  • new home theater build

    Hi all, great group here. I have an opportunity to build a new home theater in a basement which has just been gutted due to flooding. I have done a couple DIY speakers (existing plans only) but i am looking for is there a recommended DIY HT speaker setup, I get this can be all over the the place but looking for something simple and effective. My room is 15' wide and 20ft long. i am down to the studs so could be in wall as well. I was thinking, 2 front, 2 sides, 2 rear, and 2 atmos, with 2 subs (not sure what that equates to in channels).
    My initial thought was to do a 3-way like the In-Khan-Neato ( i did this for a two channel in wall system with great results). I was also then thinking maybe the Overnight Sensations might be enough as well. I am not sure on the subs but probably one of the dayton audio ones or a Marty sub.

    Any advice or tips or guidance is appreciated.

    How much cash will you spend?
    What are the exact dimensions of a box that you can work with?

      i am trying to stay below 500 per speaker which i think would offer up some pretty good options. The size i would like to stay smaller than bigger but i can adjust the space or go with three seats instead of four if need.

    If your basement flooded,,,,, I’d put my money into a good sump pump system FIRST! 😈

      yea, we had some earthen dams fail which caused a 500 year flood (well the governments terms). I am increasing the insurance rider in the fall for the next time.

      DIYSG and owner ErichH are active at AVSforum. DIY speaker sub forum. Huge amount of crazed HT enthusiasts there.

      PE sells some of his flat pack speaker kits under the Denovo name.
