I'm having an addition built, the top floor being the family room. It measures 30' long by 20' deep and has a cathedral ceiling measuring around 18'. I'm having a "bump out" built to hold the 65" Hitachi which will also have side shelving units. I'll house the electronics on one side and stuff on the other. This is centered on one of the 20' walls which leaves approximately 4.5' feet on each side.
The listening area will basically be to couches running perpindicular to the bump out with two lounge chairs at the end basically making a U shape area.
I've purchased a Pioneer Elite VSX80TXV as the receiver. For speakers I went with the LCIC (inwall center), TC265I (inwall fronts), TC80I (in ceiling surrounds), and two PSW303B subwoofers.
The subwoofers will be placed in the bottom corners of the bump out. The fronts obviously will be on either side of the TV, around 4' high and approximately 8' from each other. I went with the in ceiling TC80Is since I don't have wall space available on either side of the listening area. One side being a stone fireplace the other a large archway into the kitchen. This is where I'm having a bit of a placement problem.
My thought is to have the in ceilings about a foot wider than the fronts. This will be a spacing of approximately 10' - 11' between the two surrounds. The plan is to place them on the ceiling where they will be basically pointing down along the outer perimeter of the listening area.
How does this speaker setup sound? Would appreciate all input.
