Room dimensions: 19x24'
Budget: $2500


Was considering a Bose 135. Don't hate me!!!

Want to know what the "experts" suggest.

Need a wireless sub, that's really only request.

I have a dedicated theater room. Looking for a good 2.1 or 3.1 set up for kids who will watch movies here.

Here is one setup that will work well:
Denon AVR2312Cl $612
Infinity Primus p363 x 2: $336
Infinity Primus c351: $279
Hsu Research VTF15h subwoofer: $1022
Outlaw Audio OAW3 wirless subwoofer kit: $149
Total: $2398 shipped which leaves room in budget for cables an accessories. Get your cables from monoprice.com so you don't get overcharged. The kids will love that setup, especially the subwoofer.

Since this room is mainly for kids, or family viewing - do you prefer towers,
on-wall or bookshelf speakers? Where is the sub going to be placed, and
how much bass are you really looking for > is this for head-banging levels,
or for mainly entertainment?

Bookshelf type smaller speakers.

Sub hidden behind curtain or under couch, out of sight.

Mainly for entertaining, not head banging.

Denon receivers are good. I would go to a slightly lower model receiver than the Denon AVR2312CI and get the Outlaw LFM-1 EX with the kit instead if you can't afford to setup to the larger sub otherwise. You have a really big room to fill with bass. smile.gif
