Okay, so I am new to the forum. But I wanted to thank everyone that participated in this thread. It really sold me on the following items:
BIC PL-200 Acoustech Platinum Series Subwoofer
BIC PL-200 Acoustech PL-28ll Center Speaker
BIC PL-200 Acoustech PL-89
I did not want to spend or have a lot of money to spend and the reviews here were really helpful. Using Amex points, did I mention I got the package down to under $400 out of pocket. Free Amazon Prime shipping. I hope these are as good as everyone said!
I am keeping my rears for now, older set of Boston Acoustic's, if these new ones work out, they will be replaced with PL-66's or HT8W's. I am thinking the HT because I can hide them in the wall. Recommendations here would be appreciated.
I am using an older Yamaha RX-V667 receiver which I will eventually upgrade. But for now this is it. I am no true audiophile and I feel a little trepidation when it comes to tuning the speakers. I figure I'll use the tuning mike and then I have to break them in and retune them again and then make manual adjustments from there. It's making the manual adjustments that is worrying me because I have never done this before. I'll have to figure it out.
I'll post back once the break in period is done. Oh yeah, I am also taking back the Definitive center I recently bought because I wont need 2 centers. Saving some money there too!
Now to start looking at receivers. We watch a lot of movies and listen to music when we have a party, so that will be the primary use here.
