Definitely go with JBL's in the front. But you'll need the matching center.

The closer to the TV the better anyway. :)

Just make certain that the speaker is not recessed back in on the shelf, or you can get reflections that will hamper dialogue clarity.

Yea. I think if you want a sealed sub, then you buy a sealed sub designed to be one, rather than a ported design which allows you to plug up the port.

Or you could get the Rythmik LV12R sub from Ascend. There's a package price that gives you a discount (throw it all in the cart and see).

I have an Outlaw sub (not the M8). I would suspect that the M8 is just as good a price performance value as the SB-1000, with the SB-1000 being the better sub overall because it's a higher class.

Agreed.

The Rythmik sub will be unbeatable at it's price, and is definitely a much better performer than cheaper subs. Don't downgrade your sub to spend a lot of money on surrounds since...

Or maybe just a good bluetooth speaker that you could carry out to the pool as needed and keep by the pool? That would allow you or anyone else, too, to pair the speaker to their phone.

Agreed. The CBM-170 SEs will be a very close timbre match. So doesn't make sense to go with the DefTechs unless there is some other very good reason to.
