Mounting TV and installing 5.1 system in "new to me" house. The room is 11.5 x 22 ft.

The following have been proposed by an installer for my project. Bear in mind that I will be using a Denon AVR-1910 as the source. And he will be mounting, running wires and cables and installing a Furman power conditioner/ protector and a Tripp Lite surge protector.

http://www.pinnaclespeakers.com/S-FIT_SOUNDBAR.html $399

http://www.pinnaclespeakers.com/subcompact8.html $349

http://www.definitivetech.com/products/promonitor-800 $250 pair



For this price range what are your thoughts?

Will this give enough oomph? How will it handle playing music? Honorably?


What is the use for Cat6 wire?

Thanks

Depends on how badly you want aesthetics/footprint over performance for $. That's a very small sub for a large room (and it's overpriced). The specs on the soundbar aren't very impressive; there's only so much sound you can get from 3 inch drivers....even the surround speakers appear to be more capable.

You going to have bare floors as it appears? That won't help.

Why do you want a power conditioner? Might want to read this thread http://www.avsforum.com/t/1258060/are-power-conditioners-worth-it.
