Hi, I need some help from ppl with experience using active speakers in a largish room as their home cinema setup! Basically my room is 21' by 14' - screen on the narrow wall and seating 10' away. I was considering an active setup using these components: 5 (maybe 6) Blue Sky SAT 6.5s, a Blue Sky SUB12 and an NAD T163 Pre-Amp Processor (would like a Lexicon but not within reach!!!) Now: got a couple of issues (or unanswered questions). The blue skys (like any active monitor) are described by everyone as near-field monitors and imply a listening distance of 3 to 5 feet in a studio enviroment - I don't want a studio but i'll be 10 feet away!! Anyone thinks (knows) this will be a problem? Has anyone used a Blue Sky Sub12 in a similar sized room? Specs say that freq. response is fine in room up to 3000 cubic feet - mine is under that, but i still wonder as the thing seems smallish. I heard it in a 12' square room and it was super - but no home demoing allowed this side of the world! Alternatively i could get an SVS - but still no home demo! And finally - The NAD - it does not have balaced outputs, meaning i'll have to run a couple unbalanced 30' rca leads (gulp). Will that pickup radio bagdad?? I would like to use XLRs but the only pre-amps with that spec cost too much (for me). Thanks - any input will be appreciated!
