I am like most other people we all love watching movies and listening to music but actually knowing what are good speakers to play the music or have that outstanding surround sound is a different ball game.

    The room I am renovating into a home theatre is 8m long x 4m wide x 3m high. At the bottom, we will have a large projector screen to cover the end wall and a projector hanging from the ceiling. Now what I need from you guys is a good surround sound system that would project enough sound over this area and will have awesome quality also if music sounds good coming from the same speakers that would be a bonus. Then if you guys could imagine he box room I have where would you position the speakers? I have a budget of $2000 for the whole speaker system. All I keep finding are systems like these http://www.used.forsale/onkyo-home-theatre-system and I just don't think they will cut the cake if you know what I mean.

    If there is any other information you guys need please comment below and I will get back to you all asap. Really looking forward to speaking with you guys all information and help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Here at TechTalk we're pretty much dedicated to DIY, at least as far as loudspeakers and subwoofers are concerned. We like to build our own.

              Be careful Tom! I was in the same boat as you two years ago and ended up building a set and now have built amps, subs, a pair for an uncle and have 2 pairs on the go now. Also bought a table saw, measuring microphone and all sorts of other gear.

              It is a heck of a lot of fun!

                    Tom, several "knock-down" cabinet speaker systems sold by P-E and Madisound will fill your room with high-quality music and home theater easily several times better in sound quality than any $2000 worth of speakers you purchase at a store. There are some good sounding speakers sold at stores, but they'll cost much more than our "proven designs" to sound as good, and all of these are kits you just use yellow glue and clamps or even masking tape to hold together the enclosures until they dry. Tell us a bit about your AVR or amplifier(s) and we can guide you more. Welcome!
