very budget component build below; let me know what you think. on the fence between something like this and the Onkyo HT-S6300 HTib.


Onkyo TX-SR608 7.2 receiver

Polk Monitor 50 (or 60) fronts

Polk CS1 (or CS10) center

BIC Dv52Si rears (2 or 4 of these, not sure yet)

BIC America V-1220 12-Inch sub


Anyone got better alternatives for these components (must be similar price range)?


Are the Monitor 50s much worse that the 60s? Just have one less woofer, not sure if it makes a difference or if 50 may be better given power applied?


This will be in front of a 60" plasma, probably a 5.1 setup for now (heck i may put up a 7.1 though but room doesn't make great use of it). room is almost square, 14' front wall, 13' deep, back wall 18'-- all seating (couch + 2 lazy boys along back wall, pulled maybe 1 foot away). thanks!

what price does your DIY setup add up to? remember to figure shipping costs too.. If buying online, some places get ya on those.

around $900. some fantastic deals out now. thinking about going with the CS2 center now, and definitely the Monitor 60 fronts. still in the air about surrounds and sub is between Bic F12 or 1220.
