Hello everyone! My home theater is finally at the point where I can post it here

I am an 18 year old university student at the UofA, and I would like to say I have the best system of anyone my age :P (That I paid for!) (Except the laptop)

It started as two old Wharfedale Diamond III bookshelves and an old Sony amp from my dad, and I've upgraded it all myself to this over the last 4 or 5 years. Yes I started young!

Heres my current setup:

Front- Klipsch Rf-5
Center- Klipsch Rc-7 (Yes it is damaged, the previous owner got it that way when he bought it online. He fixed it up pretty good, and with some fine sharpie it's fairly unnoticable) (and yes the tv is on top. I figured if i can stand on the speaker it can hold a 60lb tv, and it's already pretty beaten up)
Subs- Klipsch rw-10, SVS SB13-Plus (Yes it's in strange spot. But it sounds AMAZING at the main LP. Get off that couch and the spl's drop a fair amount. But how often do I have more than 3 people seriously listening to it? Not often.)
Sides- Klipsch SS-1
Rears- Klipsch Rf-15
Receiver- Onkyo 7.1 85wpc
Blu ray- Samsung Wifi enabled
Games - PS2, Xbox 360
Power center- Monster HTS 1600
Tv- Lg 55" LCD 1080p
PC- Asus 17" Gaming laptop
Satellite- Shaw HD box (non pvr)
Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard
750gb external HD
Speaker cable/connectors- All hdmi for video sources. Monoprice banana plus, hdmi's, and RCA-3.5mm cable. Monster sub cables, energy speaker wire.
Custom Beer Pong Table
Stacked Beer fridges



























Any suggestions or comments welcome!

Very nice setup for a college setup. My only suggestion would be to move the rear speakers further apart and forward. Just to add some distance between them and the pong table. Drunks and nice equipment don't mix well and it would be sad to see a nice set of speakers get beer rings on the top of them.
