great ideas. I think I found one that will work well. The Logitech Z-5500 or 5540
The 5500 is a 500 watt system with a killer sub. I can easily set the speakers wire using 12 gage and run up to 25 feet. Should be interesting Gemmy will be here next week so maybe the following weekend will be my first ever movie night !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You will find that outdoors, the speakers will sound amazing. It has to do with the fact that inside, something like 90% of what you actually hear is reflectd off the walls. Outside, 90% of what you hear is the actual speaker. Even my little, tiny HTiB speakers sound great outside.
