I am expanding my space and creating a listening space for myself. The area is 12’x12’ with one of the sides open. Attached is a picture of the floor plan for this space. It is the open area where you see the l-shaped couch.
Here is the deal: I am thinking about doing a surround sound setup in that room and there will be a speaker in the bathroom and speakers in the bedroom as well.
Does anyone have any experience with in-wall speaker solutions that sound good? I have heard some before and I have always thought they sounded like crap, but it has been a while.
Also, I am looking to dedicate a HTPC computer and run a media app which will be j-river:
So does anyone have any experience with a setup like this? I would like a nice system since I listen to music all the time (the stuff I am mixing and released music) I just don’t want cube speakers hanging off the walls. Who knows… maybe there are god solutions that look and sound good. Oh, no Bose!!! LOL
Ok, to wrap up:
office: 2 ceiling/wall speakers
bedroom: 2 ceiling/wall speakers
bathroom: 1 ceiling speaker
personal listening area: Surround system: rear speakers in wall or ceiling. Standing front L-R-C and sub is fine.
a few sound cards for all the zones/speakers
a few multi-channel amps to drive everything.
Any input or experiences greatly appreciated. The listening room is my biggest priority. I want it to sound good, but it doesn’t have to be hyper accurate like my control room.
