Nobody said the OP will swim out of the swamp with near-field placement. I said that he might get away with one sub keeping it near-field. Of course, all goes in vain if near-field means null. No need bowing your head to somebody's words of wisdom.

I suspect that much of design is simply matter of opinion, like local code requirements, there are some things that are required and needed, but how its done beyond that is just preference. To me, a single 15" sub seems a bit big. 2 - 4 of those sounds like buying a tank to go bird hunting. I am not an 'audiophile', I just want a decent, solid setup. Now, thats what I told my installers so...maybe thats what they are focusing on.
A single 15" sub sounds big, but you would be surprised to know that in most cases that it is not enough, but that really depends on what kind of bass you like. I have 4 15" subs in my large room and it still is not enough, but I am a basshead. This is really not something you can teach somebody, everybody really has to learn on their own. Again in the beginning when you begin building your H/T system, somethings sound like allot, but as you get rolling along you realize what people were trying to tell you and that is when the word "upgrading" begins. I would say that 90% of AVSers come budget minded and simple and wind up getting addicted and before you know it, you have a dedicated theater with 4 JTR Orbit shifters suppling the bass and you are still looking to upgrade biggrin.gif

One way to tell what kind of bass you like would extend back to your youth. When you were younger or maybe you are still young, did you like pounding bass in your car? If so, you are going to need multiple 18" subs and lots of power. If not, then maybe 2 10" subs with 300 or 400 watts will be enough for you. 2 subs are always recommended, for a number of reasons, but mostly for smoothing. Also, you are going to want to use a single Coax cable for your subs, 14awg is not going to work, so be sure you are wired correctly for subs. Some subs do accept speaker wire, but you want to use coax cable.

I have coaxial run to two locations currently for sub setup. The entirety of the audio will have to be at or under 2500, including receiver, surge protectors, and everything needed that is NOT a tv. There are no exceptions to this now. Just not really wanting to spend more than that. I have other hobbies that need funding!

Also, don't go crazy on the receiver. Something like a Denon 1913 or 1713 from accessories 4 less will work just fine. Spend most of your cash on the two main speakers and subs first. A good 2.1 beats a cheap 5.1 any day.

For wireless airplay just use an Apple TV or get an airport express.
