Ok guys -- after a lot of reading -- I am about to jump on the eD bandwagon (errr ... waiting list). Here is my setup:
TV: Samsung HL-S6188w (61" 1080p DLP)
A/V: Denon 2807 (110w/ch -- 5.1 -- I use it as a two room as it drives my outdoor pool speakers as well, so no 7.1)
Sources: Dish Vip622 HD-DVR, Tosh HD-A2, Wii, Xbox 360.
Fronts: Klipsch SF-1s (budget, entry level line)
Center: Klipsch SC-1
Rears: B&W SOLIDs (already hard mounted -- not planning changing these right now)
Sub: Klipsch SW10 (10" driver - 150w powered)
This is my main living room setup -- the room is about 28 x 26 with a vaulted ceiling that is 10' tall at its lowest and close to 30' at its highest.
The Klipsch speaks are all from my first A/V system (purchased in 1999 when I purchased my first DVD player -- for $400
) when I had an apartment, and they will be relegated to the basement gaming room along with the 360.
I am planning on ordering the following:
Fronts: A6-6T6- Towers
Sub: A3-300 or A5-350 (can't decide - need help)
What are people's thoughts on the sub. Is the A5 worth the extra $$$?? I was trying to keep the cost about $1000 (with the A3 it will be about $950 with the A5, closer to $1100). The A5 puts me over slightly. I am not looking to melt my ears or shatter the subfloor (or -- more likely -- impart a lot of vibration to my HD-A2 and other equipment as it is playing). But Alex @ eD (who I spoke to on the phone) suggested that a room the size of mine needs more base than the A3-300 can deliver. To me 300w and a 12" driver sounds huge compared to what I have now. This review of the older A5-300 (which sounds a lot like the current A3-300) makes it seem like the A3 will deliver a lot of bass.http://www.hometheatersound.com/equi...igns_a5300.htm
Anyone what to offer any opinions? Anyone have experience with the two different subs?
My main use is HT, some music (played off Sirius or Ipod) and gaming.
