This is my new project that will keep me busy for quite a while.
I plan to build a dedicated 9.1.6 HT in our 12'x12'x8.2' tower room on the 2nd floor. Up until now it has been used as a temporary 7.1 setup with no sounds treatment nor cable management.
Marantz SR-7010 for the processing of the 9.1.x bed channels.
Marantz SR-6010 for processing the top x.x.4 and 2 x NAD T743 using PLII Movie to matrix them to 6 height channels.
Center: Monitor Audio GSLCR
Fronts: Monitor Audio GS20
Front Wides: Monitor Audio GS10
Side Surrounds: Monitor Audio GSFX
Rear Surrounds: Monitor Audio GSFX
Top Front Heights: Monitor Audio BX1
Top Middle Heights: Monitor Audio BX1
Top Rear Heights: Monitor Audio BX1
Subwoofer: SVS PB-13 Ultra
The 60" Pioneer Kuro will remain until I can get a 65" OLED.
The ceiling will be the main area in the room where sound treatment can be applied. The idea is to build a 12" tall and 25" wide soffit along the front and sides. The four corners up to window height will get some superchunk corner traps.
Here is the front of the room, the TV is in the right location.
Here is the rear wall, you can see the speaker mounts with spacers still there. When we had work done on the heating system we had the raditor raised so a raiser can be fitted.
Here is the right hand side wall seen from the sofa, thankfully the windows are not in the way for the side/rear speakers that are locted as per pre-Atmos Dolby spec. They will probably stay as they are as currently are in a 7 degree angle up from the front speakers. The subwoofer is taking up a considerable amount of floor space.
And finally the staircase where all material has to be able to come through.
