I like the setup being presented here. Namely the Onkyo 503/504, Polk r15s x4, Polk CSi25 center, and Athena AS-P4000 sub. Gives me a nice 5.1 setup, and easily upgraded to 7.1 when I have the money for some kicking fronts. I was wondering about a few things:
1) I can't find that Athena AS-P4000 for $150. I can actually hardly find it at all. Also, I read some reviews and it's apparently missing some internal supports and is light and burps the bass out.
Can't post the link, but add (.) instead of (,) and (/) instead of (>)

Should I shop for a different sub, and if so can you recommend something in the $150 range?
2) I'm leaning towards r15s over r150s, because the r150s have rear firing subs and I might decide to wall mount. They're both instock and the same price at Frys (actually, the r150s are $.01 more).
3) Onkyo 503/504s go for ~$150, $169 from ShopOnkyo and $130+ from eBay.
I guess that last question is the main one, is this ~$500 setup still the deal it was 5 months back?
Found the Velodyne 5 speaker setup for $199 + free shipping. Comes to roughly the same total as the r15/150s + CSi25 off Frys. So Velodynes, r15s, or r150s?
Also checked around for other subs. People (and by people, I mean Jakeman02) recommend the BIC H-100 for ~$230 shipped. Since I can't find that Athena, is this my main option?
