Background: Started planning to install a home theater into our new living room (as best I could) when we undertook a major home renovation. I'm coming off cheap sound bars and half-decent headsets prior to this, but I always wanted something better. Since planning started, I've been learning, taking the time to get placement as close to dolby's 5.1.4 spec as possible, and buying components.\nWe gutted the level of the house, insulating and building up from the crawl space up through the new living room and kitchen. It went from a beat up kitchen and useless living room space to an open, nice space for the family.\n\nAfter all the planning, I landed on the following\nLG CX 77" OLED TV\nDenon AVR-X3700H\nMonoprice Monolith 3 (for LCR)\nFluance RT84\nRevel Concerta2; F36 towers, C25 center, and M16 surrounds\nSanus SF34 stands with adapter plates made out of white PVC sheets\n2x Rythmik L12 subs\n4x Klipsch R1650-C in ceiling Atmos speakers in foam speaker baffles surrounded by insulation\nAuralex SubDudes\nLG UBK90\nAll in-wall wire is 12 gauge stranded OFC\nCouch and ottoman are from LaZBoy (Devon sectional, not sure about ottoman but it has storage in it)\n\n\n\n\n\nFor power, I have a separate 20A circuit just for the receiver, amp, and subwoofers. Both circuits have a dedicated Panamax MR4000, while the TV is on a Panamax MIX-SURGE-G1 surge protected outlet. Second sub is on a Panamax MD2 surge protector. I cut out a shelf so I can keep all the power and network gear hidden in the right hand side of the TV stand.\n\n\nAnd yes I know the rug pad is sticking out. I'll cut it once the rug settles more.\n\nSome other improvements to the room include the dimmable, color selectable recessed lighting, and better insulating the entire level (R-30 under floor, R-15 walls, and two layers of R-30 in the ceiling).
