Hi all,

I read the forum a lot but have only just got round to posting.

I've sold my old system and bought a new one as I'm moving house.

The new lounge is a rectangle with large double sliding glass doors on long side and TV on short size.

It's not very big so I wanted to go for a cracking 5.1 system with inwall speakers.

I'm going to stick the rack in the garage so should be very clean.

I went for a Onkyo TX-NR818 and 5 x Definitive Technology DI 6.5s, all in the post at the moment smile.gif

What sub to choose:

The speakers say 26Hz - 30kHz, 10-200w and the amp's meant to be 180w per channel all at 8 ohms.

26Hz is lower than most of the subs I've considered. I'd prefer 20Hz of course.

I assume I still need a sub but how do I match them best.

Considering a Audioaccess/JBL Dual 8" in wall 30Hz-100Hz max amp 250w input.

Thought it would be worth trying to run it off two of the amp channels.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Budget is tight, second hand is awesome but willing to save up until I can get the right sub.

I'm planning a secret door in bookcase to garage where the rack will be. (opposite wall to the glass doors)

So would consider making an enclosure as a door with the bookcase in front.

Books might fall off thought and I'm concerned it will rattle on hinges and would be better in the wall.
