Hi All,

 

Need some help... New to AVS and kinda new to the Home Theater set up....

 

We are in the process of building a new house that will come pre-wired for 7.1 surround sound in the media room. Luckily I am taking some equipment from our current home (E.g. surround sound receiver)... but I was wondering if anyone could recommend any speaker packages to buy for a 7.1 set-up?

 

I have a young (ages 10 and 6) family and they simply don't appreciate high end sound set ups but enjoy movie watching, so I am looking at something middle of the road price wise. Recommendations appreciated... in case you are wondering... the builders AV Rep simply charges way too much for what they install, hence I am not using them apart from pulling cables.

 

Also would appreciate any suggestions on projectors. Again considering my family needs/wants I am looking for a good (not expensive projector system set up. From research the choices are varied and many.

 

Appreciate any input.

 

P.S In case you are wondering the equipment I already have was given to me by my father in law hence I don't know much about what's out there.

A full set of 7 NHT Super zeros and a sealed sub in your price range. I'd check the forums on speakers and subs.

Check out monoprice, they have some decently priced in wall speakers that tend to get good reviews. They are rather inexpensive but perform decent from what I've read.

Oh, sorry.

I have not heard any in-ceiling that I like. No imaging - have to imagine where those front speakers sound is coming from.
