What is your budget?

What are your listening preferences?

Thanks.

Yes the Sub-1200 or the Sub-1000 would be better.. preferably 2 of them, maybe add one at a later date...

IMO there are better speakers than the TSi at that price point. What price can you get them for?

The HTD Level Twos for example are better...

You should always get a center that matches your mains...

Does it matter if the 4 surround are different from center and the two front..

The is going to be my setup:

A Pair of Polk Tsi300B for the Front
A matching center if I found one
And 4 Definitive Technology Procinema 800 for the surround.

The Matching center to the TSi300's is the Polk CS10 and they are widely available in the USA just follow the links above.

Surrounds don't have to match the front 3 but without matching front 3 you are really missing out. Thats why you should get the CS10

Thanks Guys..

How good is this Dayton Sub 1200, I see it has a lot good reviews.

Are reviews a marketing stunt or is it that good?

For the price there is nothing better. Its a good subwoofer for its money. Its that good. Spending more money would get you a better subwoofer but that is how it goes.

You could also try the Lava LSP12, email them that you are a AVS Forum user with your user name and they might give you an additional 15% off the already low price of $170
