Ok. So, I've been slowly piecing together a modest HT over the last few years, with no idea what the final room was going to be like (in planning to buy a house, which I finally did). As it turns out, the TV room is pretty small (10'8"W x 16'L x 8'H, in a finished basement), with the viewing/listening area being only about 10'8" x 11'. We may knock out the wall between this room and its twin at some point, but that's years down the road.
My conundrum... Look at the rendering below (which took me hours to make). Being that the rears are going to be practically like wearing headphones at the sides, I wanted to go with FXi3/FXi5, figuring they wouldn't fire directly at me. Problem is, I have that open doorway on the back-right wall (about 3' wide, right up to the ceiling), which negates mounting on the rear wall and which might possibly cause a dead spot with the side-mounted FXi (if I understand them correctly).
Kind folk of Polk. I beseach thee. Will bipole/dipole still work for me, mounted on the sides? If so, FXi3 or FXi5? If not, do I concede and go with RTi 4 or RTi 6? If so, which?
This is primarily for HT.
I appreciate your benevolence.
PS - For a sub, I'm pretty much already sold on the SVS PB12-ISD (The cylinders won't fit. :D )
