I am helping a family friend work on his pole building. He decided to turn 1/3rd of it into his little mancave/party room. We are at the point of starting to put up wood panels on the inside and he has decided that he want's to prewire it for some speakers to use now or in the future. The building is decently sized (36' x 36' x 14' high ceilings). I attached a quick sketch of what he is planning. Mancave.pdf He was thinking placing 6 speakers at the locations marked with an "S". They will be around 8' off the floor.
What would be a good speaker to utilize for this setup? It will be used for general music (he want to be able to hear people talk when they are playing (he's 60), and volume for the tv during football games, etc. He does like listening to mostly rock (will most likely play his Sirius XM source through the).
I don't have much experience with this, so all recommendations would be helpful. The first idea he has was to use Bose 301's, only because that is what I use in the little sports bar I help run. They work good for low level music and for later in the night when people want it louder.
After that, what would be the best way to power them? He is looking to have the same source through all speakers. This is the part that I need the most help with. Would just a receiver work or should we look into getting something a little more robust?
