Trying to set up the man-cave in our unfinished basement. Have a good projector that should be hooked up this weekend. Its a large open space with high ceilings. Im thinking the deal in the OP might be a bit of an overkill. Can anyone recommend a good sound setup for watching movies and gaming/VR.

Thanks.

Is that 1600 cubic feet taking into account the high ceilings or square feet? If your room is really 40'x40' this would under kill for a room that size.

Dolby recommends ceilings between 7.5 and 12' for Atmos enabled speakers (ceiling bouncers). 14' is max, but appears less than ideal. I'd suggest installing height speakers or overhead speakers instead if you can. The height/ceiling speakers are for effects only and it's generally accepted in the home theater community that they don't need to be big or expensive to perform their role.

Not sure I agree with that. These Klipsch with 8" woofers will put out massive amounts of sound - more than most speakers in the same price range. And typically, no matter the size of the room, most home theater speakers are going to be pointing at and calibrated for sounding good at a main listening position (I.E. one specific sofa).

Speakers are ok, don't let the price make you think they are worth it. Also receivers change so much, I wouldn't pay more than 500 because technology is always changing. If you really want this deal though,you should find a store that has them and listen to them. Klipsch is known for their ear fatigue but I heard they added rubber around tweeter which fixed this but every person's listening is different. When I was out demoing speakers i thought the cheapest Polk towers sounded better than klipsch speakers, but that's what sounded good to me. FWIW I bought the JBL 590s when they were on sale and love them,happy shopping.

if you really want best value for your money, the 1099 or 1299 at diysoundgroup.com or just about any speaker from there will blow away my 590s and these klipsch out of the water. just need to build it yourself if you can. I myself am gonna buy the 1099 when they come back in stock and move the 590 to the man cave

What cubic ft, taking in ceiling into account? 14 feet is definitely pushing it for bouncing off the ceiling, especially if it's not flat. The speakers itself will do a wonderful job of filling a very large space.

The new RP line for Klipsch sound incredibly good, dynamic.

I get your point but if his SQ foot estimate is correct I doubt these speakers fill the space. I am not discounting the efficiency of these speakers but that room is a small auditorium. My point is that he questioned if these were overkill, which is absolutely not the case for that size room.
