I seem to be at a bit of a dead end when it comes to putting together my home theater. I already own a Denon X4000 and I'm trying to get a speaker setup to match for a new basement home theater construction.
The room is approximately 25x13 (7.5 ft ceilings). I'm still pre-drywall so placement is still very flexible. My budget is around $3k, but for the right package I can maybe squeeze a little more in without my wife noticing.
Some of my decisions at this point are:
Whether to get satellites for the front or tower. And to spend more on 5.1 and get the extra speakers at a later date (i'll pre-wire for them).
Whether to get 1 larger sub or 2 medium subs. I have a crappy sub laying around from a Sony HTIB that could maybe do some backup work, but I wouldn't count on it.
I have access to an employee discount at ABC warehouse through a friend, but their selection is really limited and I haven't seen anything really positive said about their inventory here.
Any help or advice is appreciated!
