I have a HK AVR 3550HD 7.1 receiver with old HKS series speakers. The center works fine but the surrounds need replacing and I want towers for fronts. I want to replace the center but it is possible to keep it. I am not sure on budget but would say probably $1200 absolute max and less would be better. I have to buy from Best Buy so that is a major restriction. The room is 15x15 with hard wood floors and 10' ceiling. I have 12 AWG wire and banana plugs. The main use will be gaming, TV and some movies. I love DTS over Dolby and coaxial cable over fiber optic.
Salesman at Best Buy showed me Klipsch and Polk and I did not like the Klipsch but like how clear the Polk were (the fronts were TSX330T and are $70 off for $189 in store until Sun.). He did not show me the Pioneer but I have been thinking about the FS52, C22, BS22 and maybe a Klipsch SW350. The Polk DSWPRO440WI sub is on sale for $325 but I don't know if its better. My 12" HKS sub stopped working and I thought it might be the fuse and took the fuse multiple times to Radio Shack but they were out of them every time and I eventually lost it. I got some on ebay but they look too small and can't find a larger size anywhere.
Since someone on the forum said all FS52s should be used in a system I even thought about getting 7 of them, a sub, and a Repose Bone Rattler gaming chair and putting it in the center of the room and making the ultimate gaming room... but that would be crazy right? I welcome all your suggestions.
