I am restoring an old theatre (was originally sunday school)
here is the project -> www.thehallexeter.org
I need a sound system that is sensitive to the building by being non-intrusive. Usage will be cinema, acoustic music, speech, talks, debates, theatre etc. No all night raves or miced up drum kits.
I was advised to look at the bose system (room match etc) for the size but need some advice on how they will sound. I would really appreciate any help of other suggestions. I have been given some alternatives but they look pretty ugly or are quite big boxes bolted to the side of the wall, however I don't was to go for aesthetic over quality. What are you views?
Here is a google sketch up of the space :http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=739a8f282dceffddef1c62608cd40c95

Freespace 203 rear surround
