Okay so im new here and i dont know much about speakers...I have a new basement which i am planning to turn in to a home theater...I wanted some advice on the sound system i should buy...the size of the room is 31' by 17' so its fairly large i think and HTIB wont provide good sound at all...i Chose the Optoma HD-LV 25 for the projector and a subwoofer and receiver..However i need a good 5 speaker system which will provide good sound for around $1-1.5k..this is for the 2 front speakers,1 centre speaker and 2 surround speakers.
The subwoofer is POLK Audio PSW505 12 inch and the Receiver is Yamaha Rx-V375...so i have about 1000-1500 dollars for 5 speakers to make a 5.1 system complete.
Thank You. :)
I would take a listen to the B&W speakers in your price range...
Four of these and the matching center would put you slightly over, but they sound fantastic. http://m.bestbuy.com/m/e/product/detail.jsp?skuId=1277364&pid=1218246226126&pcatId=abcat0205001
They make a 5" version as well that would fall within your budget and also get great reviews.
There are also plenty of DIY options out there that can really get you a great bang for your buck if you're handy and enjoy that sort of thing.
I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

I would rather get better monitors than lower quality towers for the same price.
Also as mentioned above, DIY is a the best option on a budget.
Go to the waveguide speakers section.
Would the following setup provide decent audio in the space i have mentioned??
Polk audio TSI 400 front
Polk audio cs10 centre
Polk audio tsi100 rear
PSW505 12 inch subwoofer
yamaha rx-v375 Receiver.
If you are listening at mellow levels, probably ok. Loud in that size space, not so much with those choices.
They sound great to me. I brought my stereo snob friend, who has over 10K into his electronics alone and had been listening to B&W 802s for years then downsized to some powered Paradigms you can't even get anymore that supposedly sound fantastic. He was expecting to hear mush, was extremely surprised, said he couldn't hear much difference.
You've got options, hardest part is hearing all of them. I took a leap of faith and it worked out for me.
