I remodeled my living room toys a couple of months ago with a 60" Zenith plasma, Onkyo RC-360, Energy Take 5 Pack, and an old 230W RMS Onkyo sub I had laying around. I took my old 1000W Onkyo HT-R520 down to my man cave and hooked it up to a old pair of big antique Kenwood speakers. Now I want to upgrade the man cave. It's a big room. 16x35 or so with a bar and a pool table and Fireplace. I want to try a Take 5 Pack as surrounds, BIC F12 for a sub, and maybe my big old Kenwood JL-890's as mains? It will only be used for music for now. My old Onkyo reciever is an old 7.1 beast. No HDMI but it will drive anything. If/when I get a projector down here I'll upgrade it, but for now it's mostly radio and mp3 files from my computer. I'm half deaf from shooting guns so it's ultimate purpose is to impress my hick friends and make people that wasted their money on Bose jealous.. Take 5 Pack $149 now at Egg, and BIC F12 $188 or so. Can I go wrong at those prices? Maybe another Onkyo RC-360 in the future. Is this an ok plan? My room size scares me. I can put my sub in the middle under the pool table if that helps. Hmm, maybe put my old Kenwoods in the back of the room to fill it out as rears and let the calibrate mic figure out what I did?
