    Also, I must say that having speakers at ear level, except for the sub of course is a must :)

    not to mention that there are so many variables like room size, shape, objects that can reflect/disort/destroy/decay/reverb/anything sound etc etc, you can allways purchase a $20.000++ system or more, but if your room is not treated acusticly it wont sound like it.

    i think is best sudgest how to set up the room properly and then give advice on how to setup speakers, since dimentions and shapes rule out first how waves travels, not speakers.

    ive heard some 200 usd speakers sound really good because of room sound treatment alone, now image what can be achieved with some hi-end speakers-amps-soundcards etc.

    This^ :) I think that if I could, I would put some sort of wall insulation and totally make the sound reverberate from not only the walls, but floor and ceiling :)

    The KRK's i've had they sounded even incredible using outside in our backyard. :D

    Is it that important that the speakers are at ear height? Next week i'm gonna order a pair of M-Audio's BX8 D2's, i could use some boxes to make it sit higher, would that make any difference?

    It does come with some pads.

    connectivity and space req. are good, but that's still nice waste of money :)
    could be good for watching movies in a small room.

    proper sound bar is still not a proper speaker. let alone speaker(s)

    Thats way too much money for that , doesn't matter how much it is it wont change the fact that it is a sound bar and that not much they can do with one do to their size. For Virtual speakers Plenty of sound cards have that function that are cheap. Unless its Dolby Atmos then that be something different but not 1k+ worth.

    For that price you might as well just get Two pairs of floor stand Cerwin vega speakers or some other brand speaker. And a good receiver and a sub and save the rest of that money for something else.


    I run a 2.0 setup my self with my Yamaha RX-V367 a d Sony SS-B1000 speakers that is plugged into my gustard X12 RCA out's and they still do the job even after 7 years of owning the Speakers, it just that it time for me to invest into a sub because it shows now.
