New Setup

220 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  nutt
I just bought a house and get to finally set up my system correctly. So I want to run it by you guys and get some suggestions.


Direct TV with TIVO

32" Sony TV, with s-video, no component. (This is going to be replaced with a bigger better soon.)

Pioneer VSX-912k (on order be here soon)

Panasonic 5-disc progressive scan DVD

I am going to do 7.1, my room is 20x12.

2 Polk R30's

4 Polk RT15i's

1 CSi30

Aiwa sub (to be replaced)

So, I am doing this myself, with help from friends. I need suggestion on places online to get speaker cable, wall outlets, and other cables. I am not opposed to making my own AV cable if necessary.

Also, I want to do a 2 sub setup, one in opposing corners of the room, can I do this without an amp?

This is probably the best place online to get cables, speaker wire, outlets, etc.

As for your sub question, it will depend on whether the subwoofers are powered or not. A powered subwoofer is basically just a sub an amplifier in the same box, so it just takes a line level input, and you are good to go. If you get passive subwoofers, they will need an external amplifier.
