    Hi

    I am wondering have anybody any experience with the klipsch r5502-lcr speakers or kilpsch speakers in general . I am thinking of going for 3 together behind a acoustically transparent screen and maybe 2 Klipsch RP-240S-BLK as back surrounds.

    Has anybody any suggestions of this system or a similar system with in-walls at the front?

    My room is about 4m by 6m with 2 rows of seats if that helps the answers.

    Thanks in advance.

    the MK IW150`s really will take some beating if within your budget

    you get the sound almost exactly like the S150 but flushed inwall, its a great system

    @warjam1945

    I'd second the MK IW150's having heard them at @Ideal AV they take some beating!

    Obviously depends on your room and if you've started prepping for in - walls you could try the MK MP150's, which have been very recently reviewed, and attach them to the wall and put your acoustic screen in front of them.

    I've done this recently for a friend in a garage home cinema set up and again they sound superb and a lot easier to install then in-walls IMO!

    hi guys, thanks for the reply but these are way outside my budget. I am trying to stay below 1500 for the speaker setup at the moment. Is there anything you would recommend in this range?

    yeah, its 1500 with the subwoofer and the amp is a Onkyo TXNR838. I am going with that amp because of Atmos support.

    A 4m x 6m room is a good size. Atmos should work well in there. You'd want good coverage and a response that's well balanced off axis as well as on.

    A few options. If you could go on wall with slimmer profile options that could work really well.
