    Default 5.1 HT setup for small room

    Hi guys,

    Need some help in setting up a HT in one of my smaller rooms in my apartment.

    The room size is H-10.5', W-12.5', L-13.5'.

    Plan as of now:
    TV - 47" LED LCD
    Receiver - Denon 1910 (read a lot of good reviews about it and also gives the option of going 7.1 at a later stage)
    Speakers - Polk RTi A3 for front and rear and CSi A4 for center
    Sub - Polk PSW 125

    I'm just confused if i should be getting these speakers or scale it down to A1's because of the size of my room.

    I plan on having the viewing distance at around 9'.

    Can anyone please give any suggestions if this sounds like a good HT setup or it is too much for this size room.

    Thanks again in advance.

    I fully support the RTia3s. From what I've heard, the 1's don't sound nearly as impressive.

    That being said, if you find yourself pressed for budget, you can also check out the RTi line, as they're quite similar and can be had for less.

    Welcome to ClubPolk! Look forward to hearing your impressions, and seeing photos!
