Can anyone tell me if there are any current sales on the Pioneer SP-BS22-LR speakers? I know they are sometimes on sale for around $80 but right now the lowest price I can find is $127. Also, which of the following would be my best option:

1. Four SP-BS22-LR, a SP-C22 center and a subwoofer (BIC America F12 subwoofer or a Monoprice 12")
2. Two SP-FS52-LR , two SP-BS22-LR and a SP-C22 .
3. The Energy Take Classic 5.1 speaker system.
4. The Monoprice Premium 5.1-Ch. Home Theater System with Subwoofer -10565.

The basement we will be placing the speakers in is "L" shaped and is approximately 12' by 30' in the section we are going to put it in (with a total of approximately 600 total square feet with open doorways into another room approximately another 200 square feet). The ceiling is approximately 7' (drop ceiling). They will be hooked into a Denon AVR-1613 receiver which wiill be connected to a 50" 1080p Panasonic plasma TV (TC-50PS64) and will be connected into DISH (Joey). We will also have a blu-ray player hooked into it and we have a Wii and PS3 that will be hooked into it sometimes. We will be using the receiver mainly for home theater with occasional music (70/30). We are by no means audio/music experts....just want something that sounds good to our untrained ears. Thanks in advance!

Here are your speaker lists with detaiils interspersed and discussion below:

For a room this size the AVR is OK for the space, but any of the 3" midrange satellite speakers are going to probably come up short. The single 4" L&R speakers are going to come up short.

Any system that lacks a 12" subwoofer is going to come up short

Best place to find that out and/or ask would be the owners thread for the Andrew Jones speakers: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1278774/pioneers-speaker-genius-hits-low-price-point

Depends on what you think is OK.

Apply the comments and what results will be really pretty good! ;-)
