"Breaking the bank" varies from person to person. For people to help, need to give some budget estimate. Also, do you need a receiver? Full 5.1 setup?

You should not ignore used speakers. They often age very nicely and can be obtained for a fraction of the original cost. Many older speakers sound as good or better than modern ones...just a thought.

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

My budget is 4000 to 5000 and I do need a receiver! I will look into used speakers. Boston accustic is selling refurbished speakers. Are they a good brand?

Are you looking for towers or book shelf? Is a sub to be included in that budget? 5.1 or 7.1 system? Does your room layout well for mounting surrounds on the walls? Shoot us an email and we would be happy to help you with selection.

The room itself is about 25X30. My budget will hopefully include all audio components, including a sub. I don't have an idea about 5.1 or 7.1. I am still learning at this point. I will email you later today. My space could handle any set up for the speakers. I like the look of in-wall(ceiling) stuff, but if it effects the quality of the sound or the cost to much. I am game for anything. Thanks

From working in an audio place I would look at the mirage os3 floorstanding speakers, center and rears. Omni S10 sub. Maybe a Denon 2312 or Yamaha 810 for a receiver. I also always recommend what I have....Definitive Tech 8040's (Towers, Center and Rears) and a Denon 3312. Mirage might be a little better for a bigger room due to their omnipolar technology to fill the space with a good sound field.
