I respect the opinions i see here - please offer your comments on this proposed BIC America 7.1 system I'm thinking about assembling - on a very tight budget. Let me know if I've put together compatible pieces - if not, let me know what to change to make it right / better.


Will be using a Sony STR-DN1010 receiver (100 watts RMS/channel) in a 14' X 15' room w/ 9' ceiling; hardwood floor with area rug on the center 50%; 70" Vizio TV & Sony BluRay DVD; 50% TV, 40% movies, 10% music. (and 60 year old ears!)

center:

BIC America DV-62CLRS 6-Inch 2-Way Center Channel Speaker

front left & right:

BIC America DV62si Bookshelf Speakers (Pair)

surround sides & rear:

Bic America Adatto Dv52Si Adatto Indoor/Outdoor Speakers (2 Pair)

subwoofer:

BIC America F12 12-Inch 475-Watt Front Firing Powered Subwoofer

I would ditch that subwoofer. Remember that it is 150 watt rms and 475 peak. If it were me on a tight budget I would forgo the surrounds and sides and stick to a 3.1. Spending the money on a good sub instead of a 7.1.

watts should not be the determining factor when looking at subs, especially when looking at budget subs. overall design and their sound is more important.

That is a great starter budget surround system.


Your room isn't too large at only 1900cu. ft. If the room closed off or open to other rooms?
