Have you considered going with no center? I've been doing that for tv watching upstairs with a pair of PSB Alpha B1's and don't miss the center at all. You do need to sit close to the center though...

That sub from Klipsch is an absolute steal at $180! It's worth more than the $250-$300 someone suggested. I've had a Klipsch Sub12 but currently have the Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Plus. I would happily buy...

I think they will be great for using in the garage. $200 is steep imo. See if he'll take $125.

Would you mind telling me the values for the caps and resistors needed for the B1's? I just picked up a mint pair off cl for $140 and am happily surprised how good they sound. But they could be...

I've owned Polk RTi4's and Csi3 combo. That center is poor imo. I would look at something else. Just not quality sound. And for that matter I would avoid the Rti4's. They are decent for music but I...

For now I would lose the sub, run the L and R full range, and set your crossover at 100hz for the center. When you can do it I would suggest picking up a Klipsch RC-3 off ebay. You can find them for...

You're saying an AVR (which he has no need for as he only wants 2.1) that costs half the price as the Yamaha integrated is going to sound better? You're implying that an avr with more power than an...

Well I guess I am going to have to buy a good DVD audio disc and try it out. Any recommendations? I feel like when I'm at a concert I'm not listening to surround sound. I'm listening to stereo. So...

Yes there are lots of options at that price. Even more if you went up to $400. But you want something loud that will fill a bigger room for parties. I'd suggest the HSU bookshelves. I've had them and...

You should try both ways and see which sounds best! You may find it sounds better with the Adcom powering your fronts, especially if you're also running a center and surrounds.

You should be happy with that setup! As far as placement of the rear surrounds I think putting them on your bookshelf will be fine. Close together is fine for the rear surrounds. You didn't mention...

You do not need front ported speakers but you'll want to place rear port speakers a foot or two away from the front wall. Actually it's best to get any speaker away from the walls.

I've had both but not at the same time. Both are good sounding speakers. I never once thought the BS22's were harsh. They are laid back and it seemed like the treble rolled off early imo. Tweeter was...

I had 685's for a time and was amazed how "big" and "full" they sounded. Definitely off the wall on stands will sound better. I'm not sure that receiver in 2 channel stereo is doing them justice. I...
