why making things so complicated. Why not just a soundbar? Maybe this is all is needed. But if you say people are watching from the loft, then I think you need a big screen tv as well. Just my thought on this.
Got a weird problem here...my loft has 40 foot ceilings. The speakers for my TV are on the top of the TV (Sony KDL-40EX500, an older TV I've had forever). The ceiling slopes upward from about 25 feet where the TV is located up to 40 - 45 feet above the top tier of the loft. It's hard to explain, but the loft has three tiers, it is all open. The second floor is about half the depth of the ground floor, and the third floor is about half the depth of the second floor. But again, it is all wide open, no walls except the exterior walls.
The sound goes right from the TV all the way up, and not directly out to the living area. Consequently, I have to keep the volume on 99, and I can barely hear it in the living room, but on the second and third floors, it is so loud it is unbearable.
My neighbors have been complaining about the noise. I need to find a solution.
I'm thinking maybe wireless speakers? There are two posts next to the sofa where I could mount them, but I don't want huge cords stretching across the living room.
-Does this sound like a viable option, to keep the sound near our heads so we could turn the volume to a reasonable level?
-If this is the best solution, what kind of wireless speaker system should I be looking at? I'm a total newbie -- I don't even know how they would plug in, or work logistically.
-Is there possibly a better solution? All I could think of was perhaps hanging a shelf above the TV to keep the noise coming back down rather than filling up the whole house and annoying my neighbors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as both myself and my neighbors are desperate for a solution here!
