YES, I want your help with the speakers and receiver. The only items I have already purchased are:
Projector = $2,400
Seating location and 12 theater seats = $5,100
TOTAL SPENT = $7,500
I have around $7,500 left to spend on the following items (next to them is what I think they will cost):
-Receiver (around $1,200)
-2 Subs (around $1,100)
-4 Surround Sound Speakers (around $2,000)
-2 Rear Speakers (around $1,000)
-Center Channel Speaker (around $900)
-2 Front Speakers (around $1,300)
Things I have not budgeted for but might need to find some money for is a screen in case the speakers need to go behind it. I was just going to finish the drywall out smooth and use the wall as the screen.
My reason for getting a Super Cube was my brother has a friend that sells them and can get me a couple of 4000 for around $520. He can also get me Yamaha RX A 2040 for $1175. However, I'm COMPLETELY open to other brands and prices, so yes the budget above can be modified if needed.
If this was your theater room, where would you place the speakers? What ones would you use with the budget range I'm in?

Second Supercubes are way over priced for the amount of bass output you get. This is a dedicated theater room why not look for a subwoofer from Outlaw, HSU, PSA, Rythmik, Reaction Audio or SVS. Internet direct companies will yeild you alot more bass for your money.
As for placement of the speakers that sounds good except for subwoofer. 2 on back wall and 2 slightly behind or to side of middle row
If you want us to recommend other speakers please provide us with a total budget of what you are willing to spend on speakers and/or receiver.
