Forum Title: Kitchen Sound System
A customer has a 39-inch wide, 28 deep alcove in their kitchen. We're going to replace what's in there with deep cabinets below, and a TV and sound system, in the top part. The idea is to be able to watch TV in the (large) kitchen, and get a significant improvement in sound compared with the Bose radio sitting on one of the counters, without needing or wanting to have a system to blast during a party. The ceiling inside the alcove is 91 high - we can mount the TV high, but I don't think it belongs all the way at the top. The alcove is next to the passage from the kitchen to the dining area, and everything needs to be flush-mounted or mountable in a shallow recess, out of the way of traffic but easy to access, all at chest level or higher. We can put some small directional speakers up high. There's no room to put a sub-woofer or other components elsewhere in the room. This is not my area of expertise at all. It feels to me that something like the home equivalent of a car sound system would work. Budget - it's a very nice home, but the owners aren't interested in an audiophile system. The idea is to be able to listen to music and watch football games in the kitchen. The new custom maple cabinetry in the alcove (above the deep pullouts below) will be designed around these choices. As the alcove is 28 deep, there's plenty of space to do whatever we need to mount hardware, run ventilation out to the top, whatever. I'd appreciate any suggestions about systems - brands, specific models, how to arrange speakers to get good sound out of that setup, etc.
