Wow ... can't beleive I found this one. Oh, I'm the OP by the way.
I ended up buying a house ..... and remodeling it. Oh, it's our new home.
And my TV died ... so I bought a 42" plasma that I am picking up on Friday. The place is finally livable. Still need to finish the kitchen but I have a 20x24' room now. Half for my kid to play and half to sit and relax/watch TV.
I'm on a tight budget ... so I'm keeping my ol' SM 65s for the rear channel.
I have an Infinity Primus Center channel (model C25) that is maybe 2 years old. That's a keeper.
For now, I'm thinking of doing a 5.1 system w/ new receiver. I'll need new main speakers and probably a sub. Any thoughts? I think it makes sense to stick with the Primus line of Inifinty speakers to keep the system balanced up front. I can't justify the cost to replace the rears (SM65s).
Any thoughts for which mains to get? I just measured where they are going...
I can actually go up to a 27" tall speaker and they'll work per the wife's requirments. The only other requirment is that if they are ported, they can't be ported to the back as these will be right next to a wall on the rear and one side. I hate being tied to this height requirment. It's way bigger than book shelf size but to short for towers. It has to be shorter than 27" though.
And what sub to get? I probably need to go with a 12" sub due to the room's size. Budget is a BIG concern though. I want something that sounds nice ... but I need it to fill the room.
Let's assume a target of $1200 for the main speakers and the sub. A little either way on cost is fine. I'll be getting a low cost Yamahaa receiver that is 5.1 (possibly 7.1 for future considerations) for about $300.
