At around ~$19k after discount plus shipping, that would be a pretty stellar 7.4.4 system. Add in a nice AVR, amp for the LCRs, projector, and screen and you would have a world class home theater for...

This falls right in line with what I saw while watching Olympus Has Fallen at 0 dB MV. I had my cheap Parts Express SPL meter on the "max" setting while watching and it was around 105 dB. I'm sure...
