Well, only 2 weeks before I am home from Iraq and I can get this sucker hooked up to my Samsung 50" B650 Plasma I bought while on leave. I am upgrading sound from a Logitech 5500 computer speaker system that sounded really good to me so I should be pretty impressed with this upgrade.
I ordered my 9100THX
from Newegg before they sold out. My girlfriend was nice enough to accept the delivery of a 140 pound package and wo-manhandled it into the house. (see attached pics). I think she's a keeper ;-)
I have plans to rearrange my living room to take advantage of the length to allow me to place the rear surrounds a few feet behind the couch (see attached diagram).
I'm going to be ordering 200' of speaker wire
, subwoofer cable (15')
, and banana plugs
and have already ordered Sanus 31" speaker stands
for the fronts. I am still unsure what speaker mounts I should use for the rear/side surrounds. I want them mounted to either the wall or the ceiling but understand the speakers are ginormous. I was looking at the ones
at monoprice.com but they have been sold out for over a month now with an ETA of "N/A". I hope they will be getting more in but just don't know when. Otherwise, anyone else know of any alternative mounts for the surrounds at a comparable price?
Let me know if there are any suggestions for my setup at all. I am a newbie and have been trying to learn as much as possible while I am deployed. Any advise or criticisms are welcome.
