If you don't mind attaching a driver and amp you get great bang for buck getting a kit from Part Express, the cabinet's already complete:

Speaking of AH - This is my profile there:

So many options. How about the HSU VTF-15H? Audioholics review say its a great value for 879.

all HSU subs are of great value, especially at introductory or sale prices

HSU VTF series are great since they could work for maximum extension - aka movie mode or maximum output - better suited for music.

This flexibility is not something commonly found.

Speaking of musical subs - Rythmik Audio subs are great too, FV12 currently on sale at $499 is good solid choice.

But if HT is your main concern - you need to look for most power at lowest extension. By far my favorite 15" subs would be: Rythmik FV15HP, HSU VTF-15H and eD A5-350

What other equipment would you suggest besides a/v receiver, speakers and subs? Should I consider a power amp, line conditioner etc? I want this to shake my house down

Final set up here...?

Yamaha RX-A2010BL (a/v) $1,194.99
Infinity Primus PC351 (C) $250
Infinity Primus P363BK (FL,FR) x2 $400 <-- Thinking about replacing this with something better as someone mentioned it is one of the most important channels.
Infinity Primus P163 x8 (SL,SR,SBL,SBR,FPL,FPR,RPL,RPR) $680 <-- Probably taking out presence channels and replacing the cheap Primus FL/FR
Rythmik FV15HP (sub) $1199

The Rythmik seems like the best all around sub. I think one is going to be enough

$3723.99

I'm going with this unless anyone else has any objections, recommendations or suggestions. I've appreciated everyones input and I feel like I've learned a lot. agisten you opened my eyes to real subs, Thanks

My advice is keep the front 3 the same. If your going to get Infinity Primus 3 way center then get the Infinity Primus 3 way Towers for front l&r. Front 3 need to be matched. My opinion is that, that is way too much to spend on a receiver for the amount of money you allocated towards the speakers. Having said that tho I have the Onkyo 808 which is an $1,100 receiver but I only paid $563 for it.

Man, that is a lot of speaker. How big is your room? Do you really need a 11.1 system?
1. Don't let people talk you into stuff you cannot afford. There is always better out there, but you have to try to get the best for what you can afford. 1200 dollars for a sub? Unless your room is HUGE, a 15 inch sub may not be necessary. I have a 8 inch sub in 15 x20 room and it does fine!
2. You are spending 1200 on a sub, and 650 on your LCR...maybe that ratio should be reversed? Most HT experts will say the L-C-R are the most important component of the HT...that said, I like the Infinity Primus line a lot!
3. It is your money and your system and the system you have picked out will sound amazing, I am sure...so don't listen to me! Just suggestions...

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

Just for reference here's my system:

Onkyo 808 retail $1100 I paid $564
Sony BDP-S570 retail $170 I paid $150
LG 60" PZ750 retail $2200 I paid $1486
Z-Line Vitoria Stand retail $400 I paid $300

Future purchases:
2 - PL89, 1 - PL28, 4 - PL66 retail $2450 with shipping I will pay $900
2 - Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Plus with shipping I will pay $1240

That's a total of retail $7560 I will pay $4640

I'm definitely not an audiophile and I have been using a 7 year old Dell 5.1 system that is missing 2 speakers<..>. but I just want to make things simple and be able to switch between devices quickly...
