I have finally seen the light and upgraded my sound system(I had a Bose). What i have now is a Panasonic SA-XR50 receiver with a Athena LC100 Center Channel, Quest QB6NX front speakers, Quest subwoofer, and Athena WS-15B Rear Channel. Right now it sounds MUCH better than my old system. I also have an HDMI switcher attached to my TV for my PVR, HDDVD player and 360.
My first question is whether or not I have a proper setup here. Or should I see if I can find some WS-15's for the front channels as well. I am running 16 Gauge wire to all of them.
My second question has to do with wiring everything. I have such a spider web of wires in behind my TV and reciever that I am wondering if I use nylon ties to hold them together so its not such a mess. Is this going to be an issue for the signal quality for both the audio and video?
One other question. Does it matter with the quality of the cable? I see that monster makes a XP cable with a "plastic" sleeve down the center that apparently allows the Bass/Treble to travel at the same rate? Also does it matter which direction a cable is plugged in? My Sub cable has an arrow and I figure that meant signal direction, so i plugged it into my receiver's audio out. Not sure if that will cause an issue?
Sorry for the long post but you guys are the pro's and helped me realize my errors!! Thanks again!!
I hope i posted this in the right spot. I did read other posts but they weren't what i was wondering.
