AIC25 and HT Installation Question

AIC25 and HT Installation Question

Dear Genelec team,

I'm going to be installing a new 5.1 home theatre system in my living room:

L+R: 1037
C: 1031
Rear L+R: AIC25

I'll be running balanced audio cables from by AV room to the 1037s and 1031 (from my DI8A).

The question is I have is whether I should install the AIC25 amps in the ceiling close to the speakers and run balanced cables to the AIC25 amps, or whether its safe to install the AIC25 amps in the AV room and run regular speaker cable?

The distance between the AV room and the speakers is approximately 10 meters. The cables will be sharing false ceiling space with other cables that I'm concerned will cause interference (electrical cables, KNX cables, ethernet cables, etc...).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Brett.

My recommendation from a practical point of view would be to run the longer speaker cables and have access to the RAM units so you can ensure ventilation and access to the dip switches for calibration.

One of our dealers has done the opposite a few times with no adverse effects.

I suppose you have to weigh up what is important to you.
