I am in the framing stage of a basement HT. I have been trying to place an order on speakers so I can plan accordingly. I want to do in-wall. (I Know - most of you don't like these). I want them for a nice sleek look in the room and the room is smaller, so I think it will be fine overall. I am not an audiophile (sp?), I just want to enjoy shows and movies with nice surround sound at affordable pricing. I don't need top of the line, but I want it to be moderately impressive to friends. In-wall speakers are hard to shop for when on a budget. Some of you have recommended Dayton. Here is what I am thinking (none of this is bought yet, so all still up for debate). Your thoughts are encouraged. - 55-60" Plasma (not yet determined brand/model) - Onkyo TX-SR608 - on sale for 399 which seems like a great model for fair price - Hooking up your standard stuff: HD Cable box, Blue Ray, Nintendo Wii, PS3 - Center Channel: on sale $131 -- US520MTM 5-1/4" MTM LCRS in-wall speaker - L/R: US620W 6.5 2-way in-wall: pair: $168 - Rear: I could do more of the 6.5 and put them on the rear side walls facing in to the room. Or, I could do a pair of ceiling speakers, thinking maybe these: US850C 8" LCRS 15 degree angled ceiling speaker, which are 250 for a pair. I have a spot I can put a subwoofer behind a wall and do a grate (cold air return looking thing) to hide the woofer. I was thinking of just putting one back there, and not "building" it into the wall, but I could do that if I had good directions/installation instructions from someone's post. I was hoping to stay low end price-wise for subwoofer ($250 max for powered sub). Would you do a Dayton? Or do you have recommendations? thinking probably 10" So, I was thinking for receiver plus 5 speakers and sub maybe: $900-1,000. I know most of you would say I need to spend more, but please give me suggestions within 10-25% of my numbers! - I really appreciate the help The room is 15x13, in the basement, and currently all walls are studded and exposed, ready for me to run electrical and speaker wires.
