Your front three are more susceptible to differences in timbre because as effects pan across the front you will hear the difference. This is not the case with subs at all, and not an issue with...

Knowing that, then those Boston P442s would be a good choice. I would still recommend going with that SVS sub, it will really make a difference in the quality of your viewing experience.

I would look into getting an acoustically transparent screen instead. This allows you to mount three identical speakers behind the screen at the same height, this is the most ideal setup.

Yes, when properly placed and calibrated, a good pair of speakers will create a nice image and give the illusion of a center channel. I ran my towers without a center for a while, and while I now...

I would stick with the Sierra-2, only use the Horizon if you need a horizontal center speaker because of placement issues. Horizontal speakers, even well designed ones, can still introduce lobing...

That is most likely the price per speaker since they are typically sold individually. They really aren't the best speaker for a t-amp though, 6ohm impedance and an 87dB sensitivity mean you need a...

I recommend starting with a 2.1 system. You can get a better foundation to start, and in the end will have a nicer system.

For a receiver, the Denon AVR-E300 is a good choice, it has some good...

Radioshack speaker wire should work well. I have seen several people on here use it in addition to Monoprice, which I use myself. The shipping is high because a big roll of wire is not light. If...

If you are using a sub, you could go with a nice pair bookshelves instead, and then grab a second sub. Something like the Ascend Sierra-2 and a pair of Rythmik F12s would be wonderful.

Hey there and welcome to the forum! I think the EMP's are an excellent choice, neutral sound with a strong mid-range and fantastic dynamics. For the money it is hard to beat the performance you...

Honestly I would probably forego a center in this situation. Putting it so high up will not be good for acoustics, nor will it look good with a big center hanging over the TV. The only option I...

Those speakers have a good sensitivity, so the t-amp should do fine with medium volumes, but I wouldn't expect to crank it up. You will be hard pressed to find towers at that price, I would...

This is a very tough decision. The Ascend probably gives you a more dynamic sound stage with the MTM speakers, but the HSU's are horn-loaded and also offer great dynamics. The Ascend are going to...

The HB-1s are horn-loaded, and will probably be less neutral than EMP. They should play a little louder and have better dynamics, but the mid-range will be superior on the EMPs, and from what I have...
